Woody: We’re not Ape-ing the Don­ald!

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

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?”
