Gwyneth Paltrow - Gwyneth Paltrow's Short Drive To Party

Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin insisted on being driven to a dinner that was just four properties away.

The actress - who has previously starred in public service announcements for environmental campaigns - and her Coldplay frontman husband were among the guests at a party thrown by Stella McCartney at her Hollywood boutique in celebration of her father Sir Paul McCartney's new music video 'My Valentine', which was followed by a dinner at a nearby restaurant on Friday (13.04.12).

While stars including Orlando Bloom and Miranda Kerr, Jane Fonda and Amy Smart were happy to walk the 0.06 miles to the Madeo eatery, Gwyneth and Chris were driven to the second venue, a journey that took just 10 seconds.

A source told the New York Post newspaper: ''It's a short walk. Also at the dinner was Gwyneth with husband Chris Martin - except they left the party in a gas-guzzling Town Car, were chauffeured a few feet and got out at the restaurant that was pretty much next door to the party.''

Despite taking the car for the short journey, both Gwyneth and Chris have previously backed environmental campaigns and around 18 months ago, Coldplay were named patrons of non-profit environmental law organisation ClientEarth.

The group aims to bring dedicated legal expertise to the environmental movement across the globe and address big environmental challenges.

"Consciously Uncoupled" Paltrow, Martin, Reunite At The Screening Of Simon Pegg's New Movie 4306282 News

Conscious uncoupling or not, there may still be hope for Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin – in the friendship department, at least. Multiple sources, including Us Weekly, report that the pair looked completely at ease with one another, when they attended the premiere of Hector and the Search of Happiness on Monday, July 28, in East Hampton.

Gwyneth Paltrow
Post-separation, Patrow and Martin are keeping things civil and even friendly.

The former couple reportedly stuck together throughout the event and the afterparty.

According to the “observer,” quoted by Us Weekly (how creepy is that?) Paltrow entered the movie theater shortly after Martin and the two did not pose for any photos together. Still, Paltrow "was all smiles and joyful.” She introduced Hector star Simon Pegg as “my very dear friend and my daughter’s godfather.”

With Martin also seated in the crowd, Paltrow went on to say the family was "very proud" of Pegg. "He's the biggest movie star in our family," she concluded.

At the cocktail party later in the evening, Us Weelky’s “observer” apparently kept a close eye on the proceedings and later reported “Paltrow mostly talked to party goers and was completely engrossed in conversation.”

Meanwhile, Martin hung out on the sidelines alongside Paltrow’s mother, Blithe Danner. In conclusion, apparently the split was just as amicable as the two made it out to be back in March.

If Music Was Chris Martin’s Saviour, Coldplay Turned Royal Albert Hall Into A House Of Worship 4270030 News

Chris Martin is a man saved; by music, that is. The Coldplay musician has endured a tough year plastered over the tabloids with his recently divorced ex-wife Gwyneth Paltrow, propelled by the unforgivably grating 2014 buzzphrase, "conscious uncoupling."

In the midst of the gossip and gloom, Martin and his Coldplay bandmates released Ghost Stories, a melancholy album of electronica dabblings suffused with the inevitable emotional turmoil of a relationship breakdown. The British quartet brought their latest chart-topping record and a selection of other hits to London's Royal Albert Hall on Tuesday night for a stripped-back and intimate performance.

Inviting fans at the sold-out show to be as close as workably possible, Coldplay managed to make the gig feel a tenth of the size; an illusion helped by the seeming absence high vis-clad concert wardens, a photo pit or heavy onstage theatrics. Instead, the band placed an emphasis on the stripped back aesthetic to give a reassuring "calm after the storm" vibe.

With concert-goers close enough to reach out and touch the 37 year-old frontman, Coldplay went back-to-basics to centre the focus back on the music and away from the headline scandals and speculation.

It was an approach that seemed to work: "it was a treat to see the band in this comparatively intimate space," said The Telegraph's Adam Sweeting whilst The Guardian's Ian Sweeting was cynically observant of Ghost Stories, describing it as a "morose wallow in self-pity virtually bereft of the band's trademark majestic melodies and soaring choruses."

"The gorgeously propulsive Clocks and God Put a Smile on Your Face re-emphasise that they may be much maligned but few, if any, stadium-filling bands routinely dream up such sublime, mercurial melodies," he decides.

Speaking to BBC Radio 2's Steve Wright's Big Show, Martin was philosophical about the period of his life that Ghost Stories emerged from. Revealing that music was "a life-saver," the frontman said "You can choose your paths in life, I find, when you get to a point where you're like 'I could either jump off a bridge or I could try and turn this around.'"

"I'm sure lots of people have that in much harder instances. You just find the right tools [...] I feel so grateful. Especially over the last couple of years, music has been alchemising. I'm very grateful to be here. Every day is a blessing. That's how I feel," Martin said.

The 10 Most Ridiculous, Annoying, Infuriating Things Gwyneth Paltrow Has Ever Said 4230966 News

Gwyneth Paltrow is a very annoying celebrity. There, we said it. It might seem harsh, but really the actress and former half of the now 'consciously uncoupled' Martins just doesn’t help herself thanks to the seemingly endless stream of annoying and downright infuriating things she comes out with. This time it’s that “water has feelings," last week it was likening her online experiences to “war”. It seems somewhere along the way between winning and Oscar and founding her ‘lifestyle’ brand GOOP, Gwyneth has lost that little part of her brain which should cause her to think before she speaks. If you’re not convinced that Paltrow has jumped the shark into annoying celebrity territory then may we present, ‘the 10 most ridiculous, annoying, outrageous, infuriating, whatever you want to call them things' Gwyneth Paltrow has said. Really these are just the tip of the iceberg.

Gwyneth Paltrow Gwyneth Paltrow, where to start...

1. Gwyneth likes to remind us all that she’s friends with Jay-Z because he’s a rapper and that’s cool, which makes her cool even though she married Chris Martin. The actress said, “I don’t hold on to fear as much as I used to, because I’ve learned a lot about genuinely not caring what strangers think about me. It’s very liberating. It’s very empowering, and I’ve learned a lot of that from Jay - Shawn Carter - Z, because his approach to life is very internal. It’s a very good lesson to learn.”

2. On hallucinating during a hike in Sedona, Arizona, Gwyneth recalled, “I was starting to hike up the red rocks, and honestly, it was as if I heard the rock say, ‘You have the answers. You are your teacher.’ I thought I was having an auditory hallucination.” This one actually could be the answer as to why she talks such nonsense, the rocks made her do it.

3. “I would rather die than let my kid eat Cup-a-Soup,” the actress told Conan, exaggerate much, Gwyneth?

More: This Week, Gwyneth Paltrow Said Water Has Feelings

4. “I think that women, especially women in my job, come to me because they know I’m very loving and nonjudgmental and I’m not competitive, and I’ve been through a lot.” It’s the non judgemental part that gets us here. What if we came for advice with a Cup-a-Soup?

5. Unsurprisingly, Gwyneth drew the irk of mothers and humans in general when she effectively said her job of starring in one or two films a year was much harder than anyone else's. ”I think it's different when you have an office job, because it's routine and, you know, you can do all the stuff in the morning and then you come home in the evening," said Paltrow. "When you're shooting a movie, they're like, 'We need you to go to Wisconsin for two weeks,' and then you work 14 hours a day and that part of it is very difficult. I think to have a regular job and be a mom is not as, of course there are challenges, but it's not like being on set.”

Next: 'Concious uncoupling', 'war' and other Gwyneth gems.

6. Then there was the statement, she brought out after separating from Chris Martin. "We have always conducted our relationship privately and we hope that as we consciously uncouple and co-parent, we will be able to continue in the same manner,” wrote Gwyneth, inventing both a new pharse and a whole new level of pretentiousness.

Gwyneth Paltrow The now consciously uncoupled Gwyneth

7. Since Gwyneth knows everything, especially when it comes to other peoples feelings, she decided to tell Americans how they should have reacted to 9/11. “I find the English amazing how they got over 7/7." she said. "There were no multiple memorials with people sobbing as they would have been in America. There, they are constantly scaring people but at the same time, people think nothing of going to see a therapist.”

8. Proving she's actually been annoying for longer that we first though, a 29 year old Gwyneth once said,  “Beauty fades! I just turned 29, so I probably don’t have that many good years left in me.”

9. Of course last week, the actress compared her online experiences to war, "You come across [online comments] about yourself and about your friends, and it's a very dehumanising thing. It's almost like how, in war, you go through this bloody, dehumanising thing, and then something is defined out of it.” Hopefully to Gwyneth, almost like war actually means nothing like armed combat at all.

10. Finally, down to earth Gwyneth said, “I am who I am. I can’t pretend to be somebody who makes $25,000 a year.” No you can't, but you could try using a little empathy some times Gwyneth.

So, Now Water Has Feelings. When Will Gwyneth Paltrow Learn? 4230828 News

We’re veering away from thinking that Gwyneth Paltrow is pretentious towards thinking she’s just outright bonkers. Like, we can sort of get on board with the whole “conscious uncoupling,” divorce is an ugly thing and creating a more positive term and concept behind it isn’t totally looney. Then there was that whole “office mothers” thing, in which Paltrow compared being an office mother to a film actress, a far harder and more time consuming job in her opinion. We can kind of forgive her for this because, well, growing up in Los Angeles, the daughter of actress Blythe Danner and director Bruce Paltrow, it’s obvious she’s going to be a little void of reality. Paltrow’s probably never met a real working mother, at least not one who isn't the CEO of a company with numerous au pairs.

Gwyneth Paltrow Water Gwyneth Paltrow has published a blog talking about the "science" behind how negativity impacts water

When she married husband Chris Martin, English middle-class hero, we figured there must be something slightly down to earth about her for the relationship to work, but hey, it didn’t, so there goes that theory. She’s regularly sprouting new age nonsense, but her latest statement may be the most outrageous yet.

So, what exactly is it that she’s said this time? Well, Paltrow published on her website GOOP:
 “I am fascinated by the growing science behind the energy of consciousness and its effects on matter. I have long had Dr. Emoto's coffee table book on how negativity changes the structure of water, how the molecules behave differently depending on the words or music being expressed around it. Below, Dr. Sadeghi explores further.”

Right, so firstly who is Dr. Emoto? Emoto is a “researcher” who performs non-scientific experiments on water. You heard us right. There is literally NOTHING legitimate about his experiments, the findings of which he claims he has discovered that water reacts negatively to hurtful words. Real scientists have actually tried to recreate Emoto’s experiment. Unsurprisingly, they have failed.  Dr. Emoto’s research is enough proof for Gwyneth though, because who needs evidence to support a theory? Not Ms. Paltrow!  If it sounds wacky, she's a subscriber.

Now we’re sure that Paltrow will post some super pretentious follow up blog explaining her stance on the whole sensitive water thing and we’re really looking forward to reading it.

In the meantime we probably won’t avoid saying hurtful things around water because...we’re not crazy.

This Week, Gwyneth Paltrow Said Water Has Feelings 4230474 News

Gwyneth Paltrow, the 41-year-old Hollywood person who is actually a pretty good actress as well as a mother to two children, has claimed that saying negative things to water can hurt its feelings. Writing on her clean living website GOOP, Paltrow said she has been following the work of Japanese scientist Masaru Emoto, whose experiments to attempt to investigate whether human consciousness has a direct effect on the molecular structure of water.

His theories suggest that getting angry and shouting at a bag of rice could turn it bad.

"I am fascinated by the growing science behind the energy of consciousness and its effects on matter," Paltrow wrote.

"I have long had Dr Emoto's coffee table book on how negativity changes the structure of water, how the molecules behave differently depending on the words or music being expressed around it."

"Japanese scientist Masaru Emoto performed some of the most fascinating experiments on the effect that words have on energy in the 1990s," added Paltrow's friend Dr Habib Sadeghi.

"Emoto poured pure water into vials labelled with negative phrases like 'I hate you' or 'Fear'. After 24 hours, the water was frozen, and no longer crystallised under the microscope: It yielded grey, misshapen clumps instead of beautiful lace-like crystals."

"In contrast, Emoto placed labels that said things like 'I love you' or 'Peace' on vials of polluted water, and after 24 hours, they produced gleaming, perfectly hexagonal crystals."

"My hope is, as we get out of it, we'll reach the next level of conscience," she added.

Gwyneth Paltrow Claims Negativity "Changes The Structure" Of Water 4229797 News

Gwyneth Paltrow has put her foot in her moth once again.

In recent months the 41 year-old actress has managed to attract a lot of haters due to several controversial comments she has made. But Paltrow's latest observation is just flat out bizarre.

The 'Iron-Man' star posted a statement on her lifestyle website, Goop, about the intriguing qualities of water, claiming the compound has the ability to feel negativity.

Paltrow promoted the work of Japanese doctor Masuru Emoto, who created the theory that the structure of water can be affected by the human consciousness.

"I have long had Dr. Emoto's coffee table book on how negativity changes the structure of water," her blog post read. "How the molecules behave differently depending on the words or music being expressed around it."

"I am fascinated by the growing science behind the energy of consciousness and its effects on matter," she added.

Emoto's theories have been unanimously slammed by his peers, but the Oscar-winning actress still asked her friend, Dr. Habib Sadeghi, to explain what the doctor was trying to prove.

"In his experiments, Emoto poured pure water into vials labeled with negative phrases like 'I hate you' or 'Fear.' After 24 hours, the water was frozen, and no longer crystallized under the microscope: It yielded grey, misshapen clumps instead of beautiful lace-like crystals.

The theory certainly doesn't sound too convincing, but this just adds to Paltrow's very debatable statements she has made in recent weeks. When discussing the abuse she receives online, mainly through social media, Paltrow compared it to getting ready to go into battle.

Paltrow claims water can alter from negative thoughts

Gwyneth Paltrow Suggests Water Has Feelings, Earns Tidal Wave Of Scorn 4229636 News

Gwyneth Paltrow has yet again found herself in the midst of a sea of derision over comments she has made about...well, life. Obviously there was the whole "conscious uncoupling" debacle, then there was the time she compared her internet struggles to real life war and then the constant use of ingredients like "mint flavored liquid chlorophyll" in recipes on her lifestyle blog, Goop.

The latest controversy? It's another Goop goof: after Gwyneth used her blog to announce her split from Coldplay frontman Chris Martin, all eyes have been on her online journal for more developments. This time, the 41 year-old Iron Man star talks about "the energy of consciousness" and suggests that water may be a sentient element with feelings.

"I am fascinated by the growing science behind the energy of consciousness and its effects on matter," Paltrow writes. "I have long had Dr. Emoto's coffee table book on how negativity changes the structure of water, how the molecules behave differently depending on the words or music being expressed around it," she adds, citing the work of Dr. Sadeghi, an entrepreneur who has been widely criticized for his theories.

Naturally, like many things the film star does, Paltrow's words have caused a lot of head-scratching and jeering articles. One actress musing on her slightly alternative beliefs is hardly cause for headlines but frame her words with the recent controversy she had courted and you build a picture of a star who is rapidly losing her credibility.

Gwyneth ruffled some seriously powerful feathers when she compared the cyber-bullying she endures to a military conflict in a speech at a web coding conference. "It's almost like how, in war, you go through this bloody, dehumanizing thing, and then something is defined out of it," the actress said.

Her comments soon attracted criticism from the likes of Presidential candidate and Vietnam war vet John McCain: "Gweneth (sic) Paltrow is a joke. Her life is like taking bullets for a soldier. What a joke! My 2 sons serving in the military should talk to her... Perhaps Gweneth (sic) Paltrow should go out on patrol with some soldiers. Kind of like a red carpet in her mind I guess!" he tweeted.

Here's Why Gwyneth Paltrow Inspires Open Letters And Open Criticism 4225559 News

On May 27 Gwyneth Paltrow put her foot in it. Again. This time Paltrow has come under fire for comparing reading mean tweets about herself to war. Because the two things are totally on a level with one another. Paltrow said: “You come across [online comments] about yourself and your friends, and it’s a very dehumanising thing. It’s almost like how, in war, you go through this bloody, dehumanising thing, and then something is defined out of it…My hope is, as we get out of it, we’ll reach the next level of conscience.”

Gwyneth Paltrow critics Gwyneth Paltrow finds reading mean comments about her "dehumanising"

For a second let’s ignore how thoroughly disconnected Paltrow is from reality and focus on what it is she’s actually said. It makes little to no sense. She seems to have plucked out the conclusion that once someone has fought in a war they can look back and think, “Oh, well that’s all OK, because it defined something.” Once they’ve figured this out, they can move to the next level of conscience. Basically, WTF?

MORE: Actual soldier responds to Paltrows foot-in-mouth comment.  And he's not happy.

Well, we’re not the only ones thinking that exact thought. Green Beret Sergeant First Class Bryan Sikes has written an open letter to the Iron Man actress, in which he says, “I can only imagine the difficulty of waking up in a 12,000 square foot Hollywood home and having your assistant retrieve your iPhone, only to see that the battery is low and someone on Twitter…has written a mean word or 2 about you.”

Sikes continues, “You know what is really ‘dehumanising,’ Miss Paltrow? The fact that you’d even consider that your life as an “A-List” celebrity reading internet comments could even compare to war and what is endured on the battlefield.”

This isn’t the first time that Paltrow has received an angry open letter in response to one of her thoughtless comments. Earlier this year, after comparing life as a Hollywood film star with that of an office mother (a job she considers far easier and less time consuming than her own), Mackenzie Dawson published an open letter in the New York Post, sarcastically saying, “Thank God I don’t make millions filming one movie per year.”

Paltrow responded with her own post on her website GOOP, entitled "Mommy Wars," which was, put simply, even further off the mark than her original statements.

Gwyneth Paltrow critics The actress has been the subject of not one, but two, open letters in 2014

It’s these eloquent retaliations from informed people that Paltrow should fear far more than the mean comments that “dehumanise” her. They truly bring to light the sheer ignorance that comes from speaking before really thinking.

Rather than some long-winded response on GOOP why not try apologising for your comments and admitting you were wrong and have no idea what you're talking about?  That may be the best way to end "War Wars."

Suddenly a troll or two ain't lookin' too bad, hey, Gwyn?

More Bad PR: Cindy McCain's Response To Gwyneth Paltrow's War Comment 4225378 News

Gwyneth Paltrow’s PR blunder is just getting worse and worse. After Paltrow was slammed by an actual green beret for comparing Twitter hate to being at war, Cindy McCain has taken aim at the actress, too. McCain, the wife of Senator John McCain, who is himself a decorated veteran, had this to say to Paltrow, in 140 characters or less:

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" align=center lang="en"><p>Gweneth Paltrow is a joke. Her life is like taking bullets for a soldier. What a joke! My 2 sons serving in the military should talk to her.</p>&mdash; Cindy McCain (@cindymccain) <a href="https://twitter.com/cindymccain/statuses/471821738737930241" rel="nofollow" >May 29, 2014</a></blockquote>

<script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

Paltrow made the offending comments at a tech event, Re/code’s Code Conference, where the list of guest speakers also included Microsoft C.E.O. Satya Nadella. “You come across [online comments] about yourself and about your friends, and it’s a very dehumanizing thing,” the actress said on stage. “It’s almost like how, in war, you go through this bloody, dehumanizing thing, and then something is defined out of it. My hope is, as we get out of it, we’ll reach the next level of conscience.”

McCain continued in another tweet:

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet"align=center lang="en"><p>Perhaps Gweneth Paltrow should go out on patrol with some soldiers. Kind of like a Red Carpet in her mind I guess!</p>&mdash; Cindy McCain (@cindymccain) <a href="https://twitter.com/cindymccain/statuses/471822686222823427" rel="nofollow" >May 29, 2014</a></blockquote>

<script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

When it comes to tactlessness, Paltrow is an easy target. Her Goop website has taken off, but she has also been accused of failing to relate to non-movie star Americans. Her war comment, made just a day after Memorial Day, just feeds into the negative image.

But Paltrow has also been lauded for speaking out against online harassment and abuse against women in particular.

But after the recent backlash, Paltrow might want  to consider the context next time.

Gwyneth Paltrow Criticized By Real Soldier Green Beret Bryan Sikes For War Comments 4224641 News

Gwyneth Paltrow received lots of criticism as of late for her recent controversial comments, comparing online abuse she sustains to fighting in a war.

The Hollywood actress has already been publically slammed by Cindy MCCain, the wife of former U.S. Presidential candidate and Vietnam War vet John MCCain, but now an actual soldier wants his say.

When speaking about being subjected to daily abuse online, Paltrow said: "It's almost like how, in war, you go through this bloody, dehumanising thing, and then something is defined out of it. My hope is, as we get out of it, we'll reach the next level of conscience."

Green Beret Bryan Sikes did not appreciate this comparison at all, and in response he wrote a lengthy open letter to the 'Iron' actress.

"Let me be the first to burst your bubble," Sikes wrote on Clash Daily. "A long line at Starbucks, your driver being 3 minutes late, a scuff mark on your $1,200 shoes and a mean tweet do not constitute difficulty in the eyes of a soldier."

"I could see how you, and others like you in 'the biz,' could be so insecure and mentally weak that you could pair the difficulty of your life on twitter to my brothers who have had their limbs ripped off and seen their friend shot, blown up, burned and disfigured," the angered soldier continued.

"You know what is really 'dehumanizing,' Miss Paltrow?" Sikes added. "The fact that you'd even consider that your life as an A-list celebrity reading Internet comments could even compare to war and what is endured on the battlefield. You and the other A-listers that think like you are laughable."

Sikes' letter concluded by stating, "Understand me when I say this: war does not define me. It is a chapter in my life that helped shaped me. Being a husband and father is what defines me. Remember, sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never.be close to what war is."
