Drastic times call for drastic measures.
Hollywood actress Sigourney Weaver revealed Wednesday how she took extreme steps to escape daily upsetting news updates regarding President Donald Trump’s administration.
The “Alien” star — and vocal Trump critic — told “Late Show” host Stephen Colbert how she recently went off grid with her husband for an entire month.
She said they spent their “health break” from the news in Hawaii “which actually has made me feel a lot better.”
“I know it’s selfish and I’m in denial,” said Weaver, in reference to the current U.S. political climate, before describing her time away as “incredible.”
“I was almost afraid to come back,” she added.
