In 1998, one day after her divorce from Kenneth Branagh became final, Emma Thompson received a call in her trailer on the set of "Primary Colors". She answered and heard the terrifying words, “Hi, it’s Donald #trump here.”

Us Weekly reports that Thompson shared her story on a Scandinavian talk show called Skavlan on Thursday. As per the source, Us Weekly, recounting the story to talk show host Fredrik Skavlan, Thompson said she was in her trailer on the set in Los Angeles when she got a call from #Donald Trump.

Emma Thompson was surprised

A stunned Thompson, who had never met Trump, was trying to make sense of the call when he offered to put her up in Trump Towers and proposed a dinner date.

"Well, you know, I think we would get on very well — maybe we could have dinner sometime," Thompson said Trump told her.

"I didn't know what to do with myself," the actress admitted. Emma also said that she declined the offer from Donald Trump. After recovering from the shock revelation, the SVT joked that #Emma Thompson could be the first lady. "You could have stopped him," added one of the guests. But Thompson, said she had still not met the U.S. leader.

The Washington Post points out that at the time of the call to Thompson, which was some time between May and August of 1997 when "Primary Colors" was shooting, Trump had announced his separation from his second wife, Marla Maples in May of that year. The two would finalize their divorce in 1999.

It’s hard to believe the model-loving Republican president once held a candle for a woman Meryl Streep has described as a “rabid man-eating feminist like me.” But in the 1990s, Thompson was still establishing her career in the American market, so her political leanings may not have been as well-known.

And at the time, Trump was still wavering between the Democrats and the GOP.

Trump went on to marry his third wife, Melania. Meanwhile, Thompson married her "Sense and Sensibility" co-star Greg Wise, with whom she has a daughter and a son.
