Mortdecai comes out next Friday, which probably says a lot about the film that it’s being dumped in late January, because Gwyneth Paltrow is promoting it hard. So far this week she’s sang Broadway hip hop with Jimmy Fallon and visited the Howard Stern Show, where she made fast and loose with the blowjob talk. Girlfriend is pulling out all the stops, and seemingly wants to deflect from her polished, stuffy public image and let everyone know that — hey! — Gwyneth Paltrow is cool! This is like a Gwyneth 2.0 renaissance we’re experiencing.
So last night Gwyneth appeared on Watch What Happens Live alongside Amanda Peet and played along with host Andy Cohen in a segment called “I’m So Goopy!,” in which Cohen named “lowbrow” indulgences and Gwyneth had to answer whether or not she would partake in them. I’m not even kidding, I would pay 100 American dollars to watch Gwyneth house some Doritos Locos Tacos.
Paltrow later participated in a “Plead the Fifth” segment and didn’t even need to use a lifeline, answering which of her exes’ wives she’d rather get stuck in an elevator with. Although to be fair, she didn’t actually name the “frenemy” she famously and passive aggressively posted about on her Goop blog in 2009. I’m still firmly in the Winona Ryder camp.
