(Newser) – Just another day in the life of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie: The super-couple was spotted yesterday in the Oval Office, having a little chat with President Obama. They were in town for a screening of Jolie's directorial debut, In the Land of Blood and Honey, at the Holocaust museum, the AP notes. A White House deputy press secretary tells the New York Post that they spoke about "[Angelina's] work to raise the profile of preventing mass atrocities and combating sexual violence against women."

Well, either that or they were there to discuss some other "matter of national importance, like what gift to buy for Jay-Z and Beyoncé's baby," snarks Joe Coscarelli in New York. Jezebel, meanwhile, has a whole bunch of ideas about potential conversational topics. Sample line of dialogue: "Really, Mr. President? You want me to hit you as hard as I can?"
