Gwyneth Paltrow ‘has gone from pretentious to unbearable’, people hate her

I want to marry this Star Magazine cover and have its snobby, elitist Goop-babies. Yes, after blanketing every media outlet for MONTHS to promote her cookbook, her movie, her lifestyle and her beauty, the tabloids have finally reached their tipping point. I’m not saying that Star Magazine is a harbinger of some kind of major Anti-Goop Movement, but I think the anti-Goopsters amongst us deserve to have our kind of stories told in the media. Star hasn’t released much of the cover story yet, so this should just serve as a preview:

*Apparently, producers don’t want to work with Gwyneth anymore. An insider claims, “Gwyneth has annoyed people to the point where no one wants to deal with her anymore. She has always been pretentious, but over the past few years she has gone from pretentious to unbearable.”

*Everybody in Hollywood hates her: “Madonna wants nothing to do with her, Reese Witherspoon ignores her, Kate Hudson thinks she’s elitist (and Kate bashes Gwyneth to their friends), Jennifer Garner thinks she’s like a high school mean girl, and Jennifer Lopez has no patience for the ‘whiny little rich girl.’”

*Even Chris Martin wants Gwyneth to tone it down, and he’s pissed that she talked about the miscarriage. Chris is also concerned that Gwyneth’s “oversharing problem” has “become a problem for her kids’ school” – because the school expressly forbid Gwyneth from writing about them in a Goop-letter.

*Gwyneth is “obsessed with getting Angelina to like her because she knows Angelina has class and power.”

*Insider quote: “She thinks she is untouchable and can say whatever she wants without consequences. Her mouth is finally getting her into trouble, and it’s long overdue.”

*Reese in particular is still pissed off because Gwyneth said something bitchy about her in a 2006 interview (Gwyneth wondered aloud why Reese did “stupid romantic comedies” and now an insider says: “Reese could care less about what Gwyneth’s opinion of her is. She joked about how the woman who made Shallow Hal really has no place giving career advice to anyone else.”

For what it’s worth, Gossip Cop got a denial from Goop’s rep, but it’s the kind of Mean Girl-denial that is totally Goop – the rep says Goop is “good friends” with Reese and Kate and merely “acquaintances” with Jennifer Lopez. No mention of Madonna or Jennifer Garner or Angelina, huh?

Meanwhile, I missed this new Goop interview last week – she was promoting Boss Jour Pour Femme, the new Hugo Boss fragrance that she now represents. You can read the full piece here at WWD – there are some ass-kissy quotes from the Hugo Boss people, like: “Gwyneth Paltrow embodies hard work, femininity and sophistication. She is a woman that has so many different roles, each and every day. From being an actor to being a mother, a writer, a businesswoman…” GMAFB. But let’s hear what Gwyneth has to say about her super-difficult life and how she’s so inspirational:

“I have had a really good experience working for Boss, and I always say this, but it really is such a perfect job when you have kids. I can only really do one film a year now because of my family and how it all works out, so it’s so nice for me to be able to work for a great company and, you know, I’m going to Spain next week for two days so I still get to travel and meet really interesting people and have a work interaction. But it’s not like I am out of the house for three months,” added Paltrow at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel here ahead of the official launch in Valencia, Spain, this week.

Paltrow added that she is something of a collector of fragrances. “I am one of those people who have a whole closet full of perfume. I love it; I have always loved it and have always had a wardrobe full of scent,” she said, admitting to having at least a hundred in her possession.

“I think that Jour is the perfect name for it — it’s very uplifting,” she said of the new scent. And uplifting may be just what she needs given her regular morning routine. “I wake up at 7 a.m., I get [the kids] fed, and I get them dressed in their uniforms, any bits of homework are finished,” Paltrow explained. “I take them to school. She [Apple, now 9] gets dropped off at 8:25 a.m., and he [Moses, now 7] gets dropped off at 8:45 a.m., so we have a croissant together in his school dining room and we do reading together. Then I go home and I work for one hour on all the e-mails that come in overnight from L.A. Then I exercise from about 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. Then I work on Goop [the digital media and e-commerce company she founded] pretty much the rest of the day until I pick up my kids and then they have various activities.”

[From WWD]

Um, is it just me or do her kids get to go to school really late in the morning? And she’s basically saying that she “works” about three hours a day. Did you catch that? She spends an hour doing emails and looking at cat videos in the morning, then it’s off for her daily 2-hour workout… and though she doesn’t include it, I’m assuming there’s about a half-hour for showering and primping. And then 12:30-ish to 2:30-ish she “works” on Goop (every day?!) and then she goes and picks up her kids. That’s it. Her life is super-busy, y’all. I wonder what would happen to Gwyneth if she was dropped into the average working mother’s life for just one day? We would never hear the f—king end of it, I can tell you that much.

    Even though I think majority or most of the story is fake, the cover is hilarious. Especially with the ‘quotes’ from Ben Affleck’s wife, Ben Affleck’s ex-fiance and Pitts’s fiance .

    • LadyMTL says:

      What makes me laugh is the “whiny rick girl” comment because come on, they’re all rich girls.

      • Meredith says:

        I am not a huge J-Lo fan but to be honest, she did come up from very humble beginnings. No matter how much of a b**ch she may be called now, she did hustle to get there.

      • Cameron says:

        I’m from the same section of the Bronx as Jlo and it’s not the Upper east side of Manhattan or Brentwood section of LA. So, JlO gets a pass in my book. I love Jlo just because she called GOOP out 20 years ago.. “she’s famous by association with Brad Pitt”. Brad pretty much said the same thing. Look who she befriends? It’s always the “it girl” at the time.. Wynonna Ryder, Reese W. , Cameron Diaz, Madonna,
        Beyonce.. Women whom she can gain some press. Remember when she was Claire Danes mentor? When Claire was the “it” teenager.. She’s so full of it. I wouldn’t put it pass her to befriend Selena, Kristen or
        Miley next for some press. Remember, she’s the one who hooked up Jake and Taylor. Why? Because Taylor was the hottest selling female artist.

      • V4Real says:

        But Gwyn came from money while the others had to work hard to become a part of that elite group.

        Regardless if this is true or not, it’s funny as hell. But I had been saying for some time now that even people in the industry didn’t like Gwyn. I also told how people on the set of IM2 couldn’t stand being around Gwyn and that she was really mean to ScarJo. Not that ScarJo’s a prize but they said she was very easy to work with. Whedon didn’t want Gwyn in The Avengers, it was RDJ that fought for her to have that scene. Truth be told he probably secretly can’t stand this pretentious beyotch either.

        Now I believe that blind item about Gwyn trying to get RDJ, Sir Ben, Guy Pearce and Don Cheadle to try her Gluten free food and they spit it out behind her back. :)

      • flan says:

        I heard that of all the Avengers, ScarJo took the fighting training most seriously.

        She’s far ahead of Goop in my book.

      • Kim says:

        LOL! Good point. Oh shes just Jenny from the block who drives a Bentley, drips in diamonds, owns 10 houses, 20 fur coats, etc. haha!

      • RHONYC says:

        @ V4Real

        “elite group”?

        she’s a wacktress, not a Senator or a Royal.
        nothing ‘elite’ about being in Hollyweird in my book. jussayin. :roll:

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        I think V4Real just meant “elite” as in “A-List” and that some people perceive A-List actors as “special”. When you’re an A-List celebrity, no matter how unfair it seems, you get certain privileges that the rest of us average shlubs don’t get.

        But yeah, I agree, they’re just actors, not like they’re saving the world.

      • lucy2 says:

        Cameron, that’s very interesting. It definitely does seem like she has a pattern of attaching herself to someone doing well at the moment, and then dropping them when someone else comes along.
        Madonna did that to an extent too, a while back.

      • testington` says:

        it is Jennifer Lopez, she herself is one of the whiniest most demanding stars….so of course the quote is probably true because people like that (Mariah is the queen of this) always think they have it the hardest and anybody else who complains is whiny because their little problems couldn’t measure up to the huge problems Jennifer Lopez has to deal with.

    • e.non says:

      this…. i love that peasants across the land will be seeing this cover at their checkout lane…

      • erika says:

        love that image!

        i foresee altars being created at grocery check out lanes, .99 cent candles and spaghetti ‘incense’ lit from plastic cigarette lighters, pine tree shaped and scented ‘new car’ hanging tags and NON-organic fruits and canned vegetables as ‘offerings’ to the Goddess of Pretentious Bitch Gwyneth

        …and just to piss off the Goddess, peasants shall scoot their carts forward thru the checkout lane full of sugar laden, bad carb, packaged foods while snotty, sticky and screaming kids cling to their mother’s legs and there at the altar they shall consume endless candy bars off the racks…

        All hail Goddess Goop! All mighty Bitch!

      • ViktoryGin says:

        Hilarious! I think I would just prefer to burn her image in effigy.

    • Esmom says:

      I call BS, too. Although I think the part about her and Reese’s bitch fight is hilarious.

      • Meredith says:

        Yes, the Shallow Hal-career advise remark is priceless. Actually with the exception of Jolie, none of the “cover girls” careers is going very well. Although I have enjoyed many of Garner’s and Reese’s movies in the past, they’re not hot properties anymore.

      • flan says:

        In the nineties, JLo was about the only artist who didn’t say everyone in the business was “amazing”, but threw shade left and right at people.

        Paltrow was a favorite target, even Puff Daddy weighed in for some reason. Was all good fun.

    • Amy Tennant says:

      I was about to say something like this–some men in common!
      I may actually have to break down and buy this magazine.

    • JenD says:

      I think the cover is hilarious bc they chose her with a “mean girl” look on her face.

      • Lauren says:

        Goopy is an elitist mean girl. Goops Mum Blythe Danner is so warm & could her daughter be so downright ignorant & offensive? Goops hubby Chris must be dreadfully embarrassed. My husband is British, and the Brits prefer to not overshare & suffer in quiet desperation.

    • judyjjudyjudy says:

      I think it is funny, too. The only way Hollywood decision makers would turn on her is if her films didn’t make money. Lol.

    • Rice says:

      Indeed. I usually take tabloid stories with a truckload of salt, but I find Ms Paltrow highly annoying. She always seems to give the most ridiculous tips and advice that is inconceivable, and often expensive, for the average woman. And what’s worse is that she feels that she’s helping people.

  2. Jaded says:

    She is the most vapid creature on the planet, totally self-absorbed and utterly useless.

  3. Jackie Jormp Jomp (formerly Zelda) says:

    She looks really young in that photo. Not necessarily a great picture, but she looks really young.

  4. CS says:

    Schools usually start at 9 o’clock here.

  5. mimifarrow says:

    But a gluten and dairy free croissant, right?

  6. Itsjustblanche. says:

    I’m sure she’s loathed by many in her business but I bet this story is mostly BS. Mostly. ;-)

  7. Spooks says:

    Off topic, but why does everybody hate Chris Martin? Is it just because he married her? Because, he comes across as really humble, funny and self-deprecating in interviews.

    • Jackie Jormp Jomp (formerly Zelda) says:

      If I had to venture a guess, I’d say it’s because he’s in Coldplay.

      But I loved his cameo on Extras, so he won me over.

    • Bored suburbanhousewife says:

      Commenters on some recent Goop posts have suggested that far from being embarrassed by her attention seeking over sharing, he is complicit in it. However, he is smart enought to realize that she recently has way overplayed her hand.

    • poppy says:

      he’s very much like his wife: do as i say, not as i do.
      rant on and on about the destruction of the environment and how *green* he is and YOU SHOULD BE TOO, then live in a house that wastes energy by not being sealed properly, do mega-tours, fly in private jets, continually power multiple, humongous homes without actually being able to live in them all simultaneously, etc etc.

      just like his wife, he is a whiny, gwynsufferable hypocrite.

      and he agreed to the never be papped so the paps will forever be after them.

    • Adrien says:

      Chris is a genuinely nice guy and is not the type who says douchey things. He is non confrontational. And artistically, that’s a problem. People who don’t like Coldplay say that they make bland and safe music. Their songs are often stadium friendly, anthemic types. Rock fans find that corny. Also, they stuck to the formula that made them successful.
      It’s in fashion nowadays to make fun of the band (there’s a ’40 year old Virgin’ gay joke about them).
      All those reasons are present in other successful bands like Journey, Kings of Leon, U2, etc. but why do people pick on Chris and his band? Maybe because Caleb Followil and Bono aren’t married to Gwyneth Paltrow? Yeah, it’s really just Gwyneth.

  8. Lady_Luck says:

    Shallow, and unbearable. Just like the perfume she represents. Gone in 60 seconds anyone ?

  9. marie says:

    Look at that, Star finally got it right. The peasants are revolting..

    • Sumodo1 says:

      …yeah, they stink on ice.” –Mel Brooks, The History of the World, Part I

    • V4Real says:

      The stroy is funny but I’m sure it holds some truth. Look at the bridges she burned; Ryder, Madonna, Reese. All these people can’t be wrong. It seems as if Gwyn is the common denominator with all these women. JLo throwed shade at her years ago. Let’s not forget Ryder was supposed to be her BFF and she stole The Shakespeare in Love script from her and got the part. People need to stop acting like Gwyn is so innocent and sweet; she’s not.

  10. paola says:

    Never found her attractive in the slightest, she has great legs yes but her face is just plane normal and I really don’t know how she managed to get a boyfriend like Brad Pitt and Chris Martin as a husband. She is so annoying and boring I really don’t know how she manages to stay on the press for so long.. Maybe it’s because of the insufferable things she says. I wish she could spend a day in the life of an average mother/woman maybe only then she’ll learn how to STFU.

  11. j.eyre says:

    Our schools start between 8:20 and 8:40. But they certainly don’t have croissants to snack on. I think I could nibble on a whole wheat tortilla if I wanted to hang at my kid’s elementary school with them.

  12. Lucy2 says:

    I can buy it- the general public is annoyed by her, I can see others in the business feeling the same way.
    She really needs to go low profile for a while.

  13. GiGi says:

    The thing I find odd, really, is that she wakes at 7 and still has time to get her kids ready (by herself) and to school on time?

    My kids are 10, 8 & 3. School starts at 8:50 which means we leave the house at 8:25 to start the drop off rounds. I get up at 5:30-6 to get everyone and myself ready to be out the door on time. She really must be a miracle worker to get it all done by herself every day *side-eye*

    • Jess says:

      I’m assuming her kids are still in school in London? If that’s the case I’m pretty sure she lives literally a couple of minutes walk from the school, so she doesn’t have to get them in a car, find a park etc.

      I don’t find anything odd about that timeframe though. My mum used to wake at 8, get herself ready for work, spend 15 minutes yelling at us to get it together, drop us off at school and be at work before 9. Different if you also have to wrangle a toddler though.

    • poppy says:

      Gigi, you actually do all the things she claims she does *all by herself*!

      i thought it was priceless the queen of the, “i don’t have a nanny because i want to raise my own kids” and “i don’t work much because i have to raise my own kids and do the school run” personal nanny came out with a child rearing book a few years ago.
      which goop endorsed.
      after years of continually saying she did it all herself. and you should too you fat peasants!

      goop has NEVER been able to keep her stories straight.

    • pantalones de fuego says:

      I can’t believe I’m kinda sorta sticking up for the Goopster, but I do think it’s possible. I can sometimes sleep in until 7 take a shower, get the boy up by 7:30, be out of the house by 8:10-8:15 and be to work by 8:30ish. Granted his school is right down the street and I work about 10 minutes away. Also, her kids are older so I assume that they dress themselves. Still, I’d be surprised if she didn’t have help with the morning routine.

    • EscapedConvent says:

      Yeah—no one believes she gets herself & the kids ready without any help. Why would she do that? That’s what the peasants do!

      Peasant moms get up with the roosters to get all that shiz done in time for school.

      But there is one reason I would believe that Goop gets up early to do a household task—I am sure that she has to distill the morning dew from the fields of babies breath, through a solid gold filter, to make her Himalayan All Saints Tea (yes, I am just stringing words together now).

      Just hers, though. Chris & the kids can use regular old Vichy water for their coffee & cocoa.

    • bluhare says:

      j eyre: LOL. But you do deserve a title. I will have to muse a bit on that one.

    • Jay says:

      I’m the eldest of six. When we were 12, 10, 8, 6, 3 and 1, we’d all get up at 7 and those of us who were at school (the first four) would be ready to go by just after 8. School started at 8:30 and was only a few blocks away so our dad would walk or bike us while my mum, who was the one who’d be up at 7 getting us ready, would clear away the breakfast stuff/get on with the rest of the housework. It’s possible, especially if you have a lot of kids and the first two are quite a bit older. We got pretty efficient over time!

  14. epiphany says:

    It’s people like Goop that inspired the French Revolution… I’d call her Marie Antoinette, but she would probably be flattered by the comparison…

  15. lou says:

    Hope she chokes on her croi ssant! Cant stand her!

  16. Jackie Jormp Jomp (formerly Zelda) says:

    Where I’m from (central Canada) school starts about 8:45 am. Maybe early school is a U.S. thing?

  17. Jess says:

    Well Jennifer Garner is married to Gwyneth’s ex (and J.Lo was engaged to him), so why anyone would expect those three to be best buds is beyond me. Madonna’s hated her for years now (she also hates J.Lo with a passion btw) and it hasn’t affected her, and Reese and Kate Hudson peaked ages ago so I don’t see how those two loathing Gywneth would matter to anyone who matters. The Angelina thing smells like bullshit, but anyway, once again Gwyneth is an ex of Angelina’s partner, so it’s unrealistic to think they’d ever want or expect to be all buddy buddy under any circumstances.

    Gwyneth’s always said ill-advised things in interviews, and she’s always caught heat for it. Remember the whole anti-american thing when she made a few comparisons between Britain and the US. If anything was going to be her downfall it was that, and instead she’s spent the years after that building an empire.

    I don’t doubt plenty of people in Hollywood dislike her, but you can say the same of all the women Star names as haters of Gywneth. Gwyneth is annoying, but in a town where people are still ready to defend Polanski, Sheen and Gibson, I can’t see it being a problem.

    Oh, and nothing unusual about those school times.

  18. Andrea says:

    Ok I’m going to defend one thing here. I totally agree that she is vapid, shallow, privileged and all that stuff. I can’t stand her.

    But I do think criticizing her for talking about her miscarriage (if that’s true that Chris is mad about it) is actually kind of problematic. Women who lose babies have the right to do whatever they need to in order to heal and get peace and I am not prepared to hate on any woman who feels like she needs to talk about it to survive the grief.

    All the rest I agree with.

    • LAK says:

      ….except that GOOP talked about it to sell cookbooks….

      • Andrea says:

        Do we know that? I hate this woman but I don’t think I can judge why she talked about a miscarriage.

      • LAK says:

        Andrea – Yes we do. For years GOOP has released bits and pieces about her personal life in order to sell her lifestyle empire. It’s part of her efforts to seem likable, or at the very least, that she understands what regular people go through. She’s strategically released information every time she is selling something new, during the press tour.

        The bit about the miscarriage was given in the midst of a larger interview to sell her latest cookbook.

        It wasn’t an information service to help other women, nor does she elaborate what life lessons she may have learnt from this episode. It was more, ‘i had a miscarriage, buy my cookbook!!!’

        last time it was, ‘i have a difficult marriage, buy my cookbook!!!’

        mixed in with titbits about her wonderful father and how she’s the best girlfriend ever.

    • Wif says:

      Except that he lost the baby too, and if he wants his grief to be private, that should be a marital matter, not tabloid fodder.

      • Andrea says:

        His grief can be private. But it wasn’t his body. It’s different. His baby. Not his body. I’m sorry I can’t believe I’m defending her. It’s just…if you have ever had a miscarriage (and I hope to God you have not)….it’s just….violating in a different way.

  19. A says:

    My junior high years started at 8.10-8.30 and my high school years at 9.10-9.30. Pretty normal in europe.

  20. Bored suburbanhousewife says:

    I note there is no mention in her busy average working mom day for the grocery store, the laundry, paying the bills, or running errands. I won’t even suggest vacuuming or dusting.

  21. Anna says:

    I do like the last pic. And while I dont care much for Goop either way, I LOVE how much drama she brings, and the fact that it seems like a vortex that pulls in every other high-profile female celeb. Who else has such a Black Hole potential?!

  22. Linda says:

    In the UK most state run schools start at 9am, private (fee paying) schools usually start a bit earlier. This is due to the parents having more power and it suits them this way.

  23. Jayna says:

    So made up.

    Rough life, G.

  24. Daahling says:

    So basically, she indulges in rich people Pinterest and does what most American stay-at-home mommies do, give or take a few billion chores. Slow clap for Paltrow….

  25. Gia says:

    I still like her! I don’t know what it is that gets everyone so pissy?? Yeah, she’s rich and has expensive taste but why does that make people so angry? I have friends/acquaintance that preach about topics I don’t agree with (anti vaccines, breastfeeding your kids until they’re 4, bitching about the govt constantly) but I just accept that that is who they are. It doesn’t get me hating. I like hearing G’s perspective and seeing how the other half lives…

    • V4Real says:

      Yeah but they’re preaching to you and not millions of people in the world via internet and interviews.

    • rita says:

      Gia:Why people hate little miss “Im better than you”: first, she has stated that she “hates living in the US” Our country is big. she could live anywhere. Pretty bad when you cant like your own country!! Johnny Deep chooses to live in France but doesnt detest his country. Not a snot,or snob. Quite approachable, very liked. You dont see Pricious G on the cover of, oh,Good Housekeeping cause she’s SO YOu- and Me.

    • Jules says:

      I still like her, too. Even when she’s going on and on about her newest eating habits, I just think, “Oh Gwyneth:).” She’s just figuring out life, like the rest of us—albeit with a bigger budget. Also, she is totally charming as Pepper Potts!

  26. Talie says:

    Jennifer Lopez gave an interview to MovieLine years and years ago where she bashed Gwyneth, Winona, and bunch of others…I think they’ve been on the outs ever since.

  27. Esme says:

    Sorry, but she is insufferable.

  28. andrea says:

    Even though i do find her insufferable, i was pleasantly suprised to hear her do an interview in spanish. I dont think ive ever seen an english speaking celebrity do that before! Thanks gwyneth

  29. RHONYC says:

    #1. your intro sentence to this post was the most perfect to date. ;-)

    #2. i couldn’t get through the 1st sentence of her interview. her insufferability has reached an all time high. :mad:

    #3. after REWATCHING ‘Meet the Fockers’ last weekend…i am still scratching my head as to how someone so funny, sexy & cool as Blythe Danner could’ve spat that out. :-(

    poor thing

  30. Madpoe says:

    Everyone on that cover (minus JenG & Ang) needs to be abducted by aliens asap and then released into space.

    • Carolyn says:

      hehe good one :) The more celebrity “news” I read the more I think most celebrties should just shut the hell up and not speak.

      Jenny from the Block casting shade at anyone is just hysterical. Geez a lot of these people are just full of their own self-importance.

  31. pwal says:

    First of all, it’s Star Magazine and they’re likely following up the poll deeming her as the most hated celeb. Plus, I think that Star isn’t comfortable going with their standby i.e. doing an Angelina cover just yet, less about them not knowing d!ck about the goings on in the JP household and more about not knowing what tack to take with Jolie.

    As for Paltrow being hated, she probably is, but if I was her, I wouldn’t be bothered AT ALL. As many have noted, some of the actresses listed aren’t much, professionally, and pretty questionable personally, so no loss.

    BTW… not a Paltrow fan.

  32. Flim says:

    That life sounds unbearably lonely.

  33. valleymiss says:

    Why is she giving such explicit, specific info about her kids’ dropoff times? As a well-known person, does that seem like a wise thing to do?

  34. Londongal says:

    I wouldn’t find her half as unbelieveably annoying as I do if she didn’t constantly use her lifestyle to ‘sell’ things and preach to us all about how we oughtto dress/eat/workout/etc. The arrogance of it all is so arseholish and unlike the rest of the actresses that supposedly hate her. It makes her ‘D-List’. The fact she can’t see that makes me think she’s utterly deluded. Then I dislike her more. I like to call this ‘The Goop Cycle’.

  35. lovegossip says:

    She is talking about getting up at 7 like it is some huge deal. I am up at 5:30 to get my kids to school. They catch the bus at 6:55 and 7:25. Then I start my day, which does NOT include 2 hours to work out with a shower on top of that. Poor, poor bitch. :-c

    If magically, she could experience one of my typical days as a poor single mother, I think maybe she might start biting her tongue. It makes a person say “I wish I had your problems!” But everything is relative I suppose. I can’t complain! :)

  37. BooBooLaRue says:

    On another note, I wish she would do something with that hair! BORING!

  38. hannah says:

    Her life sounds really boring. I would probably fall into a very deep depression if my days consisted of blogging, dropping the kids off at school and exercising.

  39. Hahaha says:

    What kinda ‘KRISTEN STEWARD’ look a like PHOTOSHOP<crap is this cover??

  40. Shelly says:

    I think Gwyneth is pretentious, but I wouldn’t call her mean.

  41. Ag says:

    She gets up at 7am, and that’s HARD? I guess even our peasant babies wake up earlier than her kids, because I’m usually up at 5.

  42. poppy says:

    this article is BS (still amusing) but doubt it is far from the truth.
    goop, from day one of her interviews, has ALWAYS had something snarky to say about specific celebrities. goopster has ALWAYS been a condescending super b¡tch.
    jennifer beale interviewed her and goop pretty much called beale and jennifer jason leigh OLD.
    in another interview she said something to the effect that she *works hard* and is a *true professional* unlike certain stars that wont leave their trailer until they get their tropical punch gatorade. (obviously that star would get the reference/her insult).
    a few interviews later she was bragging about how the crew was saying she needed to be ready to shoot a scene and she didn’t feel like it so she played the ” daddy do i have to?” card and how great it was because she didn’t have to.
    so very *professional*
    she also said tom cruise was the least gay man she had ever met and he and nicole were obviously totally in love. lol forever about that.

    i will NEVER forgive her for how she turned on kevin aucoin when he was struggling. he was never anything but amazing to her and she couldn’t be bothered in his time of need.
    pretty sure she bailed on winona because of her problems as well, not because of the script stealing. winona wasn’t of any use to her anymore.
    goop is the penultimate fair weather friend. smh

    people in the business always tolerated her because of her connection to spielberg and the weinsteins and maybe because her parents were respected, likable, and professional. not because she’s a dream to work with or has talent.
    now those connections aren’t very strong/important anymore and goop has no real power (her agent on the other hand) so i expect to see a lot more of this type of “coverage”.

    sorry, i know waaaaaay too much about the goop.

    • annaloo. says:

      Hey lady, come sit next to me. I’m so glad you helped me remember the “Daddy, do I have to” card. You saw through her BS a long long time ago!

      • poppy says:

        it wasn’t difficult, lol. she’d give one interview and contradict herself in the very next one.
        it was non-stop for a while -they were forever trying to foist her on everyone back then with the hard sell, sort of like this last round of PR, except back then she didn’t have to toot her own horn as much.
        these past few years she’s pretty much the only one proclaiming how great she is.

    • Lulu says:

      Poppy, what did she do to Kevin A?

      • poppy says:

        they were very tight until @ the time he started self-medicating heavily for his acromegaly.
        one example off the top, he came to her place to do her make-up, for free, for an event… she wasn’t ready, still in the shower. so he made himself a cup of tea while he was waiting. she was INCENSED he had the nerve, he felt familiar/at home/friendly enough with her to presume it would be fine with her to make a bloody cup of tea without asking first.
        i don’t remember if i read an interview with her where she said he was out of line or if it was told to me. if i can remember where the info is, i’ll post a link.
        she created a lot of ill will (with makeup artists and photographers) because he really helped her look her best and she dogged him royally when he was very very sick.
        pretty sure that’s why her makeup has been horrid since their falling out.

        she seems to have a lot of falling outs with her close *friends*.

      • annaloo. says:

        She’s such the poster child-adult of the Special Snowflake

    • LAK says:

      I loved Kevin Aucoin.

      I still use his make up range.

  43. Sumodo1 says:

    Fellow posters, this is the BEST thread EVER on CeleBitchy! (Been a fan forever of CB and Bedhead’s genius)!

    • poppy says:

      bedhead’s always been genius -she was an original goop hater!

      • Sumodo1 says:

        My sister turned me on to CeleBitchy a few years ago, saying (now, this is a mother of 3–the eldest is a mentally-challenged 20-yr-old) “I only have a few minutes a day to be online, and CeleBitchy gives me everything I need.” She used to subscribe to every tabloid, pre-CB.

        That being said, I’ve been here awhile, and this glorious GOOP-bash gets a group hug.

      • Meredith says:

        Yes, Sumodo 1, your sister is right. CB does give you everything you need. I don’t even own a TV and I know all the important stuff about the shows and actors as well as all the movie stuff. It is time well wasted, IMO!

    • annaloo. says:

      Agreed! I was just thinking that too and had posted so!

    • poppy says:

      i love celebitchy, the absolutely fabulous writers, and the commenters -even though i don’t always agree with everyone (i’m a crotchety b¡tch that pretty much hates everything) :smile: .
      everyone (for the most part, almost all the time) is respectful and often clever and i have seen a lot of love and compassion shown to complete strangers (not celebs lol), even strangers to the site, by the readers here. i’m not embarrassed i spend my interwebs time here.
      it is always good for an eyeroll and a laugh.
      i hate to have to start my morning without it!

  44. maggie says:

    I get kind of sad when I see her. I liked her in “Emma” and think she should have stuck to period pieces, kept her head down, and focused on acting. Knowing about her personal life has made me dislike her…I don’t want to know about it. Just act.

  45. dcypher1 says:

    Her Hugo boss ads look hella photoshopped.

  46. flan says:

    *Gwyneth is “obsessed with getting Angelina to like her because she knows Angelina has class and power.”

    A refreshing change from the Jennifer Aniston thing :D

    • Virgilia Coriolanus says:


      Forget about Jennifer Aniston being jealous of the whole Brangelina, power couple, think of GOOP! I can’t believe I never considered this. Just imagine it:

      People Magazine interview:

      PEOPLE: Congratulations, Ms. Paltrow for your reconciliation and marriage to Mr. Pitt.

      GOOP: Ahem, it’s Mrs. Gwyneth Paltrow-Pitt, thank you. And thank you for your congratulations. It was only a matter of time.

      PEOPLE: A matter of time?

      GOOP: Only a matter of time after he left that Friends girl. I mean it’s fairly obvious. Can’t you see the lifestyle changes?

      PEOPLE: Oh, you meant the birth of little Kate?

      GOOP: AHEM! It’s Katherine Mary Elizabeth Josephine Amelia Marie Jane Paltrow-Pitt! And no! I’m speaking of his diet. Doesn’t Bradley looks sooooo much better without any of that garbage in his body?

      PEOPLE: Garbage?

      GOOP: Yes, garbage. Every peas-excuse me, person knows that wheat, dairy, and sugar are absolute body killers. They clog up your digestion system, which is why I started my company, The Honest Goop. Bradley and I have started to use the GOOP cleanse to get all of the garbage out of our bodies, whilst drinking Kale smoothies to calm our elite stomachs. Katherine Mary Elizabeth Josephine Amelia Marie Jane Paltrow-Pitt will be starting on our cleanse as soon as she is old enough.

      PEOPLE: Aren’t cleanses supposed to be for adults? I mean I don’t think it’s for-.

      GOOP: Silence! Peas-I mean, people such as yourselves, every day people must follow Bradley’s and mine example. Cleansing is good for the body, although you must make sure it’s a GOOP cleanse. Then you’ll be sure it can handle peas-er, I mean everyday people’s bodies.

      PEOPLE: Um, okay, I guess. Anything else you’d like to throw out there?

      GOOP: No, nothing really. I must be going now. I must be at home to make sure Bradley is making my Kale shake right now. Ta.

      On a side note, I am sure that if GOOP hadn’t married Chris Martin, then she would’ve at least tried to get back with Brad. Even if she had to cross Angelina. Ahhh, what a fight (on GOOP’s part) that would’ve been. I can picture GOOP going strong after him, and Angelina not even acknowledging her with a look.

  47. Dedrie says:

    She and Reese have formed an pretentious elite committee of pooh on you for hating us.. nawh., we won, as we have the IT factor you don’t,..ha-ha-hah!

  48. annaloo. says:

    DAMN today’s thread is good!

    Celebitchy’s posters are in FINE FORM today, I think the infatiguable Lainey would have trouble defending her blind weird love for her G.(I love Lainey, but I’m also starting to think she has mild Barbie issues)

    I haven’t seen such clever quips before 2 martinis in awhile.

  49. ViktoryGin says:

    It’s funny how the tide shitfts, because 10 years ago I absolutely couldn’t stand this woman. I thought that the bulk of her success was largely forged forged from blonde, WASP privilege and wasn’t nearly as talented as she was purported to be. I feel rather neutrally about her now, but am glad that I am vindicated.

    • LilyRose says:

      Same here. I remember that People cover when she was Pitts newly engaged fiancé. It was around the time that book The Rules was a big deal, because the headline made some reference to the book. I remember thinking her snobby and smug but couldn’t figure out why. But I can’t get worked up about her; all she does is inconsequential.

  50. drdoolittling says:

    It’s interesting that she got ripped about stinking to high heaven at the met gala and now all of a sudden, she has a frickin’ closet full of perfume. This entire woman embodies STFU and GMAFB to a T.

  51. Gabby says:

    They lost me here:

    “Kate Hudson thinks she’s elitist”

    Kate “Aspen” Hudson, Kate “my parents have 10 houses because they’ve EARNED that lifestyle” Hudson. Yeah, right.

    • anneesezz says:

      Kate “I’m a pot, you’re a kettle” Hudson? Wow, ironic much?

      She’s another one who was born on third base and thinks she hit a triple. Neither one of these talentless twits would have this kind of success in Hollywood without their parents. At least have the decency to admit it!

      • Itsa Reallyme says:

        Yes, to both of you. Blythe and Goldie are both BEAUTIFUL, talented women that raised spoiled, rather plain looking and only mildly talented daughters. Neither Gwyneth nor Kate would have ever been noticed had they not had famous mothers.

  52. Tano says:

    I think its sad when someone wants to hide their ethnicity by doing all these things to their face, hair and body.

    I also don’t care for celebs who move to the United Kingdom and try to pretend to be upper-crust Brits, like Madonna did and a slew of others along with her. She thought she was so hip and trendy when she started bashing America. Its so sad because we can all see through this. I am proud to be an American from Texas and am very glad that when I travel to the UK, I don’t tolerate any slams against my nationality and I am quick to warn people that this is bigotry. I have to laugh at people from the UK who come here and pretend to be posh. I’ve been there, I’ve seen the trailer parks…..nobody can fool me on this one. Their poop stinks like everyone else’s!

  53. bored_01 says:

    I thought her kids weren’t allowed to have satanic croissants! or is her food hate only reserved to foods without cool french names?

  54. thebutlerdidit says:

    “I have a wardrobe of scent.” Saying you have a wardrobe of 100s of perfumes? Yeah, makes you just like Denise the checker at Dollar General and Linda in payroll. Just a regular ‘ol working mom!

    If she stinks like everyone says she does, then she needs a wardrobe of deodorant, screw the worry over metalics in the deodorant, which no one has proven to be true, BTW.

  55. Emily C. says:

    I am one of those people who have a whole closet full of perfume.

    Yeah, one of those people, I totally get it now because we all know someone like this, right? WTF? I’ve never even heard of anyone with a “closet full of perfume”.

    Gwyneth Paltrow is really, really, really stupid.

  56. Kim says:

    She doesnt come across as bitchy to me at all & never has. She does come across as classy, with manners which i think these days gets misconstrued with being a bitch because we are so used to terrible behavior: Kim K, Lindsay Lohan etc. Granted her Goop stuff isnt for the masses its not like other celebs are any more down to earth. They all live on a pedestal in la la land. Ive never understood the backlash with her? She must be a b in person?

  57. Drew says:

    My kids are at the same school as hers so just confirming that the start times are right and we do have croissants in the dininghall .. ;)

  58. DAFFY says:



  59. SpunkyPR says:

    I really don’t care for her but what bothers me the most (and she’s not the only “actress” to imply this)is the comment:

    I have had a really good experience working for Boss, and I always say this, but it really is such a perfect job when you have kids. I can only really do one film a year now because of my family

    If you choose to only do one film a year because you want to be with your family then say that, instead, she makes it seem like her family is the reason why she can’t do more films, even though she wants to. I’m tired of these hollywood folks using their kids as an excuse on why they can’t work anymore. I would love to stay at home with my kids, but unfortunately, my situation doesn’t allow that, so why can’t they just state that they choose their family instead. Ugh, sorry for the rant.

    • Z says:

      I guess if you could stay home by choice then it would be okay, but not for G? I would stay home with my kids if I could, but i can’t understand the hate for someone who chose to work less so she could be with her kids more. Am I missing something? I think many moms would do so if it were possible.

  60. Much as I find her clueless and self-involved, I saw this line:

    “he’s pissed that she talked about the miscarriage”

    and thought, “Well, too damn bad, Chris Martin.”

    She’s the one who miscarried. She can talk about it or not talk about it as she pleases.

  61. StaCat1 says:

    I don’t care what this person thinks of that person…very high school.

    But that WWD article is ridiculously damning. For someone who “thinks” she works hard- and chastises moms who can’t find time to work out (let alone get a trainer OR gym membership)- she has NO grounds to judge from her “rarified” position. ;)

    Her schedule makes her sound FAR from busy- she doesn’t know the meaning of it- if she said I start my day at 4am and actually HAD to do the mad dash to pick up her kids by 6pm- I might get her somewhat.

    I would LOVE that schedule. The luxury of working out two hours a day, being ABLE to drop my kids off at school or pick the up at dismissal even- let alone read and eat a croissant with them. Girl is CLUELESS.

  62. Norman says:

    I wonder how the “Goop Cleanse” is doing?

  63. swack says:

    Here in Missouri, where my grandchildren go to school, the hours are 8:45 – 3:15. The middle school and high school start at 7:20 and go to 2:40. In another school district because of the bus situation (district owns the busses and don’t have enough), some don’t start until 9:00 am (elementary that is). So I don’t think it is too far off.

  64. Janet says:

    The kids aren’t going to school late. My elementary school in NYC started at 8:45 a.m. My high school started at 8:15.

  65. Jennifer says:

    My daughter’s elementary school starts at 8:45, so no her kids don’t go to school late.

    Have you noticed that you never see her with her mother? I’ve always liked Blythe, I wonder what’s up with that..

  66. Jane says:

    I may be the only one that feels this way, but I’m tired of the media always picking on women. Every week, these gossip reports are the same BS. Star Magazine is infamous for picking selective choices to try and tarnish their image. -_-

  67. The Wizz says:

    Those school start times look about right. In Australia school goes from about 8.45am to about 3.20pm. Would expect our motherland, England, to be solidarity.

  68. Ellen says:

    I thought with her restrictive diet a “croissant” would be a “no no”

  69. Neil says:

    Whenever one is using a tabloid as source material one should always use quotation marks when referring to “inside sources”. It is the literal equivalent to a wink. In other words, this story I am telling you? Not to be taken seriously.

  70. Thiajoka says:

    This has been a truly crappy two days, so I needed this. Thanks so much for giving this to me.

  71. lisa2 says:

    I don’t know what happened to her. I actually use to like her. Love Emma. But it seemed that she started to change when she married Chris. She acted like she was marrying royalty. That she was Princess Gwenn. I recall how her interviews were so snotty. And then her father died. I know she was a daddy’ girl, but she does not seem very close to her mother at all. She hardly mentions her mother. It is always about her father. And I don’t recall seeing her with her mother forever.

    I recall her saying how marriage is hard, and as a child she remembers her mother yelling at her father. Just something about that made me go mmmmmmm

  72. Rebecca says:

    Did you notice that all the women on the cover saying stuff about Gweneth just happen to be dating or have dated her ex’s. If this is true, which I doubt, I wonder if she has a jealous streak.

  73. mslewis says:

    I call BS on Hollywood being “tired” of Gwynnie. She is far too “inside” for the powers that be not to like her. Remember,Stephen Speilberg is her godfather. Also, these “insiders” can say what they want but I’ve never heard of Gwyneth Paltrow being difficult on set or mean to anyone. She is a professional through and through and that’s all that counts on a movie set. If she had been as mean as the rags said on IM2 then she would not be in the latest movie.

    On the other hand, girl is a snob and elitist and spoiled rotten. That doesn’t make her a bad person. Star just wants to start something.

  74. I cannot listen to Coldplay anymore because of Gwyneth. Fuck your oversharing Gwyneth.

  75. taxi says:

    This is so much hate & contempt for a person who lives as she chooses to do without doing apparent harm to anyone else. Her breadth of choices may be different than ours but why castigate her so much?

    Just don’t read her blog or cookbook or whatever. Surely there are more deserving targets for such a high level of venom. The K-trash sisters Including Kl-hoe with her dui problems, RHs of anywhere, fall-down-in-the-street drunks & addicts, the physically violent, the ones who regularly walk out on bar & dinner tabs, abuse assistants, etc, come to mind.

  76. Z says:

    I know lots of women who work, take care of their families, and still find time to workout and eat well. I don’t think people have to do so in their lives, but it’s not like it’s impossible. You make time in life for the things that matter to you. If you want it bad enough you’ll do it.

  77. la chica says:

    GOOP is learning daily that you NEVER piss on or off Anna Wintour. The bad press has only just begun. GOOP is over.

  78. Jenn says:

    1) she’s eating croissants but has problems with gluten. She’s full of shit. And also…gluten.
    2) a closet of perfume can’t mask her staaaank.
    3) If she’s so awesome why is she making her mama shill bone pills on TV?

    If I had money, my mama would be treated like the QUEEN of the universe! Therefore, I now believe that Goop is the devil’s concubine. And, that yes, she smells bad.

  79. Mario says:

    Its funny how many people make comments about her husband as if he was their best friend or a relative (you don’t know what he’s really like) and actually defend Gwyneth when she actually did write that crap about how her life is supposedly so demanding. She’s a spoiled rich brat who had no clue what being a real working mother is like and has no clue how hard the working poor have it. I can believe she’s a pain to be around, I’ve read GOOP and she’s a gigantic snob.

  80. Decloo says:

    She has frozen Courteney Cox face in that second pic.

  81. annaloo. says:

    This whole thread has made me hungry for croissants…

  82. EscapedConvent says:

    I’m a bit late but I must throw in my two fifty-pound notes’ worth (Goop would not stand for just two cents worth).

    I’m just choking with laughter that Gwyneth is representing Hugo Boss, since they made Nazi uniforms. Hugo Boss himself was a member of the Nazi Party. So it’s sort of perfect—Hausfrau Goop, Lifestyle Nazi.

  83. Rachel says:

    “I think that Jour is the perfect name for it — it’s very uplifting”

    I don’t get this … why does the word for ‘day’ evoke ‘uplifting’? I suspect she’s confusing it with ‘joie’ (joy) or even ‘jouer’ (to play). Maybe she finds the daytime particularly ‘uplifting’, but it doesn’t sound like it, given the next sentence is:

    “And uplifting may be just what she needs given her regular morning routine.”

    • Lucrezia says:

      I don’t speak French, but I think day = uplifting works. If it was called “summer” I could imagine someone saying the same thing.

      Personally I’m a night-owl, but some people seem to find daylight stimulating.

      The next bit about “uplifting may be just what she needs” is just the journalist editorializing. Impossible to know whether Goop herself thinks she needs some extra morning uplift. Now that I’ve re-read it, the interview seems weirdly pieced together. I really doubt Goop jumped straight from talking about the perfume to her daily routine. There’s a question or some linking chit-chat that’s been cut out.

  84. Mitch Buchanan Rocks! says:

    “I am one of those people who have a whole closet full of perfume. I love it; I have always loved it and have always had a wardrobe full of scent,” she said, admitting to having at least a hundred in her possession.

    This explains exactly what is wrong with her then – huffin fumes then writin goop.

  85. NorthernLala says:

    OMG this picture, the expression, is the perfect picture, and it makes me chuckle. She looks like a bitchy prom queen giving a once over to the less popular girls.
    Poor girl, she’ll have to retreat to Italy for the summer I suppose…
