Gwyneth Paltrow Doesn’t Understand Why People Like Chris Brown More Than Her
ICYMI, in 2013 Gwyneth Paltrow was named the “Most Hated Celebrity,” on a list that included Kristen Stewart at #2, John Mayer at #4, Justin Bieber at #8, Anne Hathaway at #9 and Chris Brown at #20.
At the time, this ranking confused her (and frankly the rest of the world), and three years later, it still does.
“First of all, I was like, ‘I’m the most hated celebrity? More than, like, Chris Brown? What did I do,” Paltrow asked Stephen Sackur during a recent appearance on BBC News’s HardTalk.
While Sakur politely pointed out that Gwyneth has an uncanny way of making “people feel bad sometimes,” Gwyneth has a point.
What did she do to make America hate her more than they hate a noted fuckboy whose crimes include beating up his famous girlfriend, cheating on her, getting back together with her while dating somebody else, cheating on that girl, and even slut shaming his 2-year-old daughter?
But seriously, when we objectively think about it, what did Gwnyneth Paltrow do?
She got married to Chris Martin?
She named her first born daughter Apple?
She launched an all organic, super luxury lifestyle brand with a nonsense name?
She introduced the world to the concept of unconscious coupling?
Face it, Gwyneth’s biggest crime is that she’s not relatable, although she posits in the interview it’s because “my parents did well, and I was able to go to a fantastic school, and we grew up in New York City.”
Like it’s almost cute that Gwyneth has clearly never hired a publicist who had the balls to tell her the truth about why people don’t like her, but at the same time, it’s hard to resist the urge to shake your head whenever words come out of Gwyneth’s mouth.
As if on cue, in what can only be described as an effort to absolve us of any of the guilt we’d started to feel, Gwyneth went and said this:
“People tend to think that I eat just seaweed and a bit of air,” she said of her refined tastes. In reality, the actress said, “I have never had a horrible experience with French fries. French fries are my life!”
Sure they are, Gwen.
You, Blake Lively, and her meaty eyelids deserve each other.
