"I have this thing that when I’m really nervous, I have this thing where I say something really appropriate … "

Apparently even Charlize Theron gets tongue tied when she meets famous people — or at least when she comes face to face with the leader of the free world.

On Jimmy Kimmel Live Monday, the Mad Max: Fury Road star revealed to Jimmy Kimmel that when she met President Barack Obama on the set of the late night show, she briefly lost her mind and invited him to a strip club.

Recalling the incident, Theron recounted how Obama had said that he liked being on Kimmel because it helped him to reach a younger demographic. Theron replied, "Well, if you’re looking for a younger demographic, I can take you to a strip club."

"I have this thing that when I’m really nervous, I have this thing where I say something really inappropriate and it’s like Tourettes," she tried to explain.

Theron was visibly still haunted, covering her face in her hands, laughing in horror: "But then I couldn’t sleep for weeks because every time I closed my eyes, I went, ‘Agh, oh my God, I said that.’ "

She added: "Michelle Obama is going to kill me!"

Kimmel told her to big laughs, "If you said that to President Clinton, you would probably still be there."
