If you had to ask Woody Harrelson who he would invite to a dinner party, Donald Trump would definitely not make the list. Not because of any political reasoning but because the Oscar-nominee has already sat at the dinner table with the now-president and the experience was "brutal." 

The dinner took place back in the early 2000s before Trump was president. Speaking about the event in an interview with Esquire, Harrelson said he received an invite to the dinner party by his friend Jesse Ventura, a former pro wrestler and ex-governor of Minnesota who Trump was hoping to persuade to be his running mate for the Democratic ticket in 2004. The plan was to make the pitch to Ventura over dinner with Melania at the Trump Tower.

"And it was, let me tell you, a brutal dinner," Harrelson said of the two-and-a-half-hour affair. While the "Cheers" star said the evening was punctuated with a few entertaining moments,  the dinner party as a whole was a disaster. Harrelson explained why.

"Now, at a fair table with four people, each person is entitled to 25 percent of the conversation, right? I’d say Melania got about 0.1 percent, maybe. I got about 1 percent. And the governor, Jesse, he got about 3 percent. Trump took the rest," he said.

Eventually Harrelson said he couldn’t take it any longer and had to excuse himself from the table for a break to go smoke some dope.

"It got so bad I had to go outside and burn one before returning to the monologue monopoly," he said. "Listen, I came up through Hollywood, so I’ve seen narcissists. This guy was beyond. It blew my mind."

Harrelson said there was one nugget of truth that Trump shared that night though.

"He said, 'You know, I’m worth four billion dollars,' or maybe he said five billion dollars — one of those numbers, I forget. Anyway, he said, 'I’m worth however- many billion dollars. But when I die, no matter how much it is, I know my kids are going to fight over it.' That was the one true statement he made that night, and I thought, Okay, yeah, that’s pretty cool."
