Gwyneth Paltrow Turned Down WHAT Roles?!

Gwyneth Paltrow at THANKS FOR SHARING Premiere in LA

I know there’s been a lot of Gwyneth Paltrow news today, but this needs to be REPORTED!

 Gwyneth Paltrow gave an open interview to Howard Stern and talked particularly about two legendary roles that she decided NOT to take…

The SiriusXM host noted Paltrow said no to the dramedy Boogie Nights, and was replaced by Heather Graham in the now-iconic role of drug-addicted porn star Rollergirl.

“It was my dad,” Paltrow said of late director Bruce Paltrow. “I really wanted to do it.” Her famous dad — who was also “devastated” about Paltrow’s split from Pitt — wasn’t the only one who opposed the casting decision.

“My grandfather — I was very close to him and he was pretty conservative,” Paltrow continued. “I just thought, ‘I can’t be totally naked and like, giving a BJ on screen. I’ll kill my grandfather! So, I didn’t do it. And by the way, Heather Graham was perfect, so it worked out perfectly.”

Paltrow also turned down an even bigger role…the female lead in James Cameron‘s 1997 epic Titanic. Of course, the role went to Kate Winslet, who got a nom for a Best Actress.

“My mother [Blythe Danner] will kill me that I’m talking about turning down movie roles,” Paltrow said, attempting to evade Titanic talk. “She says it’s not ladylike.”

Stern, however, was insistent that Paltrow address the scenario. “You only get to pick certain movies,” the America’s Got Talent judge noted. “When you’re offered Titanic — James Cameron — one of the biggest movies of all time, I don’t know psychologically… I would throw a fit that I turned that down!”

YEAH,  WE KNOW.  Turning down both roles would seriously HAUNT MY DREAMS.  I guess, in the words of “Frozen,” let it go?…

Gwyneth Paltrow Breaks Down “Unconscious Coupling.”

2014 amfAR Inspiration Gala***NO DAILY MAIL SALES***

When Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin announced they were breaking up with all the “consciously uncoupling,” song and dance, it was lame and confusing. In fact, I’m still not sure what it means, until now!

As she explained to Howard Stern on his SiriusXM radio show on Wednesday, it actually comes from philosopher Dr. Habib Sadeghi and his wife Dr. Shahrzad and means to split up with “minimal acrimony.” People breaks it down:

“It’s a noble idea, and it’s a great thing to try to do for your kids,” says the actress, 42.

The Mortdecai star and Martin, 37, have two children together, Apple, 10, and Moses, 8, and she said the point to splitting up without anger is to keep everyone happy.

“We’re always going to be a family,” she said.

And when people who are “consciously uncoupling” spend time with their children, that means doing so without tension, Paltrow said.

The actress added that during family time, she tries to find love and forgiveness for Martin – and hopes he does the same.

“We actually have a really strong friendship and we laugh and have fun,” the former Glee guest-star says. “And we’re lucky in that our parenting styles and philosophies overlap a lot.”

So where does chain smoking fit into the master plan, Ms. Paltrow? Oh yeah, you’re a human being, too? Thought so!

Gwyneth Paltrow Talks EXES.

Tiffany & Co. Hosts Its Blue Book Ball

Never a dull or broke moment for Gwyneth Paltrow, especially when you’re talking about her romantic history.

The Mortdecai actress looked back on past romances on Howard Stern‘s SiriusXM radio show on this morning contemplating why her relationships with exes Brad Pitt and Ben Affleck did not work out.

Paltrow, 42, was in her early 20s when she met and got engaged to Pitt. She says:

“I definitely fell in love with him. He was so gorgeous and sweet. I mean, he was Brad Pitt!”

Equally in love with the actor was her late director-father, Bruce Paltrow, who saw Pitt as a son.

“My father was devastated,” she admitted to Stern of their 1997 split. “I was such a kid, I was 22 when we met. It’s taken me until 40 to get my head out of my ass. You can’t make that decision when you’re 22 years old… I wasn’t ready, and he was too good for me.” To sum it up, she said: “I didn’t know what I was doing.”

Paltrow also opened up to Stern about Ben Affleck:

“He was not in a good place in his life to have a girlfriend. I think that when you’re in your twenties, you can get swept up in [good looks],” she noted of being with her hunky exes. “When you’re a kid, you tend to be more shallow and you’re also immature, so you think that being with a good looking person validates yourself in some kind of way. It’s not true.”

Unlike Pitt, Paltrow’s parents knew that Affleck was not the right fit for her.

“I think they appreciated how he’s super intelligent and he’s really talented and funny,” she said of her dad and famous mom Blythe Danner. “They loved him, but they were okay with us not being together.”

Wow, I kinda dug this interview. Whereas Gwyneth usually seems so pretentious and lame, she actually sounds like a human being, who is reflective and has made mistakes.

What celeb do you think would be the best fit for Gwyneth? Leave a comment below!

Gwyneth Paltrow Wants To Know Why Women Are Mean To Each Other

2014 amfAR Inspiration Gala***NO DAILY MAIL SALES***

Gwyneth Paltrow is back on her high horse, but she also kinda has a point.

In the February issue of Harper’s Bazaar U.K., the GOOP founder explains what she means…

“Women really need to examine why they’re so vitriolic to other women,” the mother of two says. “Why they want to twist words, why they want to read about someone else in a negative light and why that feels good to them.”

That’s not to say that Mortdecai star Paltrow, 42, thinks all women are mean girls at heart. “But I also know a huge tribe of women who are loving and supportive of other women, in ways that are completely transformative,” she adds.

“I think we are a generation of women who are different in a lot of respects, and some of us want to be ambitious, and for it not to be a dirty word,” she tells the magazine. “We want to be feminine and soft, we want to be maternal, we want to be sexual, we want to be explorers – and we can be a combination of all of these archetypes.You can be powerful, but you can also be vulnerable,” she says. “[I have] learnt the power of kindness and the importance of non-judgmental ways of looking at others.”

Of course, she’s right.  But it’s just so OBNOXIOUS when Gwyneth says it…
