Stumbling through the tumblr yesterday, I came across this article... http://www.naughtybutnicerob.com/gwyneth-paltrow-refuses-to-talk-to-media-that-says-anything-negative-about-her/ ...which made me smile. I can just see her going, I ain't talkin' to you no morez! Meanie!
When I developed a simulation of her personality in my mind based upon movie roles and interviews, I didn't just keep to words I wanted to hear. I also considered the impression garnered from her by her detractors. I tried to fit all the variables together to discover what kind of person would receive such varied reviews, rather than just dismiss the nay-sayers out of hand.
Of course, there's gonna be some haters, but I have developed, mostly unconsciously, a personality simulation which I feel is Gwyneth - of course, I'm not going to ask her any time soon.
I think she is a self-centered elitist, but not intentionally or through malice - and that's about as close as I'm going to come saying anything negative about her. Mostly she's just sweet and adorable.
