Woody: We’re not Ape-ing the Donald!
WOODY Harrelson has said the War For The Planet Of The Apes plot’s startling similarities to the Trump administration are pure coincidence.
The actor (above) plays a morally questionable colonel intent on persecuting a group of refugee apes by building a wall in the film.
But he insisted that work on the movie had already begun before real life started to reflect the storyline.
Harrelson admitted: “Well, there are definitely parallels.
“None of it is deliberate though.
“We were shooting a year ago and there wasn’t the slightest idea that Trump would actually become President, so it was before his ‘wall’ became this whole thing.”
Talking about his character, Harrelson added: “He’s a guy who thinks he’s doing the right thing, but has done some terrible stuff along the way.
“Even the most evil guy, like, even Donald Trump thinks he’s being a great guy, you know?”
