Even Gwyneth Paltrow’s Dad Has Called Her an Asshole
As one of America’s most hate-able white girls, it’s not that surprising to hear anybody you know talk shit about Gwyneth Paltrow. In 2013, she was voted the “most hated celebrity,” mostly on the grounds that she’s rich and un-relatable, and she’s done little in the past three years to change that.
But while it’s not surprising that any average person would shake their heads at anything Gwyneth Paltrow does and mutter the word “asshole” under their breaths, would you believe that her dad thought the same thing too?
In an interview with Harper’s Bazaar, which bizarrely featured images of Gwyneth wearing bathing suits and LBDs in a Brooklyn grocery store, she recalled the time her dad gave her a reality check.
“When I was maybe 27 years old and kind of at the height of my movie stardom-it was around the time of the Oscar and this and that. I think I was very much believing my own hype, which how could you not? I was sitting with my dad, feeling great about my life and everything that was happening, and he was like, ‘You know, you’re getting a little weird…You’re kind of an asshole.‘ And I was like, ‘What the hell?‘ I was totally devastated. But it turned out to be basically the best thing that ever happened to me.”
Of course, things probably would have turned out even better for Gwyneth if her father hadn’t passed away in 2002 from a heart attack so he could keep giving her some much needed reality checks, but what can we say?
Life always takes the good ones too soon.
