Billy Bush Says 2005 Trump ‘Access Hollywood’ Tape Was ‘Weaponized’ Against Him (Video)
Former “Access Hollywood” anchor Billy Bush says he was “not prepared for what happened” after audio from a 2005 conversation between him and Donald Trump was leaked during the 2016 election.

“I just start kissing them. It’s like a magnet. Just kiss. I don’t even wait. And when you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything,” then-reality TV star Trump was overheard saying in the 2005 video. “Grab ‘em by the p—-. You can do anything.”

You're Right, Murder Mystery Isn't Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler's First Movie Together
Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler recently joined forces for their new Netflix film, Murder Mystery, but if you're a fan of their tight-knit friendship, you know this isn't their first movie together. After meeting in the '90s and bonding over French toast, the pair starred in 2011's Just Go With It. In a previous interview with Access Hollywood, Sandler couldn't help but gush about how much he loved working with Aniston in the romantic comedy. "I couldn't believe how quick and funny Jennifer [is]," he said. "I know she is [funny] in real life, but it was pretty amazing when we were together how much fun [we had] and how she added and ended up beating me in scenes. I'd walk back to the trailer saying, 'I gotta get some writers to help me.'" I can't wait to see them together again in Murder Mystery, which hits Netflix on June 14.
