Ayn Rand and the Celebrities that Love Her


Mother Jones highlights a few "celebrity fans of the cult of selfishness." Christina Ricci? Eva Mendes? Who knew. Here are a few:

Angelina Jolie: "I just think [Ayn Rand] has a very interesting philosophy…You reevaluate your own life and what's important to you."

Christina Ricci: "My favorite book is The Fountainhead…I relate to it because of the idea that you're not a bad person if you don't love everyone."

Vince Vaughn: "The last book I read was the book I've been rereading most of my life—The Fountainhead."

Rob Lowe: "Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand is a stupendous achievement and I just adore it."

Eva Mendes: Any potential boyfriend "has to be an Ayn Rand fan."
