The Harry Potter star was asked for her opinion on Brexit on ABC's News Breakfast show, and she did not mince her words.
She said: 'I'm not allowed to say the words that spring to mind, because it is early in the morning, and people are tender in the morning... but I think it's a load of...'
The host interjects: 'You can say bollocks' to which the actress agreed.
She said: 'Yes it's bollocks!'

She said: 'I don't think it's going to end. I think it's going to go on for years. We are wasting our resources and our time, and our focus, it's absolute nonsense. It's piffle.
'David Cameron - who was our prime minister - he should be boiled in oil. It was just a waste.'
