Many Hollywood stars met Donald Trump during his time in the entertainment industry. And they often walked away with bizarre stories of the future world leader. These are the most awkward celeb encounters with Trump, who called one famous actor “very little” on national TV (see page 9).
1. Christie Brinkley
- The supermodel called Trump “smarmy” after getting to know him.
In early 2018, Christie Brinkley revealed POTUS invited her on his private jet because they were both traveling to Aspen, Colorado. At the time she was dating Billy Joel and Trump was married to his first wife, Ivana. The supermodel declined, but Trump doubled down, telling Brinkley to cancel her flight and travel with him. The supermodel explained, “I knew he was married, and there he was asking me to go on his plane. He was kind of flirty about it. He was out chasing skirts.”
Brinkley added that she dined with him before, too. “I’ve always found him smarmy, as in, ‘’Watch out, part the waves, the rich people are coming.'”
