Star-crossed: George W. Bush, Ellen DeGeneres suite mates for Cowboys-Packers

You never know who will be in Jerry Jones’ suite at a Dallas Cowboys’ game but Sunday’s guest might take the cake.

Former President George W. Bush and wife Laura were sitting next to Ellen DeGeneres and wife Portia de Rossi watching the Cowboys take on the Green Bay Packers at AT&T Stadium.

The president and entertainer were shown sitting side by side several times during the FOX broadcast and fans immediately started posting screen grabs of the moment. Bush at one point after the national anthem got a big laugh from the comedian.

Another famous guest was former NASCAR driver Danica Patrick, who is dating Packers’ quarterback Aaron Rodgers.

All the star wattage did not bring the Cowboys any luck, however. The Packers built a 31-3 lead before winning 34-24.
