During an interview with late-night host Conan O'Brien, Oyelowo recalled his "mind-blowingly moving" first meeting with President Barack Obama when he screened his civil rights movie "Selma" at the White House in 2014.
Oyelowo said that the former president invited him and three other people into a secret room at the White House where the Gettysburg Address was kept in a glass cabinet.
"He took us in to look at it, and I kid you not, the most incredible thing happened: he started reading it," Oyelowo said, adding that President Obama went on to "read the entire thing."
However, Oyelowo's special moment with Obama was spoiled when he told George Clooney the story on a recent film shoot.
Clooney told the actor: "Oh yeah, Barack, he did that to me."
"It turns out this is something President Obama did all the time?" Conan asked. "It's like a bit," Oyelowo confirmed. "It's his little thing he does."
