    IMHO it really has very little to do with fashion or "elite people," whoever they are, and more to do with keeping Gwenyth's name recognition up. I can't even remember the name of her last movie. There is probably a whole generation of kids who don't know who she is. She is competing with the likes of Kim Kardashian and I suspect among the younger generation Kim is winning. Other than a couple of movies, a famous mother, and a famous husband, what exactly has Gwenyth got to offer the world? Oh wait, didn't she win and Oscar?

    Okay, clearly I am not in her target market!

    (First time using the multiple quote function - very cool!)

    I was thinking more along the lines of Cumquat Lemon Zest. What about Nashi Pear.

    And, to be fair, her role was Ironman's sort-of girlfriend. It's not like she's carrying the movie. But, still, she's in these super successful movies and she has an Oscar and a following (she has her website with lots of hits) so why shouldn't TPTB like her and give her work?

    Cumquat Lemon Zest is cool but not Nashi Pear. It's still too close to ordinary.

    And she has all those A list friends she loves to talk about to put in a good word for her. As insufferable as she appears to us, she knows how to play nice with the right people. She won't be like Adrien Brody, who ended up doing one of the few movies in recent memory that would cast Lindsay Lohan.

    #8, the one with the sweatshirt and moccasins that they call "sneakers", looks like something my former neighbor would wear. She also had dreds, a dog that was half-wolf who terrorized the neighborhood, drove a Grateful Dead van, and worked in a cafe that catered to goths and vampire wannabes.

    The information the website mentioned is referring too is called goop.com

    It's an very upscale designer good shopping website. Goop.com is is geared towards a very limited clientale. It's like haute couture.

    I don't get the Gwynth hate? But I don't follow any celeb news, really (the 450K wardrobe intrigued me, though).

    I like her as an actor, I think she is usually pretty good in the movies she is in?

    all that clothes would look silly on me. I like the leather jacket though.

    I remember Anthony Hopkins talking about her and saying she and Jodi Foster were the most professional actresses he's worked with...She just has no concept of "reality" in terms of normal life.

    I love me Gwyneth. And she deserved her Oscar. Suck it, Blanchett.

    I don't know if I love her, but I certainly like her as an actress and loved her in SIL, where she glowed the whole movie. And I love her in the Iron Man series.

    And the more hate she gets the more I like her, which is partially how I became a huge fan of Lysacek, Meissner, etc....

    Is that the red one? I wish I looked good in stuff like that. I like that look.

    MacMadame doesn't feel threatened by Gwyneth. Gwyneth feels threatened by MacMadame. ;)

    I have liked her in what I've seen (Ironman, SIL and Shallow Hal) but I like who I like based on what they do, not on who hates them. Plus I don't hate Gwynie. I just think she's fun to mock.

    Btw, Goop is Gwyneth's own site. A couple of posts here have talked about it as if it's some other site that hired her to put that column together. (I think one of mine might imply that though I wasn't thinking of it that way since I know Goop is her site-I was just writing unclearly. :lol:)

    As insufferable as she can be due to her...distance from us common-folk, I don't really know if she's really out-of-touch with reality. Her reality is just totally different from ours and we can't relate. It's not just about her being an actress or even a celebrity, but just the way she has been brought up and what she was exposed to.

    Anyway, I actually find her to be incredibly underrated as an actress actually despite her Oscar because her Oscar receives so much hate to this very day. IMO, her win is far from a robbery because I found her performance was excellent even if not up to the standard of Blanchett or Montenegro (I disagree about Blanchett because her performance wasn't as good as the myth of her "robbery" makes it out to be and Elizabeth was such a bad movie especially compared to other Elizabeth biopics out there much less to the well-written and acted Shakespeare in Love). IMO, if we're going to call Paltrow's great performance winning over Blanchett a robbery, then I'm going to say that Blanchett robbed Virginia Madsen, Laura Linney, and yes Natalie Portman when she won her Oscar for her middling Katharine Hepburn portrayal. BTW, I actually like Blanchett and thought her performance in Notes on a Scandal was just as Oscar-worthy, if not more so, than Jennifer Hudson's for Dreamgirls.

    This whole thread just cracked me up! :lol: Considering what Gwyneth wears and eats (and still manages to have panic attacks, Vitamin D deficiency and anemia!), I think I'll stick to my own rhythm, thankyouverymuch.

    I just can't take Gwyneth seriously. She's not only out of touch with us peasants (I guess I should speak for myself here), she seems woefully out of touch with herself!

    O-

    Wait, Goop is a thing? I just thought it was a nickname internet people came up with.

    The only things I really know about her are that she was annoying in that movie where she had an English accent, Good as the big girl in Shallow Hal (annoying as the skinny version), she has a kid named Apple, she's married to someone in a post '90's band, and has questionable taste in girlfriends. (Courtney Love)

    The clothes are ugly and frumpish. (Except the Victoria Beckham dress) Had I the funds, Goop would be on the bottom of my list.

    Didn't she do a movie where she did Karaoke and then recorded some country music in real life?

    It's obvious that I am not as up to date on all things Goop as I should be.

    Oh shut up :p I am not. I just seem to find that the more I defend someone around the internet when I think they're being unfairly criticized, the more I ended up finding things about them that I like. And I do like her as an actress.

    There are certainly celebrities I don't like that are popular to pick on, eg., Sandra Lee.

    Do you mean Sliding Doors? I loved her in that film and she had hands down one of the best English accents i've heard an American do consistently in a film.

    I agree with antmanb. Her English accent was near perfect in Sliding Doors; only a tiny nuance here and there told me she was not born here.

    I am always shocked by actors' excellence in a foreign accent. For instance, for the longest time I didn't know Hugh Laurie wasn't an American. His American accent in House was perfect.

    As to Gwyneth, I think she is a good actress, not the greatest but OK.

    I will give her props for being able to to an English accent. A lot of US actor's can't or won't. Actors from UK or Australia have no problem at least attempting to do US accents.

    Other than that, I don't care too much for her. But she seems pleased enough with herself that she could care less what others think of her.

    I like her mother, Blythe Danner. She is older but I find her more attractive and a better actress.

    I heard some horrible American accents in a lot of UK television shows though.
