Beyonce made headlines last year for being casted for the leading role in the remake to A Star is Born. The singer initially expressed that she was excited to be a part of the project, so many were a little confused when the singer confirmed in a public statement that she was dropping out of the film. While Beyonce cited “schedule conflicts” for the reason she was walking away from the film that is set to be produced by Clint Eastwood, many people just aren’t buying that Beyonce could not find a way to make time to star in another movie, especially since acting is something she really wants to do more of.
While some suggest she is pulling out of the project because she is pregnant again with her second child with husband Jay-Z, it’s already been confirmed by Jay-Z himself that Beyonce is not pregnant.
But one plausible cause comes from recent gossip we heard that suggests that Beyonce pulled out of A Star is Born for political reasons. Apparently, everything was cool until Clint Eastwood decided to speak at the Republican National Convention. Some insiders say that although Beyonce has no beef with Clint Eastwood personally, she and Jay-Z feel that they have contributed too much money, time, and support to the Obama/Biden 2012 campaign for her to work with such an adamant Romney/Ryan supporter. Allegedly, the singer just feels it wouldn’t be a loyal move for her to make a movie with the same actor who actually made a speech at the RNC.
