Reese Witherspoon, Paul Rudd Speechless During Obama Meeting

Reese Witherspoon: 'Tongue Tied' In Obama Meeting

Even Oscar-winning movie stars forget their lines sometimes, and Reese Witherspoon told Entertainment Weekly that meeting President Obama left her absolutely tongue tied.

Touring the White House with 'How Do You Know,' co-star Paul Rudd, Witherspoon got the call: the President wants to see you.

"We went to the Oval Office, and there was Hillary Clinton having a meeting with Joe Biden. It was insane," she told EW. "Then Obama came out and he turned to Paul and said, 'I loved you in I Love You, Man.' I grabbed Paul and I was like, 'Are you freaking out right now?' He's like, 'I'm freaking out!'"

And when the President asked Witherspoon what she was doing in Washington, it got even more insane.

'We're doing a movie and...uh, I'm playing a character, who, uh...I'm working with Owen, uh...Owen...'" she recalled. "I could not remember Owen's last name. And Paul goes, 'Wilson!' Like it was a party game."

Let's just hope the President doesn't make any cameos in her next film -- that would be quite the difficult day on set.
