The nation’s most entertaining vice president crossed paths with her real-world counterpart again on Tuesday as actress Julia Louis-Dreyfus, star of the HBO series “Veep,” sat beside the nation’s actual second-in-command during a state dinner at the White House.

Ms. Louis-Dreyfus, who plays Vice President Selina Meyer on the hit comedy, dined alongside Vice President Joseph R. Biden at an event honoring French President Francois Hollande.

It’s not the first time the two vice presidents have met in the flesh. Last April, Ms. Louis-Dreyfus stopped by Mr. Biden’s office and the two were photographed together.

“I was happy to give him my advice, which he paid no attention to whatsoever,” she said after their first meeting.

Ms. Louis-Dreyfus wasn’t the only celebrity to rub elbows with top administration officials at Tuesday night’s black-tie affair.

Actor Bradley Cooper, perhaps best known for his lead role in “The Hangover” and its two sequels, was spotted talking to Secretary of State John Kerry.

Comedian and satirist Stephen Colbert, host of Comedy Central’s “The Colbert Report,” sat beside first lady Michelle Obama during dinner.
