Susan Sarandon, who’s been one of Bernie Sanders’s most vocal supporters, isn’t sure that the senator from Vermont will make it to the Oval Office, and if he fails, she’s not sure who’d be a better second-choice: Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump.

During a live interview on Monday night on All In With Chris Hayes, Sarandon said that Bernie would “probably encourage people” to vote for Clinton if he were unable to clinch the Democratic nomination but that personally, she wasn’t sure what she would do.

“I’m going to see what happens,” Sarandon said.

“Really?” Hayes asked.

“Really,” Sarandon said. “Some people feel that Donald Trump will bring the revolution immediately if he gets in, things will really explode.”

Sarandon drew criticism from many on the Internet for suggesting that Trump might be a better alternative than Clinton, but she isn’t the only celebrity who’s hoping that Sanders becomes the Democratic nominee. Actress and comedian Sarah Silverman released a five-minute YouTube video Monday saying that despite wanting a female Democratic president, Clinton’s decision to accept donations from corporate interests doesn’t line up with her values.

“I’m not against Hillary,” she says in the video. “I’ve just met someone I have more in common with.”
