Oscar-Winner Clubs Trump Over Golf Course

10/13/2009 7:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Tilda Swinton's life is about to become hell -- the Academy Award winner is officially picking a fight with Donald Trump ... and we all know how that usually turns out.

Tilda Swinton Donald Trump

Swinton just signed an anti-Trump petition, accusing His Hairness of bullying residents in Scotland in order to make way for a brand new state-of-the-art golf course developed by the Trump Organization.

Trump got permission to build on the land back in 2008, but critics -- like British-born Tilda -- are trying to crush Donald's plan, claiming some local residents could be evicted to make way for the links. Trump has also taken heat from people saying his plans are "environmentally unfriendly."

Trump hasn't repsonded personally -- yet -- but his Scottish rep claims Tilda is siding with "extremists."

Let the battle begin...

Not a big Trump fan and don't believe the world needs another golf course but I can't bring myself to side with Swinton, she signed the petition supporting Polanski. If she doesn't see anything wrong with a man in is 40's drugging and raping a 13 year old I'm certain I don't trust her views on almost everything in life. In the end all you have is your credibility and she blew hers.

hmmm..    

Yes, Mr. Trump doesn't give a rat's ass about the environment. His golf course in Palos Verdes sprays tons of pesticides and artificial fertilizers, which are very detrimental to the ocean, killing plankton and causing red tides. He basically ruined the land, land which was designated for public use, which he claims is still for public use. The problem is that only the public who can afford the ridiculously high fees for a day of golfing, between 250 to 500 dollars a day can use it! It used to be a beautiful area of fields and rolling hills, a wildlife corridor and natural preserve. He's a megalomaniac who is in it only for the money.

Good luck with that, Tilda. Trump could give a crap about you or the land he builds on. The only thing he cares about is money and having his name plastered all over the world. I don't see the point in trying to stop him. The country already gave him permission to build. You can fight him "til da" day you die, but it's a waste of time.

I agree, 100% with AZFire, Tilda Swinton has zero credibility after signing the pedophile petition.

So, Tilda Swinton thinks 13 yr old little girls ought to be butt f_cked by 42 yr old men against their will, but Scotland can't have a golf course? She's sleazy and a waste of humanity. her and Whoopi "it wasn't rape-rape" Goldberg make me sick to my stomach! Maybe Donald can somehow bury these two six feet under during construction.

CRAZY IS AS CRAZY DOES    

I GUESS ALL YOU TRUMP FANS THINK HE IS THE MORAL COMPASS OF WHAT ONE SHOULD BEHAVE LIKE. THE ACTRESS MAY HAVE SIGNED A PETETION IN FAVOR OF POLANSKI, BUT IT SHOULD NOT DEMISH THE FACT THAT MOM AND POP MIGHT BE THE BIGGEST LOSERS. YOU WOULD CUTE OFF YOUR NOSE DESPITE YOUR FACE SMALL MINDED PERSON!

mr trump got himself in trouble here in NY recently when libyan kadafi was to stay on his estate/golf course in westchester county NY while speaking at the UN conference this last month.he had a tent all set up for him until local residents found out what was going on.we here in NY are calling for a boycott of any trump corp business for supporting a terrorist that killed hundreds in the bombing of lockerbie scotlands pan am.that also makes you wonder why scotland was so fast to release the dying sick bomber who was tried and convicted maybe a lil side action going on with him working all the angles.

Hi all,
I live around 7 miles from the proposed site. I havent signed any petition...my opinion on signing is whats the point?!!! To be honest building a golf course and sports complex with housing is just what this area needs.It will bring Jobs to this area and will boost Aberdeenshires economy. BUT I do not agree with Trump in the way he is treating decent Human beings. These people who have lived in their homes at the site for a long time do not want to move!!! Why does trump have the right to kick them out??? Its just wrong!

Here is his planning application link from Aberdeenshire Council -
