Hollywood actors were "bullies" toward President-elect Donald Trump — and that treatment helped the Republican win the November election, "Star Trek" actress Zoe Saldana said in an interview.

"We got cocky and became arrogant and we also became bullies," Saldana, 38, whose latest movie is "Live by Night" with Ben Affleck, told Agence France-Presse on Friday.

"We were trying to single out a man for all these things he was doing wrong," she added, "and that created empathy in a big group of people in America that felt bad for him and that are believing in his promises."

Saldana, who supported Democrat Hillary Clinton, said that the time had come to move forward from the election.

"I’m learning from [Trump’s victory] with a lot of humility," she said. "If we have people continue to be strong and educate ourselves and stand by equal rights and treat everyone with respect, we won’t go back to those times."

Actress Nicole Kidman told the BBC this week that Americans needed to get behind Trump, who takes the oath of office next Friday.

"I just say he's now elected and we as a country need to support whoever's the president because that's what the country's based on," Kidman said on Tuesday. ""However that happened, he's there, and let's go."

But at the Golden Globe Awards ceremony on Sunday, multiple Oscar-winner Meryl Streep ripped Trump for vilifying Hollywood and other groups.

"You and all of us in this room belong to the most vilified segments of America right now: Hollywood, foreigners and the press," she said.

Trump hit back on Twitter, calling Streep "one of the most over-rated actresses in Hollywood" and a "Hillary flunky."
