(Newser) – We’ve all done silly stuff on a dare, but probably not on the level of actor/author/comic/crazy guy David Cross, who says he snorted cocaine not 40 feet from President Obama at the White House Correspondents' Dinner (not, for the record, held at the White House). With cabinet secretaries, Supreme Court justices and his “fancy Hollywood actress” girlfriend Amber Tamblyn all in the house, the Arrested Development star … well, let’s hear it from him:

“It’s crazy and there’s security, Secret Service is standing there,” Cross, 45, said during a stand-up performance last night. “I’ve got photos of all this. … I’m there and the president is right here and with all these people at the table,” he did the deed. “Maybe 40 feet from the president of the United States!”
