Actress Emma Thompson has revealed that she once turned down a date with Donald Trump.
The Love Actually star has admitted that the now US President once asked to take her out only for her to refuse his advances.
Speaking on a Scandinavian chat show, Emma says how she was contacted by the then business mogul who sought her out after becoming a fan of her work.
She says how it was like a ‘moose entered her trailer’ when she took the phone call from Donald who reportedly told her: “I think we would get on very well. Maybe we could have dinner sometime.”
He apparently went on to offer her ‘really comfortable’ accommodation in Trump Tower so that she could make the date.
However, Emma reckons she made her excuses and politely turned down the offer.
The national treasure has also opened up about her absence from the Love Actually 2 filming, saying that it just would have been ‘too sad’ to do anything without Alan Rickman who played her on screen husband and tragically died last year.
“Richard wrote to me and said, ‘Darling, we can’t write anything for you because of Alan’, and I said, ‘No of course, it would be sad, too sad’,” she revealed.
“It’s too soon. It’s absolutely right because it’s supposed to be for Comic Relief – but there isn’t much comic relief in the loss of our dear friend really, only just over a year ago.
Red Nose Day Actually will air as part of BBC One’s Comic Relief fundraiser tonight (March 24).
