Alexis Bledel Talks DNC & President Obama (Exclusive)

Alexis Bledel proudly wears her Obama 2012 t-shirt at the Democratic National Convention held at the Time Warner Cable Arena on Wednesday (September 5) in Charlotte, N.C.

“I’m at the DNC this week in support of President Obama‘s reelection campaign,” the 30-year-old actress emailed Just Jared exclusively. “Young voters made all the difference in 2008, and we’ll need America’s youth to turn up at the polls again this November in order for him to be reelected. So much has changed for the better over the last four years, and here at the Democratic Convention we’ve been listening to so many inspiring accounts of the President’s strong leadership and core values, including a sincere and moving speech by the First Lady, and a charged recommendation from former President Clinton.”

Alexis continued, “Tune in tonight for a special live feed (at 8pm EST) to see what I’m up to here just before President Obama addresses the nation. You can catch it at And I hope everyone will register to vote at if you haven’t already!”

Other exclusive pictures below include Alexis during her trip to New Mexico last month where she helped register voters and met groups of young people who participate in volunteer work for the Obama campaign in their communities.

  • Liz

    Go Obama!
    And btw, we see Rory following Obama’s campaign!

  • sillyme

    My favorite Clinton line about Obama: “A few years ago, this guy would have been carrying our bags.”

    This guy is more of a sexual predator than Herman Cain (Cain was never accused of rape…Clinton was) and yet it’s okay…because he’s a Democrat!

    So much for the party that respects women.

  • Philipp

    @Liz: I was thinking the same thing!

  • Nano

    Glad to see she’s looking healthy and it was just the picture that made her look so thin! She’s so perfect and she seems quite smart too!

    I know that a lot of fans, blogs & forums keeps on rooting Alexis for Anastasia Steele, no contest on that. But Mike Bomer, an “openly gay” is also being rooted Xtian Grey?!?! So NOT.

  • larkine

    Alexis is very soon to be going 31 yrs old!
    And whatever she’s taking or using, I’ll take a 50 gallons drums of it just to prolong the ageing process LOL

  • reidell

    Alexis face is very lovely. Her acting is much desired for but I give her much props for keep on trying & studying the biz, as there is something compelling about her somewhat elusiveness & timidity.

  • deshaun

    Go go go Alexis!!! Go on hypnotizing w/ your fiercing blue eyes these voters to vote on Obama. Your bluest eyes is your best accessory & lucky charm in this campaigning job LOL

  • deshaun

    Go go go Alexis!!! Go on hypnotizing w/ your fiercing blue eyes these voters to vote on Obama. Your ‘bluest’ eyes is your best accessory & lucky charm in this campaigning job LOL

  • Tom

    One would think that a president seeking reelection would have to have accomplishments and a good economy. One would think that was the test of whether he should be reelected.

    But of course that is now impossible, so the Democratic Machine Media has decided Obama’s True Test is whether or not he can give a good 50 minute speech.

  • mimi

    OMG those eyes..they are beautiful! claddaghtheseries..finally on youtube!

  • SimplementMoi

    I can’t believe she’s thirty. She looks gorgeous.

  • Mimi

    Anastasia Steele : )

  • booster

    W/ all these HW celebs openly supporting him; President Obama should have been an actor in the 1st place LOL

  • jenifred

    Alexis seems to be that shy to be doing all these campaigning but I guessed that she had worked out now that timidness already – good for her to broaden her horizon outside HW.

  • aeros

    Thanks again for a new thread JJ. Alexis always looks so confident, beautiful, lovely day by day. I always loved her. You go girl.

  • marsh

    It seems like that she could *eternally* look like a teenager – how lucky can that be…

  • shuvonne

  • bonnie

    A smart, level-headed girl and a decent actress who’s not just another famewh0re… Hollywood needs more like her!

  • fudgie

    W/ that petite frame, small face & flawless looking skin; she would never look old… yet or not for a very long while. It just helps when one have that kind of physical attributes.

  • pyt

    I really like her. I hope she stays as real & grounded as she seems to be even when she’s starting at GG.

  • vanness

    My likewise thoughts exactly!!!
