A well deserved round of applause for Timothée, please. 

On Thursday night, Trump became the third president in US history to be impeached. This was on the charge of abuse of power for enlisting a foreign ally to investigate a political rival ahead of the 2020 election.

He is also being impeached on the charge of obstruction of Congress.

Trump, who has called the investigation a “witch hunt,” a “hoax” and a “sham”, is a frequent target for many in Hollywood, and celebrities were quick to respond when his impeachment was confirmed.

Singer John Legend has clashed with the president previously and called for the “evil man” to be removed from office.

He tweeted: “Thank you to the House of Representatives for doing your constitutional duty. Everyone please call your senators and tell them to remove this evil man from office.”

Pop star Lizzo responded to a conservative political commentator who referenced the title of one of the singer’s hit songs by remarking that the “truth hurts”.

Lizzo responded: “The only thing that hurts is this country is divided by hatred fueled (sic) from people like you… why don’t u do better and give ya boy some advice on telling the truth, he’s gonna need it.”

Best known for his work in Call Me By Your Name, Timothée’s latest film, Little Women, has reunited him with Lady Bird co-star Saoirse Ronan.
