Why do people dislike Gwyneth Paltrow?

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 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.

%0D 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 %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 %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

"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."

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.

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.

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 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.

Gwyneth Paltrow On Possibility Of Daughter Apple Being A Lesbian

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 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 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.

It's just that she seems so adamant on vocalizing her obviously elitist yet laughably unsophisticated views of how people "should" live.

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.

Let's see.

1.- Her looks are nothing to write home about and yet, she behaves like she has the secret to eternal beauty and we peasants don't get it, probably because we are not "nobility" (HA!) like she is. 2.- She is in the Julia Roberts category of awful actresses who somehow managed to get an Oscar (using daddy's contacts and equipped with knee pads and a mattress tied to their backs, I'm sure)

3.- She is an ignorant idiot who isn't really qualified to discuss anything in depth, but seems to think that being a celebrity makes her an intellectual comparable to Chomsky.

4.- Is one of the most unpleasant, condescending, nasty, rude, inexplicably arrogant and petty celebrities out there, and seems to think that the public owes her absolute adoration just because she is a rancid cunt... Oh sorry, I means to say "classy".

As a young gay, I wanted to have Brad Pitt. I did not. Gwyneth did. Then I wanted to have Ben Affleck. I did not. Gwyneth did. Well you get my drift: Gwyneth got all the spring chickens in the poultry and I got none. We got none. Isn't that reason enough to hate her?

by Anonymousreply 11612/09/2013

Don't know why people blame Blythe. Paltrow has said that she was mostly close to her dad and that she had stern German nannies growing up. Yes Blythe was one of those lonely rich girls from Pensylvania(Mr. Danner is/was a bigwig banker)but she was mostly hands-off with her children. Typical.

Paltrow gets her entitled Jewish princess bollocks from her father. If I had to guess, Martin idolizes her like her Dad did which is why she married the inexperienced 25 yo(at the time).

People always hate people who are seemingly perfect. Most humans are envious bitter creatures, especially women, and ESPECIALLY gays. I'm a gay male and learned that humans love to tear people down for shallow reasons. I think women and gays are more prone to be victims so therefore more critical of the superficial things we qualify as perfection.

I agree all the way with you R121.

I find her annoying for stupid remarks about her doctor telling her to avoid deep water fish, her bragging about having the ass of a 20-year-old stripper and telling us how hard she works to get it and for every moronic, entitled, shopaholic thing she has written on Goop. If you're going to put yourself out there the way she does, you have to expect that some people will not like you.

If she would go away, I would like her fine.

There are plenty of people born into wealth and privilege who don't behave the way she does. We hate her because she is aggressively pretentious and narcissistic. Not because she is "perfect" (in what universe?).

I find anyone who aspires to incite envy in others to be unlikable. It's not some deep mystery. It's an unlikable quality. Whatever her actual intentions, that's how she comes across.

Agree [127]. anyone who behaves that way is fundamentally hateful. that sort of passive-aggression is always born of deep emptiness. people who have basic levels of self-esteem don't need to "feel superior" every moment of the day. YUCK!!

oh and the thing about her being a sleep-around is not slander. in her early interviews(90s) she often talked about sneaking out and meeting boys and being more interested in guys than her studies.

[129] good one! I'm not.

I have experienced this sort of behavior in my real life- it's the prep school version of "mean girl". She's never grown out of it, which also speaks volumes to her stunted and myopic emotional landscape. The more so since she was not one of the popular girls in her school. Again, her earlier interviews are revealing.

Its been said loads of times that HW is full of people who still think and act like their in high school. Paltrow appears to be no exception, which makes her attempts to be "above it all", especially "regular people", so grating.

You sound like someone who tries to impress others with words you don't quite understand and unnecessary affectations in your writing. Gwyneth Paltrow probably drives you crazy because her pretensions are far more sophisticated than yours.

Because she's completely tone deaf. She goes through best friends like kleenex and she seems incapable of not tooting her own to the media at least weekly. That and her quack medical advice make her seem like someone to avoid and it's impossible to b/c the media been shoving her down our throats for nearly 20 years.

You do realize her latest "cookbook" had "recipes" for toasting bread and how to boil an egg?! She thinks everyone is far less intelligent than her, and has far inferior taste, and therefore must be told what to do and how to do everything. I do not find her beautiful. There are women working at the grocery store who are more beautiful. She has no comprehension that not everyone wants to "be her" or look like her. It has nothing to do with jealousy. And if her husband really has cheated on her, then her representation of a "perfect life" is false and laughable.

She comes off as full of herself.

I don't care for her. I know that part of the reason why I don't is because of the way that her publicist tried so hard to push her as 'the new Grace Kelly'.

IMO, she looks like the tall gangly daughter of Sissy Spacek if she'd spent the summer using SUN-IN.

by Anonymousreply 14403/18/2014

Grace Kelly had beauty, class, and elegance. Gwyneth has none of those qualities. In fact, she's not beautiful; she's looks a "Swiss Miss" drag queen. She has positively no class because she has to broadcast to the world that only she thinks she has class. La Paltrow is not elegant - an aging 42 year old woman does not wear flip flops in public nor has her sagging, cellulited ass hanging out for those who have the misfortune to see it. Grace Kelly was a movie superstar one of the great Hollywood screen immortals. Gwyneth's career was soley due to money and connections and nothing else. The woman is an ugly, deluded, self-important, talentless, arrogant, insufferable, cloying airhead.

by Anonymousreply 14503/21/2014

R145 so I take it you don't care for her? I think you may have missed a derogatory adjective or seven.

And let's not kid ourselves Grace Kelly was all smoke and mirrors too. Class and elegance? She screwed everything that walked. Just because the studio system was far more protective of a star's image back then, doesn't mean they were any more refined.

The only thing I would say is that, in general, stars of the classic era had a better work ethic (though Kelly is obviously not the best example of this). They knew they had a job to do, didn't pretend they were solving world peace by acting in movies, and didn't whine about how hard it was to be famous.

Grace Kelly marriage was a business deal. I doubt she ever loved that guy. Her grace was a fabricated PR ploy. At least Goop married out of love and never famewhored her private relationships for fame or money.

Both very beautiful women though!

And what the hell is wrong with that? Do you blame her?!?

Grace Kelly is a memorable movie star. She was absolutely stunning in "Rear Window" -- every movie critic agrees, and as long as that movie is considered a classic directed by a master, then Grace Kelly's Hollywood legend will endure.

What has Gwyneth done that is comparable to acting opposite of Gary Cooper in "High Noon," which takes place in real time? She doesn't hold a candle to Grace Kelly.

Who cares what Grace's personal life was like. Her movies will endure forever. I have no desire to ever see that Shakespeare movie ever again. Does anybody?

Would Grace Kelly have done IronMan? Or wear a fat suit?

When she first got with Chris Martin the British media implied that it was a fake relationship and that she was using Martin as cover for someone else. I kind of believed it as they did not seem to be suited to one another. However, a photo appeared in the newspaper of them, it was taken when they were unaware. Goop was pregnant at the time and Martin had put his head to Goop's pregnant stomach, he seemed to be goofing around and Goop was laughing. They seemed a very genuine happy couple.

As for her career I have seen very few of her movies. I thought she was very good in Shallow Hal to the point that I completely forgot that she was Goop, She was excellent in Sliding Doors. The only other movie I have seen of hers is Avengers Assemble, she had very little to do and very little screen time. For someone who has won an Oscar she now seems to be no more than a bit part actress.

I think anyone would be very silly to take any dietry or medical advice from anyone who isn't qualified and that includes Goop.

As for Martin he seems like a genuine good guy.
