Gwyneth Paltrow gets bashfully flirtatious with Barack Obama

14 October 2014, 06:59

Los Angeles - Gwyneth Paltrow "could hardly speak" in front of the "handsome" Barack Obama.

The Glee actress admitted to the President of the United States that she was completely awestruck by his good looks, as she attempted to hand him a microphone at a Democratic Fundraiser on Thursday.

According to the Daily Mail, the 42-year-old blonde beauty told President Barack Obama: "You're so handsome I can hardly speak properly. I am one of your biggest fans, if not the biggest."

Gwyneth was flirting with the President in front of a 200-strong audience who had paid a reported $25 000 to attend the event, which took place in the actress' LA mansion.

Barack later thanked Gwyneth and her two young children - Apple, 10, and Moses, eight - for their hospitality as he joked: "Thanks for letting us crash your house."

The President spoke at great length about the ebola crisis, as he told the crowd: "I want to assure everybody that the likelihood of an epidemic here in the United States is extraordinarily small.

"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."
