Oh shit, cougar on the prowl! Gwyneth Paltrow is now “consciously uncoupled” from Chris Martin, which means she’s looking for a new man and has apparently set her sights on Kate Mara‘s longtime boyfriend, 28-year-old Max Minghella.
From Radar Online:
After her split from husband Chris Martin, the Goop goddess, 41, has reconnected with an old friend, The Social Network star Max Minghella, 28, a source revealed.
But Minghella, who has dated House of Cards beauty Kate Mara, 31, on and off for four years, is still firmly on Mara’s arms.
Now-unattached mom-of-two Paltrow, however, “jokes that she wants to adopt Max,” the source added.
Minghella, who, like Martin, is British, is the son of Paltrow’s late friend Anthony Minghella, who directed her in The Talented Mr. Ripley.
Lately, Paltrow “has allowed Max to use her ritzy Los Angeles house when she’s not staying there, as he usually lives modestly in Hollywood.”
Well, that sounds… weird. Does Max not have a house in LA? Would he not stay with Kate Mara? It’s all bizarre, but I doubt this will turn into anything. Gwyneth needs to chillax a bit, though. Call that dude you were kissing at that baseball game, girl!
This is Max, by the way:

I’m not sure who’s more clueless about the real world: Kim Kardashian with her “Oops, I didn’t realize racism was a thing!” bullshit or Gwyneth Paltrow and her “Acting is so much harder than a 9 – 5 day job!” fuckery. Both of them are idiotic, to be sure, but the most offensive thing about their bullshit is the fact that they actually think they’re changing the world by spouting off nonsense.
Yes, Gwyneth actually implied (on several occasions, at that) that being an actress is super duper hard, and that in some other walk of life, she kinda wishes she worked a regular day job because it’s SO much easier than getting paid millions to shoot some scenes once a year. Since people basically called her out for being stupid, she decided to do the only thing there is TO do: Write a blog post on the Goop website about how she’s “ending the Mommy Wars” by… not actually doing anything.
A few weeks ago during an interview, I was asked why I have only worked on one film a year since having children. My answer was this: Film work takes one away from home and requires 12-14 hours a day, making it difficult to be the one to make the kids their lunch, drive them to school, and put them to bed. So I have found it easier on my family life to make a film the exception, and my 9-5 job the rule. This somehow was taken to mean I had said a 9-5 job is easier, and a lot of heat was thrown my way, especially by other working mothers who somehow used my out-of-context quote as an opportunity to express feelings (perhaps projected) on the subject. As the mommy wars rage on, I am constantly perplexed and amazed by how little slack we cut each other as women. We see disapproval in the eyes of other mothers when we say how long we breastfed (Too long? Not long enough?), or whether we have decided to go back to work versus stay home. Is it not hard enough to attempt to raise children thoughtfully, while contributing something, or bringing home some (or more) of the bacon? Why do we feel so entitled to opine, often so negatively, on the choices of other women? Perhaps because there is so much pressure to do it all, and do it all well all at the same time (impossible). Below is a somewhat radical piece by Brigid Schulte, which has provoked many a discussion here in our HQ, and even a tear or two.
Yeah, I get that the press can twist your words and make a big deal out of nothing. However, I also get that Gwyneth Paltrow is a privileged and entitled woman with no concept of how the real world actually exists, so sorry, homegirl, I’m not buying what you’re selling.
While everyone who’s anyone was busy skipping about in haute couture at the Met Ball on Monday, Gwyneth Paltrow kept herself to herself in California, getting vitamin IV drips at a beachside clinic which seems kinda like a cult, but whatever.
From Radar Online:
The 41-year-old blonde beauty was spotted in a beachside office getting a vitamin IV drip, the virtues of which she has extolled since her “conscious uncoupling” announcement.
Paltrow is the head cheerleader for Dr. Habib Sadeghi, whom she says gives her “an intravenous therapy full of vitamins, which is incredible” at his “Be Hive of Healing.”
An eyewitness told Radar that they spotted Chris Martin’s soon-to-be-ex on Monday in sunny SoCal getting an IV treatment in mid-afternoon while her friends like Reese Witherspoon and Stella McCartney were walking the red carpet at Vogue’s annual MET Gala Ball.
“She had the IV in her arm,” the spy revealed to Radar.
“The lymphatic massage treatment helps with jet lag, too: they wrap you in a blanket and you sweat out impurities,” Paltrow previously said of the treatment.
I don’t think Gwyneth Paltrow really understands how the human body works, but I suppose large amounts of money really can shield you from the realities of biology.
In any case, there’s no love lost between ol’ Goopy and the Met Ball – don’t forget she was there last year and thought it really sucked and vowed never to go back. It’s just a shame those vitamin IV drips can’t instill her with a bit of common sense.
