Over the past few years, there has been a mass exodus from the liberal state of California, with even A-list stars jumping ship in search of a better life. Back in 2021, the former Rocky star Sylvester Stallone became the latest celebrity to do this when he picked up and moved to Florida with his wife Jennifer Flavin and their daughters.

Now, his wife is speaking out to say that she has no regrets about making this move.

Flavin ‘Really Happy’ With Move

“It’s an incredible move, I have to say I’m really happy with our move and our change,” Flavin, 55, recently told Fox News.

“I was born and raised there, two of our kids were born there, but now everyone’s out, our daughters moved to the East Coast … so there wasn’t really anything left for me in California,” she continued. “A few of our best friends also moved, so I think it’s [a] good change, just making new friends, living a totally different lifestyle, I love it, I’m really happy.”

Stallone, 77, himself also addressed the move at the beginning of his Netflix documentary Sly.

“I wasn’t moving because ‘Oh, wow, I wanted another beautiful view,'” he explained. “Any time changing that paradigm which you become used to, it’s literally to jump-start that process again.”

Though many celebrities have said that they have left California because of the crime there, Flavin was quick to say that this is not why her family made the move.

“There’s crime everywhere, there’s crime in Florida, too, so I didn’t move because of crime,” she said. “You can find it anywhere you look, even in small towns.”

“I think California is probably the most beautiful state in the United States, I absolutely love it, but I just needed a change,” she added. “I felt like I’ve been there long enough, and life is short, so I wanted to make a change and not just be sitting in one house the rest of my life.”

Dean Cain Flees California

This comes after the former “Superman” star Dean Cain fled California to start a new life in Nevada.

“I love California. It’s the most beautiful state,” Cain, 57, explained to Fox News earlier this year. “Everything’s wonderful about it except for the policies. The policies are just terrible. The fiscal policies, the soft-on-crime policies, the homelessness policies.”

“The things that our leaders in California have been doing have driven out anybody who can really afford to get out,” he continued. “People are flocking out of there in droves.”

Scott Baio Ditches California For Florida

The former “Happy Days” star Scott Baio also recently fled California to move to Florida due to rising homelessness and crime.

“I see people… When I drive with my kid, I gotta turn her head away. She’s 14 years old. I see people defecating on the sidewalk,” Baio lamented during a call with the Clay & Buck show. “You see people in parks shooting up. There’s people passed out everywhere. I mean it. It’s not the isolated. It’s all over the place. And I’m about ready to get out of the state. So, you know, just so you guys know, that it’s no joke out here.”

“I think, probably since Governor Newsom, it’s really gotten bad, and maybe a little before that. So, maybe four or five years ago,” he continued. “It’s just… It’s out of control, guys. Listen, I’ve been here for 45, almost 50 years. I’ve seen this place go from an absolute paradise into a cesspool…”

In the end, it’s easy to see why so many people are fleeing the radically liberal state of California. If the leftists running California want to keep the likes of stars like Stallone, Cain, and Baio in their state, they might want to start rethinking some of their policies.
