Actor Burt Reynolds says President-elect Trump’s arrogance is placing the security of the United States in jeopardy.

The 80-year-old actor said in an article published Saturday that he’s concerned that Trump could throw the U.S. into a war situation “very quickly.”

“There’s a part of him that is so much fun and so sweet, but he’s doing what I used to do — having a good time being arrogant. And he has so many hangers-on,” he said.

Reynolds also said he had been worried that Trump might ask him to take part in his presidential campaign.

“I was terrified that my friend Donald Trump would ask me to be part of his presidential campaign,” the “Smokey and the Bandit” star told the Guardian. “I’d have said no,” he added.

Reynolds made headlines in March 2016 when he compared Trump to “a sheriff that’s quick on the draw.”

At the time the actor said, “I don’t think there’s any question that Donald is going to be nominated,” but refused to say if he would vote for the Republican candidate.

“You know, our current president has kind of messed things up the last four years. But I don’t know who I would vote for,” he told the Daily Beast.
