Gwyneth Paltrow is wearing too much makeup quotes the headlines for saying something ridiculously pretentious so often now, we almost forgot she’s an Academy Award winning actress. It’s almost like her sometimes condescending and offensive musings have eclipsed her actual talent.
But is Paltrow super snobby—or just horribly misunderstood? Read some of her quotes and you be the judge. Where is the great bar with organic wine? Where do I get a bikini wax in Paris?
Even for two years or something, and come back when they go to senior school. Just what kids want to do, pick avocados. I like bread and cheese and wine, and that makes my life fun and enjoyable. Weird, since she’s also claimed she cut out all booze and bread in other interviews. She’s French, so she’s teaching them French, and their previous nanny was Spanish, so they’re fluent in Spanish.
But you’re not having any fun. Remember when we were at Jay’s concert and Panjabi MC comes on and you do your crazy Indian dance? When I pass a flowering zucchini plant in a garden, my heart skips a beat. I don’t hold on to fear as much as I used to, because I’ve learned a lot about genuinely not caring what strangers think about me. It’s very empowering, and I’ve learned a lot of that from Jay—Shawn Carter—Z, because his approach to life is very internal. It’s a very good lesson to learn. We have great dinner parties at which everyone sits around talking about politics, history, art and literature—all this peppered with really funny jokes.
Are those Juicy jeans that you’re wearing? I thought, I can’t stay here. I have to get back to Europe. At a 2014 tech conference, Gwyneth said reading nasty things about herself on the web is akin to warfare.
