While promoting her new movie Contagion at the Venice Film Festival, Gwyneth Paltrow apparently took time off from demanding the canals be filled with Perrier – organic Perrier – and apropos to who the hell knows, decided to announce she “respects and admires” her friends that have cheated on their spouses because apparently she’s not constrained by Victorian sensibilities on marriage. I have no clue. The Daily Mail reports:
Miss Paltrow said: ‘I am a great romantic – but I also think you can be a romantic and a realist.
‘Life is complicated and long and I know people that I respect and admire and look up to who have had extra-marital affairs.
‘It’s like we’re flawed – we’re human beings and sometimes you make choices that other people are going to judge.
‘That’s their problem but I think that the more I live my life, the more I learn not to judge people for what they do.
‘I think we’re all trying our best but life is complicated.’
Read: “Chris Martin has sex with other women right in front of me without even using a coaster, but I don’t judge him because I live my life with a quiet sensibility filled with relatable advice for moms and palpable disdain for anyone whose house isn’t adorned with hand-painted wallpaper.” And speaking of that last part…
Remember when Gwyneth “saved” a woman on 9/11 by almost running her over and had no idea about it? Well, now she remembers the whole thing and it was such a touching and personal moment that – wait for it – she feels sorry for anyone who had the same encounter but with a non-famous person. You seriously can’t make this shit up. Via Reuters:
“It was an extraordinary story and all I could think about is all of the people who had experiences like that that day, but aren’t able to reach out because it wasn’t a recognizable person,” said the 38-year-old Oscar winner.
“If only it was me who caused every single freak encounter that prevented someone from entering the towers that day, but now there tales are sullied with poor people so they might as well have died. It’s tragic really.”
