No Shit, Sherlock of the Day: Gwyneth Paltrow Thinks Marriage Can Be “Hard” Sometimes

gwyneth paltrow

Actress, purveyor of body shame and rich white woman Gwyneth Paltrow faces adversity in her day to day life on levels we couldn’t possibly fathom. She has too many pairs of black Armani slacks to wear and struggles to decide between straight cut  or skinny, her local Whole Foods was out of organic sugar-free New Zealand beeswax essence the last time she sent her personal chef for groceries and one of her kids ate a single M&M proffered from a private school classmate last week and she’s afraid Apple will develop Diabetes before her 10th birthday. It’s a difficult world out there, and that’s not even including relationships. Her marriage to Chris Martin? It can totally be hard sometimes, guys. :(

From Glamour UK (via DigitalSpy):

“It’s hard being married. You go through great times, you go through terrible times. We’re the same as any couple,” she said.

“I asked my dad once, ‘How did you and Mom stay married for 33 years?’ And he said, ‘Well, we never wanted to get divorced at the same time’. And I think that’s what happens.

“When two people throw in the towel at the same time, then you break up, but if one person’s saying, ‘Come on, we can do this’, you carry on.

“We laugh, we’re good friends, we like to do the same stuff. I’m a very grounded, homey person and Chris is a very mad scientist, genius songwriter.

“So I never say, ‘Where are you? You should be home by now’. I never place demands on him because I think he’s a really talented man and he’s putting something good into the world.”

HAHHAHAHAHAA, Gwyneth describes herself as “very grounded”!!!!!!! Uh, maybe on a planet without gravity. Also, what you’re describing is every single long-term relationship with a shot in hell of working. You’re not accomplishing anything special besides being a decent partner. Anyway, just wanted everyone to see the greatest joke ever told to brighten your Fridays.
Below, some photos from the Tiffany & Co. gala, where Gwyneth continued her fashion reign by wearing a satin bedsheet, apparently.

  • Married to this empty headed phony I’m sure Chris IS putting something into good into the world, if you define “something good” as penis and “world” as lots of other women.

    • Chris Martin is NOT a pothead! He’s a genius and an amazing songwriter, so shut the fuck up if you don’t have anything nice to say!!!!!

  • I don’t get the need some people have (not just celebrities) to preach to other people. This woman seems to always try to come up wth some pearl of wisdom, like “when two people throw in the towel yadda yadda…”

    Beach, please. You’re not Confucius.

  • Yeah, yeah. Since being voted “most hated”, she’s been on a one-woman offensive to improve her image and be seen as “one of the people”, what with the razor references, “Look at me, even though I’m the world’s most hated/most beautiful, I have unruly pubic hair too! I’m just like you…others”!
    This is just the latest effort, what’s next, she starts telling us about her verruca?

  • she’s got a point about being married to a musician. if that’s true & she gives him that essential space, then i think she’s a pretty awesome wife! holy crap, i have something nice to say about gwyneth, whoda thunk…
