Gwyneth Paltrow Gushes Over 'Handsome' Barack Obama

We all get a little starstruck from time to time, and we're pleased to see that Gwyneth Paltrow is no different.


The Oscar-winning actress came over all coy when the President of the United States attended one of her Democrat fundraisers.

Normally people get a little starstruck when they bump into each other on a tube or on the high street, but not Gwyneth. Her moment came while Barack Obama was in her back garden. Yup, you read correctly!

Obama was the guest of honour at the Paltrow's fundraiser, held at her home in Los Angeles, according to The Independent.

As she introduced the president, the Sliding Doors actress said it was a "profound honour" to welcome him to her home. She added: "I am one of your biggest fans, if not the biggest. You're so handsome that I can't speak properly."

High praise indeed!


Gwyneth's children Apple and Moses were among the 200 people who attended the fundraiser. And Gwyneth's praise continued as she called Obama an "incredible role model", adding that she'd been a fan since his campaign started back in 2008.

When he stood up to speak, Obama joked: "I'm taking her (Gwyneth) to the next event."

Tickets for the reception part of the fundraiser started at $1,000, but the 50 dinner seats went for $15,000 a pop.

Reports suggest Apple and Moses weren't quite as starstruck and by the end of Obama's speech, they were reportedly nodding off.
