Dean Cain, known for being one of the only openly conservative stars in Hollywood, recently spoke out about his decision to leave California.
Cain had spent decades living in California, but he moved to Las Vegas earlier this year. Over the past year, Cain has been vocal about the liberal culture he experienced while living in the West Coast state. In a recent interview with Faithwire, Cain opened up about what he referred to as the “debauchery” he witnessed while living in Hollywood.
“I have my opinions,” Cain said. “You see a lot of debauchery in Hollywood. I’ve been debaucherous myself; I’ve done things that I’m not proud of. I’ve asked forgiveness for those things and I’ve mended my ways. There’s just so many things about being there.”
He added, “You don’t find a whole lot of [Christian faith], certainly not openly, in Hollywood. That’s why I make all of the faith-based films that I make, because I want those messages out there. … I think those movies are really important.”
Cain went on to explain that though it’s possible to live a “godly” life in Hollywood, it’s much easier to do so away from that world. This has been a big reason for his shift into making faith-based films. He believes these films can have a positive impact on people’s lives and that they’re very important in today’s world.
While making faith-based films is often a challenging task, Cain is committed to making films that “stick with” audiences and can speak to different experiences. He also opened up about his personal relationship with God, describing it as a “process”. “I believe it’s a natural thing, and everybody’s relationship with God is subjective, it’s unique, and the way they get there … is their own journey,” Cain stated. He further elaborated, “And I’ll just say, God and I have a lot more conversations now than we did when I was 25.”
Before moving to Las Vegas, Cain described California as having become “crazy” in terms of taxation, regulations, and the laws that were being passed. He expressed his disagreement with the direction California was heading and the decision to move came as a result of that. In his city of residence in Las Vegas, Cain found a sense of peace, significantly lower costs, and a quieter lifestyle, which he says has brought him happiness.
Finally, we are all happy for Dean Cain’s newfound happiness in Las Vegas and his dedication to his faith-based work. We wish him all the best in his future endeavors!
