Breaking Bad actor Bryan Cranston learned one thing from his character Walter White. He likes people who give it to him straight and don’t put up fronts about what they want.


Cranston appeared on the “Nerdist” podcast and talked about — who else? — Donald Trump.

“I actually like his candor,” Cranston told host Chris Hardwick. “`You’re an idiot. I’m a winner, you’re a loser.’”

Cranston said there’s “something so refreshing about shaking up that world that is all about being handled.”

Despite his praise, the actor won’t be endorsing Trump or his politics any time soon.

“And here comes this loose cannon, who has terrible ideas and would be a horrible president, but there’s something great about his ‘I-don’t-give-a-s–t’ attitude that really kind of keeps others honest. I think it’s a surprise benefit to the country, actually,” Cranston said. “I hope he stays in for a long, long time, and just collapses that whole tent of his.”
