Susan Sarandon slammed President Donald Trump as a “horrible person” and said “he’s really dangerous.”

During an interview with Vulture published Monday, the 70-year-old actress said it is beyond time for people to stop blaming her for Hillary Clinton’s loss because she wouldn’t throw her support behind the Democratic presidential nominee and focus on fighting what the president has been doing. (RELATED: Susan Sarandon: Clinton Is More Dangerous Than Trump [VIDEO])

“I’m certainly not in any way defending Trump, let me go on the record to say that, because people seem to want to say that I am,” Sarandon explained. “I think he’s a horrible person, and he’s really dangerous. But the good news about Trump is that he has exposed all the cracks that are in our system, and now the light can get in.” (RELATED: Susan Sarandon: Kardashians ‘Could Buy America’)

“I think those people are just at a loss of really examining what happened,” she added. “And it’s easy to blame me. But I mean, seriously, there’s me and Viggo Mortensen against all the people that supported Hillary.”

“That would mean that we outweighed Meryl Streep, George Clooney, Beyoncé, Jay Z, Katy Perry, Julia Roberts,” she continued. “I mean every single person. Does that make sense to you? You know what I’m saying? I don’t think it’s rational, it’s not based in anything rational. It’s just a way to not deal with reality.”

“And honestly, I think the point is we can’t afford to be divisive at this point and we have to move on,” Sarandon said. “I have a lot of things I could complain about in the primaries, but right now we can’t be in third grade and playing a blame game. We have to be dealing with very, very serious things that are going on, and we play into Trump’s hands by wallowing in this blaming thing instead of actually unifying and doing something about it.”
