# 4

incorrect age aside, wow she is skinny!

# 5

What did she do to her hair?

# 6

Bye bye Obama THE MARXIST TWIT, roll on to November

# 7

She does look thinner but in a way that makes her look older.

# 8

I bet u her asss smells real bad.

nitwits Gwyenth turns 40 next week and who cares Obama ain’t gonna see another 4 years he’s a do nothing kiss ass who never should’ve been elected in the first place.

Her hair looks awful.

I don’t live in the USA. I have a honest question. Why do so many celebrities throw parties for President Obama? My question probably sounds stupid it’s just it seems like I’m always reading about how the celebs love him and I’ve seen him on Dave Letterman and with alot of movie stars. Never seen pictures of average people with him. Is he good for hard working Americans or celebs?

Why on earth is there an Obama fundraiser in London?

ugly chick

Gwynnie, the center part is not your friend.

Her hair has definitely thinned as she’s aged. I think if she wore it on the side it would be more flattering to her face shape and probably look fuller.

@Sarah: Sarah: You ask very insightful questions.

@azlea: Too much ironing and straightening her frizzy hair. It’s damaged it.

i don’t want to be cliche and talk about weight but seriously being too think when your older makes you look 10x older…which she does, yikes!

time for some botox gwynnie! all that dieting and crazy exercising and tanning have made you look all leathery! i love your dress though :-)

Celebrities seem to be the only ones who really care about Obama. I guess because they’re the only ones who will not have to live by his policies, the way the rest of us will. You think Gwyneth’s kids are going to have to wait 6 months to get an MRI like you and I will under Obama’s health care plan?

Even people in his own party can’t stand him anymore, including Bill Clinton.

She looks a little sunburned.

@Sarah…good questions my dear. We have a President who thinks he’s a celebrity. Hopefully he will not get elected.

PuertoRicanGurl @ 09/19/2012 at 7:34 pm

She’s voting for a man who allows the illegals into our country and he endorses the nasty gays to marry.

Looselipz @ 09/19/2012 at 7:34 pm

Can’t seem to like this gal…snobby, spolied rich kid, married well, friends with the phoney Madonna, mediocre actress, obsessed with herself etc…
And yes, she’s looking far older than 40, clearly a result of tanning, dieting and too much exercise…

Why do celebrities throw parties for their chosen candidates?
Because they have tons of money and plenty of fans…with hope their popularity works when it comes to the vote…
Obviously in Romneys case, it worked against him…

Don’t be stupid. Most celebs have LONGED supported any Democratic party not just because it’s Obama. He might have slightly more Hollywood coverage because guess what his story is amazingly different from every previous president.

Oh yeah, sure, his policies don’t affect them…again, don’t be stupid! Of course they do, celebs are going to be paying more taxes under his policies. Also, it’s highly unlikely that they will be the ones needing ObamaCare so by all accounts they should vote against him but they don’t. Could it be they’re just supporting him because they want to?

STOP TALKING OUT OF YOUR ASS AND THINK FOR A SECOND BEFORE YOU SPEAK! I am so sick of idiots just repeat what they come across on the internet. This is why your country sucks!

@PuertoRicanGurl: The irony of an ignorant thing like you objecting to the “Illegals”. Go clean a toilet you moron.

I really don’t understand this hatred for her, she is a good actress and doesn’t look a overexposed celebrity

This reminds me of how Courtney Cox started looking when she was dieting herself to death. She sacrificed her face for her ass. Gwyneth seems to be doing the same thing. She’s probably trying to look younger but it has the opposite effect.

Love you, Gwyneth! Always classy……

Love you, Gwyneth! Always classy……

Thank you Gwen. Much love.

I always find it funny when GOP voters complain about the Prez connection to Hollywood, when they still think one of their best candidates was in fact an actor. LOL. BTW good on Goopy. Fundraiser in London – yes the rest of the world is very interested the head of the US is a clever one and not some hick town lumberjack.

She looks a mess.

G.P. needs to see a doctor. She is stick thin and her face looks emaciated.

Jeffrey Sean Keith @ 09/19/2012 at 10:16 pm

Come on pose for PLAYBOY Gwyneth,before your hot looks fade,I would spend the night with her!

just a loser celeb with no career

Go Obama, go Goopy!

Her face looks a lot older here than on that magazine cover she’s on right now. Shows how much they touch up these celebs.

Obama/Biden 2012!!!!!!!!!!!!


You ask why the president does spend time with common people. I have to say, I have not seen any president hanging out with common people. The presidency is not a casual office to behold. Another reason I suspect the president or any other president does it because it can be a serious security issue. Some of you may have heard of Democratic Representative Gabrielle Gifford who was shot during a public rally. Here in the USA you have the freedom to support any candidate that you wish and having fundraisers is one way of support. President Reagan was a Hollywood actor in his early career. This is why I love my countries. THE UNITED STATES of AMERICA…

I don’t think her dress is half bad but boy does she look rough in the close-ups. It’s amazing what top makeup artists and hair stylists can do. Plus, photo shop really helps with the magazines.

dot spotter @ 09/20/2012 at 2:15 am

fried hair + leathery skin = not a good look

Is Obama a celebrity or President of US?
Is he for ordinary people or for Hollywood?
or for Goldman Sach

Gorgeous! @ 09/20/2012 at 4:46 am

Does she really look so bad? I can’t see that…she looks a little bit old, but bad?

But about the Obama thing: Do you guys really want Romney? That would be a step back into the dark age.

pretty.nice. @ 09/20/2012 at 5:47 am

she looks really pretty, has a great tan, and looks good in that white dress.


People you are stupidly cruel to this actress and it’s pathetic. She’s a bloody accomplished actress, has won an Oscar and has been happily married for years with 2 beautiful children. Even Robert Downey Junior said she’s an angel to work with on the Iron Man set. Give it up guys it’s exhausting.

Nice to see all the celebrities supporting an amoral child killer. What a world we live in.

biker mike @ 09/20/2012 at 9:43 am

how could she betray all the people in the USA not working,,over 23 million of them,, and the 47 million on food stamps, and the 16 trillion debt,, another 382000 Lost jobs last week and 382000 the week before , I will never watch any of her work ,ever,,

@ Melanie. Agree with you. Hatred for this woman has reached mass hysteria level. Crazy. Haters can’t think staight anymore. Mark. Ruffalo just recently had nothing but nice things to say about her.

Sigh… Sheeplebrities..

In my opinion, Gwyneth does not look that bad. There are many actresses that are as slim as she, which appears to be the norm in LA. She does not appear to botox when many of the stars begin botoxing (if that’s a word) in their twenties. I’m sure people have their reasons for not liking her, but I always thought she was a nice young lady. No scandals, never heard of her publicly speaking negative about anyone.

@Melanie: Co-stars don’t usually bash each other, especially when they’re promoting a movie. They usually have nothing but nice things to say about each other. Apparently the crew of Iron Man wasn’t fond of her because that did make its way into the news.

She’s hardly ever seen with her husband which may be a good thing since a “marriage” can last a long time if two people who don’t get along keep a distance. Iit looks like she’s taken the diet/cleanse thing to the extreme. She’s starting to look brittle.

G.P. should not wear white. It completely washes her out and her hair looks like she didn’t bother to wash it before she got dressed up for the event. I think she should go back to the shorter bob she had when she was promoting the first IM film. The longer it is now, the thinner it looks.


r u educated?
do your homework about the issues BEFORE you type racist and hateful comments.


Too much dieting. She is starting to look old.

$40.000 per head, that must have some event. who says that money dos’nt talk?

@H.: lol. I gotta agree with you on that one. She really does look horsey in that pic.

Just saw my last Paltrow movie.

@Getty: Afraid not Getty. They asked Robert about Scarlett as Black Widow and all he said was it was tome Gwyn got into some leather. If she was hard to work with Getty, they would never have given her that small part in the Avengers. She’s also had a career that’s spanned longer than most actresses can try to have. Being a b*tch would certainly not have got her far.

Comic-Con @ 09/21/2012 at 6:26 am

@Melanie: Well, that’s just not true. Actors that are difficult to work with still get parts if someone like the director or lead likes them or thinks they’re talented enough to go to bat for. In GP’s case, RDJ liked her and went to bat for her to land the part. I don’t recall him being anything less than complimentary about Scarlett so I’m not sure why you think he didn’t like her.

And yes, rumors of the crew not liking Gwyneth circulated during the filming of Iron Man 2:

Gwyneth Paltrow is not making any new friends these days.

The actress recently wrapped filming on “Iron Man 2″ (due to hit theatres in May 2010), where she wasn’t a crew favorite, FOX411 has learned.

A source says some of the “Iron Man” team had secret hopes of her character being recast, or even killed in the movie, but are resigned to the likelihood that she is locked in as the character Pepper Potts.
Gwyneth did nothing to make friends with fellow superhero Scarlett Johansson, playing the Black Widow, says the insider, and crew actually preferred to be around her husband, Coldplay frontman, Chris Martin.

“Gwyneth is extremely cool at work. She’s just a step above professional, too snobby,” the on-set source tells FOX411. “Gwyneth is not friendly to anyone, and tends to make people feel awkward and uncomfortable. She wasn’t outright rude to Scarlett, she just didn’t ever speak to her. Gwyneth went out of her way to avoid Scarlett, and they had zero contact, at Gwyneth’s choosing.”

The source says that she also put undue pressure on the hair and makeup staff and other members of the crew. “Gwyneth would be very put out if hair and makeup were running behind or things were not on schedule. Usually, nothing was drastically late, but Gwyneth can instantly say something that lets everyone know she is put out,” the source explains. “Much of the crew didn’t mind hanging out with her husband, Chris, but if Gwyneth ever came around, they scattered! Chris is so chill and relaxed and she is just the opposite. Chris has been a crew favorite since the filming of the first movie.”

And while the insider says there are definitely people on the movie who would love to see her replaced, Pepper Potts is a very important character to Robert Downey Jr.’s Tony Stark. “She is not going anywhere,” sighs the source. “As long as Gwyneth wants to be in the movies, she will be, and the crew has to learn how to handle her.”

I don’t blame anybody for not getting along with ScarJo – she is supremely talentless and annoying. source FOX411, pleeaazze LMAO

This woman looks really sick particularly in the face.

And the whole difficult-to-work with thing, I imagine she’s someone who shows up on time and knows her lines but some of the people she’s worked with don’t seem to have liked her. I remember a similar article when Two Lovers came out about her being frosty to the crew. It’s not surprising given how she’s conducted herself in interviews over the years. That personality comes from somewhere.
