Gwyneth Paltrow has won numerous awards for her acting, but speaking apparently came with some difficulty Thursday with President Barack Obama standing beside her.
You’re so handsome that I can’t speak properly,’ the actress, singer and food writer gushed after introducing Obama to several hundred supporters seated on white fold-out chairs in the lush backyard of her home in the movie star haven of Brentwood, a neighborhood in Los Angeles.
In a not-so-subtle reference to her ‘conscious uncoupling’ earlier this year from husband Chris Martin, Paltrow said it was a ‘profound honor’ to have Obama in the home she shares with Apple and Moses, her two children with the Coldplay lead vocalist.
Paltrow hosted a reception and dinner benefiting the Democratic Party that marked the start of a three-day, California fundraising swing for Obama.
He is scheduled to attend three other Democratic National Committee fundraisers in Los Angeles and San Francisco before returning to Washington on Saturday.
Tickets to the reception at Paltrow’s home started at $1,000, while dinner tickets cost a minimum of $15,000.
Actors Julia Roberts and Bradley Whitford were among those attending.
In a brief introduction punctuated by ‘ums,’ Paltrow declared herself to be one of Obama’s biggest fans and said he’s an ‘incredible role model.’
