Whoopi Goldberg Found It Hard To Get Work After Bush Remark

Comedienne WHOOPI GOLDBERG struggled to get work after she slammed U.S. President GEORGE W. BUSH at a Democratic fundraising event in 2004. The Sister Act star was vilified after comparing the American leader's name to a crude term for a vagina. In the aftermath, she was dropped as a spokesperson for diet aid company Slim-Fast. And Goldberg is relieved such a "scary" time has now passed. 

She says, "After the supposed remarks I made, it got very difficult to get work. It was scary. "I've taken every president to task, but I started thinking, 'Do I stop being political?' At that time no one was saying anything that wasn't in step (with the Bush administration). "It's OK now to be an American again. It's OK to get the dialogue."
