Jessica Alba wants you to know she’s more likeable than Gwyneth Paltrow

Who do you like more, Gwyneth Paltrow or Jessica Alba? They’ve both recently released lifestyle books giving tips for living healthier lives, and recipes, etc. The two actresses are obviously in competition with each other – but which woman do you prefer?

Well, Jessica Alba would like you to know that she’s much more down to earth than Gwyneth. Here she throws shade at Gwyneth, because of all that money she grew up with:

Alicia Silverstone is a vegan, so she’s the extreme side of it. Gwyneth Paltrow probably lives a very similar lifestyle, but I didn’t grow up with a bunch of money, so my tips are much more grounded: Repurposing things and making things at home.”

Jessica really hopes her book ‘The Honest Life’ can help other people, and that it contains lots of tips that people can use quickly.

“I absolutely do these things. That’s why I wrote the book. There’s lots of options, like delivery services for fresh produce that is organic, if people just want to do a couple of things in the book that are supereasy.”

Here are some new pictures of Jessica at the launch of her new book! Take a look here – will you check out her new book?

Gwyneth Paltrow talks diet AGAIN in SELF Magazine

Whenever I read articles about Gwyneth Paltrow anymore, the only thing people can seem to talk about is what she’s eating or not eating, and what she’s feeding or not feeding her children. Honestly, who the hell cares what she eats and what she chooses to feed her kids. In the new issue of SELF Magazine, she talks again – at length about her diet, and believe it or not she actually follows her HIGHLY restrictive diet about three weeks a year, and that’s it. She claims her – “no dairy, sugar, gluten” diet was prescribed to her by a doctor.

Read on for more:

Why Gwyneth changed her diet: “A couple of years ago, I got really run down. I had to sing at awards shows, which was fun but stressful. I’d have a Guinness and a beta-blocker every time. I also was constantly getting on airplanes, trying to knock myself out with sleeping pills and wine, waking up, trying to sweat it out with exercise and a steam, and then working really hard all day. Eventually, I had a panic attack. My body was like, ‘What is happening?’ My doctor, Alejandro Junger, recommended that I cut out basically everything: dairy, sugar, gluten, anything processed. I was like, “What the f— am I going to eat now?” That’s why I made the book: to stop eating brown rice out of the fridge because I didn’t know what else to eat–it was demoralizing.”

When she adheres to the diet: “I probably eat this way two or three times a year for three weeks at a time. Past that, I’m not willing to make the sacrifice. Life is about balance. It’s good to work in healthy food, whether it’s five days a week or five meals a week. And if you’re going to do it, it should be awesome food you’re psyched to make. But never cut out the brownies or the wine.”

How she feels on the diet: “You feel lighter and your emotions get smoother. I also was run-down because I had a lot of unexpressed anger. I made everyone else’s feelings more important than my own. I’d suck it up and then be alone in my car yelling at traffic or fighting with hangers in my closet when they got stuck together. You’re not learning anything unless you’re having the difficult conversations. Dealing with things directly changed my relationships. Sometimes when you get clear about who you are, others get less comfortable because they liked who you were. It’s changed my marriage [to Chris Martin, 36], too, but he’s up for the challenge.”

Her biggest stress: “When I’m supposed to be in two places at once. I try to avoid finding myself in that scenario.”

Blowing off steam: “I watch Homeland or New Girl. I also like to have martinis with my girlfriends. I feel a sisterhood emerging around me. I’m less threatening now that I’m 40 and not 26-with-an-Oscar. There’s a sense of love and support. I feel really lucky.”

She calls girlfriends for advice: “Always. “I have a guy coming for dinner. What should I make?” or “My mother really upset me. How should I approach it?” They know I’ve been through a lot of pain and suffering—some public, some private—and I keep going. Or maybe it’s just that I was the first one who could afford therapy!

Turning 40: “[My 30s] were happy. I came into my womanhood, had my kids. My 20s were a lot of work, and I had no big-picture sense of who I was, where I was going or the point of it all.”

The point of it all: “Finding your truth. Be honest about what you feel and don’t be afraid to articulate it. “To thine own self be true.” It’s not a platitude. It’s the key to life.

I actually really like Gwyneth, but I do get awfully tired of listening to her endless holier than thou complex. She doesn’t come across very well in interviews, and maybe this is just what she’s really like. Can you imagine being friends with someone like her? Aye aye aye!

Gwyneth Paltrow opens up about the miscarriage that almost killed her.

Gwyneth Paltrow revealed in a recent interview that she has actually been pregnant three times, the third resulting in a nearly-fatal miscarriage.

The actress is married to Coldplay frontman Chris Martin, and mom to Apple, 8, and Moses, 6. Even though the ‘Iron Man 3′ actress is busy with the children she has, she admits her previous miscarriage affects her decision wether or not to have a third child.

“My children ask me to have a baby all the time,” she told the publication. “And you never know, I could squeeze one more in. I am missing my third. I’m thinking about it.”

“But I had a really bad experience when I was pregnant with my third,” she continued. “It didn’t work out and I nearly died. So I am like, ‘Are we good here or should we go back and try again?’”

Paltrow, 40, does say that she is proud that she and Martin, 36, are good parents, however.

“We are committed co-parents, we make all the decisions together and lean on each other for support,” she said. “[Chris] is so good to the children and to know that you had kids with such a good man is a real weight off you.”

“Regardless of what happens in our marriage, I chose the best father,” she said.

VIRAL VIDEO: Why is everyone making fun of Gwyneth Paltrow over this vid?

I can totally relate. It’s something I’ve been dealing with in my own life, lately. After my second son was born, I suffered two miscarriages that were pretty horrible for me, emotionally. I think having miscarriages back to back leaves me with these “ghost children,” if you will. It feels like I should have another child, like I’m not done. With that said, I can think of 20 reasons why I shouldn’t have more, it’s just hard to know for sure!

Gwyneth Paltrow Is Out Of Touch.

You heard me! Remember when Gwyneth Paltrow took a break from writing those exhausting, once-a-week GOOP newsletters? Well, she’s back, and now her site is “new” (ish).  Well, new enough to sell you overpriced stuff!

GOOP now boasts jeans on sale for $200 (that only go up to a size eight) and $90 for a Goop t-shirt (essentially, a white tee with black piping). The kicker? Gwen is also selling a  $515 sweater and a $485 sweater. They’re cashmere, of course, and on the website it prominently features the  “Chinti & Parker exclusively for goop” label, but at LEAST the sweaters come in a size Large! Geesh!

Sure, Chinti and Parker stuff usually goes for that much, but would it have been too much to ask to get a less expensive company to make quality sweaters for the site? Like Banana Republic or JCrew?

Do you thin Gwyneth Paltrow is out of touch, or is she just trying to keep her products very…very….very…exclusive?

Gwyneth Paltrow: Laughter, More Children and Marriage

Gwyneth Paltrow sure said a lot about her highly public- and progressive- marriage to Coldplay frontman Chris Martin in InStyle‘s October cover story!

For one thing,  the two might be highly successful at different things, but they really do share the same sense of humor and a lot of the same interests…along with the same sensitive artistic personality.

“We laugh a lot, and at the same jokes,” says Paltrow. “We like the same music and we like to do the same things.”

“Our artistic temperaments together [is the hardest part], artists are sensitive. There are ups and downs, mood-wise. Musicians need a certain gravitas and focus in order to write. The temperament that goes with someone who is creative can be challenging.”

Two peas in a pod! And is that pod growing? Maybe…

“My brain says, ‘Oh, I think I’m done, the kids are so big now, and I don’t want to go back to changing diapers..but a part of me would love to have another. Of course, I’m old now!”

Only 40!  And we know you’ve got another creative baby name in your back pocket!  Apple and Moses…and…?
