Scarlett Johansson to Gwyneth Paltrow: “I’m younger & hotter”

Scarlett Johansson attends the Iron Man 2 premiere in Los Angeles

Shocking no one, the alleged catfight between Gwyneth Paltrow and Scarlett Johansson has entered into the tabloid world. Of course. Because for a year we’ve been hearing from legit entertainment sources that no one involved in the production of Iron Man 2 wanted to alert the general public that Gwyneth was in any way involved in the film. Add to that, Gwyneth’s seemingly passive-aggressive attempts to fashion c-ockblock Scarlett Johansson in their two big cast appearances, and it really does seem like there’s some sort of catfight going on between the two women. Now the Enquirer is reporting that ScarJo and Goopy couldn’t even sit through one meeting together with being bitches:

Scarlett Johansson and Gwyneth Paltrow are locked in a bitter feud – over who is the film’s bigger star! And the claws were out at a recent meeting, where each woman took a swipe at the other, a source told the Enquirer.

The catfight starts when outspoken Scarlett announced that she deserves more press attention because she is “younger and hotter.” Scar is 25, Gwyn is 37.

“Gwyneth was outraged, but she kept her composure,” said the source. “She believes Scarlett was out of line.”

Gwyneth told Scarlett that when she wins an Oscar, then she can talk.

“Scarlett didn’t know what to say,” said the source. “She was upset.”

A rep for Scarlett denies that there is bad blood between her and Gwyneth. But the source insists that the rivalry is “driving everyone insane who is working on promotion of the movie.”

Robert Downey Jr. has not taken sides in the spat, said the source.

[From The National Enquirer, print edition]

I can’t really see ScarJo saying the line, “I’m younger and hotter” so that makes me think that this is false. However, I could see Goopy saying a line like “When you win an Oscar, then we’ll talk.” Can’t you just hear her snotty nasal voice saying that? I actually had to look it up though – ScarJo has never been nominated for an Oscar, shock. I thought she was nominated for Lost in Translation, or maybe Match Point, but no. Nothing. So… one point for Goopy? Ugh.

    ScarJo has alluring eyes. Gwyn has the perfect legs. They are both beautiful on their own respective ways

  2. bite me says:

    oh goopy you make it so easy for people to dislike your arse

  3. Heather says:

    I don’t buy that this exchange happened. I totally buy that they compete for attention, and I’ll totally buy that they get little passive agressive digs in at each other, but I think both are too concerned with appearances to be so blatantly petty in front of a room full of people.

  4. Rachel says:

    Oh please, this never happened. They might think it or even say it to a girlfriend but they wouldn’t say it to each other and certainly not in a professional setting.

  5. neelyo says:

    If there was really a feud, wouldn’t Gwyneth already have made some veiled passive aggresive marks on that stupid blog of hers? She’s always bitching about friends who let her down, etc.

    I do believe there is animosity between the two, and I also tend to think it’s probably coming from Paltrow’s side because of her past disses of other women.

  6. Malorie says:

    I don´t believe it happened, but (and don´t kill me) I prefer a thousand Gwyneths than one ScarJo.
    Can´t stand her.

  7. Scout says:

    I don’t believe this happened this way…but since I can’t stand either one of these women, it would have been sort of a sick fun to watch a real cat fight between them! Twits.

  8. annaloo says:

    In another imaginary note to Scarlett:

    you are younger, but that’s not necessarily a plus. However, you are definitely HOTTER. WORK it girl!! BRing it to these premeieres!!!

  9. Carol says:

    This supposed feud is getting really old. Why do you assume that Gwyneth stole ScarJo’s fashion limelight during the premieres and not the other way around? Why is there such consternation about Gwyneth’s role in the movie? She is Iron Man’s love interest; even if her role is smaller, it’s still a significant character to the story. RDJ said he personally recruited her for the original story; of course she poses with him in the pictures. If this specific encounter actually happened (which I don’t believe at all), then ScarJo was the one who was way out of line, and Gwyneth gave the perfect response to it. I guess I don’t understand all the Gwyneth hate on this site.

  10. Ken says:

    Yeah, this is just a strategy story to draw more attention to the movie. It’s an old Hollywood move from back in the day. If it were true, which I doubt – ScarJo beats droopy goopy’s ass out the door and down the street hands down. She is way better looking, more talented and actually has a more charming personality – what does the princess of priss have? Entitlement, ego and saggy tits – ugh!

  11. Marjalane says:

    I guess she’s younger, and maybe she’s “hotter”, but she’s still a really bad actress. I’m with Chelsea Handler- all she does is purse her lips, thrust out her boobs and lisp her way through movies.

  12. Lisa says:

    I don’t believe that argument ever took place. But if we are going to compare here, I do believe that Scarjo is a sexy woman…. but definitely Not prettier than Gwyneth.

  13. embertine says:

    The words you need to concentrate on in this story are “the Enquirer is reporting…”. And then you don’t need to read any further.

  14. Vi says:

    i’m sure that didn’t happen. it doesn’t even sound like a bad movie script. it’s beyond credibility. they’re both boring as fark anyway.

  15. Maritimer says:

    I am obviously in the minority here(by a long shot it seems), but I do not find Scarlett attractive at all. At all.

    Yes, she can look sexy and cleans up well (with a make-up artist, a stylist and a hairdresser)…but she does nothing for me otherwise.

    GP is naturally beautiful, especially when she has a little more meat on her.

    Just IMO though.

  16. lucy2 says:

    Heather, I’m in complete agreement.

    I find it funny that they supposedly fight over who is the film’s bigger star. RDJ is the star, followed by the special effects, probably then followed by Mickey Rourke as the big villain. Seems like S & G would be squabbling over 4th & 5th place.

  17. Wow says:

    Again, all of these no name sources for this more than likely non-existent fued. Now I’m all for a good celebrity fued, but they should have something more solid. The mags couldn’t even drudge up a catty red carpet comment from either actress and take it out of context to support this. Lol.

  18. Sandi says:

    She IS younger and hotter, but her acting is very stilted. Will she win an oscar, I don’t think so.

  19. Spring says:

    Gwyneth Paltrow, of all people, shouldn’t prattle on about her Oscar. Her performance was lame and the Oscar was ill-deserved. Best she not remind us.

  20. Mika says:

    Well said, Spring. Shakespeare in Love? That shit was embarrassing.

    That said, ScarJo hasn’t exactly shown any talent since “The Horse Whisperer” and her recent weight loss isn’t doing anything good for her figure.

  21. mila says:

    To be honest I don’t find ScarJo attractive and I also think that Gwyneth is a mediocre actress. Having said that, I don’t get this hatred for Gwyneth on this site. Maybe she comes off as a bit pompous but in a harmless way.

  22. hatuh says:

    I’m with Malorie. ScarJo bugs me. I’ve always thought Gwyneth was lovely and refined.

  23. Feebee says:

    It probably never happened but… Younger is undeniable, hotter is a matter of opinion. The “Oscar” can’t really be pulled out as Spring mentioned and also because if an Oscar was really the gold standard, Gwyneth wouldn’t have one, Meryl would have more than two, Hillary Swank would have to give one back, Julianne Moore would have at least one, Russell Crowe and Denzel Washington would have the same number but for different films than which they won for. The list goes on….

  24. Donna Wingfield says:

    ScarJo is one I see pictures of or watch in a movie, and I think “I don’t get it.” It’s all subjective, of course. What appeals to some doesn’t to others for any number of reasons.

  25. dread pirate cuervo says:

    Feebee, do you mean Denzel would have won for Malcolm X & Crowe for A Beautiful Mind? I’ve always thought so, too.

    On topic, Gwynneth is growing on me & Scarlet is growing more irritating.

  26. Spaniard says:

    The more hate Gwyneth gets from this site, the more she grows on me. Besides from that I think they’re both drop dead gorgeous.

  27. Hautie says:

    My bias opinion.

    I have never ever thought Gwyneth was attractive. She has always came off as a mean nasty piece of work to me.

    The Oscar means nothing. It was a fluke. Has she had a hit in the last decade? Uh, no. The only semi money maker she was in was, The Royal Tenenbaums. And she was a not the star of that one either. Just like Iron Man. She is a bit player. Not responsible for its appeal or box office success.

    Unfortunately, Gwyneth is over rated. But she has not gotten the memo, obviously. haha!

  28. Oenix says:

    Talent. TALENT baby should be your metric for getting press attention. Not “I am younger and hotter”. Promoting yourself that way only gives you a shelf-life and in Holly-youth, it isn’t long.

  29. d says:

    I can totally see Scarlett having made that comment or something similar as a joke, then Gwyneth getting a tad snippy, and then an awkward silence happening. I totally see that.

    And I covet Scarlett’s dress. And a body to wear it. That is an awesome dress.

  30. girl says:

    I totally don’t like either of them but if SJ said it, good on her because she is right.

  31. 123123123 says:

    @Mika: “and her recent weight loss isn’t doing anything good for her figure.”

    Well, if something that happened an year ago is “recent”. She has been probably gaining weight back since the filming of the movie was finished last summer, which is good because she finally starts to look like how she used to look like before Iron Man 2 and the workout came into to the picture.

  32. mariex says:

    If I didn’t know anything about their personalities I’d say that Paltrow looks better just b/c shes more classicily beautiful. Scarlett just looks ho-hum. Now if only G.P. would hush up.

    and the Oscars are total bs. They were created to give the film industry a better public image and to change the perception of actors as something other than ill-reputes. No more bury them in unconsecrated grounds as in the ye olde days.

  33. original kate says:

    time to bust out the cage. two go in, one come out!

  34. jeannified says:

    I think Gwyneth is WAY hotter than Scarjo!

  35. Macheath says:

    Scarlett’s head is shaped like a giant acorn. I’m with Maritimer; don’t find her attractive. At. All.
    Team Gwyneth.

  36. Kat says:

    Team SJ. Fishsticks can F.O.A.D.

  37. Riley says:

    Wasn’t the “younger and hotter” line from Fried Green Tomatoes, when the girl whips into the parking space in front of Kathy Bates’s character and says “Face it I’m younger and hotter,” or something like that, to which KB backs her car into the young, hot girl’s car and replies, “Well, I’m older and have better insurance.”

  38. mad maxine says:

    scarjo- goopy- THUNDERDOME!!!!!!!!!
    2 divas enter.
    one diva leaves.

  39. lulz says:

    Gwyn on Good Morning America:

  40. Chico says:

    Can’t stand Gwyneth’s self-entitled attitude. Rupert Evertt talked about a party he attended for Donatella Versace where both Gwyn and Madonna mean-girled and laughed at many of the guests, including J. Lo. I could never LIKE a narcissistic bitch like Gwyneth (or Mad Madge for that matter). They are snotty, uptight, “our shit don’t stink” mean girls. Scar Jo all the way on this one.

  41. joolz says:

    As annoying as Gwyneth is, ScarJo CANNOT act to save her life! Ugh…she is pretty horrible in every movie she’s in. No emotion in her voice and face. Why is she even popular?

  42. Toni says:

    Gwyneth has NEVER BEEN and NEVER WILL BE…..HOT!!!

  43. Timmy says:

    Paltrow is a jerk. She thinks she is some sort of queen of england.

  44. Slymm27 says:

    Pls someone explain to me why all the hate for Gwyneth. I think i am missing something.

  45. MingMing says:

    Poopie Goopie looks sooooo old and just like a ‘country granny’ next to sexy ScarJo.

    What happened? Poopie Goopie’s boobs have now fallen down towards her waist.

    Next big Poopie Goopie project: Bingo night at the assisted living home!

  46. Ashley says:

    MingMing: she’s as flat as a board. There’s no where for them to go.

    Gwyneth may have gotten the Oscar but I’m still wodnering why. Every movie she has been in has blown. At least ScarJo has the leading men and the good scrips. She’s right Gwyn is a has been no one likes and is lucky to have ever won an Oscar (I’m thinking her father had a hand in it).

    ScarJo isn’t that great either (oddly enough some of her films are some of my favorite though), but she’s still young and has enough time.

  47. Camille says:

    I don’t believe any of it. Typical tabloid crap where they try to start shit between the female actresses. They never do it with the male co stars. Such sexist BS.

    And off topic, but I really do think ScarHo is so over rated- both in talents AND in looks.

  48. iris says:

    Scarlett is short and her nose and lips are revolting

  49. Kate says:

    Gwyneth is just as bad of an actress as Scarlett (winning an oscar is not an indicator of how talented one is, honestly). They’re both shite!

    But Scarlett is married to Ryan Reynolds. Gwyneth is married to… whatever that thing is.

    By my estimation, that counts as
    ScarJo- 1,000,000, Gwyneth- 0

  50. Mistral says:

    I call bullshit on this story. Can’t see Scarjo saying something so dumb. As for Gwyn, she may be the older one, but I think she’s the hotter one. Prettier facial structure and a way better body (I would go with long-legged, tall and slim over short and voluptuous any day). As for her Oscar win, it was totally undeserved. Cate Blanchett was waaaaay better in Elizabeth and got robbed.

  51. Jag says:

    lol I could see both of them saying those lines. Not a fan of either of them, but – and I can’t believe I’m saying it – definitely agree with the point for Goopy.

  52. Platy says:

    This is so ridiculous. Seriously, who believes that two actresses who have been in the business for years would behave that unprofessional? This tabloid crap is getting on my nerves. That people actually get paid for making up shit all day is so damn sad.

  53. canadianchick says:

    Goopy is prettier, Scarjo is sexy but not much of an actor,and she will get old and sag someday soon as Goopy did.

  54. Mingo says:

    Scarlett wins hands down. Any woman like Paltrow who talks about her bowel functioning publicly is a loser in my book.

  55. Dhavy says:

    There has been many Oscars won by people who make you question if the members of the academy were on crack (Julia Roberts anyone?)Both have never done anything that’s so memorable that makes you wonder why they don’t get the award.
    That said, I like Goopy in Emma and ScarJo in the Girl with a Pearl Earring-their co-stars are hotties too

  56. House Mouse says:

    They’re both Polish half Polish, from Polish origin, and typically beautifull.

    They should be friends in public, even if GP looks cold and selfish, the opposite of Scarlett.

  57. lrm says:

    scarjo was good in matchpoint and lost in translation, as well as girl with a pearl earring…
    i also liked goopy in proof and that one way back wiht michael douglas???
    and hey, i liked shakespeare in love.

    that said, scar jo literally ruined the scoop film with woody allen. she was the one who sunk it. truly. couldnt even finish watching it b/c of her. and that recent one she was in-that ensemble one with bradley cooper-she sucked big time in that,as well.
    seems like she phones it in now,but a few years ago, seemed promising.

  58. Kim says:

    Gwenyth seems bitchy but she is far prettier and a better actress than ScarJo.

  59. Mel says:

    I like Gwyneth Paltrow. I never liked Scarlett something about her is just ugly.
