5 of the weirdest revelations from the Stormy Daniels interview

This week, a 2011 In Touch interview with porn actress and director Stormy Daniels about a relationship she had with Donald Trump resurfaced in the public.

On January 12th, the Wall Street Journal reported that one of Trump’s lawyers had payed Daniels $130,ooo to keep silent about the affair, which brought renewed attention to the interview. Here are some of the weirdest details Daniels revealed about her time with Trump.

1 When Daniels asked about Trump’s wife, he brushed her off.

Trump married his current wife, Melania Trump in 2005, shortly before he met Daniels in 2006. Daniels told In Touch that she tried to broach the subject of Trump’s marriage when they first met at a charity golf event in Lake Tahoe, but Trump said, “Oh, don’t worry about her,” and changed the subject. Trump’s youngest son, Barron, was an infant at the time.

2 Trump didn’t cut his hair because of a superstition.

Trump reportedly confided in Daniels that, although he had been offered free makeovers, he thought cutting his hair would cause him to lose his fortune.

3 He asked her for an autograph after they had sex.

When the two met, Daniels’s film company was promoting itself by handing out merchandise. And Daniels remembered having average sex with Trump, after which he asked her to sign a DVD.

“It was probably in one of his gift bags that he picked up because we were giving them out. I remember, it was, and I remember I signed it to him,” Daniels said.


4 Trump is terrified of sharks.

Daniels recalled watching Shark Week with Trump and that he said he was afraid of sharks.

"I donate to all these charities, and I would never donate to any charity that helps sharks. I hope all the sharks die," Trump reportedly told her.

The billionaire confirmed his hatred of sharks in one of his characteristic Trump tweets in 2013.


5 He compared her to his daughter.

Trump reportedly told Daniels that she was “beautiful and smart just like his daughter.” But Daniels didn’t specify whether Trump meant Tiffany or Ivanka Trump.

The details that Daniels revealed to In Touch are outlandish, but given Trump’s penchant for making false claims, we’re inclined to believe her. Shark Week, anyone?
