Ian Somerhalder, President Obama Talk Public Policy

by at . Comments

Just a typical day in the life of Ian Somerhalder.

U.S. President Barack Obama held a breakfast Thursday with 25 young Hollywood guests, including the Vampire Diaries star, at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.

The meeting was part of Obama's "Young America Effort" in his 2012 reelection campaign, during which he urged the young stars to get involved.

Somerhalder Tweeted afterward:

"Totally surreal morning. Met up with some friends, had coffee with President Obama now tweeting. The 21st century... Let's do this."

He added, "Just spent my morning with this man talking about green energy, a better America and being a young American ... wow."

The caption, "Me and President Obama if it was 1962."

Pretty funny, and cool. Others in attendance: Jeremy Renner, Zachary Quinto, Jessica Alba, Dianna Agron, Sophia Bush, Jared Leto and more.

Alba shared a group shot of the 25 stars and tweeted, "Got up bright and early to hear Barack Obama speak with an awesome group."

"Maybe the only man I truly get nervous around," Glee cast member Agron, 26, tweeted. "Well worth the early wake up call."

We would say so, though Rush Limbaugh, who called Obama Barack Kardashian this week, will probably have a field day with this.
