Gwyneth Paltrow: I Can Definitely Harbor Revenge

Gwyneth Paltrow: I Can Definitely Harbor Revenge

Gwyneth Paltrow covers British Vogue‘s May 2010 issue in this shoot by celeb photographer Mario Testino.

Here’s what the 37-year-old actress had to share (via Telegraph):

On revenge: “Oh yes, I can be mean. I can cave in to gossip. I can ice people out and I can definitely harbour revenge. In fact, I’m having a situation right now with a friend where I’m feeling pretty angry. But revenge is corrosive and it doesn’t make me feel good. I’ll wake up in the morning and think, ‘Ugh, I feel terrible’, and suddenly realise, ‘Ah, that’s why. I’m holding on to so much hate.”

On exercise and keeping her figure slim: “Oh, I had to work hard to get it like this, but now I’m here it’s so great because I don’t have to think about it. I can just enjoy life. What a relief is that. I can eat what I want, as long as I exercise, which is just as well, because if I put the word’ diet’ into my brain, I immediately gain a stone.”

On branching out and planning a cookbook: “[T]hat’s partly because I have this whole other passion, which is home-making. I always have done, since I was little. As silly as that sounds – it’s not 1955, after all – it’s really important to me, all that stuff, sitting round a table as a family.”

    Very 60′s/70′s cover, I like the look of it

  • Katsaridoula

    she looks sad

  • asdf

    She sounds very bitter.

  • Sweet Pea

    Interesting that they didn’t give her the U.S. cover. I guess her role’s not as high profile this time.

  • Dani

    Nice cover aside from the eyeliner. Makes her look like a raccoon.

  • lilac

    I wonder if the revenge comment has to do with Kate Bosworth. Haven’t seen her with that group in ages.

  • Onyx

    Not loving the cover. It looks dated.


    @sweet pea :

    This is a shooting by Mario Testino, so pretty much high profil thing !

    She looks good on that one. I wonder what the inside pics look like, Testino is a hell of a photographer !

    she for sure looks better than the last Photoshop-Scarlett poster

  • jamie


  • Josie

    She is so incredibly plain looking.
    I’d rather watch paint dry then look at her dull face.
    her eyes are empty, nothing there….wow, she is the very definition of ‘plain’.

  • happy girl

    i must admit she is pretty.

  • jamie

    And Gwyneth looks beautiful on this cover!!! Testino is a legend and Vogue is Vogue is Vogue!!! Not to worry her career hasn’t gone anywhere. She took a break to be mommy for awhile but is on her way back while Kate Bosworth is on her way out and…probably to the hospital after Gwyn gets a hold of her. Just imagining Gwyn, Madonna, Stella, Jesus, and Valentino beating her down at the Chateau Marmont while Alex yells, “Michael,….I mean ahem Kate!!!” hahaha….
    And yes, Kate has NOT been hanging with them b/c she did wrong with Chris Martin so she has been blacklisted and banished!!! Along with Alex and all her pathetic goons!

  • fashionista

    @TAYLOR: Testino is a great photographer but this is not a great cover. UK Vogue is less high profile so yes, this is a step down from last year. Could be due to her having a less substantial part and having to share screen time with ScarJo.

  • oh my

    gwyneth is such a plain jane. they should not give her raccoon eyes.

  • Liz

    She looks beautiful.

  • xcited

    Bad, bad cover.
    She looks like a tranny.

  • Nine Songs

    American Vogue is trying new things. That is why Paltrow did not get the cover. They are not using the same rotation of boring blondes anymore for their covers. As for taking time off for being a mommy, Paltrow has been working quite steadily for the past several years between acting and modeling and the TV show. She always claims she takes time off but she’s worked consistently.

  • Minx

    I hate the eye makeup. Some women can wear black eyeliner. Gwyn is not one of them.
    It really shrinks her eyes.

  • london chica

    Sorry, I don’t like it. She looks so plain and washed out and yeah, she does sound bitter but if it was splashed all over the rags that my hubby was cheating on me with a silly, anorexic tart, I’d be bitter too.

  • Courtney

    Gwyneth should keep her trap shut she’s not as big a star as she used to be and at least she didn’t compare herself to say Joanne Woodward for instance with whom her mother Blythe Danner has been friends for decades all steaming from a film they did together called Mr & Mrs Bridge though ironically enough she [Gwyneth} was about the same age when she accepted her academy award for best actress that Joanne had been when she accepted hers 41 years earlier for the three faces of eve even funnier than that coinsidence is Paul & Joanne’s oldest daughter Nell & Gwen and Chris’s son mosses were both born on April 8th some 48 years apart and Gwyneth & Melissa Paul and Joanne’s middle daughter are exactally 11 years apart in age 9/27/1961 & 9/27/1972 respectively

  • Farmer Ted

    GP has great legs but why put a horse face on the cover of Vogue?

  • Farmer Ted

    Save her for Horse and Hound.

  • YUCK…


  • YUCK…


  • willow

    Terrible cover. That’s a very unflattering shot of her. UK Vogue really needs a revamping.

  • Nic

    Stunning cover, she looks nice, its subtle, i love that its not a flashy grinning like a moron US Vogue cover shot!

    And lol at people going; “she didnt get the us cover”, puhleaseee UK Vogue is much much more respected in the fashion industry, and its a coup only A-list celebs get to front it.

    And her quotes are fanatastic, as always she at least has something intelligent and meaningful to say, unlike many a celeb out there.

  • wexx

    Gwyneth looks very plain on this cover and agree, the thick eyeliner does not suit her. Also agree, she looks sort of sad, perhaps because she has so much anger inside her. Makes me think the rumors of her hubby fooling around with KB may be true. Don’t think Madonna is the friend she’s referring to since they were just spotted together.

    Sorry, no comparison between the UK and US Vogues. US Vogue is much more high profile. UK Vogue has become somewhat of a joke. Italian Vogue is more respected in the industry for trying new things. Lots of new players in Iron Man 2 so she probably did not get the cover b/c her screen time is diminished. Plus, they don’t seem to be using her to promote Iron Man as much as Scarlett. She’s all over the promotional items. Gwyneth not so much.

  • Sam

    She’s so stupid.

  • R&M

    Not the best picture of her, I also don’t care for the black eyeliner. Good for her for owning up to her anger. It’s honest. And, it seems obvious that she’s referring to that d-lister KB. GP’s crowd definitely kicked her to the curb. I’ve got a front row ticket to the fallout!

  • LuckyL

    Stupid c*nt. You are NOT BRITISH. STONE? DUMBA**

  • LuckyL

    God, I miss Blythe!!

  • Ana

    I wonder if Gwyneth is refering to Kate Bosworth and the infidelity with Chris Martin when she talks about holding on to hate and revenge????

  • Tara

    She’s 37??? She looks so young. Good for her!

  • Snobby

    She’s gorgeous but seems to be a little bit snobby and waspy which is not attractive at all. She speaks English like some kind of country club aristrocrat and speaks Spanish with that accent from Spain instead of the mainstream latino Spanish accent.

  • Jason

    Paltrow is a dead ringer for Sissy Spacek and looks nearly the same age. Spacek looks younger than her actual age and Paltrow, in this shot, looks more 40s than 30s.

  • Whynot

    Wow, people are soo judgemental, she looks pretty good here. People are stating that she comes across as bitchy but I would be bitchy to if my supposed friend had a fling with my husband, so she gets a pass. I quess it is hard for her to accept their word when they said nothing happened but there will always be doubt esp since Kate B and Chris M were indeed at that event where that witness stated they kissed. Watch out Kate you messed with the wrong women in Hollywood. I think this was a warning to Kate B that she is not buying the innocent routine.

  • pixie

    I am soo glad that Gwyn did this interview. She basically told
    Kate Bosworth to watch her back. She also in a way let us know that she is not unaware of what possibly had happened btw Kate and her husband and the rumors. So, Kate B defenders what do you have to say now, it’s obvious that she is implying to Kate. Who else would she harbor such feelings of hatred other than the Kate B situation. So everytime Kate B photos show up there will be haters, so deal with them. Who likes a famewhore and fake backstabing homewreker esp when there are kids involved!!!! Poor Alex S, Gwyn basically confirmed that your dating a trasky homewreker. He has the worst taste in women.

  • 7

    She seems like a callous adult. Grow up.

  • Chloe

    Is Kate technically a ‘homewrecker, homewrecker, homewrecker……’ when GP and her husband haven’t split?

    And if GP froze Kate out of her precious inner circle Helena Christensen obviously didn’t get the memo – she’s one of GP’s celeb pals and was seen out having lunch with Kate recently.

  • hotlanta

    @Chloe: Bosworth and Christensen are best friends. Most best friends don’t abandon their pals even if they’ve done something wrong.

    GP looks awful. Not sure why the people of Vogue decided to go with this shot but it’s very unflattering.

  • Kate

    Kate B has had a trashy reputation for years now. She is known in the industry as to ignoring whether or not the man she is lusting after is married or not, and she is still considered a homewreker, or is it MISTRESS, if the marriage is still intack not all marriages end due to an affiar! What if it was just a fling, what does one call a person who has a fling with a married man and his marriage does not end??? Basically, a HOMEWREKER!!! Also, perhaps Helena Christensen decided not to chose sides to remain neutral if Gwyn decided not to tell her how she felt.

  • Keep it Real

    I can’t decide if Gwen is someone who is hilariously snarky or a huge B*tch.

  • http://JUSTJARED ithink

    She is naturally thin–how is she representing diets? If you look at the old pictures of Gwen and Brad Pitt in the natural??? then you will see that she is tall and lanky–not very shapely–Brad looked wayyyyy better than her dressed and undressed :) If it is true about her husband than perhaps it’s bad karma coming back on her for what she did to Brad.

  • vanessa

    she hasnt been in a mag cover in ages

  • longchamp

    rhetoric question: given this bitter plain jane, the vapidly taut sitcom has-been, and the radiant beauty with a heart of gold, hasn’t the man chosen mighty well, though?

  • Whynot

    You mean the short flat chested, no booty, going bald, also plain jane
    Kate Bosworth, whatever!!!! How is it that Gywn is the has been when at least she is working and when she is not it because she choses not to due to her CHILDREN. Kate, what is she doing, at best she is a B LIST ACTRESS whose movie go strait to DVD.

  • Chloe

    I don’t know, I wonder about the alleged ‘affair’. Why is everyone so determined that it happened? There is a site that says they had people at the U2 concert and nothing happened. Even gossips like Ted and Perez seem sceptical for once…Looking through the KB threads there are a lot of things being said about her, trying to take away any good quality she may have. For example she got into Princeton and she wasn’t a legacy admission like someone said, she told US Vogue she was the first person in her family to be accepted to the Ivy League.
    @Kate – how many other men has she allegedly stolen?! She dated Orlando and a British model which isn’t that many and neither were married. I‘m not defending Kate here but if you say something like that you must have some kind of ‘proof ’.@hotlanta – I read Helena was really close to Gwyneth and was one of the first people to see her after her second child was born?

  • Chloe

    @Kate oops I meant – how do you know she has a reputation ‘in the industry’ for chasing after men even if they are married? How do you know that is a fact?

  • really

    what she really saying is that: she is going to SLAP that junkie (kate bosworth) out kates bleach!


  • really

    @jamie: preach!
