Actor Christoph Waltz has said he is in a state of desperation over Brexit - wanting to know when the 'clowns' behind the vote will ever take responsibility.
The German-Austrian actor has been vocal about his opposition to the Brexit process, and has again let his feelings be known.
Waltz, who has lived in London, said his attitude toward the UK leaving the EU has moved beyond frustration.
Without naming names, he hit out at the 'clowns' who pushed for Brexit, and called for accountability from Leave leaders.
He told the Press Association: 'I wouldn't even know how to call the level of frustration anymore. Devastation. Desperation. Loss of words, really.

Waltz previously called Farage the 'head rat' of the Brexit vote - who scuttled away from the sinking ship.
He told Sky News: 'Well, I mean, of course the head rat would leave the sinking ship. It's inevitable, you know. They tried to dress it up as a heroic exit — no, it's conceding defeat'.
'It's putting the tail between their legs and as rats do, leave the sinking ship, leave the mess for others to clean up and retreat into some profitable other business,' he continued. 'That shows you how despicable these people are that they can't even stand up for what they caused.'
Waltz stars in James Cameron production Alita, based on a Japanese manga and making use of experimental motion capture in the style of Avatar.
