WASHINGTON (Circa) — British actress Claire Foy opened up about her thoughts on American politics, calling Donald Trump "the giant penis of America" in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter.
The publication caught up with Foy in Washington, D.C. for a profile. Upon seeing the "phallic Washington Monument across the Mall," they report that Foy said "D.C. is where the giant penis of America lives... in more ways than one."
The interview delved into Foy's career with her time on the Netflix series "The Crown" as well as her role in "First Man" alongside Ryan Gosling. The background of Washington, D.C. as the setting exposed Foy's support for the #MeToo movement when confronting a protester and her distaste for President Trump.
Claire Foy on those who are anti-#MeToo: "It just breaks my heart, how other human beings just care so little about people ... I have a real problem with people not understanding the effect that they have on other people" https://t.co/8Reudfp4xh pic.twitter.com/i3u5jkNDWJ— Hollywood Reporter (@THR) October 17, 2018
While some on social media are critical of Foy voicing her political opinion as an actress, some are supportive of both her politics and her work in entertainment.
Oh good, another Hollywood celebrity giving us her opinions. Celebrity’s should remember their place in society, they are actors, it does not give them a right to voice their agenda or disrespect people. Claire Foy has no class or manners.— Kelly Goldberger (@kelgoldberg61) October 19, 2018
