Why Do We Still Hate Gwyneth Paltrow


Gwyneth Paltrow has the unique distinction of being a rather bankable Hollywood A-lister who is also hated by fans with a vengeance. For a better part of the year, fans, bloggers and media personality come out with a bunch of reasons why they hate the starlet. Let’s find out a few reasons that make people want to punch Gwyneth Paltrow in the face.

She says the most annoying things

Gwyneth Paltrow has been caught with her foot in her mouth more often than Tom Cruise has done something cringe-worthy. A few example of Ms. Paltrow’s annoying-ness would include quips from her claiming that she knows how awesome she is at her job, that she just cannot pretend to live like someone who earns $25K a year or that she would prefer death than feeding her kid Cup-a-Soup. Of course, all of these quotes wouldn’t be all that annoying if the starlet didn’t constantly try to project herself as a relatable person.

She thinks of herself as working mom

Despite announcing very publicly and cockily that she cannot pretend that she lives on less than what she really earns, Gwyneth Paltrow keeps on trying to convince people that she is just like any other working mom in America. She has a weekly lifestyle newsletter than tells fans probably struggling to make ends meet in a difficult economy how to feed their family well. While that isn’t a problem per se, Gwyneth’s assumption that an average working mom anywhere in the world can afford to spend $300 a day on family meals contributes to the WTFness of her “advice”.

She insist on being an expert on everything

While no one contends that Gwyneth Paltrow isn’t a meaty and successful actress, the A-lister’s insistence that she is an expert on housekeeping, lifestyle, food, fashion, child naming, child rearing and taking care of herself earns her premium annoyance points in everyone’s books.
