‘IT’S A DISGRACE’: Antonio Sabato Jr. says his support for Trump cost him his career

Antonio Sabato Jr.’s support for U.S. President Donald Trump cost him his career in Hollywood.

The former General Hospital soap star claimed he said goodbye to his acting career the moment he voiced his support for Trump when he ran for the Presidency in 2016 during an new interview with Variety.

“It’s been terrible,” the 48-year-old, who now works in construction in Florida, said. “It’s mind-blowing. It’s a disgrace. It’s tough, because if you’re in that environment in Hollywood and you have something to say that they don’t like, they’re going to let you know.”

The star added he was, “talking to a distribution company about producing a film that was set to go, and they told me to my face, ‘We will never distribute a movie with you in it because of your affiliation with the president.’

“The reality is the power that makes movies happen in Hollywood–casting directors, producers, executive producers, directors–they’re all liberal. They hate anyone or anything who supports this president.”

When The Bold and the Beautiful star tried to get back with his former representatives, they apparently told him: “‘No, we’re not going to represent you.’

“Not a reason. Just no, plain and simple. They wouldn’t touch me because it would be too tough to get me a job,” he explained.

However, the actor has had some success, and is set to return to screens in the upcoming Christian movie One Nation Under God, alongside Isaak Presley, Kevin Sorbo, Herschel Walker, and Casper Van Dien, when it hits theatres over the summer.
