Gwyneth Paltrow would never let an opportunity to brag about her life go by, so we shouldn’t be surprised that she’s continued her stream of annoying food talk, name-dropping and endless amounts of other bullshit by trying to humble brag about the fact that she doesn’t wear full make-up 24/7 and actually chills out in casual clothes (which no doubt cost thousands of dollars) when at home with her family. Why, I never!
From People (who felt the need to name her it’s Most Beautiful Person, a title so ridiculous I can’t even speak on it):
“Around the house, I’m in jeans and a T-shirt. I don’t really wear makeup. That’s what they’re used to,” she says. As for her husband, Chris Martin, “He’ll make a joke about it. If I’ve gotten fully dressed up, he’ll be like, ‘Oh, wow! You’re Gwyneth Paltrow!’ Because he’s used to seeing me in like baggy shorts and frizzy hair.”
“It makes me look younger and feel strong,” says the actress, who does the Tracy Anderson Method five days a week. “When I first started, I thought, ‘I’ll never be good at this. This is a nightmare!’ But now it’s like brushing my teeth, I just do it.”
Why does this woman expect a special prize for being a normal f-cking human being? It drives me absolutely bonkers. Also, her daughter Apple is apparently starting to become interested in make-up and Gwyneth lets her wear it, despite the fact that she’s only 8. But it’s all part of positive body image, don’t you know?
“When we’re home sometimes, she’ll put on mascara. And sometimes I’ll let her wear something out to dinner – but just a little dab,” she says.
“Also having a father who adores you the way that he adores her is very good for your body image. The more we can love her and let her be who she is, the more confident she’ll feel.”
Well letting her be who she is might include eating carbohydrates and not having an insane person as a mother, but you know, shit happens.
