Gwyneth Paltrow, environmental advocate, took a 10-second car ride to a dinner

This is one of my new favorite Gwyneth Paltrow stories. I like this one even more than all of the stories about how constipated Dame Goop is (true story). Last Friday, Gwyneth and Kristen Stewart were part of a large A-list group gathered in LA for the premiere of Paul McCartney’s new music video for “My Valentine”. I covered some photos from the event here – most of the girls wore Stella McCartney, to hilariously disastrous results. Gwyneth was actually one of the best-dressed girls at the event, in my opinion. In this post, I’m including photos of Goop at the event, and in the car after the event. So, here’s the funny story: Gwyneth took a car service from the “My Valentine” party to the post-party dinner. It’s only shocking when you realize that the dinner was held .06 miles away, four doors down from the party. It was a ten-second car ride.

Just in time for Earth Week, Gwyneth Paltrow took a 10-second car ride from the Stella McCartney party to the following dinner in LA on Friday. The event at McCartney’s West Hollywood boutique celebrated the video directorial debut of her dad, Sir Paul McCartney, for his new single, “My Valentine.” A-list Hollywood turned out, including Orlando Bloom and Miranda Kerr, Jane Fonda and Amy Smart.

Most guests later walked four doors down for the dinner at Madeo restaurant on Beverly Boulevard. Our spy said, “It’s a short walk. Also at the dinner was Gwyneth [who has starred in green public- service announcements] with husband Chris Martin — except they left the party in a gas-guzzling Town Car, were chauffeured a few feet and got out at the restaurant that was pretty much next door to the party.”

According to Mapquest, the McCartney boutique (at 8823 Beverly) and Madeo (8897 Beverly) are 0.06 miles apart, a 10-second drive. Paltrow’s rep didn’t get back to us.

Part of me believes this story wholeheartedly, simply because Gwyneth doesn’t want to ever be in a position where she has to interact with peasants, even if it’s just walking down the block. She might run into one of the unwashed masses! How would she ever handle it? Another part of me – the part of me that’s been giving Kristen Stewart the benefit of the doubt lately – wonders if Gwyneth even realized that the dinner was being held at a venue within walking distance, you know? She might not have realized it. I hate myself a little for giving her the benefit of the doubt. We must always assume the worst about Dame Goop, because she so often meets those expectations.

*claps hands at servant*

    Y she not promoting tha avengers movie I thought she was part of it

  2. Birdix says:

    Looks like she’s adopted a Middletonesque devotion to the orange fake tan

  3. Rhea says:

    Oh dear, Gwen… sometimes I love her for simply staying in her bubble world… ;)

  4. paola says:

    AHAHAH!!! I bet she didn’t know the venue was just down the block.. but this story has made my day already!!

  5. brin says:

    She doesn’t strike me as the practice what she preaches type.

  6. Agnes says:

    muahahaha! she would never walk half a block. peasants might be looking at her. the sidewalk might not be clean. there might not be any microbiotic restaurants on the way. it’s quite silly to expect her to lower herself in such a way.

  7. OlsenTriplet says:

    Do as I say, not as I do. Hollywood activism 101.

  8. helvetica says:

    Oh gwyneth, queen of hypocrite.

    Said we should healthy organic food, yet she promotes frozen food
    Sais she’s “green”, yet she used car for 10secs rather than move her ass and walk

  9. lucy2 says:

    If you didn’t know it was that close, can you imagine how stupid you’d feel to get in a car, roll a few feet down the street, and get out again? Too funny.

    Whatever her reasoning for doing so, I’m sure it had something to do with Mario Batali and organic enemas.

  10. marie says:

    how dare you question the way of the Goop.. haha, this woman entertains me to no end..

  11. MrsBarneyStinson says:

    I totally believe this story. Goop is such a hypocrite!

  12. Fyofeelings says:

    Another case of goop being goopy

  13. TheOriginalKitten says:

    Ha, how effin’ lazy can you get?

  14. Zelda says:

    I did this once during a change-venue event in a neighbourhood I’d never been to. Everyone insisted the next spot was very close, but I was wearing very high heels and ignored them.
    A block and a half later, I got out of the taxi trying not to look embarassed, and to ignore the smirks of the friends who had managed to arrive before me…

  15. Jacq says:

    I love her, but is Amy Smart really A-list?!

  16. Rhiley says:

    Oh, I think she did know, and I wonder if because she was with Chris Martin that is why they took the car. For some reason these two boobs don’t ever want to appear as a match set, and so after however many years they have been married, they still refuse to have their picture take together. I think it is Chris Martin who really works to avoid having his picture taken by the paps because, well, you know, he is a big time pretentious “rock star.” Honestly though two big egos together just make one really big ego so who knows.

  17. Annaloo says:

    This embodies a lot of why I get frustrated with my fellow left-leaning friends…This whole “do as I say, not as I do” business. A 10 second car ride is nothing compared to the jet fuel and mindless overpriced consumption this piece of over-privileged poop lords over.

  18. Bobby sue says:

    I used to absolutely love and idolize this woman as an actress. Now, I just hate how much about her GOOPY personality and life-style she force-feeds down our throats. I wish I could go back to admiring her and *wondering* about her life as opposed to knowing things I just don’t want to know!

    Also, her face looks so pinched now. Not like plastic surgery pinched but severe-attitude pinched. Everything has thinned out and become so austere. Nose looks pointy, lips are thin and pursed, face is sharp and not soft. I’m older than her by a bit and I still have a softness to my face because I’m not an up-tight anus!
    Very disappointed by Emma :-(

  19. ladybert62 says:

    Probably she could not walk that far in her 15 inch heel-shoes-boots!

  20. Sumodo1 says:

    The only thing that would make this story even better is if Goop put the restaurant dinner rolls in her purse and stole some Sweet’n'Low for good measure.

  21. Leticia says:

    I’m not a Goop hater. But I do hate the hypocrisy of the elites, who fly on private jets, while encouraging the rest of us to use mass transit.

  22. Bad Gal Addiction says:

    Her boots were just not made for walking on concrete, duh! Only soft, red carpets.

  23. keri says:

    I don’t know…the part where she took a 10 second car ride…totally believable…the part where her husband was with her….NOT. Seems he steers pretty clear of her.

  24. Dee Cee says:

    It’s more important she knows how to enhance and improve the right sorts of people and bravely shared it..

  25. zinjojo says: indeed!

  26. Lem says:

    So… I got in the car… This doesn’t even cover one end of my front yard to the other.

  27. Incredulous says:

    Shank’s mare is for poor people.

  28. stinky says:

    doing coke, making calls, changing undies, shag-tastic antics? she could have reasons for needing to take the car along…. who knows.

  29. Jayna says:

    She probably had no idea it was that close. And, truthfully, when I have worn really high, uncomfortable shoes to a party and standing a lot, walking to my car killed me every single step.

  30. Saul says:

    Glorious Gwyneth in all her ridiculousness. Gotta love her for that.

  31. TXCinderella says:

    Only peasants would walk four doors down.

  32. Reece says:

    I’m going with didn’t know it was down the street. She’s too busy having meaningful conversations with the British party-goers to google map a restaurant. Or you know…look around.
    Too bad Ryan Gosling wasn’t there to save her from herself.

  33. Eener says:

    Was she thinking of the environment when she put that tango orange mess on her face, what about when it washes down the drain and pollutes us all… Oh sorry, I forgot she has her water flown in from Fiji… never mind…

  34. e.non says:

    she’s an l.a. girl — and she most certainly knows about madeo.

  35. sup says:

    she’s disgusting. the hypocrisy, condescending attitude and that pretentious grin seriously irks me for some reason.

  36. Kim says:

    Most celebs go overboard with being green because they have a guilty conscious of how big their houses are and how much water, electricity, gas etc they use.

    They also fly private and get driven in huge gas guzzling suvs. Not to mention how much energy is used on film sets – all those lights etc.

    NO celebrity has right to voice to others they arent environmentally concious because there isnt much that uses as much energy as making a movie.

    Ive always thought a great documentary would be on how much energy is use to make 1 block buster film. The lights, electrical, fans, heaters, sound machines, flying stars all around on private planes for press conferences etc etc.

    Not to mention the amount of money spent when there are starving kids/people. The money it takes to make 1 blockbuster film could feed thousands if not millions of kids everyday. Why are no celebs talking about this?? People would be shocked and stars would be embarrassed!

  37. La.uren says:

    Does Goop spend any time with her children? Or her husband? Goopy looks so pumpkinish & plastic..the complete anthethesis of natural beauty.

  38. lexiparr4 says:

    I bet she was building a wood burning pizza oven in the backseat..*sulks and stares at regular indoor oven*

  39. Miz says:

    It’s her shoes. Try wearing 6 inch heels for any length of time and then try walking in them on cement. I once saw an A lister wearing flats into an interview on a late night show. On the show, she came out in 6 inch heels. Those shoes aren’t made for walking!

    mr. knightley would have scolded her for sure.
