LISBON (AFP) - Oscar-winning US actress Gwyneth Paltrow feels dinner talk is far more interesting in her adopted homeland Britain than back in her native country.
"I love the English lifestyle, it's not as capitalistic as America. People don't talk about work and money, they talk about interesting things at dinner," she told "NS", the weekend magazine supplement of daily Portuguese newspaper Diario de Noticias on Saturday.
"I like living here because I don't fit into the bad side of American psychology. The British are much more intelligent and civilized than the Americans," the 34-year-old added.
Paltrow, who won a best actress Oscar for 1998's "Shakespeare in Love," lives in London with British band Coldplay's frontman Chris Martin whom she wed in 2003.
She said having US pop star Madonna, 48, who married British film director Guy Ritchie six years ago, nearby was another advantage to living in London.
"She's like an older sister. Everything I have gone through, she went through ten times worse and ten times longer. She gives me good advice about how to say no and take care of myself," said Paltrow.
Of course, Madonna recommended to her to have her baby in the States because the health care system in England sucks.
to Miss Paltrow: Oh bugger off you Brit wannabee!
So she admits her Hollywood crowd is stupid?
LOL, she surely has never dined with any normal Americans.
Well then Gwyneth you should become a citizen of GB, and pay their taxes.
"The British are much more intelligent and civilized than the Americans,"
What an utterly idiotic thing to say.
Fine. I'm glad she's happy. With a little luck she will renounce her citizenship and we'll have one less lib.
Maybe American "table talk" is about things we can have an effect on, rather than bitching about things we can't do jack about.
IOW, don't let the door hit you on the way out, Gwyneth.
The bloody b**ch!
The problem isn't with America, but with the particular (Hollywood) circles within which Paltrow traveled in America.
There must be a Bull S. somewhere in her BS.
She's a vacuous, skinny, flat-chested air-head...nothing in there, folks! Let's move along and find someone worth gossiping about....
Then why don't you give up every American dollar you made huh?
Or is that you just like to take advantage of us capitalist pigs?
LOL! Millionaire actors mocking capitalism. Might as well read an article about what Lindsay Lohan thinks about the United States, that's how much I care about the overrated Gwyneth Paltrow. Her mother has more class in her pinky than Gwyneth has in her entire body.
She's a memeber of the leisure class. One musn't take her too seriously.
I wish that all the Hollywood empty-headed, self-righteous goons would all move to England. And that includes their media who thinks that we are interested in what they have to say. UGH!
They are just so much more sophisticated than we are....
What a graceless (very bad word). Dinner talk? Nice loyalty to her native country, which made her rich and famous. I'm sorry, but she's just not that attractive and in different circumstances, with different parents, would be a bit player not a movie star. She wins the Dixie Chicks Patriot Award of the Week.
I considered the source and their company, thought about it for five seconds and then laughed.
Then become an English subject instead of a sovereign American citizen.
