Gwyneth Paltrow, recently separated from her husband, thinks President Obama is irresistible.
“You’re so handsome that I can’t speak properly,” she cooed to the commander in chief last night during a DNC fundraiser at her home in the Brentwood section of Los Angeles. Obama was careful not to sound too excited:
“I want to thank Gwyneth and Apple and Moses for letting us crash your house,” he said.
Apple and Moses are the names she gave her children.
“I am one of your biggest fans, if not the biggest,” she purred during her remarks.
She showed both the love and money. According to the DNC, there were to be 200 supporters at a reception and 50 at a dinner, with tickets for the reception starting at $1,000 and for the dinner at $15,000.
Gwyneth demanded more power for Obama.
“It would be wonderful if we were able to give this man all of the power that he needs to pass the things that he needs to pass,” she said. At least she’s talking about turning Congress blue, though I’m sure she’s down with Obama’s penchant for ruling by fiat too.
Paltrow cited sustainable energy efforts as well as Obama’s push for equal pay, which she called, “Very important to me as a working mother.”
Just your average working mom, trying to get some time for Apple and Moses, and maybe a little extra money to pay the house staff.
