Gwyneth Paltrow: ‘It would be wonderful if we could give Obama all of the power that he needs’

Actress Gwyneth Paltrow lavished praise on President Barack Obama Thursday night during a Democratic National Committee fundraiser that took place at her Los Angeles home.

Speaking at the event, which had tickets starting at a minimum of $1,000 for the reception and $15,000 for the dinner, Paltrow introduced the president by saying, “I am one of your biggest fans, if not the biggest.”

The famous actress, joined by her children, continued to shower Obama with compliments.

According to the White House pool report, she said: 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.

Paltrow called the president’s push for equal pay “very important to me as a working mother.”

At the conclusion of her introduction, she turned the microphone over to Obama, telling him, “You’re so handsome that I can’t speak properly.”
