During a promotional interview for the new movie
she said, "I think George Bush is such an embarrassment to America
in the way that he doesn't take the rest of the world into consideration."
"And it all seems to be for him and his friends
to keep getting richer at the expense of a nation, at the expense
of the environment. It's like a full scale assault on the environment."

"I worry about bringing up a child in America. At
the moment there's a weird, over-patriotic atmosphere over there,
like, 'We're No. 1 and the rest of the world doesn't matter."

is in a lot of ways," she says of the U.K. "They call Tony Blair

Bill Clinton at her beach-side home in Malibu as the president
comes to the end of his tenure.

Hollywood's Democratic love affair
Mr. and Mrs. Martin are a fastidiously low-key,
paparazzi-avoiding couple. ("My husband and I have never gone
to an event together ever since the beginning of time, but for
some reason they decided recently that it meant we were breaking
up.") However, in their own distinct way, the duo are dedicated
and vocal advocates for social and political change. He has long
been an Oxfam activist, while Gwyneth's support of poverty-action
charities in America recently saw her donate $75,000 to the Food
Bank for New York City. Gwyneth is also an avid supporter of Barack
Obama. "Much as I respect Hillary Clinton — I think she's a brilliant
woman — [the Clintons are] almost like a monarchy at this point.
"I don't feel there's any lip service with [Obama].
I don't feel like he's one of those jaded politicos who say one
thing and are talking out of both sides of their mouth. I also
feel we've done such incredible damage to our reputation — and
as someone who lives outside America for half the year, I overhear
things that I wish I didn't overhear. A lot of people in the West
think that we're not very sensitive to the rest of the world,
and I think that having a president called Barack Hussein Obama
in 2008 says that we are part of the world and we don't want to
make unilateral decisions about the fate of all of us. I just
pray to God that he wins."
