Some excerpts just came out of Gwyneth Paltrow’s interview with the May issue of Vogue UK, and they are juicy! Dame Goopy deigns to tell us that she “can be mean” and that she “can ice people out”. Oh really? But although Gwyneth admits she’s a snotty ice princess, she also admits that her health always suffers because she’s such a bitch: “I’ll wake up in the morning and think, ‘Ugh, I feel terrible’, and suddenly realize, ‘Ah, that’s why. I’m holding on to so much hate.’” I think Gwyneth is trying to tell us that if we’re a frigid ice princess like her, it comes at the cost of constipation.
In an interview with Vogue magazine, the actress admitted that she harbours feelings of hate and a desire for revenge against those who have crossed her.
“Oh yes, I can be mean. I can cave in to gossip. I can ice people out and I can definitely harbour revenge. In fact, I’m having a situation right now with a friend where I’m feeling pretty angry. But revenge is corrosive and it doesn’t make me feel good,” she said.
“I’ll wake up in the morning and think, ‘Ugh, I feel terrible’, and suddenly realize, ‘Ah, that’s why. I’m holding on to so much hate.’”
She also fuelled speculation that the friend in question could be Madonna, who previously employed Paltrow’s new business partner Tracy Anderson as a fitness trainer.
“Yeah, it’s good that she doesn’t train Madonna any more. It was too much. She keeps people waiting – it takes up your whole day,” Paltrow said.
She revealed in the same interview that she she is to open her own exercise studio offering women the opportunity to achieve a Hollywood body.
The Oscar-winning actress is going into business with Anderson and the studio will open in London later this year. Paltrow, 37, credits her enviable figure to Anderson, who helped her to lose 20lb following the birth of her son.
“Oh, I had to work hard to get it like this, but now I’m here it’s so great because I don’t have to think about it. I can just enjoy life. What a relief is that,” she said. “I can eat what I want, as long as I exercise, which is just as well, because if I put the word’ diet’ into my brain, I immediately gain a stone.”
To underline her point, the star of Iron Man and Shakespeare in Love is also bringing out a cookery book featuring her favourite childhood recipes, including pizza and ice cream floats.
The US actress, who is married to British singer Chris Martin from Coldplay, said she wanted to diversify her career beyond acting. “And that’s partly because I have this whole other passion, which is home-making. I always have done, since I was little. As silly as that sounds – it’s not 1955, after all – it’s really important to me, all that stuff, sitting round a table as a family.”

“I immediately gain a stone”… God, I just want to smack her. You. Are. American. Oh, but I love that she describes being a mother and wife as “this whole other passion, which is home-making.” Jesus. How about, “I love being a mom, it’s worth every second”? How about “my family is the most important thing”? But no, we get “this whole other passion, which is home-making.” She makes it sound like she’s more passionate about doing laundry than her children. Which is weird, because I bet Gwyneth is actually a pretty good mom. Maybe she’s just not that “passionate” about her kids as she is about her linens.
