Actress Susan Sarandon seems to have no regrets over her outspoken dislike of Hillary Clinton, saying in a new interview that "we would be at war" if Ms Clinton was US President. 

"I did think she was very, very dangerous," Sarandon told The Guardian. "We would still be fracking, we would be at war [if she was president]... it wouldn't be much smoother."

The Thelma & Louise star, who publicly supported of US Senator Bernie Sanders during last year's US election, apparently isn't a huge fan of ex-US President Barack Obama either. 

"Look what happened under Obama that we didn't notice," she said, when asked about the Trump administration's approach to immigration policy. 

"[Ms Clinton] would've done it the way Obama did it, which was sneakily. He deported more people than have been deported now. 

"How he got the Nobel Peace Prize, I don't know. I think it was very important to have a black family in the White House and I think some of the stuff he did was good. 

"He tried really hard about healthcare, but he didn't go all the way because of big pharma." 

In the interview, Sarandon also described some of the heat and threats she's received on social media, sice the election.

"I got from Hillary people, 'I hope your crotch is grabbed,' 'I hope you're raped,'" she said, "misogynistic attacks."
