Former Sen. Rick Santorum (R-Pa.) had some criticism for the movie industry during an interview with Yahoo! News.

"It’s a tough business,” Santorum said. “I find a lot more honest people in politics than I do in movies.”

The former Republican presidential hopeful was named the CEO of Echolight Studios, a faith-based film company, in June 2013. By the end of the year, Echolight released “The Christmas Candle" -- its first movie under Santorum -- based on a novel by popular Christian author Max Lucado and starring singer Susan Boyle.

Santorum told Yahoo! he's not done with politics, saying he's "certainly very open" to a 2016 presidential run. Santorum has expressed similar thoughts before.

“The fact is, we have a good track record of success and we think we have something to say that’s different than others," Santorum said.
