You know, a star on the Hollywood “Walk of Fame” used to MEAN something, but now anyone can get one, I guess. (Also just kidding, it never used to mean anything.) From the HollywoodReporter:
Joined by Country Strong co-star Tim McGraw, director Shana Feste, and Faith Hill, Gwyneth Paltrow received the 2,427th star on the Walk of Fame on Monday in Hollywood.
In Country Strong, Paltrow plays down-on-her-luck country singer Kelly Canter, while McGraw plays her husband/manager.
During the ceremony, McGraw told the crowd that Paltrow “sings beautifully” and that she “Inspires goodness and that’s the best kind of friend to have.”
After being asked about how she would celebrate if Country Strong was nominated for a Golden Globe, Paltrow joked, “With a joint, hanging out with my girlfriends, I don’t know, I don’t expect anything from that.”
“With a joint, hanging out with my girlfriends. Is that what normal people do? I want to sound fun and normal. Do I? Oh, please tell me I sound fun and normal! Yup, me and my girlfriends are just going to put a joint on fire and we’re going to smoke it all up hahahahhahah. I don’t know, I don’t expect anything from that, and what would be the point? I live in a castle. By the way if you EVER need suggestions for a mid-century coat rack, call my assistant and have her guide you through the process of signing up for the lifestyle newsletter that my ghostwriter writes. We’ve actually got a whole issue on mid-century coat racks coming up.”
I liked this better when it was Hugh Jackman getting his handprints in front of Grauman’s Chinese theater on the eve of Wolverine Origins Strong. At least he just peed himself and kept his mouth shut.
