Ethan Hawke On Donald Trump's Presidency: 'The Artistic Community Thrives When Fascists Are in Charge'

Ethan Hawke has some thoughts about President-elect Donald Trump!

“In general, the artistic community thrives when fascists are in charge. So the only upside is that people in the arts now are motivated,” the 46-year-old actor recently told THR.

“Look the upset around the Nixon administration and the Vietnam War and what happened with music,” Ethan added. “And the films of the 1960s and ’70s are still seen as a high-water mark. People who cherish equality and fairness, who celebrate the diversity and the human spirit in all people, are feeling punched in the gut.”

Last night (November 27), Ethan got support from his Reality Bites co-star Winona Ryder while attending a special screening of his film Born to be Blue alongside director Robert Budreau at The Roxy Hotel in New York City.

Also in attendance to show their support for the upcoming film was Michael Stuhlbarg, Celia Weston and Paul Haggis.
