Feast your eyes on the “most hated” runner up, Kristen Stewart.
Weeks after People put her on the cover of its annual “World’s Most Beautiful” issue, Star magazine named a certain celeb the “Most Hated Celebrity,” beating out other obnoxious gems like Kristen Stewart (No. 2), John Mayer (No. 4), Madonna (No. 7), Justin Bieber (No. 8), and other stars. The celeb who won this distinguished title is NOT happy, btw, and finds the label pretty humiliating.
So who got crowned “most hated?” Find out, after the jump!
Come on, you KIND OF knew Gwyneth Paltrow might receive this honor, right?
Of course. Speaking to Stephen Sackur, host of BBC News’ Hard Talk, at Cannes Lion, Paltrow said she was confused by the title. “First of all, I was like, ‘I’m the most hated celebrity? More than, like, Chris Brown?'” she asked. “What did I do?” (She has a point).
“I see where you are coming from, but maybe you just make people feel bad sometimes,” Stephen suggested. Gwyneth agreed that it’s possible she puts people off, but it’s never been her “intention” to make anyone feel that way. “All I can do is be my authentic self, and if you know me, then you know who I am, and that I have fun and eat and am so appreciative for my life,” she explained. “But I think there are things about me that make people draw conclusions.”
Gwyneth acknowledged that there is a perception that she grew up “very wealthy” and raised “with a silver spoon” in her mouth—or, as Stephen put it, “a sort of Hollywood princess idea.”
“That inspires a lot of resentment,” Gwyneth said.
Don’t worry, Gwen. You can cry into you beautiful kids, success, and money. You’re gonna be A-OKAY.
