Actor Vince Vaughn finally spoke out about the criticism he received after a video of him chatting with President Donald Trump went viral back in January.
Vaughn opened up about what really happened during an interview published Friday by the Los Angeles Times. Vaughn had run into Trump at a college football game in New Orleans.
“In my career I’ve met a lot of politicians who I’ve always been cordial to; I’ve met Nancy Pelosi and was cordial to her as well,” Vaughn told the outlet.
“It was the only time I’ve ever met him,” he said. “We said hello. He was very personable. I didn’t get into policies.”
“I think people are more charged than ever about these things,” he continued. “But I don’t think most people take that stuff as seriously as the small percentage that’s making noise about it. I was raised with the idea that you could have different likes and beliefs and you should respect and defend that in other people, not shout it down. The people you disagree with the most, you should stand up for their right to do that.”
