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 — who holds dual citizenship with Ireland through her father — attended an exclusive screening Friday of Robert De Niro’s short film debut, “Ellis,” which gives a haunting account of the struggles faced by immigrants.
“It made me think of the current refugee crisis,” Wilde, 31, told Page Six of the film. “[America] was a beacon of hope for so many … yet some in this country have developed this xenophobia that totally conflicts with what we’re based on.”
“The 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,” she added.
She has a point, no? I’m actually looking forward to seeing “Ellis”. Are you?
