The Mexican actor was presenting awards with actress Hailee Steinfeld when he took a moment to get real about a very important topic — the U.S. Mexico border wall.

"Flesh and blood actors are migrant workers," he said. "We travel all over the world, we build families, we construct stories, we build a life that cannot be divided."

He continued: "As a Mexican, as a Latin American, as a migrant worker, as a human being I am against any wall that wants to separate us."
