Gwyneth and Chris Martin Arrive in NYC For Weinstein's $35,800-Per-Person Obama Fundraiser

Gwyneth Paltrow [1], Chris Martin [2], and their kids, Apple and Moses, touched down in Manhattan via helicopter yesterday. The couple arrived just in time to get ready for the evening's high-profile Barack Obama fundraiser hosted by Harvey Weinstein [3] at his house. The event reportedly cost up to $35,800 a head to attend, and the president made a special trip to the city to mingle with some of his A-list supporters, which included not just Gwyneth, Chris, and Harvey, but also Jimmy Fallon [4], Alicia Keys [5], Anna Wintour, and Vera Wang. Gwyneth recently revealed in her September Elle magazine cover interview that Chris Martin doesn't want fans seeing them as a "lame famous couple" [6], which is why the two keep their relationship so private. So most of the time Gwyneth takes on her A-list events solo, but this time around British Chris came along to throw his support behind Obama.
