Move over LC and Heidi. Looks like frenemies of the past are resurfacing. Gwyneth Paltrow, in a recent Goop newsletter, revealed that a former friend-turned-foe was once “hell-bent” on taking her down.
Although she kept her cool, Paltrow said she was delighted in seeing her frenemy face humiliation. Who do you think was the “venomous and dangerous” person out to get Paltrow?
In 1998 Lopez, who was engaged to Paltrow’s ex, Ben Affleck, told a magazine she couldn’t recall any of Paltrow’s movies. In a later interview, Paltrow’s comments about marriage – “I don’t want to be married for six months and then say ‘Oh well, never mind, on to number two’ ” – were seen as a jab back at Lopez.
Ryder and Paltrow were BFFs, as the two starlets dated Affleck and Matt Damon. But the friendship soured when it was rumored Paltrow snatched the Shakespeare in Love role that won her an Oscar.
Paltrow played unbidden marriage counselor to her former beau Brad Pitt and Aniston, suggesting in a Time magazine article that things could have been “be a lot easier” for the couple “had they not talked to the press about each other and everything to begin with.”
Could Paltrow be talking about her Spain On the Road Again buddy? Perhaps the pair are beefing over who’s really the better cook!
