You know you're famous when you get a birthday card from Barack Obama!

Zooey Deschanel received a very special message from the US President last week, wishing her a happy birthday and thanking her for the work she's been doing with the White House to encourage young women to make a difference in their communities.

The New Girl star tweeted a photo of the letter, which read:

"Michelle and I send our warmest wishes for a happy birthday. As you celebrate this special occasion with your family and friends, please know I am grateful for all you have done to encourage and support young women who are making a difference across our country.

"I hope your day is filled with love and laughter, and I wish you all the best for good health and happiness in the year ahead."

Zooey shares her January 9 birthday with the First Lady, Michelle Obama, and she joked on Twitter that she was disappointed the President had chosen to go to his wife's birthday party instead of hers.

"It's okay. I get it. I would go to Michelle Obama's birthday instead of mine, too," she wrote.
