    I don't know much about her. But that kinda made me want to throw up, it was so obsessively worshipful.

    Vogue's lead article is always a little... too much.

    "a known Veela" PML

    Paltrow has a Vitamin D deficiency from the wonderful diet she's been on for years, and she's featured in Vogue for cooking? oh, the irony.

    For sure, she is beautiful. For the rest, I don't know : nobody's perfect !

    I don't think she's beautiful. She is an attractive woman to be sure, but we've been told she's beautiful so often that I can't believe I disagree. I don't want to diss her too much, but she has the weirdest neck. When she turns to the side it's all bent out of shape and freaks me out. Hmmm, snark much, lol.

    I've never thought she was beautiful. She's certainly not as attractive as her mother, even now at her mother's age.

    Plus, she's always seemed a bit too immature for my liking, in interviews. Now if she's on a late night talk show I happen to have on, it's my cue to go get my jammies on, wash up for the night or take a bathroom break.

    She was appealing when she was younger because her look fit that ingenue thing she has going on. But IMO that look doesn't translate as well as she ages. I can't say it ever occurred to me that she could be the most perfect person in the world, not even the top 100.

    The only reason they chose her is because I was out doing yardwork and missed vogue's phone call offering me the title. :p

    I'm guessing a lot of other women missed their phone call too.

    Me either, Norlite. I never thought she was as hot as people made her out to be, and for a while they were comparing her to Grace Kelly, and that made me cringe. And I never thought she was a great actress either. Serviceable yes, but no Meryl Streep. And her interviews are always so pretentious and self-serving. Go to her Goop website, and I promise you, you'll want to throttle her.

    I think she should; she's so annoying. Especially when she called Billy Joel "William" in one of her newsletters. :rolleyes:

    I'm sure my kitchen would be spotless and perfect if I could afford multiple adjoining houses and had a staff.

    Just saying.

    "Katie Lee Joel came over for dinner, and she brought her husband William....."

    I mean, REALLY!!!! :rolleyes:.

    I'm surprised Brad Pitt didn't leave skid marks on her when he left.

    All I can think about is what Kathy Griffin would do with this in her act. She's hilariously mocked Paltrow (justifiably IMO) in the past for her pretentiousness.

    I thought that too, but it looks like it's open viewing for the unwashed masses again....

    If she's so perfect why did the photoshop everything out of her face? She looks almost Victoria Beckham like in her robotness there.

    yeah me too. And I could have loose fitting jeans if I could spend hours a day with a personal trainer and someone to care for my kids.

    She is not pretty. She is ordinary in the looks department.

    I personally never got the animosity towards her or everything she does.

    That inimitable simper, that self-conscious model's mince. It appears to pain her to try to look pleasant. Can her agent please help her find clothing that a) fits her fleshless body and b) flatters her board-like figure? The only outfits I can think of her wearing are that pink thing she wore when she Oscared that hung on her shoulders like a hanger and that bizarre black boobie trap that she wore another year.

    Oh, I'm really sorry to be so mean. It's not my nature. I wouldn't if she weren't held up as a model of physical and mental beauty.

    Mine wouldn't :slinkaway

    I wouldn't look like that no matter what version of Photoshop.

    I think she looks great in posed photos. It's when she moves and opens her mouth that she looks and sounds silly.

    I think she's gorgeous and love that dress. Not so sure she's the most perfect tho I'd say yuna or Kristi yamaguchi.
