"Star Trek" actress Zoe Saldana says Hollywood actors were "bullies" toward President-elect Donald TrumpDonald John TrumpGraham to introduce resolution condemning House impeachment inquiry Support for impeachment inches up in poll Fox News's Bret Baier calls Trump's attacks on media 'a problem' MORE, saying their treatment of the businessman only helped him win the White House.

“We got cocky and became arrogant and we also became bullies,” Saldana said, according to an Agence France-Presse report.

“We were trying to single out a man for all these things he was doing wrong,” she continued, “and that created empathy in a big group of people in America that felt bad for him and that are believing in his promises.”


Saldana has previously told reporters that she supported Democratic presidential nominee Hillary ClintonHillary Diane Rodham ClintonThe Memo: Trump 'lynching' firestorm is sign of things to come Hillary Clinton has said she'd consider 2020 race if she thought she could win: report Nielsen on leaving Trump administration: 'Saying no and refusing to do it myself was not going to be enough' MORE, but has also said she wants to move forward from the election.

“I’m learning from [Trump’s victory] with a lot of humility,” Saldana said. “If we have people continue to be strong and educate ourselves and stand by equal rights and treat everyone with respect, we won’t go back to those times.”

Saldana last year signed a letter alongside America Ferrera and other Latinos in Hollywood saying they would stand up against Trump’s “anti-immigrant fear-mongering.”

She also signed a letter from the “Star Trek” cast that hit Trump as being “an amateur with a contemptuous ignorance of national laws and international realities.”
