US actress Gwyneth Paltrow prefers British dinner talk

Translation: U.S. liberal finds other U.S. liberals shallow, uneducated and boring to talk to.

Plus, about not fitting into the bad side of American culture. Does Paltrow fit into the good side?

For one, Apple was born out of wedlock. While Paltrow could be kind and stuff, that shows a bit of sluttiness.

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.

Her mother has more class in her pinky than Gwyneth has in her entire body.

I dunno...maybe her mother was the influence that made her pro-Brit. After all, she was named "Gwyneth," wasn't she?

NEPOTISM. That's one of the many hypocritical issues the hollywierdos have-- most of them are only rich/ famous because of their mommys, daddys & grandparents.

If she's as intelligent as she thinks she is, she's going to regret making such an arrogant statement. Probably she will say some things were mistranslated from Portugese to English.

"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,"


Gee, easy for her to say after having been lucky and rich enough to go to grade school that costs $30K a year.Lucky enough to be paid millions a year.

What's the f'n problem of millionaire actors who suffer such terrible angst and self loathing?! Oh I forgot, it's due to the fact that anybody can be an actor, what other job requires zero education or skill that allows 8 year olds to rpetend to be someone else.

Please stay in Europe and never make another movie again.

Where oh where is Kevin Spacey when you really need him in character?

Thank God she equates Madonna with British culture- or someone might have thought this was American culture!



There is hope for us - Having both of them emigrate raises the collective IQ of America! Maybe they can entice Britney and the Dixie Sluts to join the cultured hoi polloi. But somehow I would bet that, like most pompous American film stars who trash their country abroad, both Madonna and Gwynnie retain American citizenship and pay American- not British- taxes.

the accumulation or the lack thereof -

mostly lack thereof, and in France too. Which is why we are so hated (and envied) in Western Europe. Americans work their tails off for all the wealth we have created, but thats a fact reported so little. The European and liberal view is that somehow all we undeserving boors have been born into all this wealth, when so much of the world (and deservedly so because it's self made) lies in poverty. I have visited Europe a few times and when I see all these people sitting in outdoor roadside cafes smoking and drinking beer all day, I can't help but wonder -- do they ever work ?

Don`t forget during the Revolutionary War, the British chose to wear bright red coats in the snow. I truly think that is one of the reasons why they lost, I mean can you imagine the kind of ambushes the rebels pulled on them? You could see them coming from miles away, a buch of red dots against a pure white background..

"Blast!! The bloody rebels have found us again! By Jove I don`t understand why we can never sneak up on them!"

Interesting comments, but the subject of this thread is dinner conversation and in that Paltrow is correct that money is a taboo subject in British society at all levels.

What in the world *do* Hollywood communists talk about at dinner?

Homosexuality? Spinning all news and entertainment for political agendas?

I mean, really. What do they talk about? Perhaps that's the problem - who she's hanging around with at those dinner tables.

Perhaps if comrade Paltrow were to dine with some non-Hollyweird, non-leftists for a change, her droopy disposition might improve.

She could have said only "dinner conversation is better here" and have been done with it. Instead, she goes further and says, "The British are much more intelligent and civilized than the Americans," which is inflammatory and flat out not true. What, people in Silicon Valley aren't smart? The men and women who work for NASA aren't intelligent? The US has the greatest collection of univeristies on the planet. There are 300,000,000 people here. Has Gwyneth dined with all of us? As far as "civilized" goes, one is 5 times more likely to be mugged in London than in New York City and Britain has spreading tension between it yobs and unassimilated "Asian" population, so you can make the case that civilization in breaking down in England, but in reality every country has its problems.

She marries a goddamned rock star -- a mediocre one at that -- and hangs out with Madonna and presumes to hold forth about how cultured she is? Yeah, I'm sure her husband's rock star friends give better dinner conversation and then they roll a spliff right at the dinner table and don't talk about how much they paid for the weed because that would be crude and all to talk about money that way at the dinner table.

She hung out in Hollywood and Manhattan which are money centric and didn't realize that it was her friends who were talking about money. She simply has a different set of friends in England. She's not bright enough to see that. If a British girl came to the US and dated a basketball player and hung out with only him and his friends, she might start to think that all Amercians are tall. But only if she's as dumb as Gwyneth Paltrow.

Now I wish the DVD for A Perfect Murder had an alternate ending. You know, one where Michael Douglas gets away with it.

What gets my goat even more so about "GWENNY" here is that she has had EVERYTHING handed to her since she was born. It's real easy for silver spoon sucking idiots like her to say thinggs like this, given the company she's only surrounded herself in her whole life.

You are preaching to the choir, dear.

My only favorable comment about Ms Paltrow's remarks was that she was correct to say that talking about money is not the done thing in Britain - considered very crass.

Blythe Danner is wonderful. No doubt about that. She's is in one of my favorite "little movies" - The Great Santini.

Drudge is linking to this article now. Rather bad publicity for Gwyneth. I expect a retraction or at least a modification from her publicist anytime now.

Boy, one of the most dangerous (and time consuming) jobs these days is being a Hollywood publicist in damage control mode!

And I agree about the Great Santini. I always thought it was one of those movies that the name had a big effect on its success. Terrible and misleading title.
