Marianne Williamson made quite an impression during the Democratic Presidential Candidate Debate on Thursday evening.
And it seems that the Oprah insider / self-help guru life is full of interesting trivia.
The long shot candidate once lived with a 17-year-old Laura Dern, according to a New York Times profile of the actress published in May.
Odd couple: Laura Dern was roommates with presidential candidate Marianne Williamson, back for her break in Hollywood
The talent and spiritual adviser of Big Little Lies were open-minded before the actress made her big breakthrough in Hollywood.
Per profile: & # 39; After Dern completed her high school education a year earlier, her mother helped her achieve legal emancipation, making it easier to work.
& # 39; At age 17, she moved to her own apartment, where her roommate was Marianne Williamson, the spiritual teacher and self-help writer (and the current long-shot candidate for the President of the United States), who started Project Angel Food to help people to feed with HIV. / AIDS, from their living room.
& # 39; Dern enrolled at UCLA with the intention of doubling major in psychology and journalism, but two days after the semester she retired to do Blue Velvet.
It looks like the couple also kept in touch. They shared a photo during a Joint Spiritual Theater Union in 2006.

Their connection turned social media into a frenzy, allowing more than a few Twitter users to imagine the interactions of the strange couple. Many also took pleasure in Williamson's spaciousness.
& # 39; Imagine that Laura Dern accidentally leaves the Blue Velvet script in the living room when a stoned Marianne Williamson arrives at 2 o'clock & # 39; morning stumbles and starts yelling that Frank Booth sounds louder than any human could scream, & wrote a user in reference to the surreal David Lynch movie.
Another referring to the director of Wild At Heart wrote: & # 39; Marianne Williamson is a Lynchian concept and it makes perfect sense that Laura Dern was her roommate.
& # 39; I would like to get high with Marianne Williamson and Laura Dern in a room full of crystals and Himalayan salt lamps, & # 39; another joke.
Williamson was full of wild sound bites during Thursday's Democratic presidential debate on NBC.
In a memorable moment, the candidate stated that her first act as president would be to call the Prime Minister of New Zealand and call the United States a better country to raise children.
& # 39; Girlfriend, you are through & # 39 ;, Williamson told Prime Minister Jacinda Arden, who said New Zealand is the best place in the world to raise a child.
Downgraded to the outer stage on the left flank, Williamson did not speak for the first 30 minutes of the debate until he came into discussion about health care policies.

Williamson confused the other candidates' health policy positions as & # 39; superficial fixes & # 39; and said that President Donald Trump won without a plan by only & # 39; Make America Great Again & # 39; to repeat.
She went on to say that democrats should go & # 39; deeper & # 39; and that & # 39; chemicals & # 39; are the cause of many health problems in the US.
In her final statement, Williamson stated that she & # 39; love for political purposes & # 39; would bet to defeat Trump.
However, her unusual performance attracted a lot of appreciation on social media, where many compared her to a & # 39; Wine aunt & # 39; with & # 39; healing crystal energy & # 39 ;.
& # 39; If the standard is for the candidate with whom you want to split wine, Marianne Williamson has won & # 39 ;, wrote a Twitter user.

& # 39; Marianne Williamson is all my mother's friends when the wine starts & # 39 ;, another wrote. & # 39;
& # 39; When asked why they voted for President Marianne Williamson, more than 30% of Americans said they were the kind of woman they could go to a wine bar, & # 39; another joked.
Singer Katy Perry felt a like-minded spirit in Williamson and wrote: "I'm not going to lie I look like Marianne Williamson after a few glasses of red."
The official Williamson campaign proposal is a call for $ 100 billion in reparations for slavery that is spread over 10 years, although it has also thrown away $ 200 and $ 500 billion as possible recovery figures.
