George Clooney is weighing in on President-elect Donald Trump’s comments about Meryl Streep following her politically charged speech at the Golden Globes.
Trump lashed out at the actress via Twitter on Monday after she criticized him in her passionate Golden Globes speech about empathy Sunday night. In response, Trump called her “one of the most overrated actresses in Hollywood.”
Clooney, a staunch Hillary Clinton supporter and former costar of Streep’s, addressed the controversy at a reception hosted by The Clooney Foundation for Justice on Monday. The event was in support of the Netflix documentary White Helmets about the work done by heroic Syrians to help those hit by bombings in the country.
“I’ve always said that about Meryl,” George Clooney told PEOPLE sarcastically. “She’s maybe the most overrated actress of all-time. She and I worked together on Fantastic Mr. Fox as husband and wife and I will tell you even as a fox, a female fox, she’s overrated,” he said with a smile. “Aren’t you supposed to be running the country?” he asked Trump rhetorically.

Amal and George Clooney will fund the opening of schools for thousands of refugee and Lebanese students, Education Minister Elias Bou Saab announced earlier Tuesday. In a post on his Facebook page, Bou Saab said he met with the Clooneys to discuss the initiative during his visit to New York for the U.N. General Assembly.
“Bou Saab accepted the invitation of Amal and George Clooney, who have launched a project to teach children in Lebanon through private schools that they will build in cooperation with SABIS – a global network of schools – and Lebanon’s Education Ministry,” the post read.
The A-listers told Bou Saab that the first of the several schools will open its doors next year. “The project aims at providing education for 15, 000 Lebanese and refugee children,” continued the minister’s Facebook post.
The Syrian conflict and resulting massive influx of refugees has put pressure on Lebanon’s school system and interrupted many refugee children’s education.
Roughly 250,000 Syrian children in Lebanon are out of school according to research from Human Rights Watch. Local and international organizations have implemented various initiatives aimed at getting more children into school.
