Gwyneth Paltrow Not Ready For 'The Gwyneth Show'

Gwyneth Paltrow Not Ready For 'The Gwyneth Show'

Gwyneth Paltrow (in a Roland Mouret dress, Alice + Olivia trench and Louboutin gladiators) celebrates the DVD release of designer Valentino Garavani and his business partner Giancarlo Giammetti‘s The Last Emperor at the VBH Gallery on New York City’s Madison Avenue on Tuesday night (October 27).

“I would do anything for Giancarlo and Valentino,” the 37-year-old actress told the WSJ. “When we were on a road trip in Italy for my 30th birthday, my father got pneumonia and…he just kind of died on me. It was horrible. But Giancarlo and Valentino were godsends. They came to my rescue. When somebody does a thing like that for you, well, you just love them beyond words.”

When asked if there will ever be a full-blown feature on her life, Gwyn told WWD, “I don’t think I would be an interesting enough subject. I’m just a typical busy working mother—there would be a lot of school runs, a lot of cooking, a lot of talking on the phone, a lot of e-mailing. Not six dogs and ski chalets [like Valentino], sadly.”

She has nice legs.
Everything else is blah.

# 2

I think that Blythe Danner is gorgeous, but her daught is not very pretty.

# 3

I wish they would retire the shoe booties!

# 4

For once I agree with her, a Gwyneth show would be boring.

# 5

America hater…She’s a fake.

# 6

I used to love her…
Wtf is going on with her knees?

# 7

I think she’s fabulous. How dear Valentino and Giancarlo were to her, as well. I agree – you never forget someone who stands with you in difficult times. The documentary on them is really stunning. They live in a different world.

“…just dies on me.” ??????????????? WTF!!?!?!?!?!?!?!!

What a GIGANTIC entitled, self-absorbed BITXCH!!! Brad Pitt must thank the Goddess every hour that this **** cheated on him and he found out so he could get rid of her.

I think the jacket is lovely.
She was wise to hide her dress because she tends to have terrible
taste in dresses.

I like her hair, but she needs to hire a better stylist.
That coat does not work with caged heels. Horrible choice of shoes.

I really do love her mother.
They do look alike except Gwynnie’s too plain jane though.

“When we were on a road trip in Italy for my 30th birthday, my father got pneumonia and…he just kind of died on me. It was horrible.

Is she talking about her dad kind of died on her. If so that’s a horrible thing to say. I Like her mom but Gwyneth is disgusting. She never should have been an actress. She only get acting jobs because of who her parents know. That’s why no talent cows like her end up in front of the camera.

I hate all of her outfits. The shoes are hideous.

The jacket is pretty but the constant assortment of super short dresses and skirts is boring and unflattering. She’s too predictable but I’ll give her credit for taking a risk for the coat.

Gwyneth could use a haircut. The lenght is alright but it has no style.
It’s so boring as it is right now.

I think she’s ridiculous but I’ll give her credit for admitting she’d be boring on a reality show. Even her cooking segment was dull and that was only a few minutes long.

Nice legs. Shame about the horse face.

Pretentious Paltrow strikes again.
Her legs are big and ugly like most WASPS.

She looks pretty cute there. Why does she usually look so bad? She is the only celebrity who is almost unrecognizable without good styling and makeup. That can be inspiring I guess depending on how you look at it. Anyone can look good if they invest enough time and money into their appearance.



Tinfoil Tranny…..
I agree.

She turns off so many people.
She is so annoying.

Is that really an Alice & Olivia trench? I love it! One of the few times I’ve liked something Gwyneth’s worn.
Agree, she should try something aside from the short dresses. The style is played out.

When did Gwyneth Paltrow become Alana Stewart?

She is a pale fug!!!

the shoes work with the dress she had on under.

Chris Martin is nuts.

If you can’t say something nice… don’t say anything at all…

well I better go.. I have nothing to say.. : {

at least she knows she’s boring.

Her body was never good, but she used to be pretty.
I don’t understand how did that change.
Perhaps she smokes and tans so her skin went south?

African Girl @ 10/29/2009 at 2:25 am

Okay, maybe it’s my non English speaking self who doesn’t understand GP’s cultured english, so someone please tell me this insipid woman did not just say “He kind of died on me” about her dad?
No one can be this stupid, so maybe she was really talking about something else….like her Goldfish but the writer misunderstood.

Maybe if she had put her father’s health ahead of her birthday celebrations, he would have gotten the medical help he needed instead of dying in Rome. But nobody comes between Gwynnie, Italian villas, and hobnobbing with the rich and famous.

I can’t believe her father had the nerve to die during her birthday celebration!

Please don’t comment about what her dad went through if you don’t know their history. Those are cruel things to say.

From past interviews, it’s pretty evident that she adores her dad. He died of cancer. However someone wants to spend his remaining days is none of our business. IMO, it’s better to die traveling and spending time w/ family than getting hooked up in the hospital.

And also, I think it’s pretty refreshing to have an actress NOT styled by Rachel Zoe & Co. Coz every actress is just beginning to look the same and follow the same trends.

Blythe Danner is lovely and growing old gracefully. I hope Gwyneth follows her example and not like other actresses out there who have an expressionless botox-ed face.

Agree, Blyther Danner always looks great but I don’t find anything refreshing about how Paltrow dresses. It’s always the same look with her. The short, short dress and the ugly mismatched heels. She not only follows trends, she overworks them to death.

She does use a stylist — Anna someone. The woman works for Vanity Fair. She should try someone new.

His cancer was in remission but he was weak and contracted pneumonia while in Italy. He died the next day of complications from pneumonia.

Gwennie looks about 60!

I know. But he has been battling cancer for a while. I was just pointing it out to the insensitive & judgmental comments that people made regarding her “so-called disregard for her father’s health”. It’s their family’s business how they want to spend their few days together. A parent dying is always tragic. Accusing someone you don’t know personally of not caring about a parents is just plain cruel.

I don’t think she’s the most stylish actress in Hollywood nor the prettiest. But I think she does wear what fits nicely on her and occasionally takes a chance that may or may not work. Again, I’m glad she’s not a Rachel Zoe-clone.

I guess I saw her on the documentary/cooking/travel show Spain.. on the Road again w/ Mario Batali. It just showed me another side of her. And I enjoyed that show immensely. I guess I just don’t get the “hate”…. especially the ugly comments about her & her dad got to me.

One of Bruce’s old friends later said that her birthday mattered more to him than his own health. It’s pretty sad.

With all that money she could buy ONE pair of attractive shoes, right? Is that such a crazy thought?

@ 37 — ITA, she is not very original and most of the time her clothes look awkward and ill-fitted.

GP takes very few fashion risks. She’s been rocking the same trends since her Iron Man press tour. She could do a lot worse than Rachel Zoe, who is not the only stylist in Hollywood.

She has it all. What a perfect life! A british husband too! –

@African Girl: Journalists usually clean that stuff up and it’s pretty awkward wording so I doubt it’s a misquote. Gwyneth just has the unfortunately habit of putting her foot in her mouth.

Wth! She cheated on Brad Pitt??


Remember when she sang in a movie? LOL.

wow, you are st00pid @ 10/29/2009 at 7:52 pm

@kittykat: It’s called being in shaped moron that is what is awesome about her legs

@wow, you are st00pid: I think the moron is the one who can’t spell stupid and doesn’t know the difference between in shape and in shaped.

Her legs are fine. Some people like them, some people don’t. Whatever floats your boat. ITA that it’s time to find a new style other than booty heels and short dresses. There’s got to be a happy and more original medium between that and long dresses.

Sorry, that’s a strangely flippant way to describe your father’s death. She is such a superficial person.

Nice to see she’s growing back her long hair. It’s one of her best features. So is her husband!!

I think her face looks different now because I saw on this site AwfulPlasticSurgery that she’s had a nose job, botox, peels, etc. Makes her look less youthful, tight skinned and sort of “thin-lipped miserable.”

I use to absolutely ADORE her but she upsets me more and more with her attitude and perceived pretension. The hair is creeping back to its straight-part Seventies *blah* and the same hackneyed style. She can’t escape her comfort zone.

Her career was going well once upon a time: She was excellent in Emma, Shakespeare in Love, Possession but the recent stuff? Iron Man?! Oof.

I also take offense to her “I’m like any other typical mom juggling work” blah, blah, blah. Bullocks Gwynnie, to quote a fave term from your adopted nation. Too bad.
Post script: she works out like a fiend but the calves are looking, dare I say, bulbous?

Also: that black nail polish AGAIN! She’s like a re-current nightmare.

I always thought that she would make a great model. Her comment about her father does sound insensitive. However, I love Coldplay, so I like her!

wow, you are st00pid @ 10/31/2009 at 1:41 pm


Do you really think I do not know how to spell “stupid” ? Obviously I was playing on the words.

Carmen Sandiego @ 10/31/2009 at 1:45 pm

She use to smoke.

@wow, you are st00pid: Forget the name. Your original reply sounds illiterate. You shouldn’t be calling anyone stupid.

She is one of those women who sacrificed her face for her ass so all she does is show off her legs now.

Wait a minute here. Stop bashing GP. She is pushing 40, has had two children, and because of family genes is very pale in coloring. We all have personal tastes in the way we dress. I’m sure even celebs have down times where they dress casually. We wouldn’t want to have a camera on us all the time, do we? I think she is a natural beauty and no matter what is said, she can ACT. Just put yourselves in her shoes for once.

I am extremely jealous that Gwynnie gets to be BFFs with Valentino. I love him and want him to be my bff. I have big dreams.

We’re all allowed to express our opinions here, positive or negative. Imho, Paltrow is not a natural beauty. She’s rather plain and not exactly the best dresser. She had a brief period in the late 90s/early 00s where she was fashionable but now she’s more of a fashion miss than hit. I think her trainer Tracey Anderson is to blame. She’s convinced the woman to concentrate on wearing shorter and shorter outfits to show off her body. My guess is she agrees because she is pushing 40 and the trainer is preying on her insecurities.

Wrt her face, I do think she has had some work done but agree, that her body right now is much more attractive than her face.

Her mother, on the hand, looks amazing.

Leigh @ 10/31/2009 at 5:17 pm
Did anyone even mention her complexion?? Everyone was discussing her dog face and disturbing commentary. Her mother has a lovely face that she didn’t inherit. Case closed.

@Next…you are so right! It’s Tracey Anderson. She wants Gwyneth to wear the uber mini dress she never could because she’s 4’11″. Those frocks would be Goddess length on her, LOL! LOL!

@Leigh. Are you kidding me?? If I put myself in her shoes, for even one minute, I would trip and fall over. Look at them.
Plus, if I had $700 to spend on a pair of shoes I would prefer to give some to charity and the rest would go to feeding my children.
