Despite playing a former House member in the 2016 film "The Congressman," George Hamilton said he has always steered clear of politics in real life.

The legendary actor, who turns 80 this month, revealed during an interview with the Hollywood Reporter Friday that he has never exercised his right to vote.

In fact, Hamilton believes that it's irresponsible for actors to share their opinions on political issues entirely, because entertainers "have no qualifications."

"They're given an unusual amount of credibility," he said. "A lot of young actors do it and they shouldn't. The political (people) are happy to use your persona."

The former "Dynasty" star continued: "I think it's unfair to the voter."

Despite staying out of politics, Hamilton admitted to having one memento in his living room – a red "Make America Great Again" cap personally gifted by President Trump.

As far as Trump's faux tan? "I think he slops bronzer on and hopes it'll last till the evening – easy to put on, probably a spray tan: less fussy and camera-ready," said Hamilton, who is famous for his constant tan.

Hamilton prefers natural UV rays. "I think you need 15 minutes in the sun everyday," he told Oprah in 2016.
