Naturally born clergymen: Woody Harrelson reveals that he almost became a minister after being accompanied by his classmate Mike Pence and recalling his painful dinner with President Trump
- Woody Harrelson had considered being a minister prior to his acting days and once gave a sermon at Hanover College with the help of Mike Pence
- & # 39; (T) He's a little weird, but Mike Pence was two years older than me in Hanover and he was a kind of man who led me through it, & # 39; said Harrelson in an interview
- The actor spoke with Marc Maron on the WTF podcast and also shared his memories of a dinner in 2002 with President Trump
- & # 39; (Y) you realize how a second can be fast, or can feel a second forever, & # 39; said Trump
- Harrelson attended that dinner as a guest at Jesse Ventura, who tried to convince Trump to be his current mate in the Democratic primary 2004
Woody Harrelson spoke in a new interview about his ties with both President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence.
The actor, 58, appeared on the WTF podcast with Marc Maron, where he extended his earlier revelation that he and Pence both went to Hanover College in Indiana at the same time – Pence graduated in 1981 and Harrelson in 1983.
He also gave a little more information about a dinner in 2002 that he attended with the former governor of Minnesota, Jesse Ventura, who asked the actor to come because Trump would ask him to serve as his running partner in the Democratic primary of 2004.
& # 39; So I sat through that dinner, & # 39; said Harrelson, who promoted his new film Zombieland 2.
& # 39; And you realize how a second can be fast, or feel a second forever. & # 39;

Divine Wisdom: Woody Harrelson (left in the university's yearbook) had considered being a minister before his acting days and once gave a sermon at Hanover College with help from Mike Pence (right in the university's yearbook)
Dinner and a show: the actor spoke to Marc Maron on the WTF podcast and also shared his memories of a dinner in 2002 with President Trump (above with Melania in 2002)
Harrelson spoke early in the interview about how his love of acting came about and revealed that his first major performance as a teenager came while he was still in high school.
& # 39; I had to become a minister. I gave a sermon at the age of 17 and I did another at Hanover College, & said Harrelson.
& # 39; And this is a bit bizarre, but Mike Pence was two years older than me in Hanover and he was a kind of man who led me through it. & # 39;
Maron then jumped in to Pence & # 39; the frightening man & # 39; and asked Harrelson if he & # 39; frightening & # 39; was in college.
Harrelson, who remained respectful to Pence throughout the interview, replied: & # 39; No, not at all. See, we weren't friends or anything, but you know he was very religious and he was the man who led the thing for students who wanted to do religious things. & # 39;
However, that future as a minister went up in smoke when Harrelson, in the course of his theology studies, came to believe that the texts were more of a man-made concept.
In addition, the actor demonstrated an impressive amount of knowledge about the subject.
Less interesting to him, however, was a dinner with Trump in 2002, in which he told Maron that he was present at … & # 39; governor of Minnesota at one point … wrestler … Jesse Ventura. & # 39;
Harrelson then regretted his fading memory before continuing with his story.

Harrelson respected Pence throughout the interview and said he was very religious during his school days. As pictured above, Vice President Pence speaks at a meeting for Republican gubernatorial candidate Tate Reeves in Mississippi on Monday
& # 39; Jesse Ventura called me and he says I'm coming to New York and I'm going to eat with Trump. He will try to convince me to be his running mate for the 2004 Democratic ticket, & Harrelson recalled.
That dinner was long and painful because of his report.
& # 39; He just wanted to talk about himself and he does that constantly & # 39 ;, said Harrelson.
& # 39; It's almost like a God complex. & # 39;
Meanwhile, Maron remembered Trump as a & # 39; reliable clown & # 39; from the time he would give talk shows a final second and said hosts would ask for that & # 39; weird, self-centered rich man to be his weird self & # 39 ;.
