Have you ever read Gwyneth Paltrow's website, GOOP? Well, if you haven't - you probably should. It's really not bad, and it can be quite addictive, for some people (not my cup of tea though). What would a gorgeous movie star like Gwynnie want with her own website? In GOOP, she talks about where to dine (L'ami Louis, where you can occasionally spot the French President), what to buy for your man on Christmas (cashmere socks for US$45..is Chris getting that for Christmas?) and where to stay when you're in Paris (the Ritz...HELLO! Who can actually afford to stay there?).
If you have kids, why don't you buy a cooking book from one of her celebrity friend? Or if you want to be buff, watch an exercise video done by one of her friends. Oh, and what kind of book does Gwynneth read? Of course she would read Jane Eyre and Crime & Punishment. If you need entertainment, go to the London Tate or NYC Met (the museum...not the baseball team). Beautiful, classy, rich and very very cultured. She's the perfect woman.
Okay, to be honest. I really don't find anything useful in her website. I live a totally different life and I can't afford anything she recommends. It makes me wonder...WTH is Chris Martin doing with her? But at the same time...I admire her. She wears her heart on her sleeve, and she's sharing a piece of her to the rest of the world. That takes courage. In this website, Gywnn is being herself....the beautiful, wealthy and famous actress who calls both New York and London home. She's not pretending to be anyone else. And I like that....a lot.
I really really want to hate her....but I just can't. I don't know why. And I also read the GOOP Newsletter every week. I'm pathetic.
