Behind the Scenes of Gwyneth Paltrow’s Obama Fundraiser: Yelling and Drinking Wine at 10am

Controlling Gwyneth?
Gwyneth Paltrow allegedly controls Chris Martin's dating schedule.
This past Thursday, Gwyneth Paltrow invited a “handsome” new man into her home who makes Chris Martin pale in comparison.

That man, as we know, is President Barack Obama. Gwyneth hosted a fundraiser at her Brentwood abode with the President in attendance – unfortunately, the event included a lot of yelling and day drinking behind the scenes.

According to a source, the Goopfounder “was extremely unpleasant all day.”

First strike? Gwyneth channeled her stress into yelling at the workers: “She was snappy with the people that were there and even yelled at one of the workers for not doing the table placements correctly. That was in the beginning of the day so everyone stayed clear of her from that point on, as we were all instructed to do,” revealed the source.

Second and third strikes? Gwyneth’s phone manners and some early morning boozing:

She was walking around on her phone and talking really loud to friends, letting everyone know that the president was coming to her house, as if everyone didn’t know already. She kept saying that she was pissed off because everything was running behind schedule…At around 10am, she started drinking wine and she was smoking cigarettes all day.

Really, Gwyneth? Wine and chain smoking at 10am? However, knowing how deeply concerned the actress is with her health, I’m inclined to believe that this is an exaggeration.

What’s certain is that in an ideal Goop world, the President would be Gwyneth’s rebound man. Once the fundraiser was in motion, the Iron Man star gushed, “You’re so handsome that I can’t speak properly.”

Obama later thanked his hostess for “letting us crash at your house” and joked, “I promised that I would put everything back.” We’re assuming that Gwyneth would let him off the hook either way.
