On Wednesday night, cameras panned to the 41-year-old actor seated in the audience with his Russian model girlfriend, Irina Shayk. His mere presence at the DNC seemed to irk some Republicans,
who knew him for his role as Navy SEAL Chris Kyle in the 2014 biopic, American Sniper
. The film was directed Clint Eastwood, an outspoken Republican, and is considered by some to have a conservative point of view.
