Count out 'Easy Rider' star Peter Fonda from any Barack Obama reelection fundraisers.

During a press conference at the Cannes Film Festival, the actor revealed he sent President Obama a letter calling him a traitor over how he handled the BP Gulf oil spill. (What is it with Cannes press conferences this week?)

He also took a swing at BP, calling them "a bunch of Brits. I thought we kicked them out a long time ago. They tried to get back in in 1812, but they didn't make it."

Fonda was at the fest for Tuesday's premiere of the documentary, 'The Big Fix' by American directors Josh and Rebecca Tickell, which he also appeared in and executive produced. The film focuses on families impacted by the oil spill.
