It looks like Barack Obama is still popular with the younger crowd.

The president met with a number of Young Hollywood's hot celebs for an early morning meeting today at the Beverly Hilton to encourage them to get involved with his reelection campaign's Young America Effort, an initiative to build support and turnout among the younger voters who were key to the president's election four years ago.

So who exactly was there?

Among the two dozen recognizable faces were Jeremy Renner, Dianna Agron, Zachary Quinto, Ben McKenzie, Jessica Alba, Bryan Greenberg, Adam Rodriguez, Zach Braff, Brandon Routh, Ian Somerhalder, Jared Leto, Kal Penn and Sophia Bush.

We weren't kidding when we said young and hot.

Of course, after meeting the president, some of these big names took to Twitter to share their reactions.

"Maybe the only man I truly get nervous around. Worth the early wake up call," Agron tweeted.

One Tree Hill's Bush posted, "It was amazing to see @iansomerhalder @ZacharyQuinto @DiannaAgron and @BryanGreenberg with the POTUS today. Good peeps. #YoungAmericans."

"Got up bright & early to hear @BarackObama speak w an awesome group," Alba said.

"Just spent my morning w/this man talkn green energy,a better America&being a young American-wow," Somerhalder tweeted.

Rodriguez said, "Not my avg mornin, NOT ur avg Pres! Keep CHANGE movin n the right direction 4 more yrs!" with a photo of the two meeting.

Obama didn't directly solicit contributions, but it doesn't really look like he needed to.
