Here are some photos of Gwyneth Paltrow in London last night, exiting a restaurant after dining with Madonna and Jesus. Incredible coat, and nice leather pants! I actually love the leather – or is it pleather? You know Goopy is so tight with Stella McCartney, and Stella’s big thing is “no leather”. Which makes me think these are pleather. I owned a fabulous pair of pleather pants once. They got me laid on more than one occasion.
Anyway, Goopy has a lot going on! She’s the cover girl for Vogue UK for the May issue (cover below), but alas, no interview excerpts have been released yet. However, Thursday’s are GOOP days, and today’s GOOP is all about how all of us peasants are totally fat. This is one of Gwyneth’s favorite subjects, and she’s talking about it in the context of Jamie Oliver’s “Food Revolution” stuff in America – she even does an interview with him (full piece here):
Sigh. Jamie Oliver. I love Jamie Oliver. I love his food, I love his books, I love his app, I love the mission he is on. Jamie Oliver is trying to change the way we eat, and by doing so, he plans to deal a massive blow to the likes of obesity, heart disease and type 2 diabetes.
He is trying to encourage us to get back into the kitchen and cook for ourselves and our families, thereby cutting out the fast and overly processed foods that are making us sick. And fat. And depressed. We are getting this information from so many sources at this point that it’s hard to deny the link between bad nutrition and the host of bad effects it is having on our wellbeing. Even PepsiCo CEO Indra Nooyi, according to last week’s Economist, sees what is at stake and is reducing salt and sugar in Pepsi products, promising to rid schools of all their sugar packed sodas by 2012 (what a gal!) So Jamie is having an effect.
He recently won the TED prize for his efforts to change our diets, as chronicled on his new TV show, Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution on ABC Friday nights at 9 pm. Check him out in any of the aforementioned ways. He is pretty great.
I do think what Jamie is doing is important, and I recognize that obesity is a huge problem, especially for children. However – whenever Gwyneth goes off like this about how all of us peasants are so FAT, I just want to smack her. But I did think this part was interesting: “He is trying to encourage us to get back into the kitchen and cook for ourselves and our families, thereby cutting out the fast and overly processed foods that are making us sick. And fat. And depressed.” Depressed you say? Are you sure you aren’t projecting, Sad Goopy? All of those peasants might be fat, but your bony husband was still boning Kate Bosworth. Too harsh? She pisses me off when she gets on her high horse.
Here’s Goopy’s Vogue UK cover – she looks very freckled, doesn’t she?
