Before you go revoking Anthony Mackie’s Black card, the actor wants you to know he is not a Donald Trump supporter. Monday afternoon after his interview with BET angered fans and caused Black Twitter to go off, Mackie tweeted:

Sorry Donald, that wasn’t an endorsement. Just a bad attempt at a joke, I guess?

During the interview for his new film Our Brand is Crisis, Mackie was asked if he would rather run Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump’s campaign, and he said Trump without a doubt. “I would 100 percent want to run Trump’s campaign. 100 percent. I mean, first that’ll be the best party ever when he won, and second, Trump’s an easy sell.”

Mackie, who plays a campaign manager in the film opposite Sandra Bullock, also went on to say he felt like Trump “worked his way up from nothing.” But, Mackie had a whole other response about the Presidential candidates, particularly the Republicans when we talked to him during the same press junket. 

HipHollywood asked Mackie if he was optimistic about this crop of candidates and he told us: “The Republican Party is just a mess, I mean, I don’t think they even have humans running, they are about to throw a cow in the race. The Democratic Party, which I am proud to say, in their debate they talked abut more than the Republican party talked about in their first two debates. So I think there is a definite push from the Democrats for answers, but I think there is a dumbing down of American politics on the Republican side that’s going to come to a ferocious head.”

So who would Mackie vote for? The 37 year old actor told us it would be … wait for it, Kanye West. Check out the video for his full quote.

Our Brand is Crisis hits theaters October 30th.

What ‘Geostorm’s’ Gerard Butler & Abbie Cornish Wish They Could Control Via Satellite

Published

on

One of the many taglines for the new drama, Geostorm, is simply: “Some things weren’t meant to be controlled.”

The film follows a team comprised of world leaders that have one goal in mind: to save the world from natural disasters with the creation of Dutch Boy, a series of satellite grids that control weather and natural disasters around the world.

And while the movie is flooded with action and stellar performances, the film ironically rivals recent natural disasters and crises around the world, and welcomes a bigger conversation. “That’s the genus behind the movie,” the film’s star, Gerard Butler, told HipHollywood. “But nobody knew how acutely it was going to be happening when the movie came out.”

He added, “It’s fun, it’s epic, it’s exciting, but at its core, it’s like, listen, ‘We gotta be careful. We gotta be really careful.”

Co-star Jim Sturgess added. “There is this sort of backbone, a message about climate change, and you kind of hope that audience members leave with that somewhere in the consciousness.”

With the idea, however, that a large unit could control the world’s natural weather patterns, imagine if the same could apply for people’s personal lives.

So when HipHollywood sat down with the cast of the film, we asked: If you could have a grid of satellites over your personal life, what would it control?

For Abbie Cornish, she “wouldn’t mind a satellite that could bring all the local organic seasonal fruits and vegetables to my house ” or “a satellite to drop down fresh flowers.” Jim Sturgess suggested he would love help with “being late for things.”

But it was Butler who suggested “integration.”

He explained, “As opposed to having different satellites and saying, ‘Here’s one for my personal life, here’s one for my relationships, here’s one for my career; I’d rather just have one big satellite, combine them all together, and just shine a whole bunch of positive inspirational light on me as a whole.”

Geostorm hits theaters on Friday, October 20.
