Kate Mara is of two minds about the fact that President Obama is an outspoken devotee of House of Cards — the Netflix political drama in which she stars as Zoe Barnes, an ambitious journalist who has a symbiotic and sexual relationship with the House Majority Whip-turned-Vice President Frank Underwood (Kevin Spacey).

"It's the coolest news ever — it's very, very exciting and flattering" she tells The Hollywood Reporter. "And then it also really embarrasses me because I do some inappropriate things as Zoe, and I feel like it's like my dad watching. I'm like, 'Don't watch Episode 5!'"

Her character Zoe is ballsier about her father being privy to her sex life, though — as she so notoriously called her dad while Frank…  well…  let's just say Frank was kissing Zoe but not on her mouth.

Anyway, we would suggest that Kate's dad is probably used to seeing his daughters in compromising positions. After all, did you see Kate's sister, Rooney, in The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo?

Anyway, in case you wanna see the "inappropriate things" Zoe does in Season 2 of House of Cards, you're in luck. The 13-episode season went live on Netflix today, February 14.

Let's just hope Barack doesn't ditch Michelle to binge-watch this Valentine's Day.
