Until now, I had never fully considered the possibility that Gwyneth Paltrow
i dare her to come back to this country and say that. why is it that celebrities criticize the U.S. while they’re overseas, yet never open their mouths here? (jessica lange opened her big fat mouth in the last year or so, so did jared leto, etc). you know what, gwynnie? stay in england. dont ever come back. why do you bother calling yourself an american since you obviously hate america?
3023 people died at the trade towers bombing, 52 at london bombing? Am I right about the numbers? But maybe SOMEONE is in therapy is they were close to one of the 52… Im sure she does not know everyone in England yet to know that no one is in therapy.What is wrong with therapy if someone you know dies??? Is Gwen into scientology now?>
Gwyneth is insinuating that Americans are emotionally weak. If someone’s loved one is blown to bits by a terrorist…she’s basically saying it’s weak to cry or mourn. Is that why she’s cried and mourned publicly over the death of her own dad? Shut your mouth Gwyneth and PLEASE stay overseas. Just continue doing yoga 4 hours a day, getting spa treatments and naming your kids after fruit. In fact, name the next one that’s on the way after you…..FRUITCAKE.
I know someone who won’t be getting a memorial when she DIES! It won’t be long before Londoners give her the boot, then she can move to Iraq and praise the terrorist for their perserverence in trying to kill us!
That was so insensitive in her part.
She sounded like that crazy guy, Bill Maher.
I think she should stay in London forever.
maybe she doesn’t say it in the States, because she doesn’t want to be labelled a terrorist..
Let me think…4 jumbo airliners are hijacked, flown into multiple buildings, including two of the tallest structures in the world, causing billions of dollars in damge, thousands upon thousands of humans seared, crushed or lept hundreds of stories to their death, hundreds of police and firefighters lose their lives in the rescue effort, and this cold bag of urine compares that to one double decker bus in London and 52 deaths? All murders are horrific, but I heard that more people died at the last John Tesch concert.
Yes. We have something in the UK called “freedom of speech”. Some of your older American readers may remember it.
it’s the whole “our tragedy is worse than yours” thing that does it. Both countries were attacked. Yes, america lost far more people than england, but they both represented an attack on our societies.
Just one country chose to tell the world about it every day since, the other’s decided to get on with it.
I agree wholeheartedly. I’m sure that everyone who rode the tube the next day was comforted by the fact that “only” 52 people died. Oh, and “only” seven or eight hundred were injured, some losing limbs and others suffering permanent disfigurement.
it’s not the number of deaths nor how they died. It’s that no one, no matter who they are or what country they live in likes to hear someone, regardless of what nationality they have make an insensitive statement lke that.
saggy breasts aside, the woman should learn a little restraint.
Saying positive things about londoners WITHOUT insinuating negative things about americans would probably have been a little bit nicer. we like the brits a bunch. we do.
yeah, i’ll agree that it’s insensitive to insult the bereaved (anyone remembering the whole Billy Connoly and Boris Johnson thing with Ken Bigley?), but i think at the end of the day, you won’t find people over here with 7/7 tattoos. There just seem to be a number of folks who weren’t even involved in the attacks on the WTC, that seem to glorify in their misery.
Same as any emo kid who won’t stop going on about the pain in his life.
Let’s take her down to a local firehouse in NYC and have her make that statement…
Celebrities should really think before they speak. Just because you’re famous, doesn’t mean your smart.
Especially when most celebrities never go to college or don’t have anyone around them that will question what they think (in an intellectial way, of course).
I think zenmasterfoo’s probably right. But then by the same token, maybe commenters who disagree with ol’ saggy tits should criticise her comments without belittling our tragedy.
seriously, she’s got a point, even if she didn’t put it tactfully
take a look at a brit’s teeth and tell me they havent learned to live through the ugliness around them… bristish people are about as friendly as my grandmother is when we steal her dentures and put them on the dog….
see, and not one brit on here has made a Big Mac comment.
hang your head in shame, Popz9
Well, a great majority of Americans ARE self-involved, emotionally fragile, whiney pussies. It’s true. Read any message board or comment section online if you don’t believe me (*kah-wink*). But I’m sure you can add Gynnie’s name (hell, my pussy-asss name, too) to that list of Americans with their heads up their asses. That’s part and parcel of growing up in this awesome comfy sofa of a country. We’re kinda spoiled.
And the idea that death only gets more relevant as the body count rises is an inane logic turd (particularly since we all know damn well that part of the sobbing reaction to our country getting attacked and 3000 people dying was geographically motivated…..if it happened in Canada no one would care…even Canadians, or maybe they’re just too polite to complain, but I digress).
However, the day I stop having an emotional reaction to people dying and America being wounded on such a vast scale, is the day they should take away my Mangina License and recycle my emotionless corpse. Until then, quit pretending that anytime someone criticizes the US that they “hate Ahmerca”….they may just hate your stupid ass. And as ill-conceived as their comments may be, you may be doing yourself a diservice by dismissing them, as they might just very well have a small point lodged in their arguement….somewhere.
Like mine….I think we can all agree that my point was something or other….I think it was about badgers or something. Wait…what was I saying….?
The Brits are a tough lot, no doubt. She aint a Brit. She’s a spoiled little tart with the intellect of a Sea Anemone. Want to talk about “getting over it”? The Brits still dislike the Germans. Need I write why? She’s part of the see me, feel me corps that gets press for farting.
To be fair, bafongu, she does fart golden fairies and love. It’s a medical fact….
