Pepper Gwyneth Paltrow responded to the vitriol from her haters this week. Guess what their problem is? The New York Daily News reports:
“I think there’s a part of me that because I think I do a lot, I think my work ethic is the reason why I’m successful. I think that a lot of people don’t want to put in effort and it’s easier not to change, not do something good for you, not work on your relationship, not make yourself a meal, not work out.
“[They're just] pissed off at someone else doing that.”
But the fact she thinks she makes everyone else insecure, doesn’t seem to bother the star.
“I’ll just do what I’m doing because, especially now, we live in a world now where everybody is able to express their opinion,” she said.
In the interview, America’s favorite person to hate also denied rumors she was hooking up with “Glee” hunk Matthew Morrison (they’re just friends), was starting a food magazine (“I don’t even have time to blow dry” she said) and said she was still thinking about recording an album.
Her theories didn’t stop the Gwyneth-haters from coming out in the comments of the article, ironically.
“If not for your parents, you would probably be waiting tables at IHOP!” one reader wrote.
“Wow, I think she thinks a little too much of herself. She seems to believe she is doing something special; cooking healthy meals for her family, exercizing [sic], working, and being a mom. What is she reinventing the wheel? Sounds like most moms. Cooking at least two meals a day? Sounds mundane to me! Maybe her conceit is why she is so disliked by some,” another added.
The commenters within the article pretty much covered all the bases: Gwyneth Paltrow isn’t a particularly skilled actress or singer, and she thinks she’s special because she was born into money, connections, and an affinity for watercress. Most of us do envy blonde WASPs who don’t have to work another day in their lives and have all the time in the world to tweet. Point: Paltrow.
