Rise and shine, young Hollywood — it's time grab a bite to eat with the President of the United States.
Many young actors had a different kind of early call on Thursday morning: a private breakfast with President Barack Obama, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
President Obama met privately at the Beverly Hilton Hotel with 25 of Hollywood's hottest young stars, urging them to involve themselves in his reelection campaign. The meeting was part of Obama's "Young America Effort," an initiative to build support among younger voters.
The attendees who shared the most important meal of the day with the President of the United States included Jeremy Renner, Dianna Agron, Zachary Quinto, Ben McKenzie, Jessica Alba, Bryan Greenberg, Adam Rodriguez, Zach Braff, Brandon Routh, Sarah Pantera, Ian Somerhalder, Jared Leto, Kal Penn and Sophia Bush.
The breakfast marked the end of Obama's two-day fundraising trip to Los Angeles. After the meeting, several of the guests tweeted their reactions:
"Maybe the only man I truly get nervous around. Worth the early wake up call."
"Truly inspirational talking with @BarackObama today"
"It was amazing to see @iansomerhalder @ZacharyQuinto @DiannaAgron and @BryanGreenberg with the POTUS today. Good peeps. #YoungAmericans."

"OBAMA 2012!! We're in @zacharyquinto @sophiabush @bryangreenberg @diannaagron @jessicaalba @_adamrodriguez"
Well, this certainly beats a catered set breakfast of stale bagels and warm orange juice!
