Actorfilmmaker George Clooney has reacted to presidentelect Donald Trumps comments about Oscarwinning actress Meryl Streep after her speech at the Golden Globes.
She criticized Trump in her Golden Globes speech about empathy on Sunday. In response, Trump called her “one of the most overrated actresses in Hollywood”.
Clooney, a staunch Hillary Clinton supporter and former costar of Streep, addressed the controversy at a reception hosted by The Clooney Foundation for Justice Monday here.
“I’ve always said that about Meryl. She’s maybe the most overrated actress of alltime. She and I worked together on ‘Fantastic Mr. Fox’ as husband and wife and I will tell you even as a fox, a female fox, she is overrated,” he said with a smile, reports people.com. “Aren’t you supposed to be running the country?” he asked Trump rhetorically.
