The 6 best quotes from Gwyneth Paltrow and Tracy Anderson's 'Redbook' interview

Gwyneth, we love you and your GOOPy ways, and you can rock a mini skirt like nobody’s business. From her cookbooks, to her detoxes, to her behind the scenes looks at getting ready for events, we remain somewhat morbidly curious about what it takes to be, well, Gwyneth Paltrow.

So we’re surprised we were so late to check out Redbook’s interview with Paltrow and her celebrity trainer Tracy Anderson, but we’re glad we did. They talk about sex, detoxing, last meals, and Gwyneth’s “Coke of the Week” tradition with her kids, which is more innocent than it sounds for the children of a movie star and a pop star. Click past the jump to check out the six best quotes from these two insanely fit blondes. READ FULL STORY

MC Gwyneth Paltrow and DJ Jazzy Cameron Diaz rap for Chelsea Handler -- VIDEO

Having successfully conquered the fields of film, lifestyle blogging, Glee guest starring, cookbookery, and fake country music, Oscar winner Gwyneth Paltrow has set her sights on another career: rap artist. She and pal Cameron Diaz — make that DJ Jazzy Cameron Diaz — teamed up to perform a rap song in honor of their friend Chelsea Handler, whose talk show will be broadcast from a new studio starting next week. If you like these guys already, you’ll find it charming. If you don’t, well, here’s some ammunition for you:

Stand Up to Cancer has raised over $81 million since Friday’s star-studded telethon.

ABC, CBS, FOX, and NBC dedicated an hour of commercial-free primetime programming to the nationally televised fundraiser, which was executive produced by Gwyneth Paltrow and Tenth Planet Productions’ Joel Gallen. The event, which was also broadcast on over a dozen cable networks, featured appearances and testimonials from Hollywood A-listers Julia Roberts, Matt Damon, Tom Hanks, Michael Douglas, Halle Berry, Samuel L. Jackson, Jessica Biel, Justin Timberlake, Robert Pattinson, and SU2C co-founder Katie Couric, among others. In addition to staffing the phone bank, stars like Taylor Swift, Coldplay, Alicia Keys, and Tim McGraw also performed on air.


On the scene: Braving the waterworks at the Stand Up to Cancer telethon

They wanted to move us. And oh, did they know how.

The highlight of the Stand Up to Cancer telethon helmed by Gwyneth Paltrow and a cast of A-list celebrities Friday at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles was Taylor Swift’s ode to a cancer victim, a 3-year-old boy named Ronan.

If you’re not getting emotional yet, Swift did it for you. The 22-year-old country singer struggled to hold back tears as she sang the touching ballad she wrote after reading a mom’s blog about losing her little boy to neuroblastoma last year. The song begins, “I remember your bare feet down the hallway, I remember your little laugh…”

The audience of Hollywood elite, cancer survivors, and fans choked up as they listened to this and other testimonies aimed at inspiring donors to give funds to the Stand Up to Cancer organization.


This week in weird collaborations: Schmidt from 'New Girl' guest edits Gwyneth Paltrow's newsletter

Even Gwyneth Paltrow isn’t immune to the douchey charm of New Girl‘s Schmidt. Paltrow invited actor Max Greenfield to guest edit this week’s edition of her lifestyle newsletter, GOOP — and the result is Schmidt-tastic.

According to the newsletter, Greenfield and the character he plays might just be one and the same. “How much of my happiness has to do with the fact that I now e-mail with GP? It’s definitely a percentage,” he muses in his opener. “Be it a small one, this is my truth and I am okay with it.”

Greenfield goes on to extol the virtues of Thom Browne seersucker trousers (“a trouser that lets people know you’re down to party in the classiest way possible”), George Clooney’s home in Lake Como (“Can’t mess with a classic. Haven’t been yet”), and eight other things he likes in the most Schmidt-y way possible. He explains the difference between a throw and a blanket. He reveals that he has a tortoise shell iPhone case. I could not make this up if I tried.


Gwyneth Paltrow feels the heat amid cookbook ghostwriter claims

Self-appointed lifestyle guru Gwyneth Paltrow is facing criticism that she employed a ghostwriter on her popular 2011 cookbook, My Father’s Daughter. On the heels of a New York Times article last week called “I Was a Cookbook Ghostwriter,” Paltrow took to Twitter Saturday to brush off claims she hired Julia Turshen to write My Father’s Daughter and has contracted to write another book. Tweeted Paltrow, “Love @nytimes dining section but this weeks facts need checking. No ghost writer on my cookbook, I wrote every word myself.”

“Gwyneth’s tweet speaks for itself,” Paltrow’s publicist told EW. “Julia is her food assistant and is properly credited and acknowledged in the book. Gwyneth wrote every word and developed every recipe. Julia was not a ghost writer for Gwyneth.” READ FULL STORY

Gwyneth Paltrow jokes about herself on 'The Chew'

For all those who love to hate on Gwyneth Paltrow (and you know who you are), here’s a little something that could maybe make you believe she kind of gets it. Paltrow visited ABC’s The Chew today, where her good friend Mario Batali is a co-host. Toward the end of the show, Batali and the other hosts (Carla Hall, Clinton Kelly, Daphne Oz, and Michael Symon) peppered Paltrow with questions she had to answer during the one-minute Celebrity Egg Timer segment.

Click after the jump to see how she answered this question from Oz about 51 seconds in: “If the name of your blog wasn’t Goop, what would it be?” READ FULL STORY

The top TiVo'ed moments from last night's Oscar broadcast: Cameron and J.Lo (and guest?), plus Gwyneth and RDJ's stunt

When it came to re-watching memorable moments from last night’s Academy Awards TiVo-ers couldn’t get enough of star pairings on the Oscars stage. The top TiVo-ed moment from the ceremony was, unsurprisingly, when unexpected BFFs (who knew?) Cameron Diaz and Jennifer Lopez presented the Oscars for Best Makeup and Costume Design and viewers pondered whether J.Lo experienced her own dreaded costume malfunction. (The consensus today is that no nip was slipped and the only thing that needed to be censored was a lively acceptance speech from the Best Documentary Feature winners.)

TiVo-ers also couldn’t get enough of watching Robert Downey Jr. and Gwyneth Paltrow presenting said award for Best Documentary (pictured). Was it real tension? Was it a riff on Joaquin Phoenix or, more likely, last year’s ubiquitous host James Franco? What happened to Gwyn’s cape that she’d worn on the red carpet? So many questions!

Soderbergh says 'It's always good to kill movie stars.' What's the most unexpected death scene?


If you’ve seen Gwyneth Paltrow’s brain dissected in Contagion, you know that Steven Soderbergh is willing to portray stars in a less than glamorous light. But in an interview with The Independent, the Oscar-winning director of Traffic and Haywire practically exuded blood lust for A-listers. Don’t worry, though: It’s all in the name of art!

“It’s always good to kill movie stars,” Soderbergh told the British newspaper. “I think that the two most important things that have happened to that aspect of movies in the last 50 years are Hitchcock killing off Janet Leigh in a way that nobody had ever dreamed of doing – taking his heroine and killing her off after 40 minutes – and… Mike Nichols casting Dustin Hoffman in The Graduate. That changed everything.”

Obviously this means Soderbergh’s greatest dream must be to kill off a character played by Dustin Hoffman. In all seriousness, though, it’s easy to see what he’s getting at. Star power has traditionally acted as a kind of metaphysical protection onscreen. The bigger the name, the better the chances of that actor’s character surviving for the duration of the film. We take comfort in movie stars, those walking embodiments of our dreams and fantasies. If in the midst of a Julia Roberts everygirl rom-com, she suddenly gets her head blown off, we’d find it more than a little upsetting. Psycho rocked everybody’s world when Janet Leigh’s Marion Crane stepped into that shower because people still saw her as the actress they had known and loved in gentle movies like Little Women, Holiday Affair, or the Lassie movie Hills of Home.

Today, movie stars’ onscreen mortality rate is pretty darn high. (WARNING! Many, many SPOILERS ahead!) It’s hard to imagine John Wayne in They Were Expendable or Kirk Douglas in Paths of Glory being offed as quickly or indiscriminately as Guy Pearce at the beginning of The Hurt Locker. Or Lauren Bacall suddenly getting blown up halfway through To Have and Have Not, like Maggie Gyllenhaal’s early exit as Rachel Dawes in The Dark Knight. And I’d love to have seen Joseph von Sternberg try to get Marlene Dietrich, queen of the Vaseline-covered camera lens, to submit to a scene like Gwynnie’s autopsy in Contagion.

Soderbergh clearly got us thinking, so here are ten of our favorite unexpected movie-star death scenes since Psycho. READ FULL STORY

2011's babes of Twitter
