'You’re So Handsome...': Gwyneth Smitten While Hosting Obama at Her Home
“You’re so handsome that I can’t speak properly.”
This is what actress Gwyneth Paltrow reportedly said to President Obama at last night's fundraiser, which she hosted at her home.
Paltrow hosted a DNC fundraiser in her backyard for Obama and around 200 others, including Julia Roberts and Bradley Whitford.
She described herself as one of Obama’s “biggest fans, if not the biggest,” and praised him for being an “incredible role model.”
She also touted the president's work on equal pay which is, “very important to me as a working mother.”
According to a Forbes estimate, Paltrow earns $19 million a year.
Paltrow also lamented the fact that the president cannot be given "all of the power that he needs to pass the things that he needs to pass."
After the backyard reception, Paltrow hosted a more exclusive dinner with Obama and about 50 others, where tickets were reported to cost $32,000.
While Hollywood seems firmly in Obama's corner, other Democrats are striking a different tone.
Alison Lundergan Grimes, running against Sen. Mitch McConnell in Kentucky, argued the election "is not about the president" and described herself as a "Clinton Democrat through and through."
Grimes had simply been asked whether she had voted for the president in 2008 and 2012.
