Gwyneth Paltrow thinks plastic surgery, Botox are “gimmicks” for peasants


I don’t know if Gwyneth Paltrow really said any of this stuff – this whole interview comes from a New Zealand media outlet’s translation of an interview with Gwyneth in the German edition of OK! Magazine. So, if OK! Germany got an interview with Goop, and if the translation is right, and if this whole thing wasn’t made up entirely, then Gwyneth is made of goopy lies. According to this web of gossip, Gwyneth claims that she would never NEVER deign to do “gimmicky” (re: “peasanty”) forms of plastic surgery, and she “refuses” to do Botox (haha, LIES). But! Gwyneth is pro-boob job. Amazing, if it’s true:

Gwyneth Paltrow believes cosmetic surgery is “pure vanity”. The Hollywood actress is famed for her stunning natural looks and slender frame and is regularly praised for her elegant style.

Paltrow insists she wouldn’t use any “gimmicky” forms of surgery, but wouldn’t rule out having her breasts enhanced. The 38-year-old beauty has kids Apple and Moses and says without surgery, her breasts will never be what they were before pregnancy.

“Before I didn’t care about it. And I still refuse to use silicone, Botox or other of those gimmicks out of pure vanity. But a breast correction after breast feeding — why not? There’s actually nothing else to restore the original condition, isn’t there?” she laughed in an interview with the German edition of OK! magazine.

Paltrow is known for her intensive exercise regimes, including yoga. Although there aren’t always enough hours in the day to complete her thorough workout, she tries to fit in at least a few minutes a day.

“I don’t have time to do real yoga sessions that last over 60 minutes,” she said. “But I meditate each day for at least five minutes.”

Paltrow claimed her intensive yoga session “ruined” her body for a period of time. The exercise diminished her curves, and her physique looked “boxy”.

“Yes that was strange. I somehow lost my waist because of intense yoga training and became almost boxy,” she explained. “But with stretching and Pilates exercises I hit form again.”

I like how she makes it seem like she hasn’t already jacked her face (remember this?), and like she hasn’t already gotten her boobs “perked up” with some kind of procedure (remember this?). To be fair, I don’t think Gwyneth has gotten a facelift, and she hasn’t gotten her eyes done or anything. But the goopy bitch is hitting the ‘Tox on the regular, and I personally believe that she’s already gotten her boobs done. How gimmicky. How gauche. How peasanty. How GOOP.

    “Breast correction.

    Is that like having nasal surgery for a “deviated septum”, or botox to treat “migraines”?

    I don’t believe she did this interview, as she couldn’t have resisted putting in a plug for Tracy Anderson.

  2. gee says:

    Tell that to her old nose.

  3. Turtle Dove says:

    Kaiser, Goop has had an obvious nose job too.

    This woman is insufferable.

  4. Rita says:

    I think the confusion is do to the translation from German to English. In Germany, Botox is a type of Cheese-Whiz.

  5. lucy2 says:

    If that’s what she said, I find it hilarious that she complaining about stuff being done for “vanity”, when that’s ALL she talks about! She is really body-obsessed.

  6. Supa Bitch says:

    If this translation is true, I can’t stop laughing my ass off. I too think she is getting that “Nicole-frozen-in-time-Kidman” look to her face.

    And she has ALWAYS been boxy.

  7. Cecile says:

    You are just mean to Gwyneth. Is not funny anymore.

  8. UKHels says:

    she hasn’t aged in 15 years, that ain’t just good genes honey

  9. Tammy says:

    She has to be the most over exposed person on the planet. She tries desperately to sell herself as this cross between Martha Stewart and mother goose. But in the end, she most likely is very self-indulgent and narsacistic.

  10. Gwen says:

    I’m sooo tired of her!

  11. mln76 says:

    I think a lot of these obscure foreign tabs straight up make up quotes and don’t bother with ‘sources’ or ‘friends’ because they are pretty sure no one is going to notice. But Yeah Goopy still sucks.

  12. original kate says:

    boring, as always.

  13. BeckyR says:

    Maybe this why she & Madonna-donna-ding-dong had a falling out…I’m just sayin’.

  14. Str8Shooter says:

    Yawn. Oh, is that Goop AGAIN?

  15. Blu says:

    Goopy!! Self righteous pain in the ass….

  16. Birdix says:

    I think the boob job quotes are old-she said something like that after one or the other of her children were born. And she had a row of red welts around her eyes at the oscars that were clearly from botox.

  17. Mshuffleupagus says:

    Uh…girl….is your waist back?

  18. Rhiley says:

    Well her mom must be living in the streets because Blythe Danner, who I love from Will & Grace, has jacked her face from New York to Los Angeles. I can’t look at her anymore it is so bad (I wonder if Gwen Poo Poo went up to her mother and said, “What is this?” Shakes index finger around her mother’s face, and comments, “You look like a peasant. Why are you falling for the gimmicks, Mummy?”

  19. constance says:

    Botox? Believe it. Nose perfected? Obvious. Face lift? I think she had a bit of a pull. Not a major one, but it helped keep her short chin from looking bloated. She looks good for her age, but she lies about how she “Achieved it.” It’s all about liquid diets, enemas, and “meditating” at her surgeon’s office.

  20. Violet says:

    Gwyneth is quite the liar and hypocrite, considering she’s had a lot of cosmetic work done.

    That woman is absolutely insufferable. I feel bad for her little girl, who’ll probably grow up to be a neurotic mess as a result of trying to live up to her mother’s impossible standards.

  21. velourazure says:

    i don’t know who is more nausea-inducing gp or dead possum hair gosselin.

  22. jover says:

    Has she deposited any of these nuggets of wisdom on her many celebutard hollywood friends. Yes, she is insufferable.

  23. Diane says:

    LOL @Rita: Cheese-Whiz

  24. Hautie says:


    My goodness Gwennie is really crazy as hell. I don’t understand how her and Jennifer Lopez aren’t bff’s.

    Both are completely delusional about their bodies.

    Where as Lopez has a slamming body. She can’t dress it for shit. And constantly wears her clothes too short and too small. Thinking they fit her.

    Where as Gwyneth has never ever been a curvy girl. (And she has the worst posture and stooped shoulders.)

    Rarely have I seen a picture of her where she is standing up straight with her shoulders back.

    She walks around hunched over, looking like some emo kid.

    And for the record… in my complete bias opinion. Gwennie has always been homely as hell. And all the fake tits and botox… can not cure homely.

  25. Annaloo says:

    remote control on Gwyneth: click “OFF”

  26. Kat says:

    How did you raise such a snotty, self-entitled, smug, bitchy piece of work, Blythe? Just curious.

  27. Thea says:

    Move her up to the most hated list with Casey Anthony. They both get my panties in a notch. No wonder her husband cant stand her. She is the most condescending, two faced lying, pretentious bitch I have ever seen. I hope her kids grow up and shop at Walmart.

  28. Denise says:

    Another day of Goop random insanity.

  29. werty says:

    Maybe she can answer why she cant stop doing weird stuff with her lips in every damn pic..

  30. NinaGianvonni says:

    The higher you stand the further and harder you fall. If she really feels this way she should be careful,because she can quickly become one of those “peasants” she refers to often. Wealth is not promised for every. Many stars had it all and lost it.

  31. Mitch Buchanan Rocks says:

    I’d like to see Goopy and Chelsea Handler do a debate, they look so much alike but it would be so entertaining to see Chelsea take on the Goopster.

  32. moptop says:

    Goop: “Why, there’s nothing wrong with Wal-Mart! Some of my best friends own stock in it…”

  33. Beatrice says:

    Breast correction? It that the new term for a boob job? I guess that makes a face lift a face correction. The woman gets on my last nerve.

  34. helga says:

    Hautie, you’re using whereas wrong, and it’s one word.

    Also, I read the Botox thing as saying she wouldn’t do it for her own vanity reasons. Not that it’s only used for vanity.

  35. Meow Mix says:

    I just went to the goop site and filled out there survey. It is just as pretentious as the site itself. Hilarious.

  36. Annie says:


  37. Camille says:

    I buy that she said that, it sounds like her :roll: .

  38. Happy21 says:

    I can’t stand her. She says she put on like 30 pounds for Country Strong and she still looked too thin. I’m so tired of hearing her talk about bodies, her body and how people should be.

  39. Memphis says:

    Maybe I’m wrong and she did say all that, but I’m calling BS on that article, or at least the translation of it.

    ANYONE who believes she isn’t a fan of fillers, botox and other forms of “gimmicky peasantry” need only to look at her face to see the truth. I can’t imagine she is dumb enough to think we don’t know.

    But then again this is Gwyneth we are talking about so she may just think we are that stupid.

  40. mel jay says:

    GOOP with her head!!!!

  41. Rhiley says:

    In that 3rd pic she looks like lucious malfoy.

  42. blonde on the dock says:

    I find her beautiful. Guess I’m alone here.

  43. Incredulous says:

    Breast correction? So Goop has the wrong breasts? Why won’t she give them back?

  44. april says:

    I thougt she looked really unattractive until recenty. She had something done. I thought it was fillers.

  45. Phoenix says:

    “I hope her kids grow up and shop at Walmart.” Yep, Thea, and have cup-a-soups, too.

  46. bob says:

    It’s difficult not to be obsesses with your image, when the world is constantly passing judgement on it. It’s even more difficult to be obsessed with your image without coming off like your obsessed with it.

    Your body is your product when you make a living on film and your product has to be in peak shape or at least the shape it’s been marketed for from the point of “fame” – to whatever degree -It’s just good business.

    Kudos GP

  47. vicky says:

    She is defending the correction of breasts because she “corrected” hers, but she tries to rise above the Pamela Andersons by making the difference between plastic surgery and correction. BUT her brain is soooo small that she does not realize that:
    a) correcting the breast after breastfeeding is also an act of vanity (as it is to have plastic surgery to remove the wrinkles around the eyes and to restore that area as it was before age hits it).
    b) A surged breast is a surged breast. Does not matter why you do it Gwyneth, you are just like the pamelas, the
    heidi montags, the tara reids, and all those women you thing you are so superior to.

  48. Diane says:

    Poor insecure dolt. Probably spent her whole childhood shouting LOOK AT ME! LOOK AT ME! And nothing’s changed. Gwynnie, you made it in showbiz because your folks opened every single door. The Oscar was a fluke. You really have little talent. You have average intelligence at best, you’re not that good looking, your tastes are boring and your self-obsession and promotion is actually quite pathetic. I could almost feel sorry for you, but not quite.

  49. Mr Maggot says:

    Hahaha…if that interview really is true, then she must have lost something…first she says she refuse to use silicon etc to enlarge the breast – what kind of non-vain substance will she use instead, water ??? second she says she just want to “restore the original condition” – well, in that case she doesn’t need to do a heck since they wasn’t bigger before pregnancy anyway….

  50. Valerie Grossi says:

    She is an attractive woman. I don’t think she would achieve what she had achieved without her privileged family. I don’t like her as an actress. As for cosmetic surgery, she has had a lot done definitely. I am not an expert, but I can see just from the pictures that she has had rhinoplasty, veneers installed on her teeth, probably breast enlargement. Her eyes are not naturally blue, she is wearing blue lenses, and she is definitely not naturally blond. I don’t even know why she talks about “no cosmetic surgery”. It is very obvious she is not a natural beauty. She is only attracting more attention to what she has done to her body.
