Brooke Shields was once propositioned by President Donald Trump, who thought they would make a great couple – despite a 19-year age difference.
The actress opened up about her awkward chat with Trump during an appearance on Watch What Happens Live on Tuesday night (03Oct17), revealing he tried to chat her up shortly after splitting from his second wife, Marla Maples, in 1999.
“I was on location doing a movie and he called me right after he had gotten a divorce,” the 52-year-old Blue Lagoon star told TV host Andy Cohen.
“He said, ‘I really think we should date because you’re America’s sweetheart and I’m America’s richest man and the people would love it!'”
Brooke explained she already had a boyfriend – and politely declined Trump’s offer.
She isn’t the only actress Trump has attempted to woo – Emma Thompson, Candice Bergen, and Salma Hayek have also claimed they were once courted by the property tycoon-turned-politician.
Bergen recently revealed she cut short a college date with Trump because he was “a douche”.
The Murphy Brown star met the future president while she was a student at the University of Pennsylvania, and agreed to join him for dinner – but the then-18-year-old was far from impressed with Trump and didn’t stay out for long.
Candice recalled the disastrous date during an appearance on Watch What Happens Live last month (Sep17), when she remarked upon Trump’s wardrobe as he arrived to pick her up.
“He was wearing a three-piece burgundy suit and burgundy patent leather loafers in a burgundy limousine,” she remembered. “I was home very early. There was no physical contact whatsoever. He was a good-looking guy, and a douche.”
