Academy Award-winning actress Gwyneth Paltrow skipped the Met Gala on Monday at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art for the second year in a row. Instead, the Goop founder spent the evening with her daughter Apple.
“This was the red carpet in my house last night,” the consciously uncoupled actress, 42, Instagrammed an image of her nearly 11-year-old daughter striking a pose in a blue onesie accessorized with a pair of monster feet slippers.
The Iron Man star has verbalized about her strong feelings about the Met Ball. After telling USA Today that she would never attend the event again, she then elaborated on Kiis 1065.
“Do you want me to be honest? It sucked!,” Paltrow said of the posh NYC event. “You always think, ‘Oh my god, it’s gonna be so glamorous and amazing and you’re going to see all these people,’ and then you get there and it’s so hot and it’s so crowded and everyone’s pushing you.”
Mom-to-be Zooey Deschanel covers the June issue of Cosmopolitanand opens up about expecting her first child with fiancé Jacob Pechenik this summer, women in television, and healthy body image.
On not posing for a “body after baby” photo shoot: “Haven’t we all seen those pictures of a sexy new mom in a bikini after one month? I will not be that person. I’ve always gone my own course and never been someone who had the need to be super skinny. I like a healthy look. I don’t buy into that skinny-is-better mentality. I just eat healthy and work out and don’t worry about my weight too much. Actresses aren’t models, and most of them never wanted to be.”
On women in television: “It’s a good time for women on TV. We can be funny in our own way … and funny doesn’t mean just one thing. Funny isn’t just one-liners. It’s big personalities and individualism.”
On the #AskHerMore Twitter campaign during awards season: “I’m all for people asking actresses more intelligent questions. Just because you’re wearing a nice dress doesn’t mean you don’t have any ideas. It’s a shame to reduce smart, talented women to clothes models. But you can be a feminist and femme. I don’t see how those things contradict each other.”
