Gwyneth Paltrow Trying To Stay Relevant

Three years ago Gwyneth Paltrow took it upon herself to trash the United States and the fact that all of the people who live in the United States are capitalistic and have nothing interesting to talk about at dinner and that is why she prefers the UK. At that point everyone ran out and got a copy of the book "Hating Gwyneth Paltrow For Dummies," and did have something to discuss over dinner every night for about a year. It was lovely. Good times.

Gwyneth of course said she was misquoted. I believe the magazine or the newspaper released a transcript from the interview and I still haven't found the part where she was misquoted.

Anyway, since it is the anniversary this week of our birth as a nation, Gwyneth has once again decided to throw the country under a big damn bus. It seems that the US has now moved to at least third in her favorite countries. I have no problem with that. I really didn't want her here anyway. Here is what she told The Associated Press about Spain and why it is better than the US.

"Spain has become my second home. It is so different from the United States. It seemed to have a history, and the buildings are years and years and years old. Here in the United States an old building is about 17 (years old), and over there it's from 500 B.C., it's incredible. Also, the way people live over there. They seem to enjoy life a little bit more," she continued. "They aren't running around as much as in New York. They enjoy time with the family. They don't always have their BlackBerry on."

Well if the UK is her first home and Spain is her second home, then I'm guessing the US is just a timeshare at Disney World she keeps for two weeks a year. I realize that the United States itself has a more limited history than Spain, but she didn't need to be rude about it. Also, apparently none of us here enjoy our lives. Well you know what Gwyneth, maybe we have a different way of showing how we enjoy our lives. Also, I don't know what person here doesn't wish they could spend as much time with their families as they could. (The ones we like anyway). Does she think Spain has some type of monopoly on loving family?

Meanwhile Gwyneth gave the interview in the US where she is filming a movie and getting paid by US corporations and expects people living in the US to go out and buy tickets to her movie and spend their hard earned money so she can live in every country other than the US and spend time bashing us. F**k that. I am so sick and tired of her thinking she is better than every other person on the planet and thinking she knows more about everything than anyone else. I can't stand her and I am sure she will try and come up with some lame ass apology, but this keeps happening repeatedly.
