I admit it: I wouldn''t mind her life. Married to a rock star, huge career, tons of money, attractive, famous parents, jet-set lifestyle, etc.
I''ve met Blythe and she''s a Grade A bitch from hell. I would never want her as my mother.
I love how Gwyneth hatred on DL (much of it deserved) has cast Blythe as a saint by comparison. Blythe and her late husband always struck me as insanely self-involved, self-important people. Gwyneth just seems like a logical extension of their show-biz, upper-crust narcissism.
OP looks like another one of those West Asian "paid to create threads" types. What are they getting now? Thirty cents American and ten minutes on the site?
Gwynnie, get back to goop.
I don''t dislike her. If she does a good job in a film I''m viewing, that''s all that counts.
As they say "Born on third base and thinks she hit a triple."
I think it has to do with the fact that she''s very condescending, judgmental and pretentious. GOOP was a very bad move on her part.
I''ve only seen a few of her movies and she''s an ok actress, but she comes off very pretentious off-screen.
I''m Country Strong, y''all!\
G. Paltrow (Connecting with the common)
Gwyneth Paltrow is humorless, annoying cunt.%0D\
There is nothing to like about her.
I loved her in "sliding Doors"
I liked her in Sliding Doors also, I think she''s a great actress and for some reason I can''t see Chris Martin being with someone who acted above everyone else. I think ppl are jealous of her lifestyle.\
let it go haters
[quote]also, I think she''s a great actress\
And Rebecca Black is a great singer.
also, the term "haters" went out with the Lindy Hop and the Bunny Hug
I think she has real potential. Give her 20 years, 2 divorces, one fucked-up child, and a substance abuse problem, and she''ll be a DataLounge icon.
I''d love to hear more about Blythe Danner. I remember she was originally cast in the Holland Taylor role in Two and a Half Men, but fired after the pilot for supposedly trying to give the creator too many notes and generally being a pain in the ass.
Blythe is self-aware and Gwyneth lives in a fantasy world. That''s the difference between them.
Blythe Danner was originally cast in the lead role in SIX DEGREES OF SEPARATION and replaced by Stockard Channing.
Gwyneth is a humorless, pretentious twat OP. I liked her in Emma though.
Well, she makes a point of lording her superiority over everyone, which is at least mildly irritating. It doesn''t help that there is certainly a lot to be jealous of: she has incredible looks, fame, and money.%0D\
It''s silly to extend dislike of an actor / actress to their work, but maybe it''s just too hard to make that distinction in certain cases. She is definitely a good actress. The Oscar was ridiculous, but she''s done enough excellent work for there to be any question that she has talent.%0D\
In many ways goopgirl reminds me of Kathy Lee Gifford, who never shut up about how perfect her life was (as well as all of her choices, from where to live, to what to eat, to how to raise your children, and on and on...). Unfortunately for her, that meant many, many people enjoyed watching the bubble of her perfect life get burst in spectacular fashion.%0D
R19,,,,she just recently spoke out that her marriage wasn''t perfect, Kathy Lee Gifford is in never never land. At least G puts it on the table
I think she''s a great actor.
Blythe Danner was the original Caroline Ingalls on Little House on the Prairie, but was replaced at the last minute by Karen Grassle.
Why do people hate Gwyneth so much? Let''s ask Gwyneth herself! All quotes guaranteed 100% from the lips of Gwyneth herself!\
"Any time you do anything with any degree of sincerity, people make fun of you. That''s totally fine. I don''t care. I don''t read any of it. My thing with Goop has always been, if you don''t like it, then don''t log onto it. There were a couple of times when I thought, ''I''m just gonna stop doing it. People are so mean to me. I don''t want to do it.'' But then I was like, ''Who cares what some lame person out there says?'' I was in Italy once, and this old man came up to me and said, ''I had the best time in Nashville because of Goop.'' And that is so worth it to me."
"Beauty fades! I just turned 29, so I probably don''t have that many good years left in me."
from the lips of Gwyneth
On life in the UK:\
"We have great dinner parties at which everyone sits around talking about politics, history, art and literature---all this peppered with really funny jokes. But back in America, I was at a party and a girl looked at me and said, ''Oh, my God! Are those Juicy jeans that you''re wearing?'' and I thought, I can''t stay here. I have to get back to Europe."
More from Gwyneth''s own lips!\
"I am who I am. I can''t pretend to be somebody who makes $25,000 a year."
""I''m really fucking good at my job, and people who are interesting and good know that. That''s all that matters." \
"I would rather die than let my kid eat Cup-A-Soup." \
"I''m very happy here [in London] and I really like the way the film industry works, everybody cares. I like that it doesn''t have this big capitalistic feeling. When you do something in L.A. you really feel the crew are [sic] punching the clock."
and yet, people dislike her! How can that be?
[quote]I was in Italy once, and this old man came up to me and said, ''I had the best time in Nashville because of Goop.'' And that is so worth it to me.\
I call bullshit on that one.
[quote]"I would rather die than let my kid eat Cup-A-Soup."\
A variation of that may be on my tombstone.
she really was bff''s with Madonna.\
What does that tell you?
Was R31. I don''t like Gwynnie but Madonna can''t keep friends. Bitch is psycho. I still haven''t heard what happened between her and Rupert Everett.
1. They are jealous of her fabulous lifestyle, much of which she owes to the circumstance of her birth.\
2. She does not pretend to be one of the common people to endear herself to them, like many of her Hollywood brothers and sisters do. \
3.She owns her upper-crust privilege, yet still has the funkiness to marry a rock star and hang with the likes of Jay-Z and Beyonce.
4. She''s thin.
The world hates thin people.
R33, die in a grease fire.
for your #3 reason alone.
[quote]yet still has the funkiness to marry a rock star and hang with the likes of Jay-Z and Beyonce.\
This is a good thing? Jay-Z and Beyonce?
Jay Z and Beywolf = the only black people GP knows and the ones she thinks of when she uses the "some of my best friends are black" excuse.
I''d rather die than let myself be Gwyneth Paltrow.
[quote]yet still has the funkiness to marry a rock star\
Yes, there are few more deeply funky "rock stars" than Chris Martin of ColdPlay.
Perhaps only Olivia Newton-John
Her fans are cunts. If you can''t see why Gwyneth is infinitely hate worthy, you might want to start realizing that you''re a cunt.
She''s smug. Smug is annoying to many people.
oops.. posted this in the wrong thread, I was supposed to post it here.\
You might hate her, but I bet her Spanish is better than yours.
She''s also very materialistic and obsessed with superficial things. And she''s a true narcissist, talking about herself and her sensations and her desires and her achievements and what other people think of her obsessively to the press.
I usually don''t get the "hate" that exists for many female celebrities on DL and other gossip forums. It mostly seems to stem from pure cattiness and not anything valid. I love to read gossip as much as the next person, but I''m not catty.\
Having said that, if all those quotes attributed to GP are real, then I get it.
I lived in her building in NYC. When she first moved in, she asked if the gym could be closed to others when she was working out. The Condo Board laughed.%0D\
[quote]I lived in her building in NYC. When she first moved in, she asked if the gym could be closed to others when she was working out. The Condo Board laughed. \
Why in a billion years would she ever imagine they would accede to her wishes? This is exactly why people hate her so much: because she somehow believes not only is she entitled to this but that other people would just do it because she is who she is.
What building was it, R45.
"she has incredible looks"\
Did you forget your contacts or eyeglasses while gazing at photos of this woman?\
She is far from incredible looking, she looks like an over-grown elf! She has a very bizarre nose and her dyed hair always looks stringy and fried.
[quote]She has a very bizarre nose and her dyed hair always looks stringy and fried.\
Her hair is awful. Get some body in that shit girl and lay off the flat iron.
Dyed hair? She is not a natural blonde?
She might be a natural blonde, but I doubt it''s naturally that bright a shade.
I saw a picture of her as a teenager, and she had red hair - a very pretty light strawberry blonde. %0D\
I don''t know if that''s her natural hair color, maybe she started dying early.
OP = Lonely Lesbian.
People hate Gwynnie Goopster because she is, metaphorically speaking, the whiny bitch who raised her hand and said, "Dawn Davenport is eating a meatball sandwich RIGHT OUT IN CLASS." \
Telling others how much better your choices are is an expressway to hatred and ridicule.\
Also, she''s got the acting range of a golden retriever. \
(Though I will say, I am a bit jealous that she has access to Chris Martin''s cock.)
Country Strong finally hit the cable channels. What a piece of crap.
Actually i find Gwyneth likeable. She is totally crazy and i sense a cool closeted lesbian side in her which i appreciate...
A lot of people like Gwyneth but dislike the OP.
I grow tired of all the Gwyneth hate. It's a little predictable. Give it a rest.
I'm really ambivalent about 'Contagion'. Should i see or not?
I'm not a fan of Steven Soderbergh, actually i don't like most of his movies with the exception of 'Kafka' and 'Sex, Lies and Videotapes'
Please tell me! Is 'Contagion' a good movie or not?
She is a bitch!
Haters are always gonna hate.
I've never disliked Gwynnie.
This interview with Jon Stewart made me hate her so much. Just FF to 4:50 if you can't handle her 5 whole minutes of bitchiness.
I don't think lesbians are into her. It's mostly gay men who hate obsess over her.
Imagine you're in high school like the people whose minds never left there and you'll understand why those same people hate her.
This girl I work with is obsessed with Gwyneth. She has her own "lifestyle" blog with crappy hipstamatic prints of floral arrangements and closeups of her cats. She's shallow and backstabbing and imperious. Much like I imagine the real Goopy to be.
I like that she is not going down the Katie Holmes, Reese Witherspoon, Jennifer Garner path and shoving her kids in front of the pap lenses for PR. I do believe she is a great mother.
She is a great actress but unfortunately she hasn't showed that lately. Paul Thomas Anderson cast her in his first movie, Hard Eight and she is amazing in that one. She was great in other movies too and I like her a lot as Pepper.
I think the people who love to hate her are being put off by her comments of always wanting the best for her kids and her upper class clientèle website.
After year of foul gossip her marriage seems to be going OK and she still refuses to exploit it for publicity. She is by far not the most awful celeb I can think of.
Still a bitch
I love you for using "imperious," R67. Such a perfect word to describe so many of these narcissistic, entitled little bitches we're all encountering now.
"I do believe she is a great mother. "
Really? I'm inclined to think she'll parent like every other perfectionist narcissist in the world, constantly berating her kids for failing to be perfect enough to fit into her perfect lifestyle. Every low grade or zit those kids have will not only offend her sense of order, it'll hurt her brand!
And "self-entitled" is not a word (or phrase). Please use "self-important" or "entitled", those are part of the English language.
R64 she doesn't seem like a bitch as much as just plain B O R I N G!
YOU sound like a perfectionist narcissist!
I hear her marriage is a cesspool of betrayal.
I actually like her. I find her lack of fake humility rather refreshing.
She's a good-looking woman who has had a successful career. She came from a successful family and she doesn't downplay that or pretend she made it on her own. She's married to a man who doesn't have to be her manager or waste her money on bad investments to have something to do. She seems to genuinely enjoy being a mother and wife, and she doesn't lie and pretend her life is perfect.
I always thought she was okay, but I really enjoyed her on the PBS show where she and Mario Batali toured Spain. She came across as a genuinely likable person, which is hard to fake on that kind of series.
She was mesmerizing in Great Expectations. After that, not so much.
I actually wish she'd act more. Can she not get work other than shit like Glee and Iron Man?
I don't despise her but she represents the horrible trend for celebrities to "brand" themselves, instead of doing anything creative or risky. GP won an Oscar but seems content playing Pepper Potts in Iron Man. I understand it, but it makes me think Meryl Streep would never be successful today. She would have to get a nose job and would be a character actress on Mad Men, if she was lucky. Nepotism is deadly to creativity.
I've never actually met a "Gwyneth Paltrow fan" in real life. I am skeptical to their existence. Actually, I don't think I've ever heard anyone utter the words "I like Gwyneth Paltrow."
I think the flyover idiots just don't get her. Gwyneth (and Blythe) are divine
I used to dislike her back in the late 90s after hearing that rumor that she "stole" the Shakespeare in Love script from Winona Ryder. And then I disliked her even more when she won that undeserved oscar. But I gotta admit she's kind of grown on me the last few years.
I wouldn't call myself a fan per se, but I would take Gwyneth any day over any of these reality show nitwits who make a spectacle of themselves for 15 minutes of fame. At least Gwyneth aspires to make good art and tries to be well-spoken and literate.
Plus it seems like the hatred for her has become really irrational these last few years. Anything that she does, whether it be putting out a cookbook or guest-starring on Glee has people saying "That bitch, what an asshole, blah, blah, blah." It just seems like people are jumping on the bandwagon of Gwynnie bashing because it's in rather than having a legitimate reason to dislike her.
[quote]I think the flyover idiots just don't get her. Gwyneth (and Blythe) are divine
Born and bred West Coaster here. I 'get' her plenty - that's why I can't fucking stand her. There goes your theory.
Her racist comments about Mexican Spanish being 'kitchen Spanish' (as opposed to the 'pure' Spanish she speaks) propelled me from distaste to full-on loathing. Bitch can eat it. Cheat on her some more, Chris!
From finding a perfect recipe to cleaning up Cameron Diaz, I enjoy making our planet a little brighter. You can't begin without being.
Can someone please explain the "fish sticks" references?
Ted Casablanca coined that? Cold fish with skinny legs? The last picture I saw of Gwyneth she looked way too skinny, kind of unhealthy looking.
Ted C finally met her and sat and talked to her and discovered he liked her. All that crap he said about her and he didn't know her.
Isn't she Julian Fellows number one choice for an American version of Downton Abbey? She could play Lady Goop.
Gwyneth Paltrow On Possibility Of Daughter Apple Being A Lesbian
"I've been saving my clothes for her since before she was born," the actress told the magazine. "I was like, I'll bet you anything I'll have a daughter, and she'll be a really cool butch lesbian and be so above clothes, and I got a very clothes-obsessed child."
She went on to note, "So if she's a lesbian, she's a lipstick lesbian. She doesn't like anything avant-garde at all. She likes anything that's pretty, pretty, pretty or has a bow or a ruffle or is pink."
Gwyneth Paltrow encourages children to learn about lesbian parents.
Gwyneth Paltrow, who is married to the Coldplay singer Chris Martin, talks to her seven-year-old daughter about homosexuality.
The American actress, 38, who has a daughter, Apple, aged seven, and a son, Moses, five, says: “When my daughter came home from school one day saying that a classmate had two mummies, my response was, 'Two mummies? How lucky is she?’“
Paltrow adds of homosexuality: “What does it actually say in the Bible that will cause some people to be upset by my line of thinking?"
The actress chose the name Apple because it’s “biblical – and I just thought it sounded so lovely and … clean
I think that most people hate her because she is rich and she talks about her lifestyle. Yes Goop is creepy but she doesn't try to impose her opinion to others, she just share her crazy point of view. Actually Goop is addressing to people who have an ambition and some money...lol. However, i don't think that Paltrow has realized that and i also think that Gwyneth doesn't look down on people who don't have money, she just revels at talking about her pleasures. That's all!
Let's not hate her because she had the opportunity to grow up in a wealthy environment. Even these people face a lot of issues and difficulties. Not the issues and difficulties most of us deal with, but still she is not in an ivory tower. She is an actress. She is most of the time exposed. Let's be more tolerant with people who are so exposed. They offer us entertainment and the opportunity to think or to judge.
Her movie career seems over, she has not been in anything important for a long time. She should never have won that oscar in 1997 but as well all know Weinstein got it for her.
It was amusing seeing her turn up in Glee, and singing with Cee-Lo at the grammys a year or two ago, is she trying to be a singer now ....
Lol R95. Her voice is not bad by the way and i disagree with you, her career is not over. Why you say that?
She was very good in the very good movie 'Two Lovers' and i also liked her presence in 'Country Strong'. I don't know if she is trying so hard to be a singer, but as it seems most people today want to sing, lol! At least she has not a bad voice like many others who followed singing as a profession!
Her movie career isn't over, but her time as a movie star is. She's doing small films and supporting roles in big ones, and IMHO she's trying to be a lifestyle guru to keep from fading from the public eye. Without the GOOP nonsense, she'll soon be just another aging actress who plays society bitches.
And who the hell thinks she's a regular Jane who's not living in a bubble? The way she pushes insanely overpriced products, she reminds me of the sort of high school Mean Girl who tries to be "nice" to the poor girls by offering to take them along on a Nieman Marcus shopping trip.
She does look like Mr Burns in drag!
R68 the reason why she isn't papping out her kids is because they are average looking. Her daughter Apple was born with a birth defect.
A larger crossed eye so she can't pap her out.
The photos Gwyneth approves always hide the defect.
Also, she stole the name Apple from the Peter Farrelly who directed her in Shallow Hal. The movie where she wore a fat suit. And then made fun of fat people during all the publicity.
I actually enjoyed her bit on Glee. And then when I saw that horrible Kate Hudson woman on Glee I appreciated Gwyneth even more.
Apple is a biblical name? That's a stretch. Eating the Apple in Genesis caused the downfall of man. She is too much.
People don't like her because she is always doing the most. Trying way too hard and looking foolish. Look at her niggas in Paris episode on twitter. She reeks of privilege and self-absorption. You never hear about her doing charity work unless it's a cool charity like Robinhood Foundation. She is also very basic looking and promotes skinny bodies and questonable diet practices. Not to mention the pricey gym she runs with Tracy Anderson who is another piece of work.
They never mentioned that it was an apple in the bible. My awesome, progressive, Catholic school taught us this as an example that a lot of what people swore was in the bible is bullshit. They also had us play the telephone game with bible passages to show us that thro the many translations we weren't hearing "the word of God." They didn't molest me either but I still had myself excommunicated (didn't get a nice certificate suitable for framing tho)
in the 90's I was a regular on alt.fan.brad-pitt - we called her 'bitchface' then. She's grown on me - somewhat - since then.
It's just that she seems so adamant on vocalizing her obviously elitist yet laughably unsophisticated views of how people "should" live. She's a bored, rich woman (but not that rich that she still doesn't have to try to find work) living in New York City to a musician who probably finds her insufferably boring and narcissistic. I don't care what she thinks, she doesn't care what I think, but I'm not the one buying Constant Contact subscriptions and trying to get people to subscribe to my newsletters filled with my vacuous and banal observations and desperate pleas to buy clothing and household goods. I think she was cute in Iron Man though.
CDAN keeps hinting that a celebrity marriage is over. People keep guessing that it is Gwyneth or Nicole. It's brutal for actresses now because of reality television and franchises. Everything is young and disposable. Even I am sick of Kristen Stewart and Jennifer Lawrence, and they are not even 25. Goopie is simply trying to stay relevant. It's sad and hard to be successful.
I guess they hate her because she stinks too.....literally
I went to my favourite bookstore recently and spend some 20 min browsing her recipes. I know the book was written with the help of a professional cook, but her cooking is pretty much what I do at home. So I don't know why people say she is malnourishing herself or her kids. I guess she never recovered from making derogatory comments about America. Combined with the fact that she speaks French and Spanish, and seems to have a more sophisticated knowledge about things non American, makes her the perfect target for the average US citizen.
At the beginning, i thought that Gwyneth was a bitch who stole a role from Winona Ryder. I was very fond of Winona, i loved her movies. However, later i suspected that the truth is more complicated than i thought it was.
I don't think that Gwyneth has kleptomaniac tendencies. She just tried her luck with that role. Was that a theft? She is an actress after all. If Winona was really a friend, she wouldn't get pissed that Paltrow made an audition for that film. She would respect it. After all, at that time Winona was top, she was far more famous that Gwyneth. What was her problem?
I came to realize that i misjudged Gwyneth.
She is just vocal, and that gives her trouble a lot of times, but she is not a bitch. People must not judge someone by their sweetness(Ok, Winona seems very sweet, fragile and she is a great actress). Don't judge Paltrow for her rich background and for silly Goop. It was not her fault that she had the luck to be a child of a wealthy family. Stop attacking her, ffs, just because she has these crazy ideas on her mind and she likes to share it with the world. She didn't harm anyone so far. Not really.
