Actor Emma Thompson has revealed that she was once asked out on a date by the current President of the United States, Donald Trump, and she told him to ‘f**k off.”
Speaking on The Graham Norton Show, Thompson said: “He asked me out once. I could have changed the course of history! I was in my trailer and the phone rang - no one had every rung it nor had I ever used it. I had assumed it didn’t work. It was Donald Trump on the other end - I thought someone was having a laugh so told him to f**k off.”
To which, Trump replied, “Come and stay in one of my apartments and maybe we could have dinner.” I didn’t know what to say. I was absolutely astounded because how did he get the number that even I didn’t have. I said I would get back to him but I never did.”
The star wishes she had taken his offer all those years ago because maybe she would have been able to pick his brains and prevent him from winning the US’ presidential election in 2016.
“In so many ways I wish I had because I could have ruffled his hair and we would then all have known the truth! And maybe he wouldn’t have been president,” she said.
