Martin Sheen is not a fan of Donald Trump and called him “scary” when asked to describe him.

In an interview with the Hollywood Reporter, the 76-year-old actor blasted the Republican presidential nominee with words like “empty-headed” and “moron” while talking about who he is and is not supporting in this years election. (RELATED: Martin Sheen Chokes Up While Talking About Sons HIV Diagnosis)

“Oh, Don Trump,” Sheen said. “He makes me laugh, in that nobody seems to get it yet.”

The interviewer pressed the actor on what he meant by “get it.”

“That he’s an empty-headed moron,” he said. “That he has absolutely nothing to offer us. That he’s done his bidding and he has to be responsible for the damage he’s already done.”

“There’s nothing private about this guy,” he added. “Don Trump has been around for a very long time. He’s a very self-centered promoter. I think that says it.”

Sheen then explained why he was supporting Hillary Clinton and said he didn’t blame her for what happened in Benghazi.

“She has some common sense,” he said. “I’m not saying she’s mistake-free. Who is?”

“I mean, she’s a human being,” he added. “She’s been in public life for 30 years. She’s made a few mistakes.”

“Is anybody talking about George Bush and the 30,000 emails he destroyed about the weapons of mass destruction in Iraq and all of that nonsense, and how Great Britain came in, and all the other allies knowing full well that it was bogus,” he continued. “So, please, if you want to talk about how much her mistakes have cost us, none in human lives — and please don’t mention Benghazi. That’s a lot of crap.”

“She was not controlling that situation,” he said. “It was a military situation. And that’s run by the Pentagon or the CIA or both. She’s under orders.”

“I blame terrorism,” he added. “Plain and simple. Terrorism.”
