MERYL Streep says the only person she has been star-struck on is US President Barack Obama.

The 60-year-old actress can usually maintain her composure when she meets other actors she respects but admits she was in awe of Obama - America's first black President - and his wife Michelle.

"I went to the Whitehouse and was star-struck by our president and first lady, although I was also impressed by Bruce Springsteen, who was there as well," she said.

Streep - who can currently be seen in the new romantic comedy It's Complicated opposite Alec Baldwin - is fully behind President Obama and believes he is more than capable of making the right political choices for the United States. - Bang
