Gwyneth Paltrow: Thanksgiving Is My Favorite Holiday!

Gwyneth Paltrow: Thanksgiving Is My Favorite Holiday!

Gwyneth Paltrow keeps her head down as she is picked up by a chauffeur-driven Mercedes from her London home on Monday.

In the 36-year-old actress’s latest GOOP newsletter, she shares, “Thanksgiving is, without a doubt, my favorite holiday. I love when everyone comes together and celebrates the idea of gratitude, something we all mean to do every day, but seem to lose sight of most of the time. I also love the cooking – the days of planning and chopping and basting. This year, I decided to work out three variations on the traditional meal: a big group, a small gathering and a cozy dinner for two… Turkey will always be the main event of Thanksgiving (at least in my house)…”

    what the fuck did she do to her hair?

  • Top Gun


  • Iris

    Proof that anyone can look beautiful with fancy dresses and a team of stylists.

  • Salma

    Gwyn’s hair looks really coarse in those pics.

  • kenley

    I can’t believe that’s Gwyneth Paltrow.

  • Lynn

    Everyone goes through bad hair days. I think she’s lovely and her thought on the 3 variations sounds great. It shows she even puts aside some one on one time with someone special:)

  • LINA


  • Rachel

    This is beyond a typical bad hair day. How does she comb that bush? As for the recipes, kudos to the chef that wrote them for her!

  • bejeebus

    “a cozy dinner for two…..”
    hmmmm……i think this is a multiple choice. by “cozy dinner for two” gwyneth meant…..
    1) her and madge
    2) her and a.rod
    3) her and mario batali
    3) her and her ego
    ….b/c we know for sure she didn’t mean her and her husband!

  • Calvin

    She is one homely chick—sorry, just had to say that.

  • anonymous.

    Does she have extensions in her hair? That would be odd considering how short is it, but it’s all knotty at the top, looks like it could be extesions. If not, what the heck did she do to get such knotty hair, was she out in 100mph winds or something?!?!?!

  • diorette

    Looks like she’s wearing horse hair.

  • Wolfman

    Paltrow got hid hard by the ugly stick

  • nk

    Remember few years back when Gwenny said to the world that she was the ONLY actress in Hollywood who is a real natural BLOND, who never colored her hair…. zzz. Sit down Granny.

  • Anny2

    She looks like shit but those boots are to die for!

    My friends and I use to wear boots like that in the 60′s.

    Gwyn’s researching a new part.

    She’s playing a bag lady!

    Does this woman still have a husband?

  • Velvet

    Yikes, that’s a hot mess!

  • frannie

    Sorry, I have no kind words for that look.

  • Coffee

    She looks dirty, greasy, and smelly





  • pashy

    I think Gwyneth could look relatively attractive if she bathed at least once every two weeks. And did her hair.

  • Jane

    She’d look a hundred times better if she’d stop bleaching her hair.

  • hmmm

    hmmm….imagine what she looks like when she wakes up in the morning? poor Chris.

  • N2

    Lizzie Grubman meets Heidi from the Hills.

  • Cassie

    Gwyneth has a nice head of hair. There’s no reason she should look so bad even if she isn’t on the red carpet. She looks like she hasn’t combed it for days.

  • twitters

    This is what double processed hair looks like without the benefit of a world class beautician. Don’t do it folks!

  • chewbacca
  • jody

    How pretentious is this woman?

    Chris Martin is so chill and hot.
    His concert was AWESOME.
    Take my advise Chris and RUN before it’s too late.


    Her natural hair color is brown. She should stop bleaching her hair, it looks like it is heavily damaged and thinning, oh, and she never said she was natural blonde, I recalled reading an interview where she not only said the opposite, she actually described the ‘double process’ her colorist used to bleach it all the way out. Looking at that ever widening part, she needs to stop it. Give it a rest for a few months.

  • T

    I don’t even like her, but she why so many hateful comments? She doesn’t look that bad. However, I do agree with her marriage. They are never together, it’s very odd.

  • Zoe

    I think she looks horrible. She’s managed to make Katie Holmes look good. Quite a feat!

  • Jay

    I wonder what most of you look like LOL.. for crying out loud, she has to be dressed up EVERYDAY? Give me a break.

  • andromeda

    No person, celebrity or otherwise, should go out with hair that unkempt. It’s a simple fact. Put it up in a pony tail at least! No shame in that! Even if you’re going to the hairdresser and your hair looks terrible anyway, put that hot mess up.


    I knew they had cranberry pills, but you can get turkey pills? Gwyn? Doll? Go find cranberries and pumpkin pies in London. Good luck.

  • yuck

    Can’t believe this woman is a cosmetics model. She looks like a dirty hobo.

  • GP Fan

    It’s sad that the same five people have the same lame comments over and over when it comes to GP.

    Anyone with a brain knows that curly hair is never that pretty if not fixed up. When you have curly hair that short, yes, it Tends to fro out like that. DUH.

    GP is a natural blonde. She was born as a blonde and grew up as a blonde. Mostly everyone’s hair becomes darker as they age–again, common sense. Her roots may be darker than a lighter blonde, but her roots are more blonde than brunette. If anything, she is a dirty-blonde.

    Come out of the cave people with the lame senses of reality and welcome to the 21st century!!!!!

  • Life is the Pitts

    CLINIQUA @ 11/24/2008 at 1:14 pm Her natural hair color is brown.

    wrong…she is a natural blonde.

  • Lauren

    I don’t think it’s an issue of curly hair. Gwyneth’s hair looks more wavy than curly and I think it’s a grooming issue. My hair is slightly curlier than hers and it never looks that bad. As long as she washes and styles it, her hair should look just fine. If she goes without proper grooming, like in these photos, then the result isn’t so pretty. :-(


    NUMBERS # 1 AND # 11….I think she went through a wind tunnel somewhere, or a small tornado in the parking lot….That is without a doubt, the WORSE her hair has looked……It looks as if she processed it herself and left the bleach on WAY to long…..She needs some serious help….

  • Judy

    Can’t understand all the hate here. I think she looks great. OK, the hair is a disappointment, but any girl who looks that good in jeans and boots deserves to be cut some slack.

  • Stella

    I am not surprised by the feedback. Gwyneth is hardly recognizable here. This may be the worst set of celebrity candids I’ve seen on this blog.

  • shadobox

    why is she celebrating thanksgiving…in london?

  • kay

    Turkey the main event?

    Isn’t Chris a vegetarian??

  • lisa

    Um, minus the hair, which looks like it is thinning???? she looks freaking amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!11

  • eliza

    Not very flattering pictures. It’s definitely the hair. Bet poor Gwyneth would like these to disappear. She usually looks very attractive.

  • Lola

    She is celebrating Thanksgiving because expat Americans all over the world do it with whatever ingredients they can get which remind them of home. She naturally has thick, slightly wavy, dirty blond hair which takes some effort to make look as smooth as it normally does. This is firsthand information- believe or disbelieve. You seem to be enjoying the debate, but the level of vitriol is astonishing- all because a woman didn’t comb her hair properly to get from her front door to the curb? Who cares? If you think that’s cause for divorce, you have serious problems and I pity your spouses. Save your hatred for war criminals like George Bush who took us into an illegal war in Iraq, instead of tracking and killing the actual perpetrators of the 9/11 attacks, spending money on education, healthcare, etc… Your jealousy of Gwyneth is so pathetic. Really. Get a life, because with every insult you throw, you only expose more deeply how much you want hers.
