Sound Off: Ugh

Gwyneth in her Hamptons home, from the Nov. House & Garden

I can't stand her.

Anyone with me on that?

Leah said...

Thanks, Jennifer -- and welcome!

If there are any other lurkers out there, please please please jump in and say hello.

Because some days I seriously wonder if I'm just sitting here, talking to myself ...

Thanks!

I'm indifferent to GP, but mucho turned on by Mr. GP.

... and you are NOT talking to yourself.

Leah said...

Corine,

Coming from you, shouldn't that be "tres turned on"?

Live near Gwyneth here on Long Island but not in the same $$$ zone!!

Absolutely love your blog and check it daily! Am a professional woman, have three kids (son in college in NYC, daughter in HS, daughter in first grade) and find perusing through your writings after a long day thoroughly enjoyable!! Keep up the good work and fun! Tara

i never liked her, couldn't even stand to watch any of her movies (except that one with Ben Affleck). now i really hate her. i thought i was alone in this. i feel so much better.

I'm certainly not a fan and honestly i don't think her home is very special either. While the individual pieces are lovely, it seems so impersonal and cold without any real personality- much like GP herself actually...She has the same facial expressions in every movie and if she hadn't been raised in hollywood she'd probably be working in the shoe department at Target. There i said it.

Have you seen Kathy Griffin riff on GP? Very funny stuff.

And no, you're not just talking to yourself, I enjoy your blog :-)

tass (back to lurking now)

I'm confused. Are we actually trashing Gwenny Gwen Gwen because we really dislike her or are we trashing her in a "damn that girl fine", got a fabulous hubby who writes amazing songs about her, amazing body, great hair, might not be able to act but who really cares, she's the face of Estee Lauder therefore she's everything I've ever wanted to be and morec so I hate her kind of way because if its the latter I say "word Leah!" - but if its the former I'd rather not be mean, my kharma can't handle it at the moment.

Leah said...

Hi Meander!

Just to clarify: What I meant was, I really, really, really dislike little Gwynnie.

Not because she has all those things -- about which I basically feel, "Hey, more power to ya, babe" -- but because she's such an absolute overprivileged snot about it.

But good on ya for not stooping to my low karmic level.

hmm... never really thought about hating Gwyneth. Though it's probably true that if she wasn't raised in Hollywood she'd be working at Target, I've never felt she was a snob about it. I'm not a super fan of hers, but it seems to me that she is pretty down-to-earth and low-key about her fame. Plus, she values family, and manages to protect her own from the celebrity craziness, which is uncommon in Hollywood with people like Britney and Brangelina around. So I suppose I'll go against the norm and say that I am pro-Gwyneth.

hate her in a jealous way? Naw.

Sure, they are fortunate, and have very beautiful things around them.

But these people are often weird and out of left field if you really got the chance to know them.

katiedid said...

Why can't you all just leave poor Gwyneth alone?!!(sob, sob) All she's done is be perfect and she works so hard! (sob sniffle) So you better just leave her alone!!! Right now! ( anguished sobbing) I MEAN IT!(Hysterical wailing)

the House of Beauty and Culture said...

I don't know you, but I think I love you!

Mandy Lou said...

How could you not hate her?! Fab home, career, hubby - it's insane. Though her choice of names for her kids is a bit off.

lindsey said...

me:

1) ambivalent about GP. probably would rather spend my hate on mel gibson.

2) daily checker of the blog. you're in the firefox bookmark folder "design blogs" that gets opened daily M-F with my morning cuppa tea at the office. but i rarely say anything because i rarely have anything of value to contribute. but just because we lurkers don't have anything knowledgeable to add, doesn't mean we're not listening and admiring!

Hey, if Americans are all so very stupid (her words) why is she living in the Hamptons?

QP not worth my time -
your site DEFINITELY worth my time ... I love it and look forward to accessing it as often as possible (I try to visit every day.)

Please keep up the good work; visiting you (your site) makes my day.

Are you seriously asking me to re-think giving Gwyneth as my answer to the "if you could be anyone in the world, who would it be?" question?

I'm not ready for that... I was just checking out some cool design stuff...

I thought she was great... have I missed something?

becky said...

I have to say, I love GP, but hasn't she looked very odd in magazines lately? I did not even recognize her in W, and she looked all plastic and weird in this one as well. The house was rather boring, and I felt like they did not show much of it.

H&G is pretty pathetic for going for the celeb draw. It's not their thing. I know it sells way more magazines, but I'm starting to get that ick factor that the SYlvester Stallone AD cover gave me (I have not picked up an AD since!)

OK, I'm really, seriously done thinking about Gwynnie now.
