Who knew President Obama can play basketball? It seems that he is so excited for his impending retirement that he’s entertaining his personal interests these days. According to George Clooney, he had the pleasure of playing ball with President Obama. The president even asked him to invite some friends over. We wonder who got more starstruck? The President or the actor?


Most Hollywood actors will never forget the night they took home their first Oscar award. But for Clooney, playing private basketball games with the president of the United States are also quite memorable. During the interview of Clooney with Esquire, the award winning actor talked about his remarkable experience playing basketball with President Barack Obama.

“We played here in L.A. I did a fundraiser here with president Barack, and he said, ‘What are you doing tomorrow morning?'” “I go, ‘What time?’ He goes, ‘5:30. You wanna play some hoops?’ And I go, ‘Yeah.’ And he goes, ‘All right, we’ll set it up. You got any of your friends want to play?'”

Even if Clooney is a movie legend, a basketball game invitation from the United States president was an opportunity that the Ocean’s Eleven actor could not pass up.
