Gwyneth Paltrow to host Obama fundraiser in her Hollywood home

Gwyneth Paltrow, or at the very least, the withered husk that was once the Oscar-winning actress, remains one of President Barack Obama's strongest supporters, even while the rest of Hollywood and America has soured on his multiple failures. To show that support, the actress is opening her home to the President and the Democratic party on October 9 for a fundraiser, with the Democratic National Committee raking in the dough.

According to an invitation by the DNC obtained by The Hollywood Reporter, President Obama will attend a reception at the actress' home, followed by an intimate dinner during which he will answer questions from guests.

In case you're hoping to attend to rub shoulders with Hollywood's elite or ask the President a questions about Benghazi, know that it will cost you. Tickets to the event run between $1,000 and $32,400 (apparently that extra $400 is really necessary). The message is clear: no riff-raff from the middle class allowed.

It is not unusual for Obama to go to Hollywood looking for money to fund Democratic candidates and the general wussification of our once great country. However, President Obama has already held what was billed as his final Hollywood fundraiser of the year in July, when he held events at the home of Shonda Rhimes (creator of Grey's Anatomy and Scandal), as well as the home of Michael Rapino, owner of Live Nation and Ticketmaster.
