I've loved Gwyneth Paltrow ever since I saw her in "The Royal Tenenbaums" but my feelings for her have wavered from love to like to just downright annoyed over the years. I still appreciate her acting in most films but if I was one of her girlfriends I'd love to shake her tiny bony little body and say, "Get over yourself already!"
Recently Paltrow was featured in Elle Decor. The magazine asked her to name 12 things she couldn't live without. Now, if you're like me, you'd probably say something like, "air", "love" or "food." Maybe. No, those things are simply too common for a woman like Gwyneth Paltrow.
The actress gave many answers but one of them was, "Antonio Lupi Baia tub". Yes, that's definitely a must have if you can only 12 things in life. Why didn't I think of that?
Not only does the star need the bathtub but she also needs it in her bedroom. "It's in the middle of my bedroom-perfect for a relaxing wind-down and for bathing the kids," she told the magazine.
Pretty annoying if you ask me. What else is annoying about Gwyneth Paltrow?
1. Her View On Working Out
I'm the kinda girl that sluggishly goes to the gym. I'm more of a yoga kinda gal and I work out when I have time. Working out is important to me but I understand it's not a priority for some ladies and that's okay. Different strokes for different folks! Gwyneth has a different approach.
According to her, "Every woman can make time-every woman-to exercise. You can do it with your baby in the room. There have been countless times where I've worked out with my kids crawling all over the place. You just make it work."
2. Her Sudden Ability Cook Well and Write Cookbooks
I love buying new cookbooks to find new recipes to try but with the release of Gwyneth's 2011 cookbook Father's Daughter: Delicious, Easy Recipes Celebrating Family & Togetherness Gwyneth provides some of the most annoying lines.
"The stove is really the epicenter of my house - I am never far away from it and most of the time there is something atop it, simmering away for my family." Uhm yeah I bet, while you watch your chef, nanny, or housekeeper slave away to make your family meals.
"We've got a wood-burning pizza oven in the garden-a luxury, I know, but it's one of the best investments I've ever made." -- She eats pizza?
3. Her Pretentiousness
In her recent Elle Magazine interview she was quoted as saying, "When you go to Paris and your concierge sends you to some -- restaurant because they get a kickback, it's like, No. Where should I really be? Where is the great bar with organic wine? Where do I get a bikini wax in Paris? People know that I know that -- "
What is she even talking about? She sounds crazy.
4. She Thinks She's a Singer
Yeah, I get it, she sang some songs in that one movie with Faith Hill's husband. Big deal. That movie was boring.
The star was also quoted in her Elle Magazine interview by saying, "Beyonc© and Jay-they think that I should just go do it by myself. That I should go -- in a studio and see what happens. And if it's good, do it. And if it's not, don't. So that's probably what I'll do."
I don't care what her friends "Beyonce and Jay" have to say, they were probably just trying to be nice and she needs to stay out of the recording studio. That would be one of the most annoying albums to ever be released.
5. She Can't Handle Stress
Even though she's married to Chris Martin (lead singer of Coldplay) and makes millions dollars a year Gwyn has problems handling stress. In one of her GOOP newsletter's she writes, "I have never been very good at handling stress -- if anyone has helpful tips for stress reduction PLEASE post them on our Facebook page."
The economy is tanking and unemployment is at all time high but little sad Gwyn wants to know how to handle stress!
These are just a few of Gwyneth's famous fun quotes. Do you have a favorite Gwyneth moment?
