Is Hillary Clinton watching the killing of Osama bin Laden or a Hollywood blockbuster? Just looking at her face, you might not know.

"That's the way I usually look when my husband drags me to an action movie," she said during an interview with NBC's Brian Williams to be aired on Wednesday. Clinton was referring to a now-famous photo depicting Obama and his advisers in the White House Situation Room, watching the raid on bin Laden's compound in Pakistan that resulted in his death, which took place a year ago this week.

"It was just an extraordinary experience and a great privilege to be part of," Clinton said.

Obama recalled that the photo was taken at a harrowing part of the mission, when the helicopter transporting the Navy SEALs to bin Laden's compound was having problems.

"There's silence, at this point, inside the room," he said.
