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]
The New Year is upon us, and while resolutions and wishes are abound, we’re wondering what’s brewing in the world of cinema. Anticipation is already sky-high for the third film of The Twilight Saga and the first half of the final film of the Harry Potter series, but what else is waiting in the wings? We’ve got Angelina Jolie in a wig, Megan Fox in a corset, and an uber buff Jake Gyllenhaal.
Here are 10 movies worth your $12.50 + popcorn in 2010.
The Wolfman: February 12th
Benicio Del Toro has been holding out on us! Typically attracted to critic-friendly films (Traffic, Things We Lost in the Fire, Che), Del Toro gets horrific for Valentine’s Day weekend in The Wolfman,starring as the legendary moon-hatin’ monster. Critics’ Choice-nominatedEmily Blunt plays his fur-lovin’ love interest and always-great Anthony Hopkins co-stars as Del Toro’s father.
Alice in Wonderland: March 5th
Tim Burton + Johnny Depp. Do we really need to say more? Previous collaborations of the eccentric duo include Edward Scissorhands, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, and Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street. This fantastical gothic version of Lewis Carroll’s classic tale is sure to be visually stunning and over-the-top. Naturally Johnny Depp is The Mad Hatter, while Australian actress Mia Wasikowska snagged the role as Alice. Burton’s wife Helena Bonham Carter plays the part of The Red Queen with Anne Hathaway as The White Queen. Other highlights include Alan Rickman as The Caterpillar and Michael Sheen as The White Rabbit. Can you feel our excitement?
Just as award season gets underway and Critics Choice Movie Awards buzz spreads about Robert Downey, Jr.‘s performance in Sherlock Holmes, Paramount has released the official poster art for the sequel to his 2008 blockbuster action movie, Iron Man. In the sequel, aptly titled Iron Man 2, Scarlett Johansson makes her superhero debut as the Black Widow, donning skin tight leather. We’re not complaining. [Photo: Paramount Pictures]
Check out more brand new production stills from Iron Man 2, as well as some previously-released shots below.
As we bid farewell to 2009, we’d like to take a moment to honor the year’s most atrocious red carpet fashion disasters. So many stars said “yes we can” to terrible outfits that it was hard to narrow down the group to just 9, but the celebrities below truly went above and beyond the call of duty doodie with these craptastic looks. From layers of lace, to body suits and booty shorts, we’ve got the best of the worst for your viewing pleasure. Enjoy!
