(LOS ANGELES) — After porn stars Brooklyn Lee and Tasha Reign were shooed away from Bill Clinton by a Secret Service agent, the former president called them back over for a photo, the actresses say.

Porn actresses Brooklyn Lee and Tasha Reign posed for a photo with Clinton at a gala fundraiser in Monaco this week, TMZ first reported.

Lee and Reign told TMZ on Thursday that they approached Clinton in the hopes of meeting him and having their photo taken with him. When Secret Service agents repelled their advances, Clinton then told the agents to call the actresses back, posing for a photo and engaging in brief small talk.

The actresses said they attended the gala, a fundraiser for Prince Albert of Monaco’s charitable foundation and the Clinton Foundation, as guests of Penthouse magazine owner and FriendFinder CEO Marc Bell.
