Christoph Waltz calls Brexit 'really stupid'

Austrian actor Christoph Waltz on Sunday blasted Prime Minister David Cameron for leading Britain towards a referendum in which a majority cast a "really stupid" vote to leave the European Union. He said he was "worried sh**less" by the damage Britain's successful Leave campaign is doing to the rest of Europe.
