He told the Daily Beast he and the blonde former-model went on a "couple of dates". I met her here in NY and we went on a couple of dates.

"Uh... I did", he reluctantly told the reporter, admitting to the relationship with Ivanka. "I didn't do it for political reasons". Grace's comments on dating Ivanka Trump make it clear that he feels pretty awkward about it.

The two became an item in 2006 when they were spotted getting cozy at Ivanka's 25th birthday celebration in Las Vegas.

The first daughter married Jared Kushner in 2009 and they share three children together: daughter Arabella Rose, 7, and sons Joseph Frederick, 4, and Theodore James, 2.

"No one, in my opinion, should listen to what actors have to say politically most of the time", Grace said about his decision to join BlacKkKlansman, "But I thought, people should listen to Spike, because he can speak on a national level with his art".

Now, Grace says he's often gobsmacked by the Trump administration's actions. "We met through mutual friends", she dished to NY magazine of Kushner in 2009 according to The Daily Beast.

Everyone knows that the most intimidating thing about dating is having to meet the parents.

Kushner is now a senior adviser to Trump.

Due to legal restrictions, neither of Grace's fan edits can be shared publicly but, in the meantime, audiences can see the actor in a very different kind of film when Spike Lee's BlacKkKlansman opens in theaters everywhere on August 10.

Grace also suggested that BlacKkKlansman is pertinent to today's politics.

In 2016, Topher married True Blood actress, Ashley Hinshaw, at a luxury estate in Montecito, California.
