Fresh off her stellar performance at the CNN GOP debate on Wednesday, Carly Fiorina has yet another reason to smile.

The former Hewlett-Packard CEO and GOP presidential hopeful has scored a Hollywood endorsement from actor James Woods.

Woods went on Twitter Thursday, to let the world know he’s supporting the rising Republican star. Woods has also narrated the Fiorina documentary, “Citizen Carly,” produced by the Super PAC supporting the candidate, CARLY for America.

While his support is free, the voiceover is not.

The hour-long doc is scheduled for release in the key battleground states of Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina and Virginia next week. A wider rollout is planned in other places soon after, Super PAC representatives told TheWrap on Thursday.

“This is the true and full story. Not through the lens of liberal reporters, but through the lens of the people who have known her for decades,” Steve DeMaura, executive director of the PAC said in a statement recently.

By most accounts, Fiorina was the winner of the CNN debate, held at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, California on Wednesday evening. But, she’s yet to secure many Hollywood endorsements. However that could soon change as the candidate continues to surge in polls amid positive debate reviews.

A long-time Hollywood conservative, Woods also took the opportunity to make a dig at Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton Thursday morning, tweeting, “Is she still running? Election 2016: Hillary Clinton’s lead over Bernie Sanders cut by half in national poll – CBS”

This isn’t the first time the Academy-Award nominated actor has poked fun at Clinton. After the former secretary of state’s appeared on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” last week, Woods tweeted a picture of her dancing with the caption: “This is Clinton campaign answer to potential criminal charges. Nice Reboot…”

Reps for Woods did not immediately respond to TheWrap’s request for comment.
