“I have seen my country’s past, and this is what it looks like.
I’ve seen my people’s history.
And what I have seen is the worst.”
The 30-year-old actress who played “the one and only” in the Oscar-winning drama “12 Years a Slave” said she wants “to leave my country and come back home.”
She said the United States is in a “state of disaster” and her country needs a savior.
“The United States has a lot of things wrong with it,” she said during an appearance on “Fox & Friends.”
“It’s really a sad state of affairs.
It’s a really sad country.
I’m a proud American, and I am looking forward to returning home.”
Milano also said the country’s leaders are “doing the best they can” and she thinks the U.S. should “come out of this crisis.”
“I’m just so tired of being on the outside looking in,” she told the network.
She also said she was worried about “the next generation” because “they’re going to be the ones to do this.”
Her father, Oscar Milano Jr., who is also from Argentina, is “not happy” with her portrayal of slave owner Steve McQueen, who also died at the hands of the American government.
On the other hand, Milano, who is Jewish, said she would continue to “go to work” because she has a “special bond” with the people of Argentina.
Milanoes father, meanwhile, says his daughter’s portrayal of McQueen “will remain as iconic as ever.”
