Gwyneth Paltrow, pregnant and drinking

March 30th, 2006 // 108 Comments

*gwyneth_paltrow_pregnant_drinker.jpgGwyneth Paltrow was visibly annoyed at the stares and pointing when she had dinner with hubby Chris Martin on Tuesday at lower East Side sushi bar Cube 63. “People were looking and waving, and she just tried to melt further into the corner,” according to one witness. Diners observed Martin pick up several bottles of Guinness at a nearby deli, and they were surprised when Paltrow, who is five months pregnant with the couple’s second child, drank one herself.

Now if there’s one thing I know, it’s that babies need tons and tons of booze. Or maybe milk. I can’t really remember which. This may be why I flunked out of vet school. Seriously, those were some of the ugliest babies I’ve ever seen.

    Let’s jump-start that kicking her in the stomach convo again! Even if it has eyes on its temples from fetal alcohol syndrome, she could never produce a second baby as ugly as Apple.

    you stupid stupid girl

    Ooooh – double whammy, drinking & eating sushi while pregnant! Both considered a no-no!

    Actually, many doctors say the (very) occasional glass of wine or occasional beer won’t hurt, I’m just amazed that someone so in the public eye would actually dare to do it in front of a crowd of people!

    f@ck peeps. why can’t celebs do what they want to do in public? being pregnant and drinking a beer every now and then is not bad…it actually has some healthy qualities to it.

  5. jugsgirl

    Shes only 5 months prego?

    She is huge!

    Is she pregnant with an entire fruit basket?

    Imagine her @ 9 months.

    Someone please punch her.

  6. Tha-Flash

    Oh it’s only one drink, chill out!

    Oh geez, get a grip people. Guinness (and small amounts of other beers as well) is often recommended by doctors to help settle the stomach when pregnant. Now they don’t tell ya to go get trashed, just have one glass or half a glass (or excuse me, “pint”). For some reason, the heaviness of the drink helps to stave off nausea. My mom did it (although she drank Miller, only because she wasn’t a drinker and Guinness was too heavy for her!), several aunts & cousins have done it, and we all turned out A-OK. And the last time a cousin of mine was advised to have some Guinness was just a couple of years ago.

    NOTE: this is not to say that it’s okay to drink LOTS of alcohol when pregnant. In small amounts, and on occasion, it can be helpful. In large amounts all the time, it can be fatal or debilitating to the baby. But one Guinness here and there isn’t going to do long-term damage and it’ll help a nauseous mom keep some food down, hence nourishing her child-to-be.

    I don’t know what’s worse to imagine: her drinking while pregnant or her naming her kids mortimer.

    Either way, it’s clearly child abuse.

  9. mamaE

    jesus, if i had people pointing, staring and waving at me while i was hugely pregnant and eating, i’d have a drink too. and she’s more like 7 or 8 months preggers, which means it really is okay to have a drink. and sushi can be okay depending on what you choose and especially if you ate it before getting knocked up.

    why the hell am i defending her? drag her through the streets!

  10. Gee, that self rightious cow spent years going on and on about how she follows a macrobiotic diet because other foods are unhealthy and she only eats organic, blah blah blah. Well I guess, it’s only your health you give a crap about. Oh, and Gwyneth, a little make-up couldn’t hurt.

  11. Italian Stallion

    Cousin It has children? Thats news to me!

    The Head phones must be so when people say their name they don’t hear how fucked up it actually is….

  12. boogaloo

    #1 – right on. that poor child takes after her daddy unfortunately.

    but I gotta say a beer or two during 3rd trimester is NOT gonna do anything.

    Didn’t she also go on about she’d never have a nanny or anyone else taking care of her children?

    Every picture I see of Apple has some woman OTHER than Gwyn taking care of her.

    I just thought I’d add to the hypocrisy known as :Gwyneth:

  14. suzy

    oh, i wonder what tom cruise will say about this!

  15. prideofchucky

    Trust me, witlooking at those parents he’s got a lifelong of drinking ahead of him. Hell, the earlier the better.

  16. prideofchucky

    Trust me, LOOKING at those parents; he’s got a lifelong of drinking ahead of him. Hell, earlier the better!

    I used to like Gwyneth until she insisted on snobbishly referred to Anthony Hopkins as “Antony” like a hundred times at the Golden Globes. I was like, wait is that how we are supposed to be pronouncing his name, or is this how British people do it, or what? Later on he was asked and he said that his name is really pronounced “Anthony.”

  18. jour hadique

    guinness is relatively low in alcohol and has a good amount of iron in it, which is good for preggers bitches. in fact, they tell women in england that they can/should have 1 guinness a day when they are knocked up. all of this, however, does not change the fact that shes an idiot. ps: id toss it in her if she wasnt so bloated from having that parasite syphoning off her guinness intake.

  19. PapaHotNuts

    I personally don’t care if she drinks a cup full of diesel and then smokes an 8-ball of the purest crack on the planet. She can jump on a broken-glass covered trampoline and bare knuckle fight a stomach-kicking gorilla. I don’t care if she bobsleds down a mountain on her fat pregnant belly- nothing she does now will ever hurt the baby as much as being raised by those two jackasses. On top of having those two chuckleheads for parents and a sister maned Apple, his name will be Mortimer. Because of his name alone, he can forget about ever doing anything else in life but being an old Jewish accountant. Day 3 of kindergarten for Morty will be like this:
    “Hey Billy, let’s play cowboys and Indians!”
    “OK Johnny, sounds great!”
    Then Mortimer asks “Can I play?”
    And the boys say, “Fuck off you old Jewish Accountant.”

    she was annoyed, well then don’t leave your house. didn’t your dad at least tell you before he died that this comes with the territory?

  21. asha

    ok I dont really think this is true, but in any case, having lets say a glass of wine every now and then isnt so bad, but to drink in the public eye? What was she thinking!!! Its as if she wanted the tabloids to write about her…!

  22. It’s so European to drink alcohol and eat raw fish while pregnant, foolish Americans.

  23. Trixie

    Give the girl a break. You can have an occasional glass of wine, or beer while pregnant. It’s actually better to do it later in the pregnancy, and she is due in the next month or two. Our parents (okay, anyone born in 60s or 70s) usually smoked AND drank during their entire pregnancies. Not only did they smoke in their hospital beds while they held us, the doctor would come in with chart in one hand, and a Camel in the other. It wasn’t uncommon for ashtrays to be bedside back then. AND WE ALL TURNED OUT OKAY..LAY OFF GWYNYTH ALREADY.

  24. Libraesque

    I agree with #7. She’s definitely out of the danger zone at 5 mos., and if you think about it, back in the old days people drank and smoked cigs in moderation while pregnant, it’s not dangerous. That Apple is one FUUUUUGLY kid, damn!!!

  25. Celetina

    The alcohol is one thing, but sushi? No matter how well-prepared it is, there are so many toxins in raw fish that no one without a developed immune system (i.e.: a fetus) should be eating it.

    Then again, maybe she thinks birth defects are cute. Maybe she just doesn’t give a damn. I can’t pretend to understand the mind of a woman who’d name her kid “Apple”.

  26. OK, when you name your kids Mortimer and Apple, you seriously need to be removed from the gene pool.

    It’s all an attempt to stay in the public eye. Like Paris Hilton and…well, anything she does.

    Speaking of which where’s the Superfish article on Paris Hilton recording with 3 6 Mafia?

  27. Jacq

    Papa, hilarious as usual. It pains me that I’m not that witty.

    #26 – Saw that on MSN this morning, I’m just glad that 36 Mafia finally figured out that winning Oscars just isn’t where it’s at. They will probably be showered with success beyond imagination now that they’re hitching a ride with that star.

  28. Nimuë LaMer

    I just have to say:
    I ADORE PapaHotNuts!

    You rock my face!

    As for Gwenyth, Guinness and sushi… I think naming the kid Mortimer is the worst abuse of all.

  29. #13. LOL

    As for the person (#23 Trixie) who said that they all turned out ok because all their parents drank during the 60′s. Damn, you’re on this site and we’re all one big happy family here so I won’t type out any of the great comments I could make to that comment I will leave it just by saying that you left yourself WIDE open. (Grin)

  30. gogoboots

    I would find it annoying if people were pointing at me because I was eating sushi and pregnant. Also, Guiness has a lot of iron and vitamins, it’s ok to have it when your pregnant, just don’t make it a habit or anything.

  31. Sparks

    First of all, she’s not 5 months pregnant – the baby is due in May, so try and count ;)

    Furthermore, there’s nothing wrong about drinking one bottle of beer when you’re pregnant. It’s total nonsense that you can’t drink ANY alcohol or coffee when you’re pregnant. It’s true that it’s not the healthiest thing to do, but your baby definitely won’t turn ugly just because one tiny bottle of beer!

    And whoever says that Apple is an ugly baby, should shut the fuck up and look at their own baby photos!!

  32. snark

    Really, now! We’re picking on a *baby* for being ugly?

  33. chiris

    Not all sushi is made of raw fish. There are some made of vegetables only and stuff like that.

  34. so she likes Guiness..you know what this means…she’s dropping hints…when the baby is born she’s going to name it Stout….plus she’s relatively sure it will have a big head…but that one was a given…

  35. HughJorganthethird

    Hey it’s not my fault that Apple kid is ugly. It’s her recessive gene parents who are to blame for that one. Drink up Gwyneth you annoying faux-british nut job.

  36. oshkoshb-goshdammgosh

    Dear Gwinnie,
    There’s absolutely nothing wrong with drinking while pregnant. Nor is there anything wrong with taking your SAG card, a Coldplay CD, and a half gallon of rat poison, blending it in a food processor, and funneling it into your ear canal. It promotes healthy lactation and is chock-full of iron.

  37. Trixie – back in the day, that’s also what they said about thalidomide.

  38. lolpop

    OKAY- i don’t know about wine, but A MODICUM OF BEER CONSUMPTION BY THE MOTHER CAN ACTUALLY BE GOOD FOR A BABY AFTER THE FIRST WEEKS, ESP GUINESS. There is some debate, of course, but I’ve heard this for many years

  39. monkeywithnoeyes

    Guinness in a bottle?? god damn you crazy yanks

  40. monkeywithnoeyes

  41. lill

    You’re all a bunch of dumbasses! It’s perfectly fine to have a drink every now and then when pregnant. It’s not like she’s shooting heroin for Christ’s sake. As for the sushi, what do you think Japanese women eat when pregnant? As for her large belly, if any of you have had more than one baby, you know that you get bigger faster with each pregnancy.

  42. boyingcruz

    The baby is not ugly godammit!

  43. jugsgirl

    dumbass I may be. but she is a fatass. that is way too big for 5 months.

  44. mija289

    I’d be more concerned with the sashimi, and depending on if she got sushi with even sushi grade fish than I would If she was having a beer. Shellfish/raw fish is a helluva lot more chancy than a few swigs of beer or wine. I doubt she’s a regular drinker, and yeah, it’s better not to have any, but a little won’t hurt….I was told 2 different docs.

  45. Miss_Marple

    I am concerned that she’ll pass her anxiety on to her next baby, creating another thumb-sucker. Traits like that can be passed on… It’s along the same lines as, if your parents are depressed then you will most likely be depressed. Depressed people have a certain way of being. Children learn by modeling, blah, blah… You know the story.

    Actually-its not as bad as it sounds!
    in the first few weeks of pregnancy is the worst time to drink alcohol because its a really vital delicate stage of formation but ive heard doctors saying that a unit ot two of alcohol isnt that bad. PLUS guinness is well known to contain lots of iron. Ive even heard of it being given to anaemic pregnant women to help with iron levels. hence the whole ‘guinness is good for you’ slogan. its also often given after donating blood for the same reasons. im of course not condoning drinking during pregnancy but people should know these facts before bashing her mother skills. anyway the womens a well known health freak i dont think she’d purposefully endanger her unborn baby especially for the sake of a pint of guinness-the stuff is disgusting, and im irish!!

    Snark, of course we pick on ugly babies! If they didn’t want us to, they shouldn’t have been born. Right?! I hope that baby #2 looks like something from Conan O’Brien’s “If They Mated” bit. That would be awesome.
