During actress Gabrielle Union’s sit-down on the Chelsea Lately show Thursday night to promote her new film, Think Like A Man, the talk briefly shifted from relationships to politics when Union recalled her dinner with the Obamas.

“I guess I was thinking that they would have pate and this super fancy stuff, so we’re trying to eat before we go, just in case they didn’t have good food,” the actress told Chelsea Handler.

But Union was in for a surprise when she arrived at the White House with boyfriend and Miami Heat basketball player Dwyane Wade.

“We get there and [Obama's] got Jay-Z playing and Janet Jackson, potato salad and baked beans and we’re like, ‘Yeah!’ So we ate again.”

The star kept the laughs coming as she talked about the bong-loving “losers” she’s dated and getting her hair weave pat-down by the TSA, joking that airport security thinks she has “weapons of mass destruction” in her hair.
