Believe It Or Not


According to Gwyneth Paltrow she cooks all of her family's meals. Well if she does, they are probably wasting away to nothing also. In an interview with People, Gwyneth says, I cook all the meals for my house. I really love to cook. Breads and pizzas is what I'm cooking and we all love it. We have a wood-burning pizza oven in our garden. Right now the weather is nice in London, so I'm using that oven a lot. You can cook anything in there. It's amazing."

She seems fascinated that there are actually devices which cook food for you. Apparently her family though is limited on what they can enjoy each day to either bread or pizza. Just think, every morning you wake up and you have to choose between bread or pizza. This is just the biggest bunch of crap. I think what she was trying to say is that she doesn't have a personal chef. She may not have someone who has been hired with the specific role of chef for the family, but there is no way I will ever believe that she is sitting at home each day making three meals a day for her kids. It just isn't happening. Of course if their nanny is cooking the meals for the kids then that person is of course a nanny and not a chef and so that doesn't count. Do I believe Gwyneth has cooked meals for her family? Yep, and I even bet she made some bread and some pizza and probably served them both the same day. My guess is that on the first day they got the oven she cooked, and then maybe like one other time.

I bet if you spent one week with that family, that out of 21 possible meals, Gwyneth, might, might cook one of the meals. Actually that is probably being too generous. I say once every month. Now, Chris I could see cooking for the kids and taking care of them, but her? Not a chance in this world.

My dad used to cook for us on the nights my mom worked late, and one time he put the frozen pizza in upside-down. How sad is that? :) He could make a mean mashed potato, though.

I don't like her. She looks snotty. I don't get the feeling that she is at home that often like she wants to make it look.

Molly said...

i've seen her cook on television before and she sure looked she knew what she was doing.

enty, are you running out of real things to bitch about when it comes to people you hate for no reason? sure seems that way.

I'm guessing she probably does cook a fair amount. I've seen her on tv cooking several times on Oprah and other shows like that, plus she did a series of cooking shows with Mario Batali and they are setting to film another in Italy soon, too. Like 12 more episodes or something. Besides, it's not like she doesn't have plenty of time on her hands. And cooking, for some, is actually relaxing and fun. It is for me, anyhow, and I work full time (for lawyers, even, Enty! lol)

mooshki!!! lmao!!! a for effort and a big f for execution. at least he tried, i give him props for that!

Emma31 said...

why do people hate her so much? I don't get it. I watched her show with Mario B. and she's didn't seem full herself at all. She seems very normal and almost shy. She only stayed in spain for like 2days and then went home to be with her kids. I like her!

Mooshki said...

Emma, I think she may just suffer from a bit of foot-in-mouth disease. She often sounds condescending.

Mama Theresa said...

i get the vibe that she does cook for her family. probably not all the meals. Heck, I'm a SAHM and I dont cook all my meals.

She seems reserved and a bit on the quiet side that often comes across as uppity.

Plus she suffers from celebrititis where she believe people actual came about her political and moral views. we dont. really.

kimi said...

When she was on Oprah she claimed she worked out 2 hours everyday. I know shes thin but that is a lot of working out. Oh and she also said while on her road trip to Spain she flew home every two days to be with her kids.She basically said she was wonderwomen. She did say she was depressed after having her second child but that is almost cool now to suffer from depression in hollywood.

Emma31 said...

Mooshki, yeah i can see where she does that.

I know some peeps who have had to deal with GP in the past. She's very high maintenance. I don't believe that she cooks every meal either.

Grace said...

I loved how she said on Oprah how Madonna changed her molecules. That is such a typical zany-brained actress thing to say.

Anyway, I have no doubt she cooks, but who cooked while she was away in Spain? Or filming Hancock, or any other movie where she is on location?

I also thought it funny that she said she was in the middle of adapting her dad's pancake recipe to be healthier. How long does that take? In the meantime, no pancakes at Gwynnie's house!

Grace said...

Oops -- not Hancock -- Ironman!!

Molly said...

grace, it can actually take a while to adapt a recipe into a healthier version. you have to try it with various replacements which may not work. it can change the texture, taste and mouth feel of the food, or just not bake or cook properly. can you tell i've done this before??!!

bionic bunny! said...

why not just splurge once in a while and have dad's pancakes?
geez.

Gwyneth cooks every meal.

Jennifer Lopez doesn't have a nanny.

I'm wearing new socks.
