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.

    BIG NEWS FLASH…NEWS AT 9
    Gwyneth Paltrow Drinks!!!!

    HELLO…SHE NAMED HER BABY APPLE!
    You literally have to be sitting around, DRUNK & STARVING, looking at a fruit bowl to come up with that name! Trust me! My dad was drunk and sittin on the toilet, and he calls me “You Lil Shit” all the time.

  2. #17 Far be it from me to defend Gwyneth, but that pronunciation of Anthony isn’t pretentious. As far as I know, it’s the standard pronunciation in most English-speaking countries and it’s the one I’ve always used.
    Actually, I thought that’s how AH pronounced his name. He’s certainly been interviewed by people calling him Anthony with a silent ‘h’. Perhaps he uses both.

    HEY ASSHATS commenting on the sushi thing, did it say she was eating sushi??? NO it said she was at a sushi bar, if I’m not mistaken this dumb bitch is a vegan and adheres to a macrobiotic diet which you’re only supposed to follow if you have certain cancers, so she’s a stupid twat for more reasons than one, and the only thing she’s done in the past 10 years that hasn’t annoyed me is drink beer while pregnant, I may have to change my opinion of her now and say she’s cool

  4. Libraesque

    btw #52, A.H. does not prefer that pronunciation of his name, he was interviewed the day after the oscars and totally made fun of her and rolled his eyes about it

  5. bafongu

    Is this one going to be named Balthazar, or Methuszela or maybe Marcus Lucinius Crassus?

    Dorks, I can’t believe you MORONS don’t know that it’s perfectly healthy to drink beer and wine while you’re pregnant. It’s also perfectly healthy to shoot smack with used needles you find in alleys behind strip bars, and snort blow off the seats of dirty truckstop toilets when you’re pregnant. It’s good for the baby. Gives the ol’ immune system a jump start.

    Everything I have ever read about alcohol and pregnancy is that they are not sure about what amount is safe so it is better not to take the risk. What is the point in having one drink anyway, and how do all of you defenders of Gwyn know how many drinks she had? I don’t really care if her kid has FAS its the nanny stuck with it anyway.

  8. MrsRobinson

    Who would mix sushi & Guinness? They’re good separately, but together: ick.

  9. What’s the big deal if the woman has a beerr- god, it’s not like she was hammered. Leave her alone, the only differnce between her life and our is we don’t have some asshole following us and taking our picrures pointing out all of our flaws. You guys need to find a life!

  10. People, people, obviously the gist of this entry is all about the first two sentences:

    “Gwyneth 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.”

    Clearly those people were pointing and saying, “Look, she’s visibly annoyed.”

    But Gwyneth just didn’t understand that you can’t melt into the corner when you are PREGNANT AND FAT, just like she doesn’t understand that you can’t name your kids Apple and Mortimer.

  11. HughJorganthethird

    I’d drink to if I had such an ugly child.

  12. emily

    uhh I’m from the UK and EVERYONE drinks Guinness when they’re preggo — not every day, mind you — but it’s an old wives tale that drinking a guinness a month helps in digestion and gives the baby nutrients it minght not otherwise get. you guys are all fucking losers.

  13. HughJorganthethird

    When you preface “you guys are all fucking losers” with “I’m from the U.K. ” you kind of lose your credibility? Now go brush your teeth for once and stop calling people names.

  14. HughJorganthethird

    When you preface “you guys are all fucking losers” with “I’m from the U.K. ” you kind of lose your credibility.

    So go brush your teeth for once and stop calling people names.

    #52/Santori…I’m sure you noticed post #54. However, why are you pronouncing it Antony? What is up with that? I’m from New Jersey, where 25% of the population is named Anthony, and no one says Antony.

  18. Papahotnutz- you always make me laugh!

    why is she trying to change anthony’s name? I mean, were all mad shes naming this kid mortimer…mickey mouse didnt even fuckin like that name… and apple? oh fuck these people are crazy.

  19. Ms Crackalackin

    This week’s Star magazine says Apple is going to have a sister, so you can stop with the Mortimer comments ;). It will be interesting to see what she names her. It will either be a take-this-mutthafuckas Apple-ish name, or a we-screwed-up-bigtime-with-APPLE normal name.

    As for the beer, I’m 8 weeks along myself, and I quite frankly, I can’t wait till my 2nd trimester to go to some bar with the hubby and order a pint, and if anyone stares or comments, I’ll tell them my doctor recommended it for the iron and vitamins, so shove it.

  20. Jayne

    #67 must be an uninformed dumbass.

    Antony is an old latin name; it’s not like someone in the 21st century said “Hey, let’s drop the H and be cool about it.”

    Why you would use the shithole known as Jersey as a back up argument makes me feel bad for you.

  21. Maeve97

    #70, Jayne, you ignorant slut.
    I have heard of Antony before, as a different name.
    Don’t bash NJ. My family is already on its way to your house.

  22. #22 – that’s why Europeans suck.

  23. radio3play

    #63, Thank you!!! “go brush your teeth” hahahaaaaaa
    Yeah why do they all have nasty teeth? i think it’s because of the inbreeding on that pea sized island.

  24. radio3play

    Apple is not an ugly baby. Lets pick on the mom, not the baby.

  25. deluxxe

    here’s a tip. if you don’t like the pointing and waving, get take out! I’m sure there’s lot of places to eat your sushi inside your 20 million dollar downtown NYC appartment.

  26. A baby sister?

    Do I hear Pineapple? HAR!

  27. Yeah, making fun of a baby is intelligent. You can lay into her parents all you want, but it’s pretty classless to call a child “ugly”. I mean, come on now. Grow up.

  28. little_fleabag

    Wouldn’t you feel the need for a beer or two if you were married to that sanctimonious whingebag Chris Martin? Surely it is a god thing for that macrobiotic, holier-than-thou bitch to try and have some fun!

  29. claudia

    I think some of you guys might be American which is why you’re getting a bit fired up about the drinking thing, I know you come down pretty hard on how drinking. In Europe it’s seen as perfectly fine to have a glass of wine with dinner, Guiness in particular is stacked with iron so it’s actually really good for the child. Some doctors would even suggest this or red meat if your iron is low. I think that Gwen is a veggie so guiness it is!

  30. sparkmonkey

    Apple is a cute kid. It’s not her fault she has a dim Mommy. As for the drinking, kicking back an “occasional” beer will probably not hurt fruitlet# 2 but even regular moderate drinking could pose risks throughout a pregnancy.

  31. MissAppropriated

    Come now my friends, Mortimer the old Jewish accountant will probably benefit from a slug or two of Guinness. Undoubtedly he’s swinging drunkenly off the ol’ umbilical cord praising the Lord that his mother has laid off the macrobiotic pumpkin seeds for an evening. Poor child probably needs the iron. Go Gwynnie!

  32. CheekyChops

    Guinness is full of iron and they use to give it to women who just gave birth while still in the hospital in the UK. I see nothing wrong with her having one before the birth. She’s a star – she’s superhuman anyway, right?

  33. TaiTai

    #11 the headphones are actually so she doesn’t have to listen to her father’s lame-ass band playing its crappy music. No kidding, it was taken at the Live 8 concert while Coldplay was playing.

    Having Chris Martin for a father is far worse than being named Apple. Can you imagine — what if he sings around the house all day? I bet she wears those headphones 24/7.

  34. LRonHubbaHubba

    She should name the fetal alcohol syndrome victim “Antony” to continue to annoy the world.

  35. Nimuë LaMer

    Hey #65 (and 66 and 67)

    In NJ, it’s not pronounced Anthony OR Antony.

    It’s Ant’ny, for fuck’s sake.

    You must live in Western Jersey (read: Pennsylnowhere) and nowhere near Sopranoland.

  36. starchitect

    I was actually reading articles about drinking during pregnancy yesterday, as a friend who’s a huge wine fan just found out she’s pregnant. The USA, it turns out, is about the only country in the Western World that has such a black or white view on drinking during pregnancy. Most everyone agrees that you shouldn’t drink in the first trimester, but most doctors in the rest of the world (and a bunch in the USA) say that a beer or glass of wine from time to time in the 2nd and 3rd trimesters isn’t harmful. As long as you don’t have more than 1 serving a day, you should be fine, it seems. In fact-there are a number of ob-gyns who recommend a glass of red wine, port, or heavier beer, to prevent nausea and also false labor pains.

    Leave it to the country founded by the puritans to start pointing fingers and shouting ‘witch’ and whatnot.

    I would definitely be more concerned if she were eating raw fish, but just because she’s in a sushi bar, doesn’t mean she’s partaking. At least she’s not spending all her time inhaling second-hand smoke and eating Cheetos like some OTHER celeb moms!

  37. Santress

    The key word is moderation. Hopefully, it’s just a 1 beer from time to time case and not a situation of semi-regular to regular drinking. Even the Public Health Agency of Canada has weighed in on this:

    How much drinking causes FASD?

    Alcohol may cause brain and nervous system damage in the developing baby. There is no safe amount of alcohol during pregnancy. There may be no safe time to drink alcohol during pregnancy.

    We know that a baby’s brain is very sensitive to alcohol while it is developing, but we don’t know how much alcohol it takes to do this damage. Research shows that children born to mothers who drank as little as 1 drink per day during pregnancy may have behaviour and learning problems. Binge drinking – or drinking a large amount of alcohol in a short amount of time – is especially bad for the developing baby.

    Stopping or cutting down drinking alcohol while pregnant will help ensure a healthy baby. No alcohol is the best (and the safest!) choice for having a healthy baby.

  38. I’m American, and I don’t think that a woman should be drinking during pregnancy especially early on. But my thought is, I bet that a beer during her third tri-mester is less dangerous than getting put under in the hospital for a Cesarean section. Just a thought. That said, I can’t believe that Paltrow married somebody with less of a sense of humor than she has. Honestly, has her husband ever smiled? The guy looks like one of those mole rats that squints if it ever sees sunlight.

  39. Libraesque

    Whiners, you must shut up! That is an ugly fucking baby and you know it, she looks just like her pasty father, my eyes bleed when I see pictures of her. Why is everyone making such a big deal about a beer when Britney is dancing all night in Vegas throwing back half a dozen cosmos when she’s three months along?????

  40. Maeve97

    #85, if you must know, I live Northern Central NJ. I take offense to being labeled Western NJ.
    And if you are pronouncing it Ant’ny, I am going to guess you live in Seaside or Belmar?

  41. princess373:
    No studies IN THE US have been done because the medical establishment is so paternalistic it can’t trust women to make educated decisions for themselves.

    Plenty of students have been done in other countries and having a glass of wine or a pint of beer while pregnant is FINE–and in some cases even recommended.

    Moderate drinkers showed NO incidence of FAS. And with excessive drinkers who continued drinking during pregnancy, the results are complicated by the fact that these tend to engage in other irresponsible and damaging behaviors (like chain smoking during pregnancy, doing other drugs).

    As far as the sushi issue, if it is high-quality, she would be fine. In a good NY restaurant, eating sushi while pregnant is not a huge issue.

    Personally, I do not drink while pregnant and I am a vegeterian (and by the way I love eating avacado sushi).

    I could care less about HER, but it pisses me off that people think that because you are pregnant, you are subject to all of their unsubstantiated medical advice.

  42. Listen. We all know that ‘regular’ rules for ‘regular’ people do not apply to Gwyneth. She lives in la la land. Where the Americans are dumb and the British are dirty (depending on which side of the pond she’s on).

    She’s a nut. But she’s a better, more intelligent, more articulate, more cultured, more aware nut that everyone else in the world who isn’t in her nutty little circle.

    What did you expect?

  43. HughJorganthethird

    That baby’s so ugly it makes me want to drink.

  44. She should continue this maybe this it might work…considering her ugly gentics. Maybe she can fuck her body up and make a mircale happen.

  45. Conductor71

    In 2 years time he’ll be digging “dootie bubbles” out of her ass while shes freebasing tofu

  46. Dee

    well that explains how she came up w those baby names…do you think she kicked back a few w julia roberts during HER pregnancy? What the hell is wrong w people?

  47. Fan999

    BIG DEAL. Children born with fetal alcohol syndrome are children of chronic ALCOHOLICS, people who drink all day long every day, not occasional drinkers or even someone who has one drink.

  48. gogoboots

    She’s full of it and does look like she’s ready to pop. She’ll probably name the baby Lochness or something at this rate.

  49. Don'tPanic

    #88…”my thought is, I bet that a beer during her third tri-mester is less dangerous than getting put under in the hospital for a Cesarean section. Just a thought”

    Um, you don’t get put under for a c-section. So she’s in no danger there.

    Personally, I don’t think Apple is ugly and I like Coldplay so I’ve got nothing.

  50. kitty_kat

    I’m not gonna jump on the “Guinness is good for you while you’re pregnant” banwagon just yet. The medical community is ALWAYS saying that stuff is good for you (and even forcing it down your throat) only to find out years later that it is actually harmful. You can’t trust everything they say all the time. You have to use discretion.
