I am sure goop get a lot of traffic just to make fun of her obtuse posts.
[quote]Surely she has friends.
What an odd assumption.
I don't think she [italic]has[/italic] friends. Not in the same sense you or I have them.
About twelve years ago some vapid magazine asked her to name her three best friends, and they were all "it" people at the time, and none of them had ever been once photographed doing anything with her--I think one was Stella McCartney, and one was Princess Rosario of Bulgaria, and I forget who the third person was. But it was as if someone had asked her, "Name your three favorite moisturizers." It was all about the brand names.
Who will be her new BFF, now that Beyonce's star is fading?
Betcha she tries to pal up with Jennifer Laurence next, who is the hot young thing of the moment.
I don't think Lawrence would have any patience for that bitch. Maybe Ron Howard's secret daughter if she was friendly with anyone and not living a secret double life.
She lives in a bubble, OP.
At one point Gwyneth was also reported to be Madonna's new BFF. This was in the aughts after Madonna had moved there and was living the manor life.
r7 - Didn't their friendship break up over that trainer, Tracy Anderson?
I was trying to figure out the exact moment when Gwyneth went off. Sure, she was always an obnoxious princess, but at one time she had some actual ambition as an actor. I never thought she had amazing talent, but she really rolled over and stopped even trying at some point.
Goopy was also bffs with Winona Ryder until Goopy found the Shakespeare in love script at Winona's house and volunteered herself for the part.
Winona not so crazy about Goopy after that.
I bet Winona would love to tell Gwenyth what she thinks of her ridiculous website, but no ones listening to Winona-the-Klepto these days.
"Betcha she tries to pal up with Jennifer Laurence next, who is the hot young thing of the moment."
I wouldn't trust her around all the scripts that are sent to me!
Her friendship with Winona Ryder seemed really intense, almost like a love affair. I don't think Gwyneth was ever more animated than she was in Winona's company. Whatever happened between them, it certainly broke Gwyneth's heart.
At the time Ryder and Platrow were dating new golden boys Matt Damon and Ben Affleck, respectively. They couple dated often.
The story goes that Paltrow was over Ryder's place and found the script of SHAKESPEARE IN LOVE lying around. She decided to audition herself without telling Ryder and before Ryder had a chance to audition and got the part. OF course, she later won the Oscar, which may have deepened RYder's resentment.
The friendship seemed to mean a lot to them - they really should make amends before it's too late. Winona is off the crazy train of celebrity and Gwyneth must want some respite as well. Pride is such a pointless thing.
[quote]GP: I would love to have that on video. How much would I get from Hard Copy for that? Do you know what film you're going to do next?
[quote]WR: I'm deciding that now.
I wonder if Ryder was hinting about SHAKESPEARE IN LOVE. The interview is from 1997 because they mention ALIEN RESURRECTION opening soon (Nov. '97).
I doubt that Miss Gwenyth will ever lower herself to be friends with the likes of Winona ever again r13. How would it look for Goopy if she were to associate herself with a pill popping, unemployable thief? And I'm not sure Winona would want a bar of Gwenyth either, considering she won an Oscar for the part Winona was being considered for.
That friendship is dead in the water.
I wonder what Winona is doing these days, she never even pops up in the gossip rags. Even Lara Flynn Boyle gets more press than she does.
G wrote this, supposedly about Winona, in Goop:
[quote]Back in the day, I had a “frenemy” who, as it turned out, was pretty hell-bent on taking me down. This person really did what they could to hurt me. I was deeply upset, I was angry, I was all of those things you feel when you find out that someone you thought you liked was venomous and dangerous. I restrained myself from fighting back. I tried to take the high road. But one day I heard that something unfortunate and humiliating had happened to this person. And my reaction was deep relief and…happiness. There went the high road. So, why does it feel so good to hear something bad about someone you don’t like? Or someone you DO like? Or someone you don’t KNOW? I once asked the editor of a tabloid newspaper why all of the stories about a famous British couple had a negative bent. He said that when the headline was positive, the paper didn’t sell. Why is that? What’s wrong with us? I asked the sages to shed a little light.
Would you want to be friends with her?
I would be very surprised to find out that she has any real friends in the way you or I would have friends.
She seems to be all about herself and the way she is seen by others. That kind of person is almost impossible to be friends with, they are all surface.
Even her own husband isn't seen in public with her.
Gwyneth has always carried herself with the smug self-satisfaction of someone who's never been told "no." If she's an insufferable cunt (which she is), it's the result of the permissive environment in which she exists. Besides, her would-be detractors wouldn't have anything to laugh about if she had enough self-awareness to not do or say the things she does.
She's the original of this latest generation that fancies themselves, "Internet cheerleaders, lifestyle coaches, bloggers who up the wow factor, motivational speakers or anyone with an instagram account and bouquet of local flowers." Seriously, she spawned all this. Blame her.
