Senator Barack Obama isn't the only one in his family who's a fan of Will Smith -- his wife Michelle names the A-lister as her celebrity crush.

"I think it's the ears," she tells Entertainment Tonight. "I think it's the ears. I'm drawn to the ears. Obviously!"

The Illinois senator had previously as his pick to play him in a film.

"Will and I have talked about this because he has the ears!" he has said.

While the 46-year-old presidential hopeful draws comparisons to a Hollywood star, his wife is being linked to a former First Lady for her elegant style and grace -- Jackie O.

"It's an honor," Michelle says. "She was not just beautiful and stylish, but she was smart and compassionate. As a mother you just hope that what you do will lead to healthy sensible, caring, compassionate kids. And Jackie O did that. And she did it with style. And if I can come close, then that's a real feat."

These days, Michelle considers it a feat if the family, which includes daughters Malia, 9, and Sasha, 6, can sit down for dinner.

"Having a meal where you're sitting down with a plate and a fork and a knife and not just eating off your lap in the car!" she says.
