Michael Keaton On Trump: 'We've Got To Give Him A Chance'

| by Michael Howard

Movie star Michael Keaton reportedly disapproves of Hollywood's anti-President Donald Trump sentiment, saying that his fellow actors should "give [Trump] a chance" to govern the country.

The "Spotlight" star was spotted at the Tower Bar in West Hollywood on the night of Jan. 21, according to Page Six.

At some point during the night Keaton got up and went over to speak with Al Pacino and John Travolta, who were having dinner with the establishment's owner, Jeff Klein.

Page Six reports that during their conversation, Keaton expressed disagreement with Hollywood's well-known opposition to Trump's presidency.

This young teenage singer was shocked when Keith Urban invited her on stage at his concert. A few moments later, he made her wildest dreams come true.

"Enough with the Hollywood BS," Keaton reportedly said. "I didn't vote for him, but we've got to just give him a chance at this point."

Keaton's comments echo those recently made by actress Nicole Kidman, who told the BBC on Jan. 10 that she thinks Americans have a duty to support the president.

"I just say, [Trump is] now elected, and we as a country need to support whoever's the president because that's what the country's based on," Kidman said, according to KIRO.

Kidman faced backlash for her comments, and later clarified them to Access Hollywood.

This young teenage singer was shocked when Keith Urban invited her on stage at his concert. A few moments later, he made her wildest dreams come true:

"I was trying to stress that I believe in democracy and the American Constitution. It's that simple," she said. "I'm just, I'm out of it now. That's what I said. It's that simple."

One of Hollywood's most prominent anti-Trump voices has been Meryl Streep, who spoke out against the president during a speech at the Golden Globe Awards on Jan. 8.

"Disrespect invites disrespect," Streep said, according to NBC News. "Violence incites violence. When the powerful use their position to bully others, we all lose. We need the principled press to hold power to account, to call him on the carpet for every outrage."

The response from Trump was swift and came via Twitter.

"Meryl Streep, one of the most over-rated actresses in Hollywood, doesn't know me but attacked [me] last night at the Golden Globes," he wrote. "She is a Hillary flunky who lost big."
