Actress Susan Sarandon says she has no regrets over her refusal to endorse Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election, describing her as “very, very dangerous.”
“I did think she was very, very dangerous,” Sarandon said in an interview with The Guardian. “We would still be fracking, we would be at war [if she was president]. It wouldn’t be much smoother.”
The Academy Award-winning actress angered political figures on the left when she refused to endorse Clinton in last year’s president election despite her left-wing beliefs. Sarandon, instead, threw her support behind Green Party candidate Jill Stein, citing Clinton’s “record of corruption” as her reason for breaking from most liberal voters.
“I didn’t advocate people voting for anything,” Sarandon said. “I said get your information, I’m going to vote for change, because I was hoping that Stein was going to get whatever percentage she needed – but I knew she wasn’t going to make the difference in the election.”
