It’s emerged that Donald Trump shot a scene for 1992 Al Pacino drama Scent of a Woman that was swiftly cut by the film’s director, according to actor Chris O’Donnell.
O’Donnell was speaking on Conan O’Brien’s US talk show when he revealed that the US President demanded that he and then-wife Marla Maples appeared in the film because location scouts wanted to shoot a scene in one of his New York hotels.
However, the Oscar-nominated director Martin Brest (Midnight Run, Beverly Hills Cop) ended up leaving the moment on the cutting room floor.
The actor, who appeared in the drama opposite Pacino and Gabrielle Anwar, described how original pages for scenes shot at the Plaza Hotel were updated to include a shot showing Trump leaving a limousine with Maples.
“It was explained to us that in order for us to film at The Plaza, we had a little walk on part for Donald and Marla.“
