Poor little Gwyneth Paltrow. The GOOP-y actress is apparently pissy over all the publicity her Iron Man 2 costar Scarlett Johansson is getting these days for her role as the sexy Black Widow. Paltrow plays the mousey Pepper Potts in the hit franchise, and is supposedly fuming that ScarJo’s being included in press for the flick (like on the cover of Entertainment Weekly) and she is not. Doesn’t the press know she specifically cleansed just to promote the flick with a bunch of mag covers? The audacity!
“Gwyneth was afraid she’d be upstaged by Scarlett and not being in the campaign was the final straw,” revealed an insider. “She is furious she’s been left out.”
Paltrow’s peeps deny the claims of jealousy, but we wouldn’t put it past her. After all, this is the lady who infamously included a little blind item in one of her GOOP newsletters that was reportedly about ex-BFF Winona Ryder. Gwyneth doesn’t play nice! [Photos: GettyImages]
“I’m high and clean and tight, man. It’s good to feel hungry. If you keep filling your tank when it’s three-quarters empty, you’re gonna run on old fuel. So you gotta drive it down to empty and let it work. I came down here to press a little reset and then head back down the road,” he told the Sunday Times magazine.
Right. Nice car analogy, Matteus. But last time we tried to “drive it down to empty” we broke down and had to call out for roadside assistance. So what we’re saying is…no freakin’ way. [Photo: Splash News Online]
The latest edition ofGwyneth Paltrow‘s e-newsletter GOOP dropped in our inboxes this morning, and once again the actress is championing the power of skipping solid foods to detox the body. This time Gwynnie is plugging something called the “Clean” cleanse, during which she existed on “mostly juice” for three weeks. That sounds about as pleasant as watching Shallow Hal, but the bony blond is heralding it as “amazing.”
Says Paltrow, “…this program allowed me to work and exercise regularly, something I cannot do if I am on a liquid-only detox. I followed it to the letter and I can report that it worked wonders. I feel pure and happy and much lighter (I dropped the extra pounds that I had gained during a majorly fun and delicious Ã¢â‚¬Å“relax and enjoy life phaseÃ¢â‚¬Â about a month ago).”
We want to like Gwyneth, we really do, but there’s something about her that’s just so exasperating. Maybe it’s all those “extra pounds” that bug us? Eh, whatever. We can’t be bothered to worry about it, as we’ve gotta go eat lunch – or as some people call it, “relax and enjoy life.”
Poor Coldplay singer Chris Martin. If it wasn’t bad enough having to deal with Gwyneth Paltrow and her GOOP-y lifestyle day in and day out, now he’s being targeted by Noel Gallagher (right) for being too squeaky clean. Gallagher, while speaking to Italian newspaper Corriere della Serra said that drugs are one of the biggest perks of the rock star life.
“I look at Chris Martin who says he has never taken drugs in his life and I think he is an idiot. Doing drugs is the most beautiful thing about being in a rock band.” Hilariously, Gallagher then said, “I stopped because it is bad for your health, brain, life and for people around you.” Before coming clean in 1998, Gallagher reportedly spent nearly two million dollars on drugs. Considering the fact that Gallagher is the poster boy for bad behavior and destructive relationships, we think Martin is doing just fine taking a different path — even if he dresses like Sergeant Pepper sometimes.

In an interview with the Associated Press recently, Gwyneth Paltrow not only spoke fluent Spanish for the entire thing, but she gushed about how amazing she, uh, we mean Spain, is. Not the first time Gwynnie has gushed about an adopted home, a few years ago she compared America to the UK and said, “The British are much more intelligent and civilized than the Americans.”
When asked about her love for Spain, Paltrow said: “It is so different from the United States. It seemed to have a history, and the buildings are years and years and years old. Here in the United States an old building is about 17 (years old), and over there it’s from 500 B.C., it’s incredible.” We think that’s great and technically we agree Spain is a beautiful, historic place, it’s just that, when Gwyneth says it, doesn’t it just sound kind of condescending? Here are a few more things that made our stomachs turn.
1. Gwyneth launched a Spanish-language version of her website, GOOP.com. 2. Gwyneth speaks to her children in Spanish at home (big whoop, we learned how to count to 20 in Spanish from Sesame Street). 3. Gwyneth would love to take an acting role in Spanish. Hey, if Penelope Cruz can keep getting work in English, anything es posible. 4. Gwyneth is writing a cookbook on Spanish-influenced cuisine.
Oh, por favor. We used to think Paltrow was cool but lately it’s all gotten to be too much. Makes us want to have at our old Rosetta Stone tapes so we can say with proper inflection, “Hey lady, don’t forget about Shallow Hal! That was you in that fat suit.” [Photo: WireImage]
She’s got the fiercest body ever known to mom-kind, but Gwyneth Paltrow was still unsure about getting her boobs out for recent film Two Lovers – so much so she checked with the director that they were up to the job. James Gray claims the yummy mummy invited him to check out her assets before committing to the role.
“Gwyneth told me ‘I don’t care about nudity, I’ll give you everything you need. But I’ve had two children and I just don’t think they look very good any more. Do me a favor, come into my trailer and I’ll show them to you and if you think they look OK I’ll do it.’ So I marched in there and I told her they looked great,” James says.
A satisfying day’s work there for both of them, we think. And just a little bit reassuring that even Gwyneth gets body issues too. [Photo: WireImage]
Today is Earth Day 2009! When it comes to protecting the environment, some celebrities talk the talk, but some really walk the walk. From sitting in a tree to preserve a garden to filling their rides with biodiesel fuel, these celebrities really go the extra mile to keep things green. [Photos: Splash News Online]
Both Gwyneth Paltrowand Jennifer Lopezhave been the subject of rumors about the allegedly parlous state of their marriages recently — and don’t think they don’t know it. Why else would both of them start waxing lyrical about the joys of motherhood and babies in this weeks’ issue of New! magazine, if not to drive it home that they’re REALLY VERY HAPPY THANK YOU?
“[Children] enrich your life in the most incredible way…At first I thought, “OK, that’s it, I’m done, no way will I have more.” Then my son turned two and you think, “Oh, I don’t want this to be the last two year old [I have]. Maybe I’ll do one more,” Gwyneth says. (Translation: Me and Chris are still doing it. Stick that in your pipe and smoke it!)
Whereas Jennifer chimes in in another interview, “Marc and I are enjoying being parents so much… Marc is so great. He gets up in the night and lets me sleep because I’m with them all day, for 18 hours, so he helps me then. He is all night and I am all day – that is how we do it.” (Translation: We are a TEAM. Marc and I are TOGETHER. OK?)
OK, we get it. No more nasty rumors until the next one of you “accidentally” forgets to wear their wedding ring in public. [Photos: Splash News Online]
