192: Scots snapper puts Paltrow in the picture.

HOLLYWOOD star Gwyneth Paltrow has made no secret of her dislike for British men - but that didn't stop her falling for a Scottish photographer.

Glaswegian Martin Grimes, who is now based in Tinseltown, has made many friends in showbiz circles.

He has enjoyed coffee with Matthew Perry and taken Chris Evans and his young wife Billie Piper shopping for cars - and now the 38-year-old snapper has cheekily asked Gwyneth out on a date after she stopped her car to chastise him.

She revealed the amazing incident in an interview with NBC chat show host Carson Daly. She said: "I had a paparazzi who hit on me - it was really bizarre.

"I was in LA, where the paparazzi chase me in cars all the time. It's horrible and they don't let up. Finally, I pulled over, this guy pulled over behind me and I backed up and asked him to roll down his window. I said `are you really going to follow me all day?'.

"I was like, `I'm a single woman and it's scary to be followed. I know you're trying to get your picture, but I really don't like it'.

"He was like, `I'll just get your picture and go'. Then he took my picture, gave me his card and wanted to go have a coffee with me.

"This is so awful, but he was kind of cute - and I I thought about it, just for the story value of it. Like, this could be a good movie!"

But Martin is prepared to bodyswerve Gwyneth to spend time with his dream date - his grandmother. He said: "I can't think of anything better than enjoying a cup of tea with my old Nana in Glasgow. That's so much better than meeting celebrities."
