Christie Brinkley did not think much of Donald Trump’s private jet invite

The 67-year-old model recalled how she had to turn down advances from the former US President after meeting him on a number of occasions before he ran for presidency in 2016.

When asked if Trump had ever tried it on with her, she said: “Oh yeah”.

Christie Brinkley ‘didn’t think much’ of The Donald

The star then shared how he called her hotel room in an attempt to convince her to come on his private jet.

Christie recalled: “He said, ‘Hi Christie, it’s The Donald’. He actually calls himself ‘The Donald’.”

Despite Trump’s attempts to charm her, Christie says she “didn’t think much” of the businessman.

From California to Paris

Brinkley also explained how unwanted attention from a boss who groped her breasts inspired her to quit her job in California and move to Paris – where her modelling career began after she was discovered by a fashion photographer.

She told The Times newspaper: “I was like, ‘Um, excuse me but could you please not do that?’

“I had a couple of pay cheques and my dad gave me 500 bucks. I left for Europe with $1,000 in my pocket and I didn’t come home for four-and-a-half years.”

‘If I had that body now I’d be happy’

Christie went on to have decades of success in modelling and admits she gets a sense of envy when she looks back at old photographs of herself.

Remembering a picture from the 1980s, she said: “I was thinking, ‘What am I going to do about my hips? They’re too big! How can I hide my thighs? And I’d better suck in my stomach.’

“I look at the picture now and go, ‘My God, I was so thin.’ If I had that body now I’d be happy.”
