Before his presidency, Donald Trump was involved in the entertainment industry. He has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, after all. As a result, many Hollywood stars have stories about meeting the goofy TV personality who would soon lead the nation.
Many of these stories paint a picture of Trump as someone you would not expect to ascend to the highest office. These are the most awkward stories of stars encountering Trump before he became president. You won’t believe which supermodel turned down his request for a date (page 9).
1. George Clooney got mocked on national television
George Clooney says he met Trump once about 10 years ago. Clooney was out to dinner, and Trump approached him. They talked for a little while; Trump told Clooney he’d recommend a doctor to deal with his neck issue. That was the end of it.
But then Trump went on Larry King Live and made fun of Clooney’s height, telling King that Clooney is “very little.” Clooney had thick skin though, saying Trump’s comment “made me laugh.”
