Donald Trump Once Asked Emma Thompson Out And It Sounds SO Cringey

Imagine things had panned out!

Emma Thompson had the, er, opportunity to date Donald Trump back in the day, but she said no. We wonder why… * cough *

Speaking on a Swedish talk show, SVT Play, the British actress explained how she’d been in her movie trailer on the set of Primary Colours with John Travolta in 1998, when her phone rang.


The conversation went as follows:

“Hi, it’s Donald Trump here.”

“Really? Can I help you?”

“I wonder if I could offer you some accommodation in one of my Trump Towers, they’re really comfortable. I think we would get on very well, maybe we can have dinner some time.”

Emma said that she “didn’t know what to do” with herself, and told the billionaire, “Erm, I’ll get back to you.” Though she never did. Imagine if they’d hit it off!

This happened shortly after Emma’s divorce from Kenneth Branagh had been finalised, so she was a single pringle ready to mingle, but chose not to. A wise decision, we reckon!
