Escorted into the White House by several security guards, Jolie, 36, and Pitt, 48 met with Obama, 50, during a break from promoting Jolie's directorial debut, "In the Land of Blood and Honey," which, the actress says, came up over the course of their one-on-one discussion.

Traveling with Zana Marjanovic, who appears in the Bosnian love story's lead role, Jolie chatted with Obama "about Sarajevo and our concerns with things going on," she recounted to "Extra."
