Gwyneth Paltrow says women in Hollywood are paid less

Gwyneth Paltrow says women in Hollywood are paid less

Like most of the world, I find it hard to feel sorry for the likes of Gwyneth Paltrow. She’s lived a super posh existence and was born with a silver spoon in her mouth. So to hear her complain about money and the differences in Hollywood doesn’t exactly make her argument. Yes, I get that there is a difference in pay between male and female actors and entertainers, but does she have the right to whine?

In a new interview with Variety, she talked about the painful wage gap in Hollywood. She said, “Your salary is a way to quantify what you’re worth. If men are being paid a lot more for doing the same thing, it feels s**tty.”

While she does have a point, when you’re an actress being compared to an actor, the salary gap may also reflect a certain amount of talent – or lack thereof….right?

She also went after her “Iron Man” co-star Robert Downey Jr. She said, “Look, nobody is worth the money that Robert Downey Jr. is worth. But if I told you the disparity, you would probably be surprised.”

Do you feel she’s right? I’m all for feminism and closing the wage gaps that obviously exist, but this might be a better argument coming from someone who could actually carry an entire movie. What do you think?

Gwyneth Paltrow wants us to buy her expensive crap again

Gwyneth Paltrow wants us to buy her expensive crap again

Gwyneth Paltrow has enough cashola to redo her entire wardrobe to the tune of twenty grand for one season, so naturally she thinks it’s okay to try and get the rest of us to spend our hard-earned cash on her expensive clothes. I get it, she’s privileged, was born with a silver spoon in her mouth and blah blah blah, but when will this superficial space cadet realize that we don’t have $350 to throw down on an ugly blouse?

There’s a T-shirt being sold for $350. It’s called the “Paget Tulip Jersey Top” by the brand Mother of Pearl, and it’s a blue and red flowy design with a flower pattern.

And Goop wants you to buy it in bulk. “When you find the right t-shirt, you want 17 of them in your closet. And you want them to last forever and never disintegrate,” the site wrote in a description of the roundup. “Herewith, our favorite t-shirts right now—the ones we’re buying in bulk to see us through the next few seasons—and all available on goop.”

If you’re interested in the offerings that Gwyneth recommends, feel free to prance on over to her website and check out the selections. Come back here and let us know your thoughts on the designs and whether or not you’d shell out $38 for a plain white t-shirt.

Gwyneth Paltrow confirms she’s dating Brad Falchuk

Gwyneth Paltrow confirms she's dating Brad Falchuk

After calling it quits with her ex-husband Chris Martin, Gwyneth Paltrow was rumored to be dating Brad Falchuk. Not being one to talk about her personal life much, they kept their romance under wraps for a while. Now, she is confirming the reports of their relationship.

She posted the above photo of herself and Falchuk on her official Instagram account as they cozied up together. She captioned the picture: “My date and I #screamqueens.”

They were first linked together in August 2014 after she announced that she was consciously uncoupling from Chris Martin. Despite being divorced from Chris, she said that they are on good terms, but co-parenting their two children can be difficult.

She said, “It’s definitely imperfect but it gets easier with time and you know, we’re really good friends. I like him. He’s great. He’s a great dad and so, I feel lucky that we both, along the way, have been able to really put down our own stuff while we’re together with the family and that we make it a priority to be together so that the transition for the children wasn’t, you know, as brutal as it could be.”

Jessica Alba doesn’t like any Gwyneth Paltrow comparisons, thank you very much

Jessica Alba doesn't like any Gwyneth Paltrow comparisons, thank you very much

Jessica Alba and Gwyneth Paltrow are both businesswomen of sorts, but that’s where the comparisons should end – this according to Jessica Alba.

She and Gwyneth are actresses who run their own lifestyle brands, but she feels that it’s unfair and sexist to lop the two of them into the same category.

Jessica revealed, “What I think is unfair is to lump actresses together. People aren’t lumping Justin Timberlake and Ashton Kutcher together. They do other businesses. I think it’s expected that when you get success in one area, you’re supposed to evolve and try to do something else – especially in business, and especially if you’re a man.”

In the September issue of “Allure” magazine, she credits her husband Cash Warren with enabling her to become a successful entrepreneur. She said, “It wouldn’t really be possible without him. He helped me put together my initial business plan. He was always my biggest cheerleader. Having someone who genuinely has your back, no matter what, there’s nothing like that. It’s a real unconditional love. The partner that you choose to go through life with you, that’s your chosen family.”
