Does President Obama belong on the same list as John Kennedy and Bill Clinton when it comes to presidents who are sex symbols? That’s what Entertainment Tonight reporter Rocsi Diaz thinks.

First Lady Michelle Obama chuckled and smiled as Diaz asked her what it’s like to be married to someone who’s seen by many women as a “sex symbol,” in an interview that aired Tuesday evening.

“He’s got a little swag, you know, that’s okay,” the first lady said. “I’m proud of him. He’s a stylish man who is healthy and he’s smart and he’s passionate and he’s inspiring. And who wouldn’t fall in love with that, you know?”

Obama also addressed the controversy over her hairstyle, admitting she’s ready to move on from her bangs. “I’m like a girl, what’s next?” she said. “The bangs are a day-by-day proposition. They’re starting to grow out, getting a little irritating, but it’s okay. It’s okay. We’ll be good.”
