Gwyneth Paltrow Tried To Run Over The Paparazzi With Her Bike

October 12th, 2011 // 52 Comments

While filming Thanks For Sharing in New York yesterday, Gwyneth Paltrow decided to handle the matter of some pesky paparazzi with a little street justice. And by street justice I mean she tried to barrel into one of them on a bicycle because it’s not like you have to keep those things balanced or anything. GOOP-logic, she haz it. On that note, my favorite shot has to be the one just after she almost collides with the guy, mostly because I like to believe he opened his arms and went, “Man, fuck your organic paella, bitch.” I’m a dreamer.

    These people have NO right to do this. And I’m talking about the Hollywood folks. Yeah, the paps are a nuisance, pests – but these pampered and super rich starlets literally NO justification to actually ATTACK them physically.

    It comes with the job. If you don’t like it, you shouldn’t have tried to pursue the fame that comes with it in the first place. There are plenty of vacancies at your local McDonalds’ cashier desk. Or go fill the shelves at Target or something.

      Looks like this was in Central Park, were the pap was out in the street in her direct line. If it’s where I think it is, her choice was going strait forward, veering into traffic, or coming to a complete stop.

      The asshole photographer should have been slapped in the face with a sock full of quarters.

      • Jillia

        Yea Frankie. I’m gonna play devil’s advocate here. Just think about it. Excusing some of the things they do just because it’s “part of the job of a celebrity” doesn’t make it ok or make some of them any less of a blook sucking scum bag. It just fuels the paps to keep doing what they’re doing because it’s accepted. And because it’s accepted, they’re likely to push for a little more and eventually cross the line (Ala paps literally shoving the camera under someone’s skirt for an upshot. Sickening.)

    • jk

      Yeah right, I’m sure it’s in the contract they sign that all forms of privacy for the duration of their career and relevance to the world are shot an that anything is automatically required to be on public display.

      Shame she missed him, bigger shame it wasn’t a death bike with some large spike out front. They need laws against harassing these types of people when they’re out and about doing normal every day shit as it really is when it comes down to it is stalking behind gray area protected under the argument of freedom of the press. I would think someone riding a bike, buying food, getting gas, or being with their kids isn’t news worthy, and if they weren’t known people it wouldn’t be so it’s a bullshit double standard.

      I’m not a fan of actors, but I hate these trolling stalkers far more.

      • browny

        Um, 1) If it weren’t for the trolling paps these idiots (actors- and I use the term loosely in the case of Gwynnie) wouldn’t live the luxuriously privileged lives they live. AND
        2) SHE IS CLEARLY LOVING IT. I mean, what does she actually do? Can’t act, can’t sing and is fucking annoying telling the peasants how to live their (our) lives.
        3) What are you doing on this site if you hate the papps?

  2. rough & the beautiful truth

    You know Ive come to the conclusion that if there is not nip slips or scandal these sites are a total waste of time.

  3. Pretty sure this fits the legal definition of “assault”.

    • Hey Hick Fuck You!

      The retard probably just can’t steer. Anyone that would spend 20 grand for a desk lamp can’t be that bright.

    • Venom

      Tough to say, if she was travelling in the current line that she was riding in and he placed himself in her path, then it would not be assault. If he was positioned where he was and she changed her path and aimed the bike at him then that is a different story.

  4. Area Man

    Too bad she didn’t take a few of them out at high speed. Now THAT would have been a Kodak moment!

  5. forrest gump

    …………put your hands on the wheel, you handicapped!!

  6. JC

    Brilliant decision making. Because when you hit someone or something while you’re riding a bike, there’s absolute NO risk to you, the rider. Like Sherman tanks, those bikes.

  7. Mr. Ed

    Amazing, a piece of shit riding a bike.

  8. jamawalk

    she looks exactly like when Sweet Dee pretended to be retarded in order to get on welfare on Always Sunny.

    “Can’t you SEE how retarded she is?”

  9. ace11

    She has a GREAT ass

    • yeah but it doesn’t eclipse how retarded she looks here. sorry but the only adults who belong in bicycle helmets are mental patients. it’s creating a pussy society.

      • Crabby Old Guy

        All over that, dude. WTF is it with apparent “adults” wearing bike helmets? You’re on a fucking bike, you fall off. If you crack your skull, well, deal with it asshats.

        Worse is when supposed “adult” males wear them. Grow a dick – what’s next, baseball player cards clipped to their bike spokes so they can make that cool “motor sound”?

    • rough & the beautiful truth

      I knew a tough guy that refuses to wear helmet ,once. While he was riding in the streets, he successfully avoided someone exiting their car, which he had to swing in the middle of the street. But unfortunately he was greeted with the might of a 45 miles per hour cabby, head first. Overall his reputation as a toughy is still unblemish to this day.

    I thought the paparazzi only photographed famous people.

  14. I only wish it were Kirsten Dunst doing this, if only because of her fang-tastic smile.

  15. Longshot421

    I know she’s expert at everything, but…her helmet doesn’t fit properly, her seat is too low, and it looks like she bought a frame one size too big. So I don’t think she’ll qualify for the Tour this year. Sorry, bike snob.

    • AnnaDraconida

      My thoughs exactly. She looks dumb & awkward.

    • Snack pack

      Actually, I think the frame size is OK, but the stem is way too long. Agree with everything else you said. Plus with her elbows bending in like that, she would be injured far worse during any head-on collisions than whatever she hit. Now if there was only some way to make that happen . . .

    • Studs Smerkel

      @Longshot 421 :
      How expensive of a bike is that ? 4K? or more ?

    So it looks more like she was trying to avoid hitting the back of some type of cart, then aiming for the idiot with the camera. And I would bet that the paparazzi was not willing to move either…. Look at the first photo and her distance away from the sidewalk. Compare to the photo with the guy and his arm out… Notice that giant silver thing that “randomly” showed up? Somebody forgot to crop the picture better.

  17. kingofbeer

    She can run me over any day :)

    Isn’t she afraid of Helmet Hair ?

    I absolutely hate and despise her, but I want to do her. She is pretty damn hot.

    On a related note, has anyone watched her best buddy Mario Batali’s new show The Chew? It is like an entire panel full of assholes like herself discussing food. I got through about 7 minutes of it before I had to turn it off.

    I bet it’s the first and last time she’s using that brand new bike. Next year she will bought another when she’ll get the envy of cycling for 5 minutes and get bored immediately after.

    Someone needs to tie this bitch to her bicycle and push her in front of an entire herd of hartebeests.
