Many were shocked on Saturday morning by a post at The Times titled “Michael Sheen quits acting for activism.” It doesn’t hide the news or make it seem like words were taken out of context, leading to many sites — including this one — to run with the news that Michael Sheen was leaving Hollywood behind to take on the Far Right, partially thanks to quotes like this:

“In the same way as the Nazis had to be stopped in Germany in the Thirties, this thing that is on the rise has to be stopped,”

“It will be a big change for how people relate to me. Once I’m in, I’m fully in, and this is big. As soon as you start to be effective, then people try to crush you, because it’s dangerous.”
