Gwyneth Paltrow has made yet another cringe-worthy statement. This time she’s talking about how women were jealous of her and didn’t want to befriend her, but now that she’s 40, that’s no longer the case.
The actress, who is known for proclaiming her own self-importance, made the comment in a eye-rolling interview with Self magazine.
She talks about how women were once afraid to be her friend because they felt “threatened” by her, but now that she’s not as threatening as she was when she was younger … she can call women like Cameron Diaz and Beyonce friends.
“I feel a sisterhood emerging around me. I’m less threatening now that I’m 40 and not 26-with-an-Oscar.
They know I’ve been through a lot of pain and suffering – some public, some private – and I keep going. Or maybe it’s just that I was the first one who could afford therapy!”
Yes, Gwyneth’s life was VERY rough, and was FILLED with “pain” and “suffering.”
She was born into a Hollywood family (her mother is actress Blythe Daniels — the mom from “Meet the Parents”). She grew up rich, and is now even richer. She won an Oscar at 26 years old, and truly believed that other successfull women hated her — or were somehow jealous of her — for it. She had to play a fat lady named Rosemary who breaks chairs in the movie Shallow Hal.
Poor Gwenny has been through sooooooo much. Excuse me while I roll my eyes.
Her most recent quote can be added to the list of horrendous statements that Miss Perfect has uttered.
Like this one here from the 2004 issue of Vanity Fair:
“I’m really fucking good at my job, and people who are interesting and good know that, and that’s all that matters.”
Or this one, which made BuzzFeed‘s list of “7 Reasons Why People Hate Gwyneth Paltrow”:
“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.”
