During Sunday night’s presidential debate, Donald Trump called his controversial remarks about groping and fondling women “locker room” chatter. The inexusable comments, however, left a bitter taste in the mouths of millions of people, including some of Hollywood’s elite.

Over the weekend, a video went viral of Robert De Niro blasting the Republican Presidential Nominee for being a “blatantly stupid … punk” who “doesn’t know what he’s talking about, doesn’t do his homework, doesn’t care, thinks he’s gaming society, doesn’t pay his taxes. He’s an idiot. Colin Powell said it best: He’s a national disaster. He’s an embarrassment to this country. It makes me so angry that this country has gotten to this point that this fool, this bozo, has wound up where he has.”

Whether being called an “idiot” or a “bozo,” De Niro’s remarks aren’t exactly a far departure from what other stars think of Trump.

During Saturday night’s Carousel of Hope Ball in Beverly Hills, HipHollywood caught up with Alan Thicke, who suggested “we’ve all wondered every week whether the next thing out of Donald’s mouth would end his candidacy and it never has. So I think we are at an edge where his supporters are all about his attitude.”

Thicke added, “We will have to wait and see how it plays out.”

Dancing with the Stars pro dancer Allison Holker also spoke out, telling us “as a woman, as a working woman, as a woman that is a mother, a woman that has two kids, a woman that has a husband  … I was very offended by Donald Trump’s comments. I think they were very offensive to women as a whole and I think it shows that we can’t have some of that in leadership.”

Meanwhile, although unable to vote, 16-year-old black-ish star Yara Shahidi revealed to us that this is “a difficult election happening” and that “I know who I would be voting for if I were 18.”

The Carousel Ball has been a Hollywood favorite for 30 years and is an event dedicated to raising awareness and ultimately, finding a cure for diabetes. This year, the honorees were Sidney Poitier, Jane Fonda and David Foster — Jamie Fox and Idina Menzel provided entertainment for the night.

‘Annihilation’s’ Leading Ladies Use Intense Military Training As Bonding Experience

Published

on

Annihilation is one hell of a visually stunning sci-fi film with five female leads on an expedition to uncover the mysterious phenomenon that is expanding across the American coastline.

For Natalie Portman, Tessa Thompson and Gina Rodriguez, the film, which also lends a voice to what is being called the year of the woman, dressing in head to toe military gear and going through tactical training was a bonding experience.

“”t was really fun. It’s weird to say that. But to have all these women in military training together, where we had to do these exercises … it was a great bonding experience with each other.” Portman told us.

And although the women had the opportunity to use real guns, firearms is not something the ladies of Hollywood advocate. “I’m anti gun to be honest,” Rodriguez said. “I say no guns. There’s no reason for people to have guns especially when you have these,” she said while holding up her firsts.

This past week Gina has been very vocal via social media about gun legislation and the idea behind policy and change following the tragic high school massacre an Parkland, Florida.
Annihilation, also starring Oscar Isaac, hits theaters on February 23.
