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.
