Sasha Obama and sister Malia attended their first state dinner at the White House this past week. While there, Sasha came face to face with a very handsome–and very popular–Hollywood celebrity.
Ryan Reynolds, the actor who currently stars in Deadpool, was invited to the state dinner because he hails from Canada. The actor met Sasha Obama as the guests circulated–and while they were talking, Malia Obama gave her sister a rather sarcastic thumbs up.

Malia and Sasha Obama were mentioned in speeches given by their dad, as well as by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau at the state dinner.

“It’s also touching to meet Malia and Sasha, who are here at their first State Dinner,” Trudeau said. “And quite frankly, the memories for me of being a kid and not being old enough to attend these kinds of events with my father almost makes me wish I had gone through my teenage years as a child of a world leader—but not quite.”
While it was no doubt flattering to be mentioned by the guest of honor at their first state dinner, it likely wasn’t nearly as exciting as meeting Ryan Reynolds.

The reactions on behalf of both Malia and Sasha Obama when meeting the movie star were priceless.
Ryan Reynolds attended the state dinner accompanied by his wife, actress Blake Lively.
