Seems like all those rumors about Gwyneth Paltrow‘s diva behavior on the set of “Iron Man 2″ might turn out to be true. If her tiny spot at the bottom of the characters’ pyramid is any indication, the studio was none too pleased with Ms. GOOP. Even ScarJo‘s bum seems more important. Well, at least Gwyn’s name comes second. [MySpace] Keep reading »
Gwyneth Paltrow isn’t shy about giving advice on homemade beauty recipes, but she really enjoys doling out food advice. Gwyneth has this weird way of bragging about her detoxes, love of raw foods, and macrobiotic diet that is meant to make the rest of us feel shameful about scarfing down a Five Guys cheeseburger. So I was devilishly happy to learn that Gwyneth is indeed human and occasionally indulges her cravings. While in Tennessee filming “Love Don’t Let Me Down,” Gwynnie partook in fine Southern cuisine, including fried chicken, chicken sliders, sweet potato fries, biscuits, and oysters. And of course, she posted all of this on her GOOP website, where she gushes about several restaurants. “At the Loveless Cafe, their food is delicious, a traditional southern heart attack,” she writes. Supposedly, Gwyneth sought comfort from food because her family wasn’t around. [OK! UK] Keep reading »
One intrepid Daily Green blogger ventured to find out by taking a step into the privileged world of Gwyneth Paltrow’s GOOP and road-testing the star’s highly recommended
starvation “cleansing” diet. She even lived to tell the tale, and the results might surprise you.
Writer Jenny Muller readily admits the ridiculousity that GOOP so often encompasses. Her description of reading it is astute, to say the least … Keep reading »
Celebrities really care about your health. No really, they do. This year alone, Fergie tried to get you to take shots of vinegar daily, Suzanne Somers tried to get you to stop taking birth control pills, and Gwyneth Paltrow tried to get you to eat, well, pretty much nothing. But just because they’re famous doesn’t mean you should take their advice. A British group called Sense About Science has published an annual brochure, “Science and Celebrities,” which looks at some of the health claims made by celebs in 2009 and gets experts to weigh in. What’d they find? The deets after the jump.

Have happy memories of your mom picking you up from school when you were little? (Unless you were a latchkey kid like some of us, in which case you are screwed up for life, but anyway.) One thing we do not remember is mom wearing ultra stylish designer clothes to the school grounds. Here, Gwyneth Paltrow looks deceivingly casual whilst collecting little Apple and Moses, but look again! That dressed-down fleece pullover? It’s actually called the Cocoon, it’s by Obakki, and retails for $782 at Scoop Nationwide. Why, we can’t even remember the last time we spent 800 bucks on a sweater. [Popsugar] Keep reading »
What’s this I see? Gwyneth Paltrow
is taking GOOP
in 3-D to a YouTube channel. Check out the video above of her making bibimbop. It’s kind of the most boring cooking show ever, no? So far, there are only two vids on the channel, but I’m sure Gwyns will post many more soon. Maybe she’ll videotape how to do a proper colonic?
Speaking of Gwyneth, we are way amused by Daily Beast writer Rebecca Dana, who studiously followed the way of the GOOP for three weeks and lived to tell the tale. Keep reading »
Gwyneth Paltrow worshipers rejoice! (Are you out there? Hello? Bueller? Bueller?) The first pics of the multi-tasking celebrity’s new clothing line — a collaboration with brand Zoe Tees for British boutique Matches — have finally surfaced. (The wares are available in London, and supposedly online; however, the Matches website is down, probably because of today’s traffic surge.) The resulting pieces seem typically Gwyneth, with muted colors and that sort of non-aesthetic that beautiful, thin people can pull off—you know, girls who look gorgeous in burlap bags. Overall, the collection channels chic comfort, perfect for days spent cleansing away your toxins. For your dinner parties with “William Joel,” add some pizazz with a studded racer-back top.
What do you think? Refined basics? Or over-hyped and GOOP-y? [Grazia]

Another day, another Gwyneth Paltrow GOOP edition chock-full of sage advice. This time she addresses the beauty realm, and here’s a synopsis of the tips: Make a body scrub by mixing Turbinado (that’s sugar that comes from the first pressing of the sugar cane), olive oil and coarsely ground coffee, the latter of which Miss Paltrow does not, repeat, does not ever drink. Soften skin with oatmeal and honey before rubbing it with aloe vera juice to reduce redness, and reduce puffy morning eyes by placing chilled spoons over your lids or use cotton pads soaked in cold milk. Prevent wrinkles by doing daily facial exercises like sticking your tongue out as far as you can while keeping your eyes wide for 30 seconds. Apply a boatload of coconut oil after a bath to goop up your skin, which we can assure you is the story behind her seriously oily legs on “Letterman” recently.
Okay, Goopy, let’s talk. Keep reading »
