US actress Gwyneth Paltrow held a Democratic National Committee fundraiser at her home in Brentwood, California, on Thursday (Oct 9) which was attended, among others, by US president Barack Obama.

E! Online reported that while Paltrow, 42, was making a speech for the attendees, among whom were her children, she spoke of the president's sustainable energy efforts as well as his push for equal pay.

She then turned the microphone over to him and gushed, "...you're so handsome that I can't speak properly".
