“Start in a hot, dry room and then move into an even warmer steam room. Then splash yourself with cold water (or even dunk in cold pool or under a cold shower). Follow it with a full body scrubdown, which is typically followed by a massage. At the end you’ll be sent to a cool room to relax and cool down.”
Still nursing a New Year’s hangover? This is how Gwyneth Paltrow suggests you get rid of it. I think I’ve turned a corner in my Gwyneth loathing where I’m actually amused by her unapologetic ignorance to the fact that not everyone lives like she does. You know, with instant access to a sauna, steam room, cold pool, body scrub-ologist (I just made that up but I bet Gwyneth has one in a closet somewhere), and masseuse after a particularly rough night guzzling Dom Perignon.

I know I am gonna get rotten tomatoes thrown at me for saying this, but I actually wanted braces when I was younger. Although I am technically gap-toothed, I wasn’t gap-toothed enough to justify a wire grill. My parents told me I was lucky, but I was so jealous of my peers’ mouths full of rubber bands so stylishly color-coordinated for every holiday. Gwyneth Paltrow, no doubt, was one of those high schoolers with an enviable metal mouth. She doesn’t seem the least bit self-conscious about her braces in this picture. She’s working them. [This photo is officially the 8th thing I like about GP. Previously, there were only 7. -- Editor] Click through to see some celebrities with brace faces. Warning: you may have a sudden urge to go to the orthodontist — or maybe you’d rather embrace that snaggle tooth. [Huffington Post]
Hot indie actor Mark Ruffalo took a break from being the hottest dude at Occupy Wall Street in order to film “Thanks For Sharing” with Gwyneth Paltrow. Thank god the paparazzi exist to remind us that everyone, including Mark Ruffalo and perfectly perfect Gwyneth Paltrow, looks just ridiculous making out. [Dlisted]
First there was William Joel. Now we have Leonard Kravitz. What’s next? James Fallon? Kenneth G? This chick is too much. [Dlisted] Keep reading »
Saving the best for last? Please! Let’s start our Monday morning off on the right foot, shall we, by checking out the best photos from last night’s Emmy Awards red carpet. And by “best,” I actually mean “worst” dressed, of course, because it’s the most fun.
“I am a great romantic — but I also think you can be a romantic and a realist. Life is complicated and long and I know people that I respect and admire and look up to who have had extra-marital affairs. It’s like we’re flawed — we’re human beings and sometimes you make choices that other people are going to judge. That’s their problem but I really think that the more I live my life the more I learn not to judge people for what they do. I think we’re all trying our best but life is complicated.”
– Gwyneth Paltrow shares her feelings on infidelity — and not judging those who stray — with The Daily Telegraph. I cannot help but wonder if Gwynnie is playing the “my friend” game here and the people she “respects and admires and looks up to” are actually herself and hubby Chris Martin. Not to start rumors or anything. I actually mostly agree with the sentiments she expresses above, although I don’t think it’s necessarily judgmental to say that infidelity sucks and cheating is a crappy thing to do.

“[Chris is] a musical genius. It’s like living with Picasso and being like, ‘Should I make a little something-something?’ … Sometimes it’s hard being with someone for a long time. We go through periods that aren’t all rosy. I always say, life is long and you never know what’s going to happen. If, God forbid, we were ever not to be together, I respect him so much as the father of my children. Like, I made such a good choice. He’s such a good dad. You can never be relaxed or smug and think, ‘I’ve got this thing.’ That’s also part of it: keeping yourself on your toes. I’m not going to take this for granted.”
—Gwyneth Paltrow dishes to Elle about starting a fledgling music career, about running her website/newsletter GOOP, and of course about her rock star husband, Chris Martin of Coldplay. Make it reason number 11 we like Gwyneth. She seems to have a really down-to-earth perspective on love and marriage. [PopSugar] Keep reading »
Oh Gwyneth Paltrow, you silly fishmongering crack-smoking goop. You so crazy! In case you haven’t heard Gwynnie’s latest advice on how to live a fabulous, toxin-free existence, Her Paltrowness recently announced that she’d rather smoke crack than eat cheese from a can. Well, duh. Who wouldn’t?
Personally, I love that Gwyneth said she prefers crack to Cheez Whiz. Everybody’s pointing to this latest comment as further proof of Paltrow’s warped sense of reality, one where even mere commoners such as ourselves have access to kiddie couturiers and private macrobiotic chefs, but I disagree!

Gwyneth Paltrow looks mighty fine posing in nothing but fishnets and Louis Vuitton jewelry in the new issue of Vanity Fair. She could teach the “America’s Next Top Model” cadre a thing or two about looking innocent and thoroughly sexy at the same time. Smize away, girl. [VF] Keep reading »
