The Twitter storm over Vaughn’s presidential tete-a-tete notwithstanding, his career long ago lost the A-list luster that came with starring in ‘Wedding Crashers’ and dating Jennifer Aniston.
When was the last time you had rushed to see a Vince Vaughn movie or came across his name in a headline?
Yes, it’s been a while since Vaughn’s name popped up in a national conversation. Vaughn probably is realistic enough to admit that his career long ago lost the A-list luster that came from being a leading man in hit comedies like “Wedding Crashers” or by dating Jennifer Aniston and co-starring in their rom-com “The Break-up.”
But on Monday night and into Tuesday morning, Vaughn’s name was a top trending topic on Twitter. That’s because the actor, 49, was spotted having a friendly conversation with President Donald Trump and his wife, Melania, at the College Football Playoff Championship in New Orleans.
Vaughn, in fact, appeared to be deep in conversation with POTUS as they watched LSU defeat Clemson. The conversation ended with Vaughn and Trump shaking hands, and Vaughn getting an affectionate pat on the hand from the president.
Twitter exploded over the encounter after journalist Timothy Burke shared footage of it, along with the message, “I’m very sorry to have to share this video with you. All of it, every part of it.”
