BAKER NOT COOKING UP A CAREER IN POLITICS

The Daily Telegraph (Sydney) 2 Mar 2018

ACTOR Simon Baker is making Aussie men look good on the world stage.

Having stared in US hit series LA Confidential, The Guardian and The Mentalist, and blockbuster movies including The Devil Wears Prada, Baker is undeniably one of the biggest Aussie success stories in Hollywood.
Featuring on the cover of GQ Australia this month, the accomplished actor weighed in on the hot topic of the moment — the MeToo campaign that is exposing misconduct in the entertainment industry.

“It’s the great shakedown and it’s about time. It’s very simple: every person deserves to feel safe in their work environment,” Baker told GQ.
“We just have to understand how we eradicate bad male role models. It’s long overdue.”

Like many of his acting colleagues, Ballina-born Baker highlighted that while the spotlight of the issue is on his industry, the epidemic is not limited to the entertainment world.
“As usual, things in the entertainment industry get far too much attention,” he said. “But it’s been happening forever, in all forms of business — the misuse of power by men.”
The handsome star said the world was in a time of great change.
We seem to have lost the notion of leaders — in Australia, whoever’s leading is constantly looking over their shoulder.
“Politically, there’s a revolution going on,” Baker said

“I wouldn’t say just in the States, but here, too. We seem to have lost the notion of leaders — in Australia, whoever’s leading is constantly looking over their shoulder to see that the party isn’t going to pull them down.
“And that’s really no way to use your energy for positive change for the country.
“They just keep playing this game of wedge politics. One says something and the other tries to throw him off his game. And when there are great opportunities to work together on something, it isn’t happening. It’s all very childlike.”

But Baker shut down any suggestion that he would run for a political role.
“I think if there’s one profession that’s more scurrilous than entertainment, it’s probably politics,” he said
