Even though she is Gwyneth Paltrow, Oscar-winner, lifestyle website impresario, and giver of unique children's names, she still gets flustered. Who sends the Goopster into a giggling schoolgirl tizzy? None other than Commander-in-Chief Barack Obama.
Paltrow recently hosted a fundraiser for Obama at her home in Brentwood, California. When it came time for her to shake the President's hand, she was reduced to tween-meeting-Harry-Styles status.
It's interesting to note that when the President commented on a woman's looks, he had to issue an apology. When a woman commented on his looks, the media covers it objectively and without the aim of admission of wrongdoing.
Paltrow managed to get it together enough to thank Obama for his efforts to close the gender-wage gap. She also added that it was a "profound honor" to have the President in her home.
