The address, also known as the “Empty Chair Speech” received widespread criticism from both Republicans and Democrats. The empty chair was to represent an invisible President Barack Obama as though they were having a hypothetical conversation.
The 82-year-old actor, whose film “Trouble with the Curve” opens this Friday, said he was simply expressing his feelings during the address. When he was asked if he would speak again he said: "I never look backward. It’s done and it’s done. I probably would. I wouldn’t be afraid of it."
