Only it wasn’t the type of paparazzi fiasco you might expect something like that to occur at, but rather, Wednesday’s Hanukkah reception at the White House, which was open to reporters. When one of them, Josh Lederman of the AP, tried to snap a shot of the 42-year-old A-lister, her security guard “put his hand over the reporter's cellphone,” according to the White House press pool.
Lederman tweeted the blurry shot he took — of a passing Paltrow in a black dress — with the hashtags: “#NotOK #PublicEvent”

The ardent Obama supporter Paltrow and an estimated 550 people were at the holiday event in the nation’s capital, where President Barack Obama lit the menorah and proclaimed he’s Jewish “in his soul.”
