Famed Hollywood actor George Clooney slammed North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un, in an interview published by Deadline on Thursday.

Responding to Sony's decision to pull the plug on the December 25th theatrical release of "The Interview" amid threats from hackers, Clooney said it's imperative the leader of the communist country does not come out of the situation victorious.

"We cannot be told we can’t see something by Kim Jong-un, of all f*cking people," he told Deadline.

The Hollywood actor, known for freely expressing his politics, encouraged Sony Pictures to publish the film on another platform.

"Stick it online," Clooney told the publication. "Do whatever you can to get this movie out. Not because everybody has to see the movie, but because I’m not going to be told we can’t see the movie. That's the most important part."

Clooney said following the Sony hack, he circulated a petition of support to a "large number of people" in Hollywood, but said every person approached refused to sign.

"As we watched one group be completely vilified, nobody stood up," Clooney told Deadline. "Nobody took that stand."
