Woody Harrelson recalled his past experience meeting both Donald Trump and Mike Pence in a recent interview on comedian Marc Maron’s podcast.
The “Zombieland: Double Tap” actor appeared on an episode of “WTF With Marc Maron” where he told two stories. The first had to do with meeting now Vice President Mike Pence when he was 17, the other about how he had dinner with Donald Trump.
The actor — who was once “quite religious” and previously invited people to his home for Bible study — told the host that he crossed paths with Pence at Hanover College years ago, according to Yahoo Entertainment.
“I did a sermon when I was 17, and then I did another one at Hanover College,” he explained. “In fact, this is kind of bizarre but Mike Pence was two years older at the same school, at Hanover, and he was the guy who kinda mentored me through it.”
The actor described Pence as the go-to person on campus for religious matters.
Later in the interview, he described a dinner he had in 2002 with Pence’s future running mate, Trump. Harrelson explained that former professional wrestler Jesse Ventura, who was then the governor of Minnesota, invited him to dinner with Trump and his future wife, Melania. At the time, Harrelson claims Ventura believed Trump would ask him to be his running mate in the 2004 election.
