She’s been getting a lot of flack lately. First her lifestyle website, GOOP, listed her top spring must haves. A list that totaled up to well over $100,000. Then she was named People magazine’s most beautiful woman. This past week she showed up wearing a see-through side-paneled dress that showed all of her assets.
In the past she’s even been quoted saying things like,” I can’t pretend I make $25,000 a year because I don’t”.
She works out for 4 hours a day dancing around to Tracey Anderson – and now they’ve opened torture excercise schools all over the world. So we can all have tight, toned, dancer’s bodies. Ummm. Sure.
She named her kids Apple and Moses.
I get why she has haters.
But I have a soft spot for her.
I love all her horrible movies. I love all her great movies. Sliding Doors, Se7en, Shakespeare In Love, Sylvia – loved them all.
I loved her on Oprah talking about her perfect macrobiotic life and “mysterious” marriage to Chris Martin.
She’s absolutely ridiculous and out of touch. I know we could be besties. I really do.
There’s a ton of people who deserve haters; Kim Jong-un, Kim Kardashian, Mark Sanford – you get the point.
But why do people hate GP so much (that’s what dedicated readers to GOOP call her, fyi)? Speaking of GOOP, her website, they’ve added a new feature. Every month they highlight a different, esoteric, completely-out-of-touch-with-the-majority-of-the-world company. This month it’s Foundwell. If your only worry is how to stock a vintage bar – and money is no object – it’s for you. And although money is a huge, massive object for me, it’s for me too. Because that kind of flight of fancy doesn’t bother me. It makes me insanely curious. I dream about the people who really do go on the site and see the $950 sterling silver shot cup and say, “finally, I’ve found it”.
So give her a break will ya. She ain’t so bad. She can’t help her rich, untouchable life. She was just born that way.
