Celebrities are not keeping quiet this election cycle.

Many have announced their endorsements of candidates, both Democrats and Republicans.

And some have simply said they don't like GOP front-runner Donald Trump.

Scroll down to see which celebrities have denounced The Donald.

Actress Lena Dunham has campaigned in support of Hillary Clinton, and speaking at the Democratic National Convention on July 26, 2016, she called out Trump for past remarks about women.

"Donald and his party think I should be punished for exercising my constitutional rights, and his rhetoric about women takes us back to a time when we were meant to be beautiful and silent," she said.

Actor Mark Ruffalo, producer Shonda Rhimes, actor Bryan Cranston and many more artists signed a petition titled "Artists united against hate," that says they are committed "to defeat the presumptive Republican nominee for president, Donald Trump."

"Trump wants to take our country back to a time when fear excused violence, when greed fueled discrimination, and when the state wrote prejudice against marginalized communities into law,' the petition says.

Actress America Ferrera wrote an open letter to Donald Trump, published on Huffington Post, thanking him for his "hateful rhetoric" about Mexican immigrants because it will energize Latino voters to vote for other candidates.

"Remarks like yours will serve brilliantly to energize Latino voters and increase turnout on election day against you and any other candidate who runs on a platform of hateful rhetoric," she wrote.

"You, Mr. Trump, are living in an outdated fantasy of a bigoted America," she continued.

In her DNC speech on July 26, 2016, she said, "Donald's not making America great again, he's making America hate again. The vast majority of us cannot afford to see his vision of America come to be."

Renowned scientist Stephen Hawking said in an interview on May 31, 2016, that he can't understand Trump's political rise. "He is a demagogue, who seems to appeal to the lowest common denominator," he told "Good Morning Britain."

Author Stephen King joined over 400 writers in signing a petition that speaks out against Trump. The petition, released on May 24, lists a number of reasons why the group of writers "oppose, unequivocally, the candidacy of Donald J. Trump."

"The rise of a political candidate who deliberately appeals to the basest and most violent elements in society, who encourages aggression among his followers, shouts down opponents, intimidates dissenters, and denigrates women and minorities, demands, from each of us, an immediate and forceful response," the petition reads.

The petition was written by writers Andrew Altschul and Mark Slouka. Cheryl Strayed and Amy Tan are among the others who signed. The group also started a Twitter account, @WritersOnTrump, and the hashtag #WritersOnTrump.

In an interview with "The Young Turks" in January, actress Susan Sarandon compared Trump to a "drunk uncle at a wedding."

She said she "can't even address him seriously," but what concerns her is that "he's made hatred and racism normal." She said she "can't believe for a second that America would actually make Donald Trump the president," and that many Republicans must be embarrassed by him.

Singer-songwriter John Legend called Trump "racist" on Twitter after Trump's son, Donald Trump Jr. tweeted about the clashes between Trump supporters and protesters in Chicago.

"Ha 5 students when asked why they were protesting couldn't even answer. The participation medal/micro aggression generation is pretty sad!," Trump Jr. tweeted.

".@DonaldJTrumpJr I think they were protesting your racist father. This isn't complicated," Legend wrote.

After the exchange received media attention, Legend tweeted, "This is not controversial. This is not news. The sky is blue."

Appearing on the Australian "Today" show on March 14, actor Jack Black said he would choose anyone for president over Trump, even hip-hop artist Kanye West.

"Listen, I'll take Kanye over Trump, anyone but Trump," he said. When asked what he thought of the prospects of Trump becoming president, Black said, "It's a scary proposition but I don't think that's really in the cards."

"At the end of the day, you gotta believe that people are gonna vote for someone who's more levelheaded, and more responsible, maybe a little more intelligent," he said. "This guy's just a hot head and he's a billionaire, and how can you trust that he's not just going to be looking out for No. 1, as he always has?"
