Zoe Saldana said Trump won because Hollywood was bullies’

Cast member Zoe Saldana poses at the premiere of “Live by Night” in Hollywood, California, USA, January 9, 2017.


Actress Zoe Saldana thinks that the Hollywood stars’ “arrogant” the roads are partly the fault of President-elect, Donald Trump winning the election.

The “Star Trek” actress told AFP that they learn from Trump’s victory “with a lot of humility.”

“We have cocky and arrogant, and we were also bullies,” she said.

Saldana explained that the more Hollywood stars demonized Trump, the more voters started to believe in him.


“We tried to be a guy for all these things that he was doing wrong…and that empathy in a large group of people in America who felt bad for him and believe in his promises.”

The 38-year-old suggested that if “people stay strong and be ourselves and stand up for equal rights and treat everyone with respect” the country will be OK.


Fellow Hollywood star Mark Wahlberg echoed Saldana’s thoughts after the elections.

“Much of Hollywood is living in a bubble,” Wahlberg said. “It just goes to show you that people don’t listen to that anyway. They can buy your CD or watch your movie, but you don’t have food on their table. You don’t pay their bills.”
