Although Gwyneth Paltrow is one of the biggest celebrities on the planet (what with her blockbuster movies and award-winning films), she is often found to be in the limelight for her pretentious and annoying quotes about herself and her lifestyle. Read through this post and let us know if not all of these make you just cringe!
#1 Reacting to a Flowering Zucchini Plant
“When I pass a flowering zucchini plant in a garden, my heart skips a beat.” Really? There has to be more to life than this, Gwyneth (we but she won’t be trying these lovely bacon dishes anytime soon).
#2 Getting the Best in Paris
“When you go to Paris and your concierge sends you to some restaurant because they get a kickback, it’s like, ‘No. Where should I really be? Where is the great bar with organic wine? Where do I get a bikini wax in Paris?” On our end, all we can say is, just go back home and get all of those!
#3 Feeling Like Her Life is War
“You come across (online comments) about yourself and about your friends, and it’s a very dehumanizing thing…It’s almost like how, in war, you go through this bloody, dehumanizing thing…My hope is, as we get out of it, we’ll reach the next level of conscience.” Nothing says war like reading comments about yourself online. Someone needs to try to go to an actual battlefield…
#4 Comparing America to Europe
“We have great dinner parties at which everyone sits around talking about politics, history, art and literature—all this peppered with really funny jokes. But back in America, I was at a party and a girl looked at me and said, ‘Oh, my God! Are those Juicy jeans that you’re wearing?’ and I thought, I can’t stay here. I have to get back to Europe.” Please do!
#5 Belittling Cheese from a Can
“I’d rather smoke crack than eat cheese from a tin.” Go right ahead, no one’s stopping you!
#6 Managing Her Child’s Diet
“They love a brown rice stir-fry, but they also love their ‘Coke of the week.'” Thank you mom for this solitary Coke! So we guess you can stay out of the list of the world’s worst moms, huh?
“My daughter gravitates toward fresh fruit and raw nuts but will inhale a bag of hot Cheetos at the airport. It’s all about balance.” It’s balance when you make your daughter smell the food instead of eating it?
#7 Achieving Balance Between the Natural and Artificial
“You know, I use organic products, but I get (laser treatments). It’s what makes life interesting, finding the balance between cigarettes and tofu.” Kind of a double-standard there, Gwyneth.
#8 Having It Harder Than Working Moms
“I think to have a regular job and be a mom is not as, of course there are challenges, but it’s not like being on set.” Yes. It’s not like working moms have personal assistants, a contract to work for just a few months a year, millions of dollars…Yes, it’s always harder for you, Gwyneth.
#9 Living Without Vegenaise
“We basically can’t live without Vegenaise—it’s a little out of control.” Beware of an upcoming Vegenaise shortage, Gwyneth! Then you’ll really see out of control.
#10 Being Who She Truly Is
“I am who I am. I can’t pretend to be somebody who makes $25,000 a year.” And we really can’t pretend to like you!
