Why We're Annoyed at Gwyneth Paltrow

When Gwyneth Paltrow announced that she and hubby Chris Martin were doing the whole "conscious uncoupling" thing, we were super bummed right along with the rest of the world.

We did the shock and awe thing for a couple of hours and then we kind of wanted to give each of them a high-five because they're kind of setting a good example as far as separations go--not that separations are the goal, but if it must happen, they're showing us how two mature adults should handle it.

Anyway, fast-forward to today. Since people are basically treating their "conscious uncoupling" as a death, there was some serious investigative journalism done to try to dig up Gwyneth's "last words" before they separated. Kind of like when someone dies and everyone wants to see their last interview, except that nobody died and...yeah, you get it.

Like all of the good Goop lovers in the world, we wanted to see what she said because as ridiculous as it is, we were kind of curious. As it turns out, she didn't really hint that there was trouble in paradise, but she did try to get everyone to feel sorry for her in a way that totally dissed us and now we are kind of annoyed at her.

Regarding her acting career (you know, the one where she works for a few weeks at a time and makes millions of dollars), Gwyneth told E! News, "I think it's different when you have an office job, because it's routine and, you know, you can do all the stuff in the morning and then you come home in the evening."

Um, first of all, WHO do you know that actually works 9-5 in the corporate world. Try 6-8...if you're lucky. "When you're shooting a movie, they're like, 'We need you to go to Wisconsin for two weeks,' and then you work 14 hours a day and that part of it is very difficult," she concluded.

Oh, that's rough...and what if you don't have a vacation home in Wisconsin? Then you just have to stay in a four-star hotel and eat whatever the chef has prepared for you that day? The horror!

Sorry, Gwyneth, but we can't really see a lot of people getting on board with that one. For anyone who has ever sat in a cubicle and cursed the clock as the minutes crawl by...to make about 1/100th of what you make in two weeks, we'd trade places with you any day. In Wisconsin, in Arkansas, in hell, wherever...
