You’re not gonna believe this, but Gwyneth Paltrow is Gwyneth Paltrow’s favorite actress.
Paltrow “totally embarrassed herself” last summer by holding a private “Goop Film Festival” event at her ultra-lush Hamptons estate, an insider tells Radar exclusively. “After the massive success of Iron Man 3, Gwyneth started hosting regular screenings of some of her old 90′s hits,” the source explains, “including Seven, Sliding Doors and Shakespeare in Love.” But it wasn’t just a night of entertainment for her invited guests. The weary pal recalls, Paltrow asked her captive audience “what works about the movies.” “Gwyneth is really just trying to re-live her glory days,” the friend says. “The truth is, if you look at her schedule, she’s just not a full-time actor anymore, but she still wants to be treated like a screen legend.” And though her pals were subjected to the Goop-y screenings the source says one person managed to skip the show — her now-estranged husband. “She’s been trotting out the old movies for her friends, but most of them would rather watch paint dry,” the source explains. “It was pretty embarrassing and interestingly Chris never hung around to watch.”
This is probably the most Gwyneth Paltrow-y thing I’ve heard Gwyneth Paltrow do, except earlier this week where she was basically accused of planting the “Chris Martin cheated” rumors to make it look like Chris Martin didn’t pray every night that John Doe would eny his life and send him a box. California, tell your people to stay away. Stay away now, don’t – don’t come in here. Whatever you hear, stay away! John Doe has the upper hand!
