Patrick Stewart says he’s applying for U.S. citizenship in order to fight and oppose President Donald Trump.

The British actor said on Thursday’s episode of “The View” that he and his wife went to Washington last month to visit friends and to ask them what they could do about Trump. He said the only answer was to “fight” and “oppose” Trump, but he can’t do that because he’s not a citizen.

The 76-year-old Stewart stars in “X-Men” and “Star Trek.” He reprises his role as X-Men founder Professor X in the Wolverine tale, “Logan,” which opens Friday.

Arnold Schwarzenegger opens up about affair, Trump feud

Arnold Schwarzenegger says he doesn’t dwell on the affair that cost him his marriage to Maria Shriver and is focused on having a great relationship with his kids.

Schwarzenegger and Shriver separated in 2011 after she discovered he had fathered a child with the family maid in 1997.

The actor and former California governor tells Men’s Journal he would have done things differently, but beating himself up it isn’t going to change anything.

Schwarzenegger also opened up about his running feud with fellow Republican President Donald Trump, whom Schwarzenegger succeeded as host of “The Apprentice.” Schwarzenegger refused to support Trump during the campaign, and Trump has since lashed out at Schwarzenegger over “Apprentice” ratings.

Of Trump, Schwarzenegger says he was tempted to “smash his face into the table,” but instead settled on a Twitter response.

Michael Jackson’s daughter joins top modeling agency

Paris Jackson has joined one of the world’s top modeling agencies.

The 18-year-old daughter of Michael Jackson will model for IMG. The company and Jackson made the announcement on social media Thursday.

Jackson says on Instagram she feels “very lucky and blessed.”

Jackson joins a roster that also includes Gisele Bundchen, Kate Moss and supermodel sisters Bella and Gigi Hadid. She’s not the first daughter of a famous singer to join the agency, which also represents Mick Jagger’s daughter, Georgia May Jagger.

It’s shaping up to be a busy year for Jackson. Fox announced in January that she would make her acting debut on the drama series “Star.”

Widow: Mural of Rodney Dangerfield is ‘less-than-flattering’

Rodney Dangerfield made a career out of getting “no respect.” His widow contends he’s not getting much in death, either.

NY1 television reports that Joan Dangerfield doesn’t think a mural in his old New York City neighborhood does him justice.

Artist Francesca Robicci painted the mural last year in Queens, working from a photo provided by Dangerfield.

Dangerfield also donated $1,000 toward the project, which was commissioned by a community group.

A letter from her lawyer calls the image “less-than-flattering” and says Rodney Dangerfield “deserves nothing but the highest respect.”

The artist says she worked for free and is heartbroken but is willing to return to New York City from Italy to do some cosmetic work.

Residents were divided on the comedic controversy.

“I think you could have softened it,” Gillian Archer said. “Nobody likes a double chin.”
