Ted Cruz supporter and Hollywood actor Clint Howard compared Hillary Clinton to a "a bitter old grandmother" in an interview.

Howard, the brother of liberal Hollywood actor, director, and producer Ron Howard, made the remark during an interview with The Daily Beast

"It's a little sad to realize that in politics your looks play as important a role in such an important job," Howard said. "Television came into it and John Kennedy looked so good on television and Nixon didn't. That kind of changed everything.

"When they look at [Clinton] I believe what they're going to see is a photograph of a bitter old grandma. Eight years ago I don't believe that would have been the narrative. But I don't think she can help it. I don't think she can put on enough makeup to change people's perception of her."

Howard noted that Clinton was leading in the polls during the 2008 presidential campaign before Barack Obama took the lead and, eventually, the presidency.

"She's only gotten older, and the sadness of looks being a part of it… I'm not sure America's going to elect a bitter old grandmother."

After announcing his support for Cruz, Howard traveled to Iowa and worked a phone bank ahead of the Iowa Caucus.

In 2011, Howard said Hollywood conservatives are singled out because of their political views.
