Los Angeles: Oscar-winning actor Robert De Niro has hit out at the US presidential candidate Donald Trump, saying he wants to punch the politician in his face.
The 73-year-old star's remarks feature in a video produced by Anonymous Content, which has been making a series of short interviews for an initiative called #VoteYourFuture, reported Variety.
"I'd like to punch him (Trump) in the face," he said in the clip.
In the video, De Niro can also be heard calling Trump a "blatantly stupid" and "punk" artist.
De Niro's message to Trump didn't make the final cut of a celebrity Get Out The Vote advertisement, but The Kelly File show has obtained the footage.
De Niro said Trump is "so blatantly stupid", and called him almost every name including a "punk", a "pig", a "con", and an "embarrassment to this country", reports foxnews.com.
"He talks how he'd like to punch people in the face?" De Niro said. "Well, I'd like to punch him in the face."
