Michelle Obama, America’s coolest mom, has lived in the White House for eight years, but she still gets excited when she meets handsome famous people. At a screening of Star Trek Beyond at the White House on Wednesday, she introduced Chris Pine, Simon Pegg, and Karl Urban and promptly wigged out for a second. “Isn’t it cool that they’re here? There are movie stars here,” she said. “See, I still do this when movie stars show up.”
Then, she said what everyone was thinking: “Let’s just admit it, ladies, they’re very handsome, aren’t they? I mean, we’ve got to just let that out. I could tell you wanted to just release that.” Whew.
The screening was part of the Obama’s “Joining Forces” initiative, which is designed to show support for military members and their families — about 100 veterans and active military members attended the screening. “This is just a small but hopefully special way that we can show you how much we here at the White House and how many people, including all of the creators and the stars of Star Trek, how cool they think you all are,” Obama said. “We can’t say it enough.”
