If you like to hate on Gwyneth Paltrow (And really, who doesn’t? She’s terrible.), here’s something fun for you. Stylecaster has collected the 20 Most Ridiculous Things Gwyneth Paltrow Has Ever Said. It’s a freaking doozy.
On getting through the cold winter months, Harper’s Bazaar‘s Sarah Brown writes: “Having survived her 10th London winter (she got through January by assigning it “international month,” and amusing Moses and his big sister, Apple, 9, with a visiting Italian chef, Japanese anime screenings, and hand-rolled-sushi lessons, no less), Paltrow admits that her dreams of relocating the family to their recently acquired residence in Brentwood, California, are becoming ever more urgent. ‘Just to have my kids be in the sun every day—picking avocados, going for a swim,’ she says. ‘Even for two years or something, and come back when they go to senior school.’”
Just what kids want to do, pick avocados. Also: senior school?
On reminding us yet again she’s friends with Jay-Z and Beyoncé: “I don’t hold on to fear as much as I used to, because I’ve learned a lot about genuinely not caring what strangers think about me. It’s very liberating. It’s very empowering, and I’ve learned a lot of that from Jay—Shawn Carter—Z, because his approach to life is very internal. It’s a very good lesson to learn.”
On America vs. Europe: “We have great dinner parties at which everyone sits around talking about politics, history, art and literature—all this peppered with really funny jokes. But back in America, I was at a party and a girl looked at me and said, ‘Oh, my God! Are those Juicy jeans that you’re wearing?’ and I thought, I can’t stay here. I have to get back to Europe.”
On cheese from a tin: “I’d rather smoke crack than eat cheese from a tin,” the actress told a British talk show.
On the ultra-exclusive Met Gala: Paltrow strutted down the red carpet at 2013′s high-profile fashion event clad in a coral Valentino Haute Couture gown and looked downright thrilled vamping for the cameras. However, looks can apparently be deceiving. The next day, Paltrow told USA Today that she was actually having an abysmal time. “I’m never going again. It was so un-fun. It was boiling. It was too crowded. I did not enjoy it at all,” she told the newspaper.
On her kid’s diet: “They love a brown rice stir-fry, but they also love their ‘Coke of the week.’” Also: “My daughter gravitates toward fresh fruit and raw nuts but will inhale a bag of hot Cheetos at the airport. It’s all about balance.” These gems came from a GOOP newsletter, naturally.
On the sun: “We’re human beings and the sun is the sun—how can it be bad for you? I don’t think anything that’s natural can be bad for you,” Gwynnie so sagely told British Cosmopolitan.
Ugh, Gwyneth, you are THE WORST. We know you have an Oscar, but don’t act like you weren’t in “Iron Man,” too. These examples of Paltrow’s horribleness are only the beginning…there’s a ton more at StyleCaster.
