George Clooney targets Donald Trump with an expletive, exclaiming “f*ck you,” in a new interview. He also has harsh words for Steve Bannon, as well as Hillary Clinton, despite supporting her in the presidential election.

While promoting his new movie Suburbicon in a chat with The Daily Beast, Clooney was asked to weigh in on some political issues, particularly since the film deals with race relations. Towards the end of the interview, the Oscar winner and activist rants about Trump vilifying Hollywood while he’s a Hollywood elitist himself. “This idea that I’m somehow the ‘Hollywood elite’ and this guy who takes a sh*t in a gold toilet is somehow the man of the people is laughable,” Clooney complains. He goes on:

“People in Hollywood, for the most part, are people from the Midwest who moved to Hollywood to have a career. So this idea of “coastal elites” living in a bubble is ridiculous. Who lives in a bigger bubble? He lives in a gold tower and has twelve people in his company. He doesn’t run a corporation of hundreds of thousands of people he employs and takes care of. He ran a company of twelve people! When you direct a film you have seven different unions all wanting different things, you have to find consensus with all of them, and you have to get them moving in the same direction. He’s never had to do any of that kind of stuff. I just look at it and I laugh when I see him say ‘Hollywood elite.’ Hollywood elite? I don’t have a star on Hollywood Boulevard. Donald Trump has a star on Hollywood Boulevard! F*ck you!”

Elsewhere in the piece, Clooney rips Trump for how he handled the Charlottesville protests and for his stance on the Confederate flag. And, as reported earlier this month in a preview excerpt, the actor also declares, “Steve Bannon is a p*ssy. Steve Bannon is a little wannabe writer who would do anything in the world to have had a script made in Hollywood. He wrote one of the worst scripts I’ve ever read.” He adds, “Here’s the truth: If Steve Bannon had Hollywood say, ‘Oh, this is really great, and a really good script,’ and had they made his movie, he’d still be in Hollywood writing his f*ckin’ movies and kissing my ass to be in one of his f*ckin’ films! That’s who he is.”

But perhaps it’s Clooney’s criticism of Clinton, as revealed in the full article, that’s most surprising. “She was more qualified than even her husband was when he was elected president, but she’s not as good at communicating things. That’s simply true. When she got up and gave a speech, it didn’t soar,” he argues. The actor further says, “It was frustrating because I never saw her elevate her game. I never saw it. And I had a lot of liberal friends who were like, ‘She’s not good at this.’ And I see that, and I understand it. I also think, though, that if it was a guy it wouldn’t have been so polarizing. I think the fact that she’s a woman made it a much harder uphill battle.”
