The 42-year-old actress held a fundraiser for the Democratic National Committee at her Los Angeles home on Thursday, and was starstruck by the president's attendance. Paltrow told Obama she is one of his "biggest fans, if not the biggest," and voiced her support for his equal pay legislation.
"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 declared before gushing, "You're so handsome that I can't speak properly."
Paltrow called equal pay legislation "very important" to her as "a working mother," causing many to recall her comments on working mothers in March. The actress was heavily criticized after telling E! an office job must be "easy" for parents versus being in movies.
"I think it's different when you have an office job, because it's routine," the star opined. "When you're shooting a movie ... Then you work 14 hours a day and that part of it is very difficult. I think to have a regular job and be a mom is not as, of course there are challenges, but it's not like being on set."
Paltrow is mother to 10-year-old daughter Apple and 8-year-old son Moses with ex-husband Chris Martin.
