(CNN) —  

Oscar-winning actress Gwyneth Paltrow can’t get enough of her commander-in-chief.

Hosting a fundraiser for President Barack Obama at her Los Angeles home on Thursday, Paltrow revealed that she is in fact the President’s “biggest” fan – and it’s not just because of his policies.

“You’re so handsome that I can’t speak properly,” Paltrow said before turning the mic over to Obama, according to a White House pool report.

Before that speechlessness overtook her, Paltrow managed to praise the President’s efforts to combat climate change and his push for equal pay, which the Oscar-winner called “very important to me as a working mother.”

“I am one of your biggest fans, if not the biggest,” Paltrow said.

When Obama spoke, he joked about the handsome remark: “I’m taking her to the next event.”

About 200 supporters spent at least $1,000 each to attend the Democratic fundraiser, with 50 dropping at least $15,000 to attend a dinner with the President.

Paltrow wasn’t the only Oscar-winner in the crowd, with Julia Roberts also spotted at the fundraiser, though there’s no word yet on whether she was as equally dazzled by the President.
