For all the disclosures former President Richard Nixon makes in "Frost/Nixon," director Ron Howard has one of his own.

Howard says he voted for Nixon in 1972.

"Yeah I did," Howard said at a discussion following a Hollywood screening late last month. "You see now, that was a long time ago."

Five years later, Nixon granted English journalist David Frost the famous four-part interviews, upon which the film is based.

Howard supported Democrat Barack Obama in the 2008 election with a viral video in which he said, among other things, that he'd voted for both parties in the past.
