The actor gave a speech supporting Donald Trump on the first day of the Republican National Convention in Cleveland 2 weeks ago. Ever since then he says Hollywood has had it out for him.

In a recent interview with Variety, the 44-year-old Italian born star said: “I’ve had fantastic directors who have said officially to my agents and managers they will never hire me again. That's unfair. It's just like communism."

He added: "I think this country allows you freedom of speech. Anybody should be allowed to say whatever they want. When you’re in my business, you can’t talk about [conservative] politics. You just can’t. You’re attacked viciously in a way that I’ve never been attacked before."
