well i'll let you make your own mind up, but some funny quotes from this interview:

http://film.guardian.co.uk/interview/interviewpages/0,6737,1695582,00.html

I ask if she and Martin are as dull as everyone imagines, and she winces and laughs: "There is this perception of us in this country, like, oh, they're quite boring. They do yoga and they stay home watching UK Gold." She is savvy enough to know that "boring" in this context refers to her husband's music and to her own adventures in macrobiotics. "I think we're happy. We're not looking for other things in life. We like our house. We like our kid. We like our friends." Paltrow sniffs. "I think it's sort of funny how you have to be doing coke off the ass of a stripper to be perceived as not boring these days."

I wonder if she drinks more when she's in the UK than she does in the US. From the corner, the PR blurts out, "I do." Paltrow looks bemused. "I'm not really a drinker. Like the last time I got drunk was on holiday in Spain three years ago."

Wow. That's a long time sober. What's that about? "I think it's gross. I really don't like drunk women; I think it is such a bad look. I think it's very inappropriate and I don't like it."

Doesn't she feel boring at parties? "No. I think they're the idiot people and I'm the normal person. But I don't really go to parties where ... I don't really have drunk friends. My friends are kind of adult; they have a drink. But they hold their liquor. I think it's incredibly embarrassing when people are drunk. It just looks so ridiculous. I find it very degrading. I think, ooh, you're really degrading yourself right now, to be this pissed out in public." She looks startled by the strength of her own reaction and, recovering, smiles blamelessly and sweeps out of the room.

My friend said something very similar the other day.
I wonder if she's turning into Gwyneth Paltrow.......
She's already blonde......

I read this article at lunchtime and found myself agreeing with her on the subject of drinking. More and more, I struggle to comprehend the drinking culture in this country. The behaviour it creates, the expense, the hangover........ For me, its almost a necessary evil of socialising.

:lol:

novacane, i'm with you, especially as i am a bad drunk sometimes, but i too can hardly imagine socialising without it (i could socialise with cocaine and soft drinks, but i'm not allowed the interesting bit of that combo anymore)

That could be taken out of context!

It is hard to go out for an evening in this country and not get totally smashed. For some reason whenever I'm abroad I manage to go out for an entire evening, drink the whole time but not get completely arseholed.

Waitress service slows you down, and the whole culture is more relaxed so you aren't always rushing to down your beer before the next round, probably has a lot to do with it.

That's bollocks. It's very easy to go out and not get smashed. Buy less alcohol than is required to get you smashed. :gotit:

Gwyneth sounds like a self righteous pranny. Her name should be Gwynedd anyway!

Pranny she may be, but you still would.

Whats wrong with getting drunk? Assuming you dont start a fight or be rude to someone else.
