but harvey's wife, georgina, is 100 times better looking than gwyneth and has her own $, a fact i have never been able to process
I feel like I'm in a dream. But it can't be a dream because there are no boy dancers!
Saw her interviewed after she did some cookbook, after traveling around with Mario Batali. You would have thought she was the first woman to ever cook. Beyond pretentious.
All this Gwenyth Paltrow hate is just so heart-warming! As much as I liked SIL, she did not deserve that Oscar, she was really the weakest perfomer of that crop. Cate Blanchett and Fernanda Montenegro out acted and outclassed her in every way possible.
Sadly, she's not even in the running for my worst Oscar Winner for BA. Julia Roberts, Helen Hunt, Meryl Streep( for Out of Africa, I like her in everything else, and think she should have won over my next mention especially) and Sandra Bullock actually make me spit up bile.
This means Gwenyth is back in my five worst!
Re: Meryl Streep, I loved her in Kramer vs.Kramer and Sophie's Choice. I thought she would have been a very worthy winner over either Gwenyth or Sandra, but I just could not stand OofA, and for some reason I thought she had won for that role.
Back to Gwenyth... yeah, she's a twit. I knew people like her back in the day, but most people grew out of that pretentious phase after their teens.
In any case, ITA she's pretentious but also agree with those saying TV is useful in teaching second languages. I wonder what Spanish stations would be available in London anyway? I imagine the major French networks are easy enough to get.
Gwyneth Paltrow is awful and her Oscar was undeserved, but she was really good in Two Lovers, with Joaquin Phoenix, and The Royal Tenenbaums. I think she's an actress who should only ever have played supporting roles. She's terrible as a lead.
^^ Love it! She really is a silly twit.
Sometimes I think that Gwynnie is just messing with us, as though this is her idea of performance art or (more likely) some kind of marketing strategy to keep people talking about her. Surely nobody can be this ridiculous without making a conscious effort?
I may be in the minority on this, but in the movie A Perfect Murder, I was rooting for Michael Douglas and Viggo Mortensen .
"One of the sad signs of our times is that we have demonized those who produce, subsidized those who refuse to produce, and canonized those who complain."~~Thomas Sowell
And I think Gwyneth is completely right about plastic surgery so I don't get ragging on her for not wanting to get it but also not ruling it out. There are so many OTHER things you can rag on her about, why rag on something where she's being sensible and not pretentious?
Delete. Wrong Thread.
She's just this pretentious thing who has no idea how the other half lives. She's a kindred spirit with the Romneys.. IMO (The other side of the coin)

Gwenyth Paltrow was truly like the box of stale raisins in the bag of Halloween Candy.
