She plays cold-as-ice First Lady Claire Underwood in Netflix’s House of Cards, currently on Season 3, but when actress Robin Wright met the real-life President and First Lady, she says her reception was nothing but warm.

“I met the Obamas at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner,” Wright told InStyle. “I was so nervous, but before the President even shook my hand, he leaned in and joked, ‘I just want you to know that I am nothing like Francis!”

Obama was of course referring of course to Kevin Spacey‘s portrayal of House of Cards‘ scheming Commander-In-Chief Francis Underwood. According to Wright, “He reiterated that three times during our conversation.”

Well said, Mr. President.
