Gwyneth Paltrow - Gwyneth Paltrow Chronicles Venice Trip In Blog Journal

Gwyneth Paltrow has chronicled her 48 hours at the Venice Film Festival in Italy over Labor Day weekend (03-04Sep11) in a new journal on her Goop.com blog.
Her 'Scrapbook from the Venice Film Festival', where she attended the world premiere of her new movie Contagion, features details of the "jam-packed happenings" and recipes from the Hotel Cipriani, where the actress stayed.
She recalls arriving in Italy late and starving and ordering "a perfect Spaghetti Pomodoro".
Paltrow also chronicles a "boat chase" as she and her castmates attempted to avoid the paparazzi on their way to a press conference at the Casino on the Lido.
The actress admits most reporters were interested in the hygiene of the stars.
She writes, "Yes, this movie made us wash our hands more often."
Paltrow also recalls fighting jet lag and revisiting the "same pier as the one at the end of The Talented Mr. Ripley" with Matt Damon, her co-star in that film and Contagion. She also explains that the premiere was the first chance she had to see the new Steven Soderbergh movie, about a pandemic outbreak.
The weekend in Italy ended on a sour note as her flight was delayed and she didn't get home until 8am for the school run.
