Gwyneth Paltrow: love or hate her?
If Gwyneth Paltrow earned a dollar for every time she was in the news recently…well, I’m pretty sure she’d double her income.
Let’s take a look at why the blonde actress has been gracing our headlines so much lately:
There was the interview a while back where she, perhaps inadvertently, said that brunettes were invisible (the actual quote: "I don't understand the whole idea of blondes having more fun. I'd say brunettes have more fun as they can go under the radar a little bit more. People are just waiting for blondes to get drunk and fall down, because we're so visible."), then she ‘humbly’ bragged about how her friend told her that she has the butt of a 22-year-old-stripper, and let’s not forget the whole accusations of sexualising children by featuring girls aged four to eight in bikinis on her website, Goop.
That’s all quite a bit to ruffle a few feathers. But it’s not all that’s got people talking. Gwyneth recently released a new cookbook, It’s All Good, which, while it has some great recipes, features ingredients many would class as unaffordable for a regular meal (reports suggest it could cost nearly $300 a day to feed a family based on Gwyneth’s recipes).
And then just a few days ago at the Iron Man 3 premiere, Gwyneth stepped out in a very revealing dress. With sheer panels on either side, it became clear that Gwynnie rocked up sans undies, and thus coined the term ‘side butt’. Some say brave, others say a little bit too risqué.
It seems like the blonde actress has been copping a bit of flack lately. But don’t feel sorry for her just yet, because Gwyneth has recently been crowed the world’s most beautiful woman by People magazine.
So what’s the deal? Do we love Gwyneth or hate her? I honestly can’t keep track. One minute we’re vilifying her for a myriad of reasons and then the next, she’s being awarded for being beautiful, inspirational and just all-around wonderful. What do you think? Has she deserved all this grief she’s been getting from the media? Or do you think we should all give the woman a break? After all, she’s human with feelings like the rest of us.
