Gwyneth Paltrow: ‘Brunettes have more fun as they can go under the radar’

Here are some photos of Gwyneth Paltrow at LAX yesterday, I suppose she’s flying out to New York or London. I don’t hate what she’s wearing here at all, and I’m kind of enchanted by her purse/carry-on. I have a thing for white purses. That’s a really cool one. I kind of hope that she’s going back to London and she’ll take it easy for a little while (as in, no interviews) until the promotional tour for Iron Man 3 heats up. Because Goop over-saturated everything while shilling her cookbook and the backlash has been relentless.

The newest thing is that food writers and journalists are pointing out that Gwyneth’s recipes are incredibly expensive. The NY Times’ article about it was called “Healthy Eating on Just $300 a Day”. One site notes that It’s All Good is “drenched in a chatty faux-populism that could only come from a rich person fearlessly boasting about her life of privilege. Paltrow casually writes that she has a surfeit of apples from the trees on her $5.4 million five-bedroom Hamptons summer home.” She apparently advises the peasants to make a duck-egg-white omelet… which costs $30. Her fish fingers recipe costs $71.50, and her tuna salad costs $120 to make. OH GOOP!!! This is Gwyneth’s attempt at aspirational cooking for peasants – they cannot afford to make her elite food, but they can afford to look at the photos of Goop enjoying the food.

Meanwhile, there are some more excerpts from Gwyneth’s interview with Stylist Magazine and OMG did you know that she lives in London and people in London are way more stylish and London London London?!! She also has some interesting things to say about being a natural blonde (side-eye) and how everybody is just waiting for blondes to fail. Ha.

Gwyneth Paltrow says an on-trend make-up look in London is currently a “cool, slightly undone” dark eye. The Oscar-winning actress is the creative inspiration for beauty brand Max Factor’s new campaigns. The celebrity blogger shared her beauty essentials and tips for creating a hot and on-trend make-up look.

“I love that cool, slightly undone look you get with a dark, smudgy eye,” Gwyneth told Stylist magazine. “You see that a lot in London, there’s a really cool vibe here at the moment where the look is glam, but a little edgier.”

The star said the key to getting your make-up spot on is to focus on a few signature looks. In her new Max Factor campaign, she worked with make-up artist Pat McGrath to create a modern businesswoman look for the shoot.

“I’m a big fan of a simple red lip teamed with fresh skin, like the businesswoman look in the campaign,” she continued. “I think it’s a strong statement and a really good look for me personally. I change things up on a night out by wearing a smokey eye.”

Gwyneth finished by dispelling the myth that blondes have more fun. The naturally fair actress says in fact being golden haired can be a hindrance to your enjoyment rather than help.

“I don’t understand the whole idea of blondes having more fun. I’d say brunettes have more fun as they can go under the radar a little bit more,” she laughed. “People are just waiting for blondes to get drunk and fall down, because we’re so visible.”

[From Yahoo]

First of all, don’t you feel bad, American peasants? You are too American and peasanty to do a good smudgy eye, and Goop judges you. As for the nonsense about blondes and brunettes – it feels like another series of humble-brags, right? Like, this is how I interpreted it: “Brunettes have more fun because no one gives a crap about brunettes, everybody always pays attention to the blondes because we’re so much more interesting and sexy and you know my blonde is all-natural so that makes me better than the bottle blondes and triply better than brunettes OMG I’m so drunk.”

    I just don’t get her. She’s not pretty, her hair is limp and damaged, her career is all thanks to nepotism.. all she is is rich and skinny. I guess that’s enough for some people to think they are the sh_t.

    • Winnie says:

      this. all day long, this. never understood her appeal.

      • Dissy says:

        See. This is what happens when over indulgent parents create a narcissist bar none, they grow up thinking they are the shiz, and everyone else is like…wha? Think of all those psychos during the early auditions of American Idol who just know they are the bestest singers evaaaaah!! That’s Fishyth Paltrowich’s life.

      • PinkG says:

        She reminds me of a piece of old limp celery.

    • Amanda says:

      There is no appeal at all, her problem is that no one likes her and she’s so average that she needs to brag about herself and about things that no one cares for, so she can make herself feel special. I mean look at her life, at her face, she’s just a very sad person. Also, hair color is not important if you have presence, gwyneth doesn’t have presence, nepotism made her famous, she needs to say those things so that people might remember who she is.

      • Becky says:

        Beyonce likes her. And although may be nothing, ROBERT DOWNEY JR. does too.

      • Amanda says:

        ..And if I were you, I wouldn’t believe what celebrities say. If they’re crazy enough to say they like gwyneth, well you figure.

      • V4Real says:

        Becky even RDJ isn’t perfect. But from what I hear it”s actually her husband Chris Martin that RDJ is really cool with.

      • Ranunculus says:

        I am pretty sure RDJ gives a flying fig about gossip, LOL.

        I think she is doing promo with him in Paris very soon.

    • TeresaKansas says:

      Yes, even with tons of plastic surgery, procedures and treatments, agreed she’s plain and unnoticeable. I don’t think she has to worry about “flying under the radar”. I still think she barfs up these gems just to rub the peasants the wrong way, perhaps negative attention is better than none at all???

      • Dissy says:

        The funny thing is, her agent is Steven Huvane, who is also Jennifer Aniston’s flack (and Chelsea Handjob’s)…and though I find Goopyth insufferable, totally uninspiring and can barely stay awake for her, she’s infinitely more talented than Aniston acting wise, and I’d take her version of plain pretty over Aniston’s fugly mug any day of the week.

        Yet the flack insists on spending most of his time attaching Aniston to Brad Pitts coattails and riding that horse into the ground for going on 9 years now. She’s his cash cow.

        Goop, Hathaway (look at her rep lately) Kirsten dunst…are all sadly neglected for that tv hacktress Aniston. They kinda have to fend for themselves, at which point they promptly end up inserting foot into mouth and making people loathe them.

        Aniston’s a boring narcissist lame as well, but she gets pass after pass after pass because…Brad Pitt left her azz. All the cat ladies will support her forever more, because Angelina Jolie, beautiful Oscar winner, was next. the oprah whinng and crying, the vanity fair tell all, all perfectly played to establish victimhood. the chelsea handjob attacks of today, all perfectly placed to establish a faux catfight and bad blood inference. its genius, and its still going on 8 years later…it keeps aniston relevant, be it her nasty pals or her rival nuptials.

        Unlike Aniston, huvane’s other clients like Goop, Hathaway, etc., don’t have a beautiful fantasy tabloid rival (brad, angie or both – lol) that many women are envious of, naturally lining up to rally round the hag, I mean, Aniston. His other clients are on their own.

        He should be doing damage control on both goop and Hathaway, and yet, they’re left to fend for themselves. Meanwhile he’s getting that unknown Eddie Munster lookalike rent a companion of Aniston’s and his bald patch to write essays about his kstew skinny jeans. Hahaha

    • Sherry says:

      I totally agree! You know what else? She keeps talking about what an amazing body she has, but when I saw her sample menu on the Daily Mail for the day, I calculated she was only consuming 600 calories for the entire day! That, combined with Tracy Anderson’s cardio for 45 minutes a day and toning for another 30 minutes a day is why she’s so skinny. Not her “healthy eating” (that’s given her headaches, osteo, and cranalrectalitis).

      • TeresaKansas says:

        I don’t believe anything she claims, zero credibility with me. And she recently back-tracked on her diet claims, stating she only follows a few days a month. Impossible to be as great and wonderful as her! She’s tranparent as hell trying to boost her already mile-high ego and is only showing her deeply rooted insecurities for all to see. She has major Daddy issues and suffers from the “I’m special” disease. Plus, why does noone think she could be using adderall like many in Hwood?

      • EmmaStoneWannabe says:

        Oh but dont you know? That’s the Tracy Anderson way! Starve and then work out 1-2 hrs per day so we dont get “disaster bodies.”

        Anyway, I personally found that part about her saying she only follows that super strict diet a few times out of the year to be complete bs. She realized there was a huge backlash and was backtracking when she said that.

      • Renee says:

        A rumour circulating a few years back, was Tracy Anderson may be into the white powder.

      • TeresaKansas says:

        @Emma, she recently made similair statements immediately after hubby and kids got papped sneaking snacks, control freak that she is. Funny she cares so much the lowerlings’ perceptions of her, yet deigns to be above it all. The irony must be excrutiating, yet she keeps feeding the beast!

      • NeoCleo says:

        “cranalrectalitis” Hee! I’m stealing your word and making it mine.

      • Kloops says:



      • Stubbylove says:

        She needs a huge vagslap to shut the hell up.

    • Ginger says:

      @Gee thank you! You took the words straight out of my mouth! She is an entitled brat! Plus as a redhead I have far more fun and attention than I ever did as a blonde. She is delusional!

      • Suzeque says:

        I was a blonde, brunette and redhead at times in my life and redhead was definitely the most fun in my life! Now I’m gray and it’s not real eye catching…:-(

        Gwyneth thinks brunettes go under the radar – try telling that to Selena, Kristen, Angelina, and many other brunettes who are never under the radar.

    • Itsa Reallyme says:

      Bingo! Her hair especially bothers me. My hair person has always told me that you can tell if a person has a good diet by the quality of their hair. Goop’s hair is thin, stringy and limp. It looks so unkempt most of the time too.

      • Emily says:

        The quality of one’s hair and skin and the brightness of one’s eyes are all indicators of health. Paltrow fails at all three. Because you need to eat enough food (and that’s at least 2000 calories a day for women, more if you’re active) and not over-exercise in order to be healthy. Her psychological health is also the absolute pits; she’s wrapped up in her looks and never looks outside herself to help others, and that always shines through. She strikes me as a very unhappy person with no way out of her unhappiness, because she doesn’t know anything else.

    • cs says:

      Girl, I see the same. She’s so bland (though great style and legs). I’m sure she wanted kill herself when the LA times didn’t list her in their (50) most beautiful females in film of all times and they named Anne H, JLo, Angie and Beyonce ?? (debatable actress, singer list, Yes).. Maybe she and her other BFF (Cameron Diaz) sulked while drinking a glass of Merlot. I don’t think she realizes that she’s an average looking woman in the face with lots of money that works hard to have a model’s body.

    • Darkladi says:


    • bigt says:

      Agree. She is so white bread, boring,banal and ordinary. She is NOT a natural blonde. Here she is 25 years ago in a tv pilot called High with Zach Braff and Craig Ferguson.

    • MyCatLovesTV says:

      I thought she was beautiful in Shakespeare in Love but then wasn’t that the year of The Awful Dress at the Oscars? She always looks like a wet washrag when not made up to the nines. But she comes from Hollywood elite and has tons of money to live in her bubble. Ugh. Just ugh.

    • MyCatLovesTV says:

      I remember in the mid 90′s when she was still with Brad Pitt a magazine published nude photos of them sunning on a – I think – balcony. We girls huddled around this photo spread (for Brad) at the lunch table when it came out. Ms. Goop had no figure at all. Yeah, she was skinny but straight up and down. Her body may be “tight” as a twenty year old but bones are pretty firm. She was as far from sexy as a woman can get. So her constant bragging about her body escapes me. And we girls lost a little of our dreams when looking at Brad. But he may be a “grower” as the term goes. He didn’t show us anything. Now his body (other than that) was very nice. Maybe he just got back from a cold jump in the pool.

  2. Nina says:

    Relax, please. Duck eggs are really not so expensive when you buy them in season, on farmers market. You are not supposed to be feeding yourself same food all year round anyway. As for tuna, which is full if mercury anyway, just substitute with another, Eco-friendly, local fish with similar texture. And I have my favourite fishmonger too, it is really not so unheard of. And I go pick my apples, when in season, on a gorgeous organic farm, designed according to feng shui principles. Don’t blame her recipes, just stop mindlessly feeding yourself our of huge supermarkets and you will see her ingredients become more accessible. Rant out.

    • TeresaKansas says:

      Miss high and mighty, the only one “ranting” on this here celebrity-snark blog is you.

    • Jenny says:

      Wow. That comment was pretty shocking. So if some people don’t have money to choose between a chicken egg white and a duck egg white, we are “mindlessly feeding ourselves out* of huge supermarkets. Don’t be silly.

      • JenD says:

        At least her apples are picked from an organic farm with feng shui principles.
        :-) Total Goop-y comment.

      • EmmaStoneWannabe says:

        @ JenD – dont forget the “gorgeous.” “Gorgeous organic farm.” Bc if you pick your apples from a plain organic farm, that is simply not good enough. Surely you can easily find one aorund the corner from you that is gorgeous. Come on, get out of that supermarket!

    • red says:

      Is that you GOOP? :)

    • TeresaKansas says:

      And your comments about nutrition are ignorant and grossly misinformed as well as your mindless worship of an equally if not more ignorant and blatantly hypocritical celebrity.

    • Granger says:

      I agree. I am lucky to live near a wonderful farmer’s market, AND I have a car, so I can drive out to the country to visit an apple orchard when I want to.

      Really, though, it isn’t Gwyneth’s insistence on the importance of fresh, healthy food that bothers everyone. It’s the ridiculous boasting about her privileged lifestyle that drives us crazy! She tries to come off as someone who’s down-to-earth and approachable but talks constantly about her tight, toned body (which she has far more time than the average person to work on), her organic diet (which she has far more money than the average person to pay for), and her stellar cooking skills (which she, again, has time to hone because she has nannies, housekeepers and personal assistants to help with all of the other menial aspects of daily life).

      • NYC_girl says:


        Organic food most of the time is more expensive, at least where I live. An apple for $2?? It’s a good example of why people eat fast food – “should I spend $7 and feed my entire family for the night, or buy 4 apples instead?” It doesn’t make sense. Trying not to eat dairy but that’s the organic stuff I buy since it usually is free of hormones. I know I live in an expensive city but fresh produce is $$ everywhere, even at the Farmer’s Markets and if I go into Brooklyn or Queens. Not trying to be snarky, I’ve been unemployed for 2 years and really do try to find cheaper fresh food. Goop is part of a different stratosphere and if I pay too much attention to her I just feel like sh** about myself! ;)

      • Spooks says:

        Aaaah, the beauty to live in the country and have your own garden.

    • lambchops says:


    • Suze says:

      I won’t touch an apple out of season or one that hasn’t dropped naturally from a feng shui tree.

      Really, people.

      • EmmaStoneWannabe says:

        Excuse me. What the hell is a “feng shui” apple tree?? I prefer Granny Smith apples, that’s about the most specific I know about. And I live in the deep south. HIGHLY doubt anyone within 800 miles of here has a feng shui plant of any sort, let alone an orchard. LOL What an elitist ass!

      • susan says:

        I love that comment! You’re awesome!

      • Lulu.T.O. says:

        Totally. What is everybody’s damage? *tosses shredded hair and wobbles off on her famous sticks*

    • chi says:

      “And I go pick my apples, when in season, on a gorgeous organic farm, designed according to feng shui principles.”

      I tought the comment is an elegant sarcastic joke until the last sentence.

      Poor stupid me.

      • EmmaStoneWannabe says:

        I know me too! I was like this is funny…oh wait…poster is not kidding. SMDH

    • ycnan says:

      I think the point is to buy locally and in season, which is a very good message. Support your local farmers. I’m as guilty as the next person about not doing this. But I try when I can.

    • Daahling says:

      Amen. I REFUSE to purchase items that are not harvested during specific moon phases. And if the farm is not feng-shui designed, forget about it! I take my business elsewhere. :D

    • Cam S says:

      Everyone leave Nina alone!
      I know I personally only eat meat that baby cherubs have blessed and drink the nectar of unicorn urine. Isn’t this what everyone does?
      Nina and I can’t help it if the rest of you are anti feng shui apple orchard heathens!

    • Cherry says:

      Ladies, ladies! Don’t organically feng shui-feed the troll!

    • jamie says:

      Feng shui apples? Is this for real?

    • Sweet Dee says:

      Honestly, if you’re stupid enough to pay more for some feng shui apples, your musings on nutrition are irrelevant. Full-fat BS, is what it is.

    • Ag says:

      @”Nina” – Goop? Is that you?

    • Rachel R says:

      If you’re being serious, I have this to say to you: yes, eating healthfully is not as expensive as it is often made out to be, and there are ways to feed yourself and your family on a budget that are very health conscious, though it takes more effort. That said, not everyone lives somewhere with access to a farmer’s market, or a feng-shui apple orchard (made me snort). Some people only have access to big retail supermarkets, and have to make due with what they can buy there or grow at home. Get off your high and mighty, and realize that attitudes like yours are what make some people think that healthy eating is only for the effete.

      • Nina says:

        Feng Shui principles of designing spaces. Increasingly used to supplement organic and biodynamic farming…Reading comments properly requires reading comprehension and minimum general knowledge. And access to healthy, natural food sources is a consideration in choice of place to live. GP’s privilege is in not having to make choices. Us “regular people” do need to make the choices and pay the price for the choices we made. I don’t have big house or more kids than I can afford but eat well, travel and exercise and don’t blame anyone for reminding me of price of choices I made. Many others made same choices. Take charge of your life and improve it instead of being envious and negative.

      • Aagje says:

        Are you seriously suggesting that people should take into consideration what food-resources they have near to help decide on where to live?

        Jesus christ, you really are a Goop in disguise…

      • videli says:

        As the daughter of fruit trees/grapes growers, with a lot of respect for the work and craft entailed by this occupation, I have this to say: Ha! (read: My ass!). Efficient cross-pollination? Yes! Feng-shui principles? Somebody successfully made fun of you, I think.

      • Sweet Dee says:

        To add to videli’s comment…
        As a chemist, daughter of a certified Feng Shui expert (eyeroll), and the fiance of a soil ecologist, I can confidently and concretely tell you that you are being taken for an idiot by your farmer. All that crap you transcribed from his pamphlet is pseudo-science BS. You don’t even understand what “biodynamic” means, clearly.

        Take it from someone who shops at farmer’s markets and eats well. Seriously, you’re wasting your money.

        Also, has it ever occurred to you that some people don’t have enough money to move somewhere without a job? Get real honey, you’re in fantasyland.

      • Suze says:

        OK, Nina, I snarked on your feng shui orchard. That was probably mean, and I’ll let it go.

        But I did it out of CONCERN for you.

        Because I do live near natural, healthy food sources – I live in a deep rural area, it’s just about all we do here, grow things – and I have to say that the farmers here would fall over themselves laughing if I mentioned feng shui-ing the crops.

        If you are paying extra for apples from a gorgeous feng shui orchard for any reason outside of the fact that you find it pretty, then you are wasting your money. Seriously. That has nothing to do with nutrition.

      • MyCatLovesTV says:

        Reading all this is making my head spin. I live in a large city with a large population of elderly and working (and at present) non-working poor. In many neighborhoods there isn’t even a “big box” grocery store within ten miles much less some fancy schmancy organic paradise. These people take buses when they can afford it and often are forced to shop at local convenience stores or little markets with little choice. Feng Shui options? Give me a break. Now most of us here have more options than that but are still having to struggle a little harder in this economy to keep body and soul together. The “haves” will never understand the “have nots” I suppose but they should at least have the decency to STFU with their arrogant “I’m so much better than you look what I can eat” crappola.

    • Isla says:

      Hi Goopy!

      Just keep on being as fabulous and poopy as always.

      Just a Peasant and Supermarket Frequenter

      • Nina says:

        To “sweet dee” and co. – i can’t stress enough the importance of reading just what is written and not making assumptions. I keep on telling it to my grad students too…it is natural human reaction, to read what is convenient. I never said that the apples from my favourite orchard came at a premium or that principles of the design were advertised by the producer. It was just to illustrate that personally, I relate to GP’s mindfulness about sourcing and consuming her meals. Don’t get hung up on details, ladies: they make you miss all the fun. :) and please please learn how to read critically.

      • C.Lynn says:


        What an incredibly arrogant assumption on your part that you assume just because someone doesn’t agree with you that it’s because they can’t read critically. We’re not a bunch of under educated rubes here.

        You’re not the only one on this blog that has letters after their name, nor are you the only one who has taught at a university.

        If you are the grand dame of critical thinking, you would not have been so gullible as to swallow all that B.S. about your feung shui orchard.

        I feel sorry for your students.

      • Sweet Dee says:


        I do not for a second believe you are a professor, but you’re right. We all saw “feng shui orchard” and made a ton of assumptions.

        Assumptions like…you believe BS pseudo-science feng shui can improve APPLES.

        For crying out loud, apples are grown using clones! Every Gala apple tree on earth is a clone of one single tree, because no two apple seeds grow the same tree. Same with Granny Smiths, same with Fuji and so on. Placing them closer together, further apart, or in the “Health and Happiness” section of the plot changes nothing.

        Things that affect your apples include: pesticides/chemicals, climate, altitude, soil quality, and invasive species. That is all.

        So please, pardon me if I laugh at your notion of “reading critically” when you appear to gladly buy the pseudo-science that tells you your feng shui organic apples are any different from other organic apples. It would require critical thinking to know better.

      • videli says:

        OK, this is snarky Tuesday for me: Nina, don’t tell your students about the orchard. Or the fishmonger. Grad students can be very cruel.

      • Nina says:

        Hmm….GP admitted in interviews to being strict Macro and then becoming more relaxed about it while still sticking to the main principles. Which makes it – relaxed macro, I suppose? And yes, I’ve been familiar w macro for nearly a decade: books, courses, kushi institute retreat etc…Calling someone an idi*ot is kind of trashy though, isn’t it? And to clarify, for the geniuses who still did not get it: i noticed that my favourite orchard appears to be aligned according to feng-shui principles, which made it more fun for me to go there pick apples. That’s all there is to it. It did not call for Grade 2 botany lectures, bizarre ramblings or bigotry. I’m sorry if “fancy words” get you so excited. Go for a run and munch on an apple instead, won’t you?

    • RocketMerry says:

      Agreed, brin, but let’s re-read that sentence:
      “brunettes have more fun as they can go under the radar a little bit more”

      Now isn’t that just such an awesomely fake-humble, fake-complimenting, bitchy and mean turn of phrase?!
      I applaud her falseness. Actually, I slow clap it, with a nod.

      • Diana says:

        Right?! this b1tch! so brunnetes are just so plain and poor little blondes for standing out so much. PLEASE! Goop, let me give my epic side eye.

      • Becky1 says:

        Her comments about the blonde/brunette thing are particularly silly as her “real” hair color is light brown. I’ve seen photos of her before she became famous when she was in her late teens/early twenties and she had light brown hair. It didn’t look colored or highlighted-it looked like the kind of light brown hair that you have naturally.

        Like many people, maybe she was blonde as a child but her hair got darker by the time she reached later childhood and adolescence.

  5. Sisi says:

    To be brutally honest: she looks like shit in the Max Factor smudgy eye commercial. As if she applied greasy mascara with her toes. Cool vibe my ass…

    • Tiffany says:

      Agree. It makes me wonder if she said something to piss off Pat McGrath because I was shocked to learn they were working together.

    Oh goodness. When quickly scanning the first page, I honestly thought “Another Dog the Bounty Hunter post?” and then realized…nope, Gwenyth. Something about that bottle blonde made my eyes go wonky for a moment. And it most definitely is not her natural color – her real hair color is light brown, very similar to my own.

    She’s full of herself isn’t she? Go away, woman!

  10. Tessa says:

    So, basically, blondes are prettier and people look at them more? She didn’t even try to hide her backhanded bitchiness there, my word.

    • Nanea says:

      I wonder if she has ever looked at people like Audrey Hepburn, Elizabeth Taylor, Isabella Rossellini, Inès de la Fressange, Monica Bellucci, Marion Cotillard.

      Gwynsufferable isn’t fit to hold a candle to them.

      • Mrs. Darcy says:

        I agree, I am trying very hard not to say mean things about her hideous yellow hair (oops). She just has no filter, and truly seems to think her off the cuff remarks are down to earth, even when inadvertently insulting the majority of the population who do not bleach their hair (I am not snarking on hair dye, I dye and highlight my own hair, but I would never draw attention to my hair if it looked like hers). She just sets herself up time and time again, displaying her UES NY whitebread patrician aspirations. Puh lease spare us Gwyneth. And 40 year old women trying to look rock chick are tragic, sorry. (I’m 38 I should know!)

      • Red32 says:

        Right? If Adriana Lima and Gwyneth Paltrow walk into a room, which one is more likely to “fly under the radar?”

      • Adrien says:

        @Nanea – and Angelina Jolie

    • Sweet Dee says:

      I can’t help but wonder if she is behind all of Beyonce’s god-awful blonde wigs lately. “MMMReally, Bey, you should go blonde straw and never look back!”

  11. marie says:

    and now begins the “Punchable Paltrow” portion of interviews.

    everyone knows your hair is not naturally blonde Gwynnie. I think the peroxide fumes are starting to invade her brain.

    • V4Real says:

      That’s it I’m putting this beyotch on her ass. Let’s see if I fly under the radar when I sneak her ass from behind.

      Hoya-chick meet downtown NY April 29th. Let’s do this!

      Do she think that we really don’t remember when her hair used to be darker. Look at those old audition tapes of actors/actresses that are being auctioned off.

  12. LadyMTL says:

    As a natural brunette, all I can say is that I am glad that Her Royal Highnass Gwyneth is not one of us.

    • Poink517 says:


    • stellalovejoydiver says:

      As a fellow brunette I so agree. Also blonde distracts from your facial features which benefits Goop because she is very plain looking.

      • Lulu.T.O. says:

        She’s got decent bone structure, I’ll give her that. But my God, is she serious about that hair?? It looks like my 8 year old daughter’s hair after a summer of swimming in heavily chlorinated pools (minus the green tinge).

    • littlestar says:

      I’m a brunette as well, and I don’t understand her comment that we can go unnoticed. When I hair down and styled (it’s half way down my back), I get a lot of attention. Men seem to like brunettes, other women will compliment me on my hair. I’m not saying I’m amazing looking or anything, but shiny healthy brunette hair can be very striking and noticeable.

    • Lady D says:

      As a natural blonde, I am beyond disgusted with her ignorant, backhanded comment. I used to successfully just ignore her, never bothered reading articles or commenting on her, now I actively dislike her. Arrogance really rubs me the wrong way, I tend to try and bring the arrogant back down to earth with the rest of us. She reminds me of Falkor. Same ignorant, unfiltered mouth and delusions of beauty. Pathetic Paltrow.

  13. lisa2 says:

    Hollywood is full of blonds. And the vast majority of them are not that interesting. Maybe that is her problem.

    • j.eyre says:

      As a brunette living in LA, I can promise you, blondes do not stand out in these parts. Which is not a cut to blondes, who I find equally as attractive as all other hair types.

      And I am getting a great mental image of her look here, a conservative blonde businesswoman with deep red (harlot?) lips but undone, messy, edgy eyes eating duck eggs while throwing down bad mutha rap lyrics? And then she smokes her eyes up a bit to go out – hasn’t she done enough to those poor things?

      I would love to be opposite her in a boardroom. It may have been a few years but this low-flying, brunette with a cohesive look would dig my teeth into this one.

  14. Maria says:

    Her hair looks so severely damaged.

    Her privilege, or rather, need to boast about it is annoying.

  15. Brown says:

    Don’t mind me if I just tune her out. I’m not super interested in taking lifestyle tips from her.

    1. She shills diet/health advice, yet has zero financial restrictions when it comes to purchasing the best ingredients, and ALSO has vitamin deficiencies. Seems legit.

    2. She shills skin care advice, yet without makeup, her skin looks like a catcher’s mitt from all the sun damage.

    3. She talks about her awesome hair, but I honestly stand by the fact that her hair is some of the most over-processed, damaged hair I’ve ever seen. Celebrity or not.

    Again…. don’t mind if I tune her out.

  16. Lauren says:

    Oh no this b!$&h did NOT just say that brunettes have more fun because they’re basically “invisible”!!! *seething*

  17. Sophie says:

    The bit that most confuses me is when she talks about how much she loves a strong red lip. Ummmm… I don’t think I have EVER once seen Goopy wear a red lip. Why does this bug me so much?? And I actually kind of like her ridiculous out-of-touch ways.

  18. Ellie66 says:

    Oh Gwennie :( u are so out of touch and so in need of moisture.

  19. moon says:

    Chris, when you’ve finally found the balls to admit to the public that you’re sick of the Goop, I am always here waiting for you


  20. Hubbahun says:

    For the love of God, Gwyn, shut the eff up! (and call me evil but my first reaction to the blond/brunette thing was ‘Oh so, Chris has been knocking off a brunette then?’). Oh and Goop, the London undone dark eye thing is called not having a make up artist on call 24/7 and, y’know, having actually to work and stuff.

  21. SydneySpy says:

    Every time she opens her mouth she proves once again what an idiot she is, further demonstrating that fame and riches are not the equivalent of talent or intellect. Gwennyth, do yourself a huge favour: Just shut up.

  22. JL says:

    This brunette has more fun because she keeps her F’n mouth shut and doesn’t piss everyone off.

    I guess Angelina Jolie, Halle Berry etc are so relieved to be brunettes! Poop (no that’s not a misspelling – it’s her new moniker – she earned it) wishes she got the coverage they do.

    Does Pompous Ass ring a bell?

  23. Chelsea's handler says:

    Paltrow is too banal for me to get worked up over her

    • Ann says:

      I feel the same way; I don’t know why people get so worked up over the moronic stuff she says.

  24. Daahling says:

    Funny, Angelina is never asked about blondes versus brunettes. Her conversations involve film work, philanthropy, and not about vanity. Gwyneth, oy vey. Who talks like this?! Why does she always sound so anti-women? You wanna chow down on duck eggs IN SEASON mind you, then go for it. Please don’t try to pit lovely blondes and brunettes against each other. Ugh. This one….

    • Kate says:

      I wonder what would happen if these two were in the same room together now (I know they were in a movie together a million years ago with Jude Law, but that was before Brangelina). AJ is skinnier (too skinny, IMO) and prettier than GP. And seems way less likely to care about any of the crap GP does. Hmm.

      • Daahling says:

        Angelina would probably have a face reaction that expresses “Wow, I just returned from developing a girls’ school in a war torn country, and I continue to bring awareness to the tragedies of many parts of the world because I genuinely care, and I know others do as well. Please, tell me more about your recipe for um, avocado on gluten-free what was it? Interestiiiiing.”

      • Renee says:

        Since Gwynnie only sorrounds herself with people of her caliber, pretentious phony suckups like herself, that would never happen. As one has a mission to help/feed the downtrodden and unfortunate, while the other one is bent on exalting/feeding her already bloating ego. Yep, I’m sure Angie would want to wring her neck.

      • Adrien says:

        Funny enough, Angelina Jolie has an understated fashion sense (all black, no frills, etc.) and has an emaciated look yet I find her more desirable than Gwyneth.

    • Renee says:

      Brilliant observation! Ty!

    • lama says:

      Well they both pretentious assholes…

      • Hubbahun says:

        +1, although I will acknowledge that Angie does actually contribute to the world, unlike Goop.

  25. Kerfuffles says:

    She has become positively insufferable.

  26. Jess says:

    I don’t know who sourced the prices for the ingredients, but they must have gone looking for the most expensive grocery store ever. For the most part, the book is just full of things like veggies and legumes and bits and pieces you can easily get cheap at asian grocery stores. The fish could be exxy depending on where you buy from, but red meat can also be wildly exxy if you care at all about where you buy from.

    Duck eggs are pretty cheap if you have a half decent farmers market near you (and very cheap if you can go to the markets in London). They’re only a little more expensive than proper free range chicken eggs and if you find someone with plenty of the things they’re actually cheaper.

    If you don’t have the exact salt or the exact olive oil GOOP uses, you can still make the recipe and just use whatever you have in the pantry. Do you think Jamie Oliver and Nigella are using cheap butter, table salt, dried herbs instead of real deal etc. in their home cooking? Hell no. But people manage to adapt the recipe’s to suit their finances/what they have in their cupboards.

    I feel like whoever worked out the prices basically did this:
    A pinch of salt = the largest box of organic pink salt available
    A splash of olive oil = 15 litres of the most virgin olive oil possible
    A handful of basil = soil, a pot, fertilizer and seeds to grow basil
    3 organic apples = as much fuel as it takes to drive to an organic apple farm

    Which is ridiculous.

    I don’t even care for GOOP, but the way people jump on every little thing as a way of showing she’s out of touch is just overkill. I read her first cookbook, and I’ve seen a big chunk of the recipes in this one, and it’s all pretty basic healthy food. Nothing unusually expensive for a book of it’s type, of which there are many. It’s not super cheap, but if you have spare money to spend on celebrity cookbooks you’re not exactly struggling and presumably you have an interest in food so are willing to prioritize it.

    • sheresse says:

      This is a “celebrity snark blog”, do you know what that is? Or did you get lost on your way to Martha Stewart Living?

      • Louisa says:

        Freakin hysterical! The people who are trying prove that gwinnie isn’t totally living in a bubble- stop it. She and other celebrities put themselves out there for this. It is part of the job to be commented on and potentially criticized. If you want to change people’s opinions that she is a completely narcissistic human then you are so in the wrong place!

      • bob says:

        She does have a fair point, though. Goop is ridiculous enough without having to exaggerate.

    • Daahling says:

      I see your point, but she is marketing towards American peasants who don’t exactly have boxes of organic, free trade certified pink sea salt on hand LOL Duck eggs are not really prevalent here in the US–maybe in some parts, but at the pretty fancy grocery store I visit, duck and ostrich eggs there are not. :)

      She’s just fun to pick on–have a little fun!

      • maitri says:

        I have himalayan pink salt and the company is a small i think fair trade to boot-and i just got a bag at the healthfood store near my house, or order it on amazon when you are downloading i tunes…it costs like 6 bucks for a pretty large bag, and you don’t use much b/c it’s strong….

        Honestly, ppl you can get a lot of this stuff on amazon these days, with free shipping.
        She is obnoxious and insufferable-but i agree that all the nit picking is not coming off as a very good argument against her.

        I’m sure most (i said most, not all) of you who are bitching about how you cannot afford an organic apple, probably have a budget for MANY other lifestyle choices, that would also be considered luxury by a large part of the world’s population. Lifestyle priorities are a subjective choice, for nearly anyone reading this blog.

        She is out of touch. But every item people are criticizing, is not an example of that out of touchness…..

    • Nina says:

      This. And don’t forget that duck eggs are much bigger than chicken eggs too. GP eats essentially “relaxed-macro-meet-100-mile” diet. Lots of people eat like this.

      • Suze says:

        How could I forget something I didn’t know?

        There are no duck eggs at my farmer’s market, alas. Or big boxes of pink salt.

        Perhaps where you live lots of people eat like this, but I’m not familiar with anyone around here who does. Of course, we are probably not GOOP’s target market.

        We do have lots of ducks flying around, though. Maybe I should peek into their nests and see what’s up.

    • decorative item says:

      It’s not so much what she says that gets people worked up, but how she says it. I have a friend who has a similar issue. As a result she has been fired from EVERY job she has EVER had. She just can’t help but offend people even though she means well.
      People don’t dislike G.P. because she is so supper duper beautiful and intelligent, they dislike her because she has foot-in-mouth disease causing her to continuously offend people. Proof in point…this thread.

      • Ranunculus says:

        I am sure she isn’t nearly as offensive as the majority of the people posting here. Even though this is a gossip board, I find it quite fascinating (and sad) that people’s opinions can easily be swayed by opinionmakers. But whatever, I am sure Goopy is fine, her cook book seems to be selling … and she gets a suit to kick some ass in Iron Man 3!

    • Esmom says:

      Agree. She’s not doing anything Martha Stewart hasn’t been doing for over a decade.

      • GByeGirl says:

        Right–and Martha was teased and lampooned in comedy/satire as well. But guess what? Martha has a sense of humor and doesn’t try to tell us how beautiful she is all the time.

      • Sara says:

        I’m sorry but Martha Stewart has never uttered the nonsense Paltrow says. Martha just comes off as bitchy, but Paltrow truly is idiotic. DA duck-egg omelet? I shop at Whole Foods and I’ve never come across duck eggs lol….

    • GByeGirl says:

      I don’t actually think that she is harmless though. She promotes cleanses, which are unhealthy. She eschews ingredients which are otherwise healthy in people who do not have sensitivities. She is business partners with a woman who has financially screwed over tons of people and also promotes an unhealthy exercise/diet regime and engages in body shaming. Her disingenuous and uber restrictive food issues can be damaging to her children, physically and emotionally. Her recipes seem so out of reach and difficult to noob cooks that attempting to cook will seem just too time consuming and expensive to even attempt.

    • meggie says:

      I agree. I looked at the book in the store expecting to be flabbergasted at the exotic ingredients/ridiculous lists and instructions and found…nothing crazy. And food that actually looked halfway decent. The recipes called for things like canned beans. Canned beans. I bought the book, I don’t give a damn what anybody thinks, the recipes stood the test, as did the layout of the book. I think people just really can’t stand her, and this was an opportunity to pick her apart. There is no way it would cost $300 a day. Browse through the book the next time you’re at B&N, you’ll see what I mean.

  27. Scarlet Vixen says:

    Funny, that’s how us redheads think of blondes.

    • Renee says:

      Um, speak for yourself please. I’m a readhead and I’ve never thought that, redheads get enough hate ty very much. All colors/types are beautiful and it’s the person inside sets it off.

      • Scarlet Vixen says:

        Um, calm down. It was meant to be funny. If you didn’t notice I said US redheads (and I spelled it correctly…). Whether you want to admit it or not, redheads are more ‘visible’–way more than blondes, even. Only about 3% of the entire world’s population has red hair. I have naturally red hair–like, glows in the dark bright red hair–who always wanted to blend in and couldn’t. I remember think I was better off going to dimly lit clubs because I mistakenly thought I passed for brunette if it was dark. Nope–people could still tell I was a redhead, and redhead fetishists get old really fast.

  31. Dawn says:

    She doesn’t bring out the snark in me the way some so called celebrities do. She was born rich and doesn’t have a clue how she would live without the benefit of money. That being said I find her harmless and full of herself! And that’s about it.

    I think she’s headed for a mental breakdown soon. Her delusion can’t last for too long.

  41. annaloo. says:

    We’re not peasants and Paltrow is part of the problem. People like her should have the smallest pedestal possible because they do not bring anything except envy, comparison and feelings of inadequacy to the mmasses. There are better celebrities to support or follow than those that still practice the shallow and vain upbringing they enjoyed from a life of privilege. At first it was funny, but the vitriol against her comes from a vein that she taps: the person with a superiority complex- and no one needs anyone like that in her life.

    • spinner says:


    • Louisa says:

      Yes but truly she LIKES to inspire these bad feelings in us. Our envy, comparison and inadequacy are what makes her feel good about herself and is why she “tries” to help poor unfortunate us. Everything she does is to cement within herself how really and truly different and special she is. She is like one of those “friends” that superficially tries to comfort you but is really gloating inside that you are inferior to her. She will never let us see her hurt by her husband as she will be as miserable as hell but turn that misery into more workouts to prove she is still top dog. The biggest compliment to her is our jealousy. It’s what drives her.

      • annaloo. says:

        I absolutely 100% agree with you — but you and I and anyone else who do not fit her mold of perfection are not here on this earth for her to get off on feeling superior to, you know? WE should refuse to give her that. She is a product of privilege, using private girls school catty-bullying and THAT’S the TRUE energy she’s spreading everywhere.. not this ‘healthy’ wholesome lifestyle. She’s not TRULY GENUINE in wanting to help PEOPLE (“People” means everyone, not just those who can financially afford it)– She irritates so many people for a reason. Because she’s not sincere about spreading a message of health, and because we see through her sham of superiority, and it’s tiresome. I want my world of everyday heroines and true sincerity back.

        For all the expensive lux goods she surrounds and exalts herself with, she is CHEAP ON GRACE.

    • Mrs. Darcy says:

      I partly agree, but it is a fact that she is hard to avoid and therefore more annoying than many others in her orbit – she is pushing herself as a blogging super doyenne, a master chef, a blow dry chain owner (curly hair the horror! how does she put up with Chris?!), and a fitness guru. If someone as priveleged as she is is continually putting themselves forward as an arbiter of taste, and has the gall to only include exclusive, exhorbitantly priced products to the masses in the current economy, they are behaving in an ignorant and borderline offensive way imo.

      • annaloo. says:

        You are so right! And if she chooses to push this stuff on to us, if this is the choice she makes with her power of celebrity….I am more than happy to push her back. Hard.

    • Emily says:

      But I don’t envy her. I pity her. I’d take her bank account, but if that went with anything else in her life — literally anything, from her marriage to her looks to her “career” to especially her teeny little empty brain — I’d say no thank to the millions. She’s just a really pathetic person.

      • annaloo. says:

        I don’t think her money is a problem, personally. There are plenty of people in this world who are extremely wealthy who do not feel the need to belittle or isolate others because of their fortunes. Something about Gwyneth is horribly off and it will tell on her later. Maybe then she’ll realize that being down to earth and empathetic is not such a bad place or way to be.

  42. danielle says:

  48. LadyL says:

    Her mother is an unrepentant snob and passed on that ugliness to her daughter. A now deceased radio host here in NYC (the always entertaining Lynn Samules) related her personal experiences with the loathsome Blythe Danner-they attended the same college at the same time. This apple didn’t fall far from the haughty family tree.

    • anneesezz says:

      My mom worked at a college with someone who went to the fancy Manhattan school with Gwyneth and she said she was a total mean girl. She made fun of girl’s clothes and hair, etc. I can imagine it’s true. Now that I am older I realize that those people are really just very insecure and want to point out other people’s flaws to detract attention from their own flaws. She is an ugly person indeed.

      • Lady L says:

        That’s of course when she bothered to attend class. You may recall the Paltrow family lived in California until Madame Danner decided it was urgent her children have an proper east coast education. What a waste of $$$. I’m so happy the family has finally returned to its natural environs.

      • annaloo. says:

        I believe this. I have a friends who was at Spence (a few years behind Gwynnie) and said her academic performance was not strong. Maybe she’s felt the need to overcompensate for not being a brain… who knows.

    • Lemony says:

      Oh no, I am bummed to hear that….I’ve always loved Blythe Danner as an actress but admit I’ve never known much about her as a real person. Seeing how nutso her daughter has turned up has made me wonder what her mother was like…..

    • Details please! says:

      I believe this and have seen Danner in person and she is rude as hell. But I’d love to hear more about Bard.

  49. Ali says:

    I’m confused. Is she pretending she’s a natural blonde? Has she actually deluded herself into believing she’s a natural blonde? Is she confusing herself with Chris Martin’s other wife? I don’t understand.

  52. Mango says:

    Hahahaha….I always thought she wasn’t as bad (vapid, narcissistic, entitled, passive-aggressive) as other posters here thought but the blonde/ brunette comment is the straw that broke the back of my denial!

    • OhDear says:

      Yeah, I always thought she was more dorky than bitchy, but what a backhanded humblebrag comment this (Paltrow’s, not yours) is!

  53. normality says:

    I’ve tried to defend her in the past (her acting has some high points, she seems nice and harmless enough, etc), but she is really starting to grate. I love how celebrities say passive-aggressive compliments to their audience. So insightful. So annoying. Most of them don’t have an education large enough to even understand the psychological issues they’re clearly portraying. I’d roll my eyes but I worry they’d get stuck in the back of my head…

  54. BooBooLaRue says:

    The thing about PALTRY (yes, intentional misspelling) is she is so dumb and talentless, you can’t help but want to make fun of her…but she does give us blondes a bad name.

  55. lucy says:

    Funny. She’s one to talk. She’s a total eyesore.

    I think what she might mean is that since she is a natural brunette she knows how much fun she used to have before she became yellow-stringy-haired? I’m being generous here.

  56. Zombie Shortcake says:

    She and Rimes should get together and interview each other.

  58. Zimmer says:

    Umm, I am hardly perfectly happy with my life and sure I’d love to have your wealth, Gwynnie. However, when I read all the stuff that comes out of your mouth, I’d have to rethink that. What I mean is, you seem like you are more desperate for love than 90 percent of the average Joes out there. All you come across as is a desperate selfloathing person who feels she has to proove herself to some imaginary figure in order to gain their love and respect. You’re really sad.

  59. JenniferJustice says:

    Wow! First off, she’s not a natural blonde by any means. She is a brunette, so if she really thought blonde’s have it rought, she’d stop bleaching her hair. I agree w/everybody else’s eye rolls. She is insufferable. I do think she is a tabented actress and that’s it. What is it with actors & actresses now having to get their fingers in all this other stuff? I don’t care what you eat. I don’t care where you shop. Just make me beleive you’re the character you’re playing on the screen in that moment and leave it at that.

    I do hate when people act like b/c i ‘eat healthy’ [their words; i consider it just eating actual food that i personally like and feel better eating, and i've been doing this for over 20 years before it was trendy]….anyway, ppl act like i am pretentious or otherwise out of touch.And, I don’t even go out of my way to mention it or anything-just if they come over and I am cooking or eating or offer them something i’ve made….

    I think some of these ppl use it as an excuse for why they cannot or will not make changes for themselves.
    Yes, all organic may be prohibitive, but integrating more grains, more vegetables, less fast food, is something most people and families can do. my spouse only makes 45k per year and we live in southern CA. we struggle, b/c i stay home with kid, we drive old cars, rent, etc. but we eat food food and take good supplements. It IS effort to do this, but works for us.

    I just wish it was not a black or white issue and that I was not judged. I don’t make this choice b/c i’m ‘supposed to eat healthy b/c everyone says so’. I do it b/c it’s natural for me to do so and I would be sick all the time if I ate otherwise….
    yea, my kid has soda and fast food sometimes; i hate microwaves but we have one currently in our unit so i use it.
    I just think it works both ways-sure, goopy types and some others are condescending and pretentious and judgy, but others are the same towards those who ‘eat healthy’ in their minds.
    Just focus on yourself and not use excuses. Even whole foods has their ’365′ brand, which is comparable to the big grocery chains, in my experience. Eating packaged food is REALLY expensive, but if you cook the food [another task that is difficult to have time for, i know], then you can shop at WF or even trader joe’s has a lot of organic foods now that are quick to cook.
    whatever. It’s a choice to some extent-w/in your budget, most people have a choice. NOT everyone, but MOST people….
    Regardless, goop is lame; i kind of hate her now. when she first began acting, i thought she was beautiful and a good actress. did not expect her to go down this obnoxious road. he hair is horried. Cut your hair, goopy!

      The one thing I envy about California is the regular availability of fresh fruit and veg made possible by the climate and hard work of the people of the Imperial Valley.
      We on the east coast only get seasonal access to the cheaper and healthier options sold at the greenmarkets.
      It doesn’t have to be all junk food or expensive organic produce. I whole-heartedly agree.

    • Suze says:

      There is a huge middle ground here, and I’m sure you fall into it. It’s good to make healthy choices, and you shouldn’t feel that you have to defend your choices to anyone, least of all to those of us on a snark site.

      You’re not being ridiculous at all – but GOOP! is.

      And the feng shui orchard post was just too easy to pass up, snark-wise.

  63. truthful says:

    she looks crazy and harried as hell, SMDH.

    her sunglasses are cocked, her legs are going inwards…she truly needs to stop talking about the physical aspects of a person.

    cause she looks dry and brittle 24/7 and has NO room to talk.

  65. mar says:

    who is buying into this twat? Can she go away?

  66. Miss M says:

    GOOP is so hard to like you when you make comments like these ones…

  67. mkyarwood says:

    She looks like crap. However! I have at home food stuff access. Eggs. Fruit. Veg. By doing it myself, I can afford to eat well. Duck eggs too! We are NOT rich. Ha. It’s always a ‘water or mortgage’ month for us. But we know that in the long run, pouring a lot of our resources into food instead of tv or cars (don’t yell at me, we don’t value them) pays off in the long run.

  68. Sara says:

    She needs to eat an organic grass fed hamburger and some egg yolks. Girl’s face is too thin and this is what happens as you get older and are obsessed about being thin. Your face shows it big time. She needs to put on at least 15 pounds imo. Also, that bleachy, stringy, fried hair; is that supposed to be a trend nowadays? I just don’t get her.

  69. Emily says:

    My god she’s stupid.

  70. sdgirl says:

    I would pay to see someone in a live interview ask her something like this: “So if you or any other ‘natural blonde” were to walk into a room with Angelina Jolie – you mean to say that Angelina Jolie would go unnoticed but you wouldn’t?” or something to that effect! :) Would love to see her response and her reaction to a question like that!

  71. Ms.Martin says:

    Tell that to Megan Fox ,Sophia Vergara et al…..she really needs to stuff some goop in her mouth …. Whatever keeps her from talking……l

  72. Meggin says:

    That is such a stupid comment. I can think of about a hundred brunette actresses that people would notice first if they walked into a room the same time as her. She’s very plain jane and not that pretty! Hair color has nothing to do with it.

  73. Savina says:

    Goop needs to get the organic stick out of her ass.

  74. Marybel says:

    Fishsticks has no sex appeal (except maybe Jay-Z, please please). She’s just a skinny hag with brittle bottle hair.

  75. Christin says:

    I can think of numerous actresses that look better and are (1) not blonde and (2) older than Goop. Photoshop is clearly Goop’s friend, judging by these photos.

  76. Cody says:

    This is one of my favorite quotes that would describe Goop’s narcissistic personality

    “I like to be admired from afar, and then complimented up close.”
    Gena Showalter, The Darkest Seduction

  77. BostonianTraveler says:

    She should just let her roots grow out and have a grand time.

  78. Vera says:

    You know, I’m starting to admire her talent for clueless, passive aggressive bitchiness and narcissism.

  79. Adrien says:

    Gwyneth was quite likable and respectable when she appeared on Glee with dark hair.

  80. Ravensdaughter says:

    What an egomaniac. obnoxious thing to say. So, I guess brunettes and redheads are undesirable. Yes, see hot stars listed above!
    Goop has just hit the red zone with me. Please, Goop, just stay home and conjure up your goofy lifestyle recommendations and untested (in terms of dietary viability) recipes…
    Amazing that Chris Martin has put up with her for so long. I am sure (I think even Angelina haters concede this) that Brad Pitt knows he dodged a bullet…

  81. paranormalgirl says:

    But what of the gingers like me? Who will think of the gingers?????

  82. Moi says:

    Well stop bleaching your hair then Goopy. Those roots look a little closer to brunette than blonde to me.

    I remember a story going around about her being on a talk show and mentioning some particular type of shoe she liked and was unable to find more of them. Some guy that owned a shoe store that carried them saw the show and contacted her agent. Supposedly Goopy had a hissy fit that the guy wouldn’t just give them to her because she was a celebrity and should get them for free.

    I think she’s an awful actress and she’s always hawking something these days.

  83. mstaken says:

    Oh, Gwynnie, if only you could see yourself the way we see you, you’d shut the hell up..

  84. Laurie says:

    I can tell you for fact that Gwyneth Paltrow is not a natural blonde. Her natural, hair color is sandy light brown….at least it was about 25 years ago when the NY police drove her teenage butt home in a police car and deposited her on her parent’s doorstep. That being said, she would look SO much better with a really light beachy brown/dark blonde haircolor and a modern bob. In fact, she sported a long bob a while back and it looked really good…apart from the overprocessed color, over-straight ironing and the aging center part. As it is, though, she looks limp. Her hair. Her body. Her personality. Just one big limp noodle.
