Star: Chris Martin told Gwyneth that Kate Bosworth was her “younger version”

FP_IMAGE_3748776/FP_SET_3747243

I’ve finally got the full Star Magazine article about Chris Martin cheating on wife Gywneth Paltrow with Kate Bosworth. The news of this alleged affair came out on Tuesday, and it’s been simmering ever since. While both Gwyneth’s and Chris’s reps are out there, giving “this is so ridiculous” quotes to anyone who will listen, most of the gossip sites are running with “insider” quotes about how Chris and Gwyneth’s marriage is totally on the rocks. X17 even ran this hilariously exquisite bitchy quote from a source: “Chris is totally Kate’s type, she loves the Brits like Orlando and James Rousseau. And she’s Chris’s type too. A blonde bore, just like Gwyneth! Gwyneth and Chris are definitely done. Their marriage is over!” Meanwhile, ABC News declared yesterday that Chris Martin will definitely sue Star Magazine for their story, but I haven’t seen that confirmed anywhere. So let’s see what other dirt Star dragged up:

The witness says that since the backstage VIP section at the U2 concert on Oct. 23 was full of Secret Service agents keeping an eye on former President Clinton, perhaps Kate and Chris thought no one would notice them.

“They weren’t even shy about it. There weren’t too many regular people there, so maybe they thought no one would blab about them. But they looked really into each other – they held hands and kissed, and I saw Chris caress her cheek. It was pretty romantic.”

Later, at an after party for Bono at The Palazzo’s Carnevino restaurant, Chris and Kate kept carrying on, eyewitnesses report.

“Kate arrived around midnight with Chris and some other Coldplay members… they stayed until around 5 a.m. It was a wild party!”

When Kate and Chris first arrived, she went straight up to the hostess’ stand and started rambling on about how she and Gwyneth were really good friends.

“Thinking about it now, it was like she was overcompensating,” says an onlooker. “She said that whenever she’s with Gwyneth in Los Angeles or New York, they always go to one of Mario Batali’s restaurants. Carnevino is one of Mario’s restaurants. It was so out of the blue that she was talking about her friendship with Gwyneth, like she was justifying why she was with Chris. And it’s weird because Mario and Gwyneth are good friends too.”

“Kate and Chris sat at a table towards the back of the room. They seemed pretty into each other,” says an eyewitness. “They spent the entire time hanging out together, eating, drinking, laughing. Wherever Kate went, Chris would be right next to her. They sure looked like a couple to me.”

Chris’s hookup with Kate may not come as a shock to friends of the couple. Some say Gwyneth and Chris have been drifting apart for months. “It’s like Chris suddenly realized he’s a rock megastar and women throw themselves at him… he’s become incredibly affected by female flattery. And Kate is just the kind of beauty who’ll flatter him = bright, sexy and intelligent.”

Whispers of trouble in Chris and Gwyneth’s marriage have been around for a long time, but looked like they were making a go of it in August when they purchased a new house. But, “it didn’t work. The marriage has major problems. They’re at a crossroads and there’s no knowing if the relationship can survive… they’re leading separate lives. She finds him immature. He finds her pretentious.”

Meanwhile, Kate Bosworth “has been chasing Chris for a long time,” a source reveals. “All his friends think that there’s something going on with them.”

“Last summer, Gwyneth’s ego was bruised when Chris told her that Kate was like a younger version of herself… he’s had a crush on Kate since she starred in Blue Crush. Gwyneth knows that Chris flirts all the time on the road, but after that ‘younger version of you’ comment, Gwyneth is more sensitive and suspicious of Kate.”

[From Star Magazine, print edition, November 16 2009]

This sh-t is epic. It’s got it all – an affair, Goop, Secret Service, a Bubba Clinton shout-out, Mario Batali and scandal. So juicy! And I’m leaning more towards a large chunk of the story being true, too. Which is why I think Chris Martin won’t end up suing Star. Many of the quotes were from eyewitnesses in very public places, it’s not the normal “the walls have eyes” crap. I think Chris and Kate really are having an affair, and have probably been sleeping together for a while. Oh, and I would have loved to see Gwyneth’s prissy face when Chris told her that Bosworth was a “younger version”. Poor Goop. It’s not so Goopy when you have the same problems as all the peasants, is it?

    “She finds him immature. He finds her pretentious.”

    yup, that about sums up the entire situation.

  2. Telly says:

    Star: Chris Martin told Gwyneth that Kate Bosworth was her “younger version”…except that Kate is mildly attractive.

  3. Roni says:

    I give this marriage less than 2 years and that’s being GENEROUS! What woman wants to hear that some other woman “looks like a younger version than her!” Unless that person was talking about the woman’s daughter (than I could see the point in making that statement)! That is a freaking slap in the face!

  4. happymom says:

    Why in the world is he carrying on with her in such public venues?

  5. anna says:

    I relish in scandalous gossip about the Goop, but my bs meter went off in this paragraph:

    “Thinking about it now, it was like she was overcompensating,” says an onlooker. “She said that whenever she’s with Gwyneth in Los Angeles or New York, they always go to one of Mario Batali’s restaurants. Carnevino is one of Mario’s restaurants. It was so out of the blue that she was talking about her friendship with Gwyneth, like she was justifying why she was with Chris. And it’s weird because Mario and Gwyneth are good friends too.”

    Too much name dropping, even the name of the restaurant… the quote sounds like it’s overcompensating.

    But I am still inspired to haiku!!!

  6. anna says:

    “Young version of you”
    Chris says of Kate to his wife
    An insult to Kate

  7. anna says:

    what will the Goop do?
    husband found a younger love
    William Joel is free

  8. birdie says:

    I can’t wait for Gwyneth to pull rank on Kate… Remember how successful Rosetta Getty was at pulling rank on Sienna Miller? Not that Kate Bosworth has much of a career to destroy. I like how the reference to the movie that Chris had seen Kate in was from 2002. What has she done for the past seven years?

    Anyway among Gwyneth’s well connected friends… Her godfather Steven Spielberg, Harvey Weinstein, Madonna, Stella McCartney, Christy Turlington, Ethan Hawke, Mario Batalli, Robert Downey Jr., plus countless producers and directors that I can’t place by name.

    If Gwyneth is going to be publicly shamed, there will be some restitution for Bosworth to pay.

  9. Leticia says:

    Chris MArtin is as pretentious as GP. I would love to rip that tape off his hands…

  10. Mich says:

    Well for starters “the other members of Coldplay” haven’t been in America so there’s an obvious lie right there.

    It’s all bulshit, like Anna said the quotes are all name dropping and supposition.

    He might not be happy with Goopy but he’s not stupid enough to make out with another woman in front of all her friends.

  11. tommysgirl54 says:

    I believe that Chris Martin would cheat but in no way do I believe any of this story. Except that Kate is trying to get another guy that is attached already. She is head and shoulders above Sienna in that department but no one cares about her so no one finds out about her complete whoreishness (not a word but I like it)

  12. princess pea says:

    “he’s had a crush on Kate since she starred in Blue Crush.”

    Why do I have such a hard time believing this bit? I cannot picture Chris watching that movie at all, I think. Which is silly, there’s no reason he wouldn’t like airhead movies, but… I don’t know.

  13. Anastasia says:

    She is prettier than Goopy. But I sort of doubt this story. I don’t doubt that their marriage is on the rocks, though. I bet it has been for a while.

  14. Tia C says:

    I don’t even know who Kate Bosworth is, but she is definitely not a younger version of Goopy. Bosworth is actually attractive.

  15. birdie says:

    In GP’s defense, those photographs aren’t a fair side-by-side comparison. Kate is at some fancy event and Gwyneth just is out and about. I think Gwyneth is a lot better looking.

  16. original kate says:

    “younger version of you” = you before you became GOOP.

    oh, and anna – i love a good haiku…thanks!

  17. grisgris says:

    Well it does look like Bosworth is wearing Goop’s boob bandages from Shakespeare in Love over her dress.

  18. Firestarter says:

    I don’t like Goopey, but I find Chris Martin a disgraceful husband and father. It isn’t like he didn’t know what he was getting into when he married Goopey. He went on to have two children with her, so he made his choice, eyes wide open.

    Another example of a father that his children can look up to. Shame that they have to listen to his crappy music too!

  19. Mackenzie says:

    This is such a load of crap. I hope both Bosworth and Martin sue the pants off of Star.

  20. kai says:

    aren’t we supposed to call bosworth a slut and a homewrecker like we usually do?

  21. Karin says:

    Kai: excellent! ;-)

    Is this the colour Goop’s hair goes in winter (see roots)? Oh dear.

    Never understood the hype around Coldplay. In my opinion, Katy Brand’s hilarious parody of them is spot on (check out the background musicians, ha, ha!) – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GtyEvyB9l7Q

  22. Casey says:

    Since when does anyone take Star magazine gossip as gospel? LOL. This has phoney all over it. It’s almost like someone is really out to get Kate Bosworth considering all of the negative press she’s gotten lately. I hope that True Blood vampire that she’s dating comes to her defense or something.

  23. Ally says:

    Thanks, kai! I can’t believe I didn’t know about Katy Brand!

  24. AC says:

    i never thought i’d defend gweneth much but she’s beautiful and probably looks younger than most 24 year olds.

  25. irishserra says:

    I’m not fan of Paltrow, but it is frustrating to see another woman not paying any regard to another’s marriage. Women get nastier and nastier don’t they?

    We expect it from men (sadly), but it’s a shame that women fan the flames.

    Shame on Chris. So sad. No commitment these days.

  26. bella mama says:

    shout out to anna and her haiku!

  27. Bek says:

    Hey Kaiser (or anyone) –tell me how this whole “goop” thing got started, and why most everybody on this site hates Gwyneth. I guess I’ve missed something…

  28. lrm says:

    I think they are both beautiful women…
    How big of an age difference is there? GOOPY isn’t that old….
    She does seem stressed in the last couple of years,however. It’s made her look more aged,IMO. But she may move through this period and bloom again-life ebbs and flows,and so yea,even pretentious people we dont really like,can have rough periods in life….I say cut her some slack,b/c I think she and Martin [who i cannot stand!!!! much worse than goopy] truly fell in love and started a family together. Not a fake relationship like so many arrangements we hear about in H-wood. Give them a break. Breaking up in the public eye ain’t easy. Cute kids though-pics of them the other day somewhere…

  29. sg says:

    good point Birdie: I hope gwyneth does exactly that, kate deserves it! And I have never been a fan of gwyneth at all, her acting sucks, she’s not that pretty, but that is so pathetic and disrespectful of kate…

  30. Liv says:

    Kate’s career is a JOKE. Chris was way off if he said she’s a younger Goopy. At least Goopy has some acting ability and isn’t known more for her boyfriends and dress choices than her career.

  31. Macca says:

    That’s an unflattering pic of Gwynnie. Tad harsh there in my opinion. I believe this story as I heard the very same one from someone who should know last year. Same people. Why the hate on GP? Surely the real idiot is Chris Martin? You make dreary music, are completely self important and then cheat on your wife? What happened to sisterhood? Kate has a terrible reputation for several things. Hitting on available men and some other erumours (like how she manages to stay so slim). Her reputation must be pretty bad in Hollywood. I am no GP fan but way to go hitting on Steven Spielberg’s Goddaughter’s husband there love!

  32. Embee says:

    kai: re “aren’t we supposed to call bosworth a slut and a homewrecker like we usually do? ”

    I think we only do that when we don’t have any objections to the wife being betrayed. It’s all about whether she deserves it, y’know. ;)

  33. pickelhaube says:

    Macca-

    Sisterhood? Are you serious? All that sisterhood garbage is just a load of crap that gets tossed out the window the second a woman that is a “threat” comes in the picture. It’s a nice idea and all, but in the real world women will not hesitate to throw another woman under the bus if that woman has something she wants or is jealous of. So this is no shock to me…just the way of the world.

  34. pickelhaube says:

    Oh, and if I was married to a stuck up, uptight, elitist tw@t like Gwyneth, I’d probably screw around on her. But I’d pick someone better looking than ugly fiveheaded Kate Bosworth!

  35. Westender says:

    Guess the “GOOP” will hit the fan now!!

  36. Mairead says:

    Well, in terms of epic cheating stories, it’s very much a Poundshop version of the whole George Harrison cheating on Pattie Boyd with Ringo Starr’s ex-wife AND Ronnie Wood’s first wife (and Pattie’s own affairs), innit?
    Now THAT was an epic clusterf**k of a situation.

  37. niamh (neev) says:

    bosworth’s eyes are freaking me out

    “““““““
    Sadly, you are right. I hope Gwyneth retorted to chris with “That’s funny because you are a younger version of Howdy Dudy”.

  39. GatsbyGal says:

    @anna – your haikus make me laugh so hard, I love reading them, keep it up!

  40. RavenMadd says:

    Thanks again for the Laughs Out Loud, Anna!

  41. Mary Stevens says:

    Irm,

    Gwyneth (1972) is nearly five years older than her husband (1977). Kate Bosworth (1983) is definitely younger than both. Thin fair skinned blondes tend to age early.

  42. Bee says:

    @Bek “Goop” is the name of Gwyneth’s blog. Which serves as a self indulgent voice box that she uses to help all of us mere mortals learn to be more like the goddess herself. If you want to know why so many people dislike this woman, go to http://goop.com and watch as she educates us all on the fine art of making a sandwhich, or the dangers of having an “evil tongue.” It’s riveting.

  43. Jazz says:

    Hmmm, maybe Kate’s PR cooked this whole thing up to get her some publicity. What has she done since the Blue Crush movie? Apart from being too skinny and having a lollipop head that is.
    I know Gwyneth doesn’t get a lot of love around here, but if this is true, I hope she kicks his insufferable a$$ to the curb.

  44. mollination says:

    Imagine having sex with either woman – a bag of bones without breasts, hips, ass, or shape for that matter. Like a 12 year old boy….how is any of that sexy? Hollywood is so friggin warped.

  45. Cath says:

    I hate Goopy, but I will say this: Kate Bosworth isn’t Gwyneth’s younger version where acting is concerned. I’ve never seen a more hideous “actress.”

  46. Goddess711 says:

    No woman “deserves” to be cheated on by her husband. If a guy’s not into his wife anymore, be a man and walk before effing around behind her back. Anyone who actually thinks this is great because they don’t like GOOP herself needs to give their head a shake – what goes around, comes around and NOBODY is immune.

  47. Granger says:

    I’m not a Gwyneth fan, and I think GOOP is a ridiculous cry for attention, but even I can’t deny that she and Chris are notoriously shy of papparazzi attention. *Especially* Chris. Neither of them is prone to hanging out at H-wood hot spots where their photos might be taken. So try as I might, I cannot believe he’d cheat on his wife in a public place, in front of people she knows, and — more importantly — in front of people who could easily take a photo and sell it to the highest bidder. I just don’t buy this story at all.

  48. NFLer says:

    Maybe Gwynnie was a Cold-Lay for Cold-Play.

  49. bacon says:

    “Last summer, Gwyneth’s ego was bruised when Chris told her that Kate was like a younger version of herself”

    Well, he’s right. Kate is basically Fishstick Jr. in terms of general blandness.

    Whether this is true or not, I agree with the person who says Bosworth’s Hollywood future is pretty bleak if Fishy suffers even one teensy iota of shame over this. She’ll be lucky to get a zit cream commercial if Fishy decides on a little revenge. Kevin Spacey will have to really step up his game in order to get her roles now.

  50. While Kate and Gwyneth are pretty much comparable to looks and yes, blandness, I seriously hope this is not true. Poor kids.

  51. Macey says:

    There is too much flattery in this story towards Kate. Firstly, that she’s been friends with Goop for so long. No way would she have that kind of connection and not use it till recently. Secondly, that they called her bright, sexy, and intelligent. This is a woman who raved about how great it was that her dog was peeing during an interview with Vanity Fair. Bright and intelligent she isn’t. Plus she hasn’t been considered sexy in a long time, since her raging coke habit ate up all her muscle tone. On top of this all, she’s been known to cook stories of herself and whatever guy she’s connected to up and sell to the highest bidder. No one really understands the depths of her famewhoring ways because she’s never been an actress the general public cares about. People seem to forget that we were treated to an episode of the Orlando Bloom and Kate show weekly in magazines and tabloids. Then there was her mention of not wearing undies in a really short dress at the 21 premiere for attention and it went no where. Then there was all her attentions on Alexander Sarsgard just recently. So, it’s not out of the relm of possibility that she’s possibly behind this story. Really, think about it. If you wanted to say that Chris Martin was cheating on Goop, would you say that it was with Kate Bosworth? Exactly.

  52. eajk says:

    Goop has always made me sick! She suffers from such HIGH self esteem I am surprised CM ever married her in the first place unless he too, is a completely self absorbed slob. After GP snaked the Shakespeare in Love role from her BFF Winona, she has made me sick. Hate doesn’t even cover it. PRETENTIOUS SPOILED VANILLA. Lets face it though…..the only way to achieve fame no matter who you are or what you do, you must give up the moral compass. You HAVE to be a complete sociopath really.

  53. Betty says:

    I love Gwyneth Paltrow, and why shouldn`t she be hurt if the story is true? Celebs have feelings too. They have the same problems as everyone else only their lives are put on display for the world to see, and the media always puts their own spin on things to make it more juicy. That`s what sells magazines! I don`t know much about kate Bosworth, but she doesn`t seem like that great an actress or anything else. The only time I see her in the media is when she is dating someone Now she is apparently dating Alexander Skarsgard who is WAY too good for her.

  54. Krizta says:

    I hate Kate. She’s not even good at acting. Oh, this is her way to get some attention?

    Cheap SLU*

  55. mike says:

    Gywneth Paltrow is beautiful talented and perfect in almost everyway. That’s all folks.

  56. mike says:

    Gywneth Paltrow is still the Darling of Hollwood. Can’t say anything bad or good about Chris except he seems to being doing quiet well for himself. Hope they work it out. If not hope they both find happiness on their own.

  57. will says:

    Chris Martin calling someone pretentious? Pot calling the kettle black. Chris Martins is like one of the most pretentious beings on the face of this planet, right up there with Bono and Damien Hurst.
