Kate Hudsonand Gwyneth Paltrow must be the best of friends—they’re apparently joined at the hip. The blonde scions of Goldie Hawn and Blythe Danner clung to each other for dear life at the 150th birthday gala for Chopard jewelry in NYC last night. While their companionship may have been contractually obligated, it’s also possible Miss Hudson put up with being called “Katherine” all night so on-lookers wouldn’t have as good a view at her alleged boob job. See photos of these stars and more in the red carpet gallery below.
Lourdes Leon may be a 13-year-old girl with fabulous style, her own fashion line and Madonna for a mother, but she’s still a 13-year-old girl. She certainly seemed to be giving her material mom a hard time, having to be pulled over to pose at last night’s “Bent For Learning” yoga benefit in NYC. The teens on Glee may think Madonna is the best, but that doesn’t mean her kid never treats her like the worst. Even more awkward appearances at the event included Sean Lennon‘s doorman outfit and Gwyneth Paltrow‘s wrinkled go-go dress (had she just made out with William Shatner on a faraway planet?). Way to sell yoga, guys. Check out these stars, the ominpresent Kelly Bensimon and more in the gallery below.
Judging from the pastcouple of red carpet film premieres we’ve covered, there’s a definite trend of short-shorts as formalwear happening these days. Amanda Seyfried and Gwyneth Paltrow both showed off their gams this week, but they’re hardly the first actresses to don tiny pants on the red carpet. For a complete look at who has the shortest inseam (okay, that would be Katy Perry), check out our gallery inspired by Z.Z. Top. These girls have legs, and they definitely know how to use them.
Hey, Scott Stapp is growing his hair back out! Oh wait, that bad-ass in the shades, soul patch and leather jacket is Adrien Brody, reminding everyone at yesterday’s Iron Man 2 premiere that, despite winning an Academy Award for playing a Polish classical musician in The Pianist, “A-Bro” is just a dude from Queens at heart. Dude is totally not going to wuss up Predators at all! So what if he was in the worst Wes Anderson movie? Ayyy!
It’s a shame Brody didn’t think to pose next to Masters of Macho Mickey Rourke and Sylvester Stallone, who spent time mugging with Iron Man himself, Robert Downey Jr., frightening us with their matching colored sunglasses. See these stars and others like Gwyneth Paltrow, Scarlett Johansson, Samuel L. Jackson and Don Cheadle in the red carpet gallery below.
What’s this? A story about Gwyneth Paltrow not involving her self-obsessed GOOP website? It’s true! Paltrow spoke to Vogue recently and admitted that she is not as pure of heart as she leads us all to believe – in reality she’s even a bit of a mean girl.
“Oh yes, I can be mean,” she tells the magazine. “I can cave in to gossip. I can ice people out and I can definitely harbour revenge. In fact, I’m having a situation right now with a friend where I’m feeling pretty angry. But revenge is corrosive and it doesn’t make me feel good. I’ll wake up in the morning and think, ‘Ugh, I feel terrible’, and suddenly realise, ‘Ah, that’s why. I’m holding on to so much hate.” First of all, you know she told them to keep the words “harbour” and “realise” all British with the “u” and “s” still in them, and second of all who is the iced-out friend?? We must know! The Telegraph speculates that it’s Madonna, but that seems too easy. This also isn’t the first time Gwyneth has spoken publicly about a feud, in her GOOP newsletter last year, she openly discussed a former “frenemy” that she had some major dramz with years ago. (People speculated that the frenemy was former pal and Affleck/Damon double-dater Winona Ryder.) Why must you be so cryptic, Gwynnie? Tell us your stories!
Dare we say though, that even though this story doesn’t paint Gwyneth in the most flattering light, at least it makes her seem half-human, with actual emotions and feelings? Here we thought she was just a leggings-clad robot with a bad case of Anglophilia and smugly annoying dietary restrictions. [Photo: Getty Images]
Teri Hatcher apparently has a lot to teach us about multitasking, how best to relax on a comfy armchair, and being a mom. At least, that’s what we gleaned after checking out the prototype of her new website, punnily titled GetHatched.com. ”Hatched” because it’s her name, but also because it’s for chicks. Get it? The pictures of Hatcher on the site are amazingly cheesy but show us how effortless it is to handle everyday situations (Holding groceries in one hand and a baby bottle in the other! Wearing leggings while over 40!). Considering it’s part of DisneyFamily.com, the generic, All-American mom thing makes sense, we just wish it wasn’t so cheeseball.
Hatcher, likeGwyneth Paltrow before her, has decided that the world needs a celebrity to turn to to find out how to live. While Gwynnie just works on honing her superiority complex over at GOOP.com, Hatcher hopes her just-for-women site gives off “a sense of honesty, candidness and the understanding that wacky things happen to all of us,” but she promises that it “will not be the Teri Hatcher reality site.” So…iVillage meets Desperate Housewives minus the Susan plotlines?
We just have to say, thank God for the internet, otherwise, we’d all be unclothed, starving, and generally unable to function. Sometimes when we forget how to, like, survive, we think of the name of our other favorite celebrity site, Matthew McConaughey‘s Just Keep Livin’, and remember, oh yeah, that’s what’s we’re supposed to do. Thanks, celebs.
Oh, come on! Another awards show for movie stars after the Oscars? You gotta be kidding! Well, not quite. Despite the attendance of stars like Gwyneth Paltrow, Clive Owen, Hugh Grant and Michelle Rodriguez—who had her trademark leather jacket on over her gown, you go Michelle—Abu Dhabi’s Laureus Awards celebrated the accomplishments of our world’s greatest athletes, including Tony Hawk, Monica Seles and Julius Irving. Who knew Kevin Spacey and Kyle MacLachlan had such love for the game? Or, for that matter, the United Arab Emirates?
The Academy Awards are arguably the classiest annual event in entertainment. Yet some A-listers likeCher, Cameron Diaz and Demi Moore, all of whom work dang hard to keep their bodies taut and toned, can’t resist the urge to slut it up. We’re not sure if high slits, deep Vs, and revealing mesh are appropriate Oscars attire, but we’re not complaining. Here’s a collection of actresses for whom modesty is not their red carpet policy.

We’re hard on some celebrities at times when we don’t mean to be, but one actress who always manages to irritate us and we have no problem calling her out on it is Gwyneth Paltrow. Call it the holier-than-thou GOOP effect, but Gwynnie’s always talking about her life’s great obstacles and obsessions (What to do about these three pounds of holiday weight gain?! How to handle brain farts! Black leggings: my dirty little secret!) and it seems like nothing more than her own oblivious way of telling us all she’s loaded and has an expert advisor for everything we normal people handle on our own.
In this week’s edition of GOOP, Paltrow shills for her personal trainer Tracy Anderson, who was once responsible for sculpting Madonna’s rock hard everything until Madge fired her, and touts the Anderson technique for helping her get rid of her “batwings” and saggy butt. Spare us your fat talk Gwyneth, you’re talking to a serial Weight Watcher who regularly eats entire boxes of macaroni and cheese alone in the dark, we’re pretty sure you don’t know from saggy butts. If you do want to see exactly what it takes to get Gwyneth’s sculpted arms, check out the video she posted of Anderson showing off her moves. It’s especially fun to watch while squirting corn syrup into your mouth straight from the bottle.
The Anti-GOOP crowd just had more fuel added to their fire today when Gwyneth Paltrow decided to open her mouth and discuss her path to enlightenment.
Following a minor car crash last week after bringing her kids to school, Paltrow seems to have been rattled to the point where a detoxifying cleanse or a night out with William Joel just won’t purify her soul anymore. Instead, she wants to meditate her way to superiority. The star explained to the Telegraph “My New Year’s resolution is to learn how to meditate. It’s always sounded like something I should do, but I don’t know how to. My friends who do it say it’s really freakin’ brilliant. They say you can’t know the peace, awareness and contentment until you do it. My brain drives me mental.”
We know people who meditate, so it’s not that we’re judging her, it’s just one more soundbite we can add to a long line of Gwyneth-isms adding to that “my sh*t don’t stink” vibe we get from her. It’s enough to drive anyone mental, really. [Photo: Getty Images]
