“Breaking Bad” star Bryan Cranston, who was an outspoken critic of President Donald Trump during the 2016 presidential election, is now hoping Trump will succeed as Commander in Chief.
“President Trump is not the person who I wanted to be in that office, and I’ve been very open about that,” Cranston said in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter on Monday. “That being said, he is the president.”
“If he fails, the country is in jeopardy. It would be egotistical for anyone to say, ‘I hope he fails,’” Cranston continued. “To that person I would say, ‘F— you. Why would you want that? So you can be right?’”

The actor added that he will support anyone with a “good idea.”
“If you’ve got a good idea that helps the country, oh man, I’m gonna support you,” Cranston said. “I don’t care if you’re a Republican and I’m a Democrat or whatever, I don’t care. A good idea’s a good idea. Let’s do that.”
“We’ve got to get away from this idea that our country is political football, and someone with a different opinion is the enemy. Assume they love this country as much as you do, and there’s always room for improvement. How can we make it better?” he stated.
Cranston, who is currently promoting Richard Linklater’s patriotic film “Last Flag Flying,” isn’t the only Hollywood star to shift stances on the current president, hoping he will succeed for the sake of the country.
“This is the United States of America. We’ll go on,” Academy Award winner Tom Hanks told The Hollywood Reporter. “There’s great like-minded people out there who are Americans first and Republicans or Democrats second.”
Hanks, who supported Hillary Clinton during the 2016 election, added, “I hope the president-elect does such a great job that I vote for his reelection in four years.”
Speaking at an event in Washington, D.C., last November, he promised that despite political division, the country would be fine.
“We are going to be all right,” Hanks assured his audience. “America has been in worse places than we are at right now. In my own lifetime, our streets were in chaos, our generations were fighting each other tooth and nail.”
He continued, “Every dinner table ended up being as close to a fistfight as human families are allowed. We have been in a place where we have looked at our leaders and wondered, ‘What the hell they were thinking of?’”
CNN reported that Hanks pointed to the Constitution as a reason for people to have faith in America’s future at the National Archives last month, where he was being honored with the “Records of Achievement Award.”
“People are upset about what’s going on today. They’re furious, they’re frustrated, they’re worked up,” Hanks said. “If you’re concerned about what’s going on today, read history and figure out what to do because it’s all right there.”
“As we continually move towards a more perfect union, that magnificent document (the US Constitution) out there, that might be the only self-correcting, open-ended document anywhere on the planet Earth (that) keeps us going, that keeps saying that we’re going to learn how to do that one thing we’ve already sort of done, we’re going to become better and better and better,” he said.
