In a new interview with Elle UK, actress Emily Blunt revealed her most embarrassing moment in life: Laughing in the face of President Barack Obama when she attended the Kennedy Center honors with husband John Krasinski last December.

"I was so starstruck... we were at the White House having cocktails and this woman said, "Would you like to meet President Obama?" They introduced me and then he turned to me and went, "Oh. Oh. You are a wonderful actress." And I laughed, screechingly and hysterically, I couldn’t stop. They had to usher me away. I fell apart. I don’t know what happened to me. He looked nine-feet tall. I think my eyes rolled back in my head. I gave Michelle a hug and she had skin like silk."

Smooth. In other news, Barack Obama is actually only 6'1".
