Rob Lowe has some interesting stories about his time working on NBC’s The West Wing, including once being questioned in the White House by Bill Clinton‘s national security advisor about the hit show.

The actor recently visited the popular YouTube series Hot Ones, where he answered questions while eating hot wings, and was asked about the rumor that had been going around about then-Secretary of State Madeleine Albright once showing up to the set of The West Wing. Lowe, who played fan-favorite Sam Seaborn on the Aaron Sorkin series, confirmed the story.

“Madeleine Albright absolutely came to the set, very very late. We were shooting at the [John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts]. She wanted to meet everybody,” said Lowe to host Sean Evans, adding that the cast was shocked but immediately agreed.

The 57-year-old lead of 9-1-1: Lone Star then launched into the national security advisor story.

“I was in the White House with Bill Clinton and was summoned to the national security [advisor’s] office, who was a really gnarly, tough, bare-knuckle dude named Sandy Berger,” said the television icon. Snapping his fingers, Lowe said Berger told him “Sit down.”

Lowe added: “And I’m thinking, ‘Oh, I’m f*cked. This had got to be about my taxes.’ And he was like, ‘Why isn’t there a national security advisor on your show?’ And I was like, ‘This is what this guy’s thinking about in the middle of the day?’”
