The cast of ‘Hidden Figures’ took a trip to the White House to tell the stories of the brave women who made history in the fields of flight and science.

Co-stars Octavia Spencer, Taraji P. Henson and Janelle Monae accompanied by their director, met with the President and First Lady to celebrate the film and the accomplishments of women.

Although Octavia has probably met so many people she admires throughout her career, her face while meeting with Barack Obama is what we would all do if we came face-to-face with the president.
