Actor Vince Vaughn on Monday was spotted chatting with President Trump in the box seats during the College Football Playoff National Championship game in New Orleans.
Video posted online showed the “Wedding Crashers” actor and Trump in a short conversation in the stands next to first lady Melania Trump before the two men shake hands and Vaughn leaves.
A Vaughn representative told People magazine that the two men did not attend the game together and said that the pair “met this evening at the game briefly.”

The actor, 49, has in the past been active in supporting Republicans, including Sen. Rand Paul‘s (R-Ky.) presidential campaign in the 2016 Republican primary. In 2008 and 2012, he backed Paul’s father, former Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas), in the GOP presidential primaries.
Trump received a warm welcome in Louisiana on Tuesday as he attended the championship game between Louisiana State University and Clemson University, a sharp contrast from how he has been received at other sporting events, including the World Series game he attended in Washington, D.C.
LSU defeated Clemson 42-25 to win the game and the national championship.
