    Which Famous Couple Rendered Emily Blunt "Hysterically" Starstruck?

    Emily Blunt, ELLE UK elleuk.com

    Emily Blunt and John Krasinski aren't exactly strangers to power coupledom, but there's one famous—and oh so formidable—couple that left the British beauty positively starstruck.

    As in, dissolving into a fit of giggles, hysterically making a fool of herself starstruck.

    Or at least, the Elle UK cover girl admitted as much to the magazine. So which dynamic duo rendered her into an understandingly blithering mess?

    Meeting the leader of the free world will do that a girl:  It was President Barack Obama and his ever unflappable wife, first lady Michelle Obama.

    So how'd this meet-and-embarrassing-greet go down?

    "I was so starstruck...we were at the White House having cocktails and this woman said, 'Would you like to meet President Obama?'" the 29-year-old recalled. "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 9 feet tall. I think my eyes rolled back in my head. I gave Michelle a hug and she had skin like silk."

    Well, it may not have been the smoothest introduction, but it's safe to assume she left a lasting impression!
