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.
This is simply another case of an American airhead who is easily fascinated by people with an accent different than her own.
So what is it, that the media feels compelled to ooh and aah over?
What sophisticated conversation could a Hollywood actress possibly have? What a moron. But, I guess those who purchase tickets to her films are sophisticated, at least during the 90 minutes she's on screen. And, Madonna? She's pure trash. Can you just imagine the "sophisticated" dinner conversations between those two? Arrggghh! I'd rather eat nails or drink very heavily.
"The British are much more intelligent and civilized than the Americans,"
Gwyneth, you can just Edith me.
Isn't that what Cornwallis said
Paltrow is Hollywood royalty, as they say. It was all handed to her on silver platter. Her father was an A-list TV writer/producer, her mother a highly regarded stage and screen actress. Struggle, the need to make make money, putting food on the table, these are foreign concepts to her. Her noblesse oblige attitude reminds of the scene in The Aviator, when Howard Hughes dines with Katherine Hepburn's family. Hughes is talking about his projects, and the money involved, and Mrs. Hepburn blanches.
" We don't care about money here.
Well, that's because you have it.
Would you repeat that?
You don't care about money because you've always had it."
"With talk like, this I suspect she's getting ready to run for president as a Democrat."
The hate America DUngheap crowd must be enjoying this, given that they hate America more than shallow Gwyneth.
In sum, I wouldn't give much credence to anyone who would name their child, Apple.
Thanks for the link -- that is an AMAZING detail! Yeah, Gwyneth loves the UK but doesn't actually want to live like a Brit if she has the wherewithal to hop on a plane and crash in L.A. until she has her children. If only she could fly from L.A. to London every night while she's expecting so she could have some intelligent conversation at din-din time.
European-centric, racist twit.
How do you like American money???
Translation: U.S. liberal finds other U.S. liberals shallow, uneducated and boring to talk to.
Another gormless Hollywood twit.
For one, Apple was born out of wedlock. While Paltrow could be kind and stuff, that shows a bit of sluttiness.
Not very civilized thing to type.
The one on the right's an Aussie.
"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."
And what, pray tell, does the brilliant madge talk of over dinner?
Sleeping with dennis rodman?
Or any of the hundreds of others?
Sheesh, what a maroon.
She may have a point
If nothing else having Madonna on the block would at least guarantee lower property values in the area.
This simply speaks tot he stumps she has sitting around her table in America. But then again a stump is the intellectual equal of these supercilious drones.
