Going through the names of visitors to the White House released this evening, TPMDC has spotted several A-listers.

Oprah Winfrey was at the White House on Inauguration Day, when President Obama had a private party with close friends.

Feb. 17 she met with First Lady Michelle Obama in the White House residence.

Academy Award Winner Denzel Washington, who was among the emcees at the Lincoln Memorial concert inauguration weekend, was at the White House either May 7 or May 9. The White House says one of the visitors is a “false positive” of someone with the same name.

Tennis great Serena Williams was among the visitors to the White House on July 14, July 24 and July 27. On one of those visits she was in the White House residence.

Actor Hill Harper, a close personal friend of Obama’s who appeared with him on the campaign trail in Iowa, was at the White House May 12 and May 14. On the first visit he met with the president.

Some of these celebs have been reported either by eagle-eyed reporters or released via photos by the official White House photographers.

Worth noting the records are not exhaustive – they only reflect the names requested via Freedom of Information Act the new disclosure policy. Corrected.
