One actor told me once, you know most of the people in Hollywood aren’t very nice people. I believe it.
Which reminds me of Gwyneth Paltrow and her latest complaint about a Time magazine reporter for his allegedly sexist question.
She attacked the unsuspecting reporter when he innocently compared her to other actresses who run businesses. With no small amount of hyperbole, she called the “notion” misogynistic. Misogyny means dislike of, contempt for, or ingrained prejudice against women.
These PC people need to give others a script so they know exactly what to say at all times.
This was her response to the comparison:
“This is a very interesting question, because I wonder if George Clooney would be asked about Puff Daddy’s ancillary liquor line,” she said sarcastically, noting that both men front an alcohol label. “I’m fascinated how the media in particular are so confounded by entrepreneurial women doing something outside of their box.”
She is very sensitive but doesn’t seem to have a problem putting down a reporter over nothing.
Cluelessly, she said this last year:
At a 2014 tech conference, Gwyneth said reading nasty things about herself on the web is akin to warfare. “You come across [online comments] about yourself and about your friends, and it’s a very dehumanizing thing,” Paltrow said. “It’s almost like how, in war, you go through this bloody, dehumanizing thing … My hope is, as we get out of it, we’ll reach the next level of conscience.”
She runs the Goop Lifestyle website – figures. The reporter dared compare her to Blake Lively’s Preserve, Reese Witherspoon’s Draper James and Jessica Alba’s Honest Co.
Oh, my, perish the thought.
With extraordinary pretentiousness and superciliousness, she said her website is so much “more different.”
She’s offended by the generalization which in her small world means something.
“People are grasping at straws to tie us together and I get it, because it makes a good story, but I’m slightly offended by this sort of generalization that happens with myself and Jessica and Reese and Blake. Yes, there are similarities. But there aren’t stories in Time written saying, ‘Wow, look at Arnold Schwarzenegger, who did x, y, and z!'” she said.
“I feel there’s something slightly misogynistic about it,” she said of the comparisons.
She’s wrong, it doesn’t make for a good story. It’s boring.
She’s like a current day Marie Antoinette who can’t see the peasants who live outside her queenly realm.
It wouldn’t be as offensive if she wasn’t one of the elite who uses her money to influence politics where she has no business. She donated a good amount of money to the absolutely ineffective and former congressman in my district – Tim Bishop. She doesn’t even live in Suffolk but felt the need to influence how we have to live under a left-winger. She epitomizes the arrogance of the elite.
Remember when she suggested the smart people are in Europe.
“We have great dinner parties at which everyone sits around talking about politics, history, art and literature—all this peppered with really funny jokes. But back in America, I was at a party and a girl looked at me and said, ‘Oh, my God! Are those Juicy jeans that you’re wearing?’ and I thought, I can’t stay here. I have to get back to Europe.”
She must be hallucinating again like she did when she was in Sedona with all the other hippies.
“I’ll never forget it. I was starting to hike up the red rocks, and honestly, it was as if I heard the rock say, ‘You have the answers. You are your teacher.’ I thought I was having an auditory hallucination.”
What can you expect from someone who hears rocks talking to her.
