Gwyneth Paltrow thinks walking the red carpet with her hubby is “cheesy”

Although there were rumors that Gwenyth Paltrow and her husband Chris Martin would walk the red carpet hand-in-hand at this year’s Grammys (something she claimed she would never do), Chris was decidedly alone in front of the cameras. Well, Gwyn has revealed one of the reasons she refuses to do press with her husband: it’s “cheesy.”

So, why don’t Oscar winner Gwyneth Paltrow and Grammy winner Chris Martin of the group Coldplay take pictures together or walk down red carpets as a couple?

“It’s cheesy,” Gwyneth laughed when we talked about this big controversy backstage at the Grammy Awards on Sunday night. When we ran into each other she’d just come off stage wearing a hot silver lame mini skirt. But she was also not with Martin, who was busy with Coldplay winning a Best Song Grammy for “Viva La Vida.”

“I mean, who wants to live like that?” Gwyneth said. She knows of what she speaks. Paltrow clearly doesn’t want a hot button celebrity life like former flame Brad Pitt and Angelina, aka Brangelina. There’s no “Chriswyneth” or “Gwis” in her future.

Gwyneth and Chris have the potential to be a huge power couple. What she doesn’t seem to understand is that they could have a public relationship without it turning into another Brangelina lovefest: think of Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick, or Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner. Both of these couples are public with their affections, but don’t let the press get out of control.

I do understand where she’s coming from. Some couples are all over each other and no one wants to see that. But it’s possible to keep their relationship low-key without making Gwyneth look frigid. Where are her PR people?

Holding hands is “cheesy”? I would think she would want to share her time in the spotlight with the person she loves. Maybe she’s just too GOOPy for that.

    What about ‘Trowplay? Maybe they just haven’t found the right moniker yet…you never can tell with these picky, fickle kids nowadays.

  2. ER says:

    The more I read about her the more I dislike her. She’s really becoming annoying.

  3. Baholicious says:

    ER, I’ve wondered, are those candy corn in your gravatar?

  4. Judy says:

    What she is too good to hold her hubbys hand on a red carpet?? She makes me ill besides calling her kid a fruit,she has her head up her ass like she is something special.

  5. Maritza says:

    God forbid Chris steals the spotlight from her! This woman is so annoying with her microbiotic diet and sky high heels, plus her stupid comments! How can walking the red carpet with her husband be cheesy? She should be proud, he is quite handsome.

  6. neelyo says:

    Wasn’t she supposed to retire? For someone who loathes the attention and all, she spends a lot of time talking to the press. Her disdainful pose is all an act. If people stopped courting her and the fans were gone, she’d go crazy.

  7. Jen says:

    She is such a self-important bitch…ugh. I can’t STAND her.

  8. kit says:

    You people have it all wrong. She’s not the one that thinks it’s cheesy, her husband is. She’s just obeying his orders.

  9. Mr. T says:

    Who cares what this flaky fish stick has to say?

  10. Codzilla says:

    neelyo: Exactly, thank you.

    divorce’ing within a year
    any bets?

  12. Aspen says:

    I’m glad my husband doesn’t think that showing me love, respect, and affection in public is cheesy.

  13. Linda says:

    Another low-key couple is one that’s right there – Courtney Cox and David Arquette. He was probably there too but they can let eachother go for a minute unlike Brangeloonie – who seem (well prob. just Angie is) insecure with all their clutching, never let you out of my sight crap.

    Rita! Good lord!
    My eyeballs have done a 180 and are staring at my brain. It’s unpleasant.

  15. Jill says:

    why does it not surprise me that she’s “above” it?

  16. loldongs says:

    It’s “cheesy”, what the fuck is she sixteen?

  17. Diva says:

    I think GOOP is cheesy.

    And melted cheddar cheese is goopy. But it’s still good on microwave nachos.

    Sorry, I’m tired and the vicodin has me feeling stupid right now, lol.


  18. MT says:

    Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner?

    Ben is the one who doesn’t like to turn the relationship into a Brangelina, while Jennifer is doing whatever she can to pimp her family in order to stay relevant.

    I think GP is afarid that her stoned husband will embarrass her.
    Chances are he would.
    Being so high all the time, doesn’t look well on the red carpet.

    MT: And here I thought his eyes were always just red from weeping out all his widdle feewins over his piano.

    I might be able to respect that she doesn’t want to invite the public into her marriage, IF she weren’t so willing to invite us into every other aspect of her life. If you really want privacy, why do interviews, photo shoots, ad campaigns, and — most ridiculously of all — a web site that tells people what they need to eat, buy and wear to be exactly like you? It just seems like such a contradiction to me.

  21. boomchakaboom says:

    Actually being seen together might bring into focus some unseemly part of their relationship, such as her husband despises her and it’s difficult to not notice when they’re together. She doesn’t seem to be a pleasant person.

  22. PJ says:

    Grainger, interesting observation that Gwyneth is more than happy to share her life with the media. She has also shared her past relationships with the media.

    So it’s got to be Chris who insists on the privacy. He was on “60 Minutes” right before the Grammys and made it clear he finds it tough to deal with the media. He said the other members of Coldplay are quite relieved that he is the frontman, so they don’t have to deal with the media. He told the interviewer (Steve Croft) that he basically wanted to run away whenever he was quizzed about personal stuff. It sounds like it’s very difficult for Chris — he’s not being obnoxious, he’s just a little quirky that way. It’s so different from most performers who are hams and love it when they get media attention.
