So you’re a Hollywood star visiting Washington, D.C., and you need a place to kick it for the night.

What do you do?

One option: Call up Bill and Hilary over at the White House.

The executive office has released a list of 404 overnight guests who have, at one time or another during a 13-month span, slept over at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.

Seeing as how the Clintons enjoy hob-nobbing with friends in the entertainment industry, the list includes a sizeable Hollywood contingent, including heavyweights such as Steven Spielberg, Meg Ryan and her ex Dennis Quaid, Danny DeVito and wife Rhea Pearlman, Ted Danson, Quincy Jones, Walter Cronkite, and Will Smith and his wife Jada Pinkett Smith.

But here's what we wanna know: How the heck did Chevy Chase and Jimmy Buffet get invited?

The White House’s sleepover roster was released in response to attacks leveled at Hillary Clinton and her campaign for a U.S. Senate seat in New York. The first lady's foes say that she has rewarded big campaign donors with stays at the White House or at Camp David.
