It’s pretty safe to say that Olivia Wilde won’t be casting her vote for Donald Trump in the upcoming presidential election – or ever. In fact, she thinks the real estate mogul is “really sickening.”‘
The 31-year-old actress Ã¢â¬â who holds dual citizenship with Ireland through her father Ã¢â¬â attended an exclusive screening Friday of Robert De NiroÃ¢â¬â¢s short film debut, Ã¢â¬ÅEllis,Ã¢â¬Â which gives a haunting account of the struggles faced by immigrants.
Ã¢â¬ÅIt made me think of the current refugee crisis,Ã¢â¬Â Wilde, 31, told Page Six of the film. Ã¢â¬Å[America] was a beacon of hope for so many Ã¢â¬Â¦ yet some in this country have developed this xenophobia that totally conflicts with what weÃ¢â¬â¢re based on.Ã¢â¬Â
Ã¢â¬ÅThe fact that we can have someone running for president who openly projects that xenophobia is really sickening, particularly when you look at a film like this and remember our roots,Ã¢â¬Â she added.
She has a point, no? I’m actually looking forward to seeing “Ellis”. Are you?
