Mexican actress doesn’t think she needs “to talk sense into him” — it’s people voting for GOP candidate “who are not seeing the madness”
Salma Hayek has her own opinion about Republican candidate Donald Trump running for president, admitting she’s known him for years.
“I’ve known him for a long time,” she told Jimmy Kimmel. “I haven’t seen him since he started this part of his career — entertainment career.”
When Kimmel suggested that Trump would listen to the actress, she said that it is necessary to not only “talk sense” into the real estate mogul, but the people who support him, as well.
“I don’t think he listens to me or to many people,” she added. “You don’t need to talk sense into him. Everybody is entitled to their own madness. You need to talk sense into the people who are not seeing the madness.”
In July, Hayek spoke to the Los Angeles Times about Trump’s controversial immigration remarks, stating that “it’s a very simple tactic for self-promotion. What’s sad is how easily people are manipulated. I’m not insulted because I can not be insulted by stupidity.”
“Everybody’s entitled to have uninformed opinions,” she told the Times. “Everybody’s entitled to be dumb. But I’m not dumb, so I see through the manipulation. We have something to learn from this. That is that the educated people or the people with great human values have to wake up, because they are under the illusion that most of this country is like them and sometimes they don’t even go to vote.”
