Did she really say that? Gwyneth Paltrow hosted President Obama at her home on Thursday, Oct 9 for a fundraiser and became so overwhelmed by her VIP guest’s good looks that she struggled to give a speech, reports Us weekly.
Just before handing the microphone to the President, the “Ironman” actress gushed, “You’re so handsome that I can’t speak properly.”

Paltrow hosted a Democratic National Committee fundraiser in her backyard for the President 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 talked about equal pay which is, “very important to me as a working mother.”
The President thanked his hostess and her children, Apple, 10, and Moses, 8, for letting him “crash your house” and used the kids as an example of why the Ebola crisis in Africa must be solved.

"I want to assure everybody that the likelihood of an epidemic here in the United States is extraordinarily small," the President said. "But there's a humanitarian crisis that's happening right now in West Africa where children not much older, and in some cases younger than Apple and Moses, are dying on the streets alone."
This is the second fundraiser Paltrow has hosted for Obama. After the backyard shindig she then hosted an exclusive dinner for the President and 50 supporters where tickets were said to cost up to $32,000.
