Gabrielle Union has recalled the occasion she and boyfriend Dwyane Wade visited President Barack Obama at the White House.

The Think Like A Man actress stopped by the Chelsea Lately show last night where she revealed her shock that Barack and his wife, First Lady Michelle, were normal and down-to-earth.

"We’ve been to their house; you guys might have heard of the White House. I guess I was thinking that they would have Pâté and this super fancy stuff so we’re trying to eat before we go, just in case they didn’t have good food," Gabrielle told Chelsea Handler.

"I’m from Omaha and [Dwayne] is from Chicago and we’re like, 'We need to eat' just in case they got too grand. So we get there, and he’s got Jay-Z playing and Janet Jackson, potato salad and baked beans and we’re like, 'Yeah!' So we ate again."

Gabrielle also revealed that Miami Heat player Dwyane had a role in the upcoming rom-com. While most would expect he acted as her errand boy, Gabrielle says he actually took a more hands-on approach with the actual movie.

"I went from being one of the stars of the movie to 'Dwyane Wade is here!' So he was getting all the good treatment but I think he really believed he was [Martin] Scorsese," she said.

Think Like A Man is out in the States now.
