Scandal star Bellamy Young says she acted like a "paralyzed koala" when she met First Lady Michelle Obama at the White House Correspondents' Dinner
What happens when the First Lady of the United States meets the First Lady of Scandal?
A mutual fan freakout, apparently.
Scandal star Bellamy Young tells PEOPLE she behaved like a “paralyzed koala” when she and her TV husband Tony Goldwyn met President Obama and Michelle Obama at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner on April 25 – but it sounds like the real-life FLOTUS was just as excited about the encounter.
When she saw Young, Obama held out her arms and exclaimed, “Why did you kill your son?” – proving that she’s definitely up to date on Shonda Rhimes‘ hit political drama.

“I got so paralyzed and made little squeaky noises, and then I just hugged her,” Young says. “It was awesome, but I was completely unnerved.”
