Environmentalist Gwyneth Paltrow drives 10 seconds to restaurant

By Alexandra Heilbron on April 19, 2012 | 15 Comments

While other celebrities such as Orlando Bloom and his wife Miranda Kerr, Jane Fonda, 74, and Amy Smart walked from a party at Stella McCartney’s Hollywood boutique to Madeo restaurant four doors away, Gwyneth Paltrow and her husband Chris Martin were driven — a trip that took 10 seconds. A source told the New York Post: “It’s a short walk. Also at the dinner was Gwyneth [who has starred in green public-service announcements] with husband Chris Martin — except they left the party in a gas-guzzling Town Car, were chauffeured a few feet and got out at the restaurant that was pretty much next door to the party.” When the Daily Mail online contacted Chris’ representative Dave Holmes for an explanation, he barked: “Get a life.” In the past, Gwyneth has actively supported the environmental group Act Green and the League of Conservation Voters – a non profit organization that strives to turn environmental values into U.S. national priorities, as well as the Environmental Media Association.

In a recent blog post on her “goop” website, Paltrow wrote: “Going green is no longer just the ideology of left-wing hippies. Nor is it a trend. We are living in exciting times. We are confronted with the challenge of sustaining our food, our water and our environment. We are changing things.” Underneath the post is a link to buy the book “Worldchanging: A Users Guide for the 21st Century,” with the description: “This book is the essential guide to creating sustainable solutions for today’s problems. Their proactive suggestions inspire you to change your behavior and be more conscious of the choices you are making and their impact on the earth.” [poll id=”366″]

    I knew she’s fake so is Chris Martin. That’s why I will never go to a Coldplay concert again in my life time!

    I’ve taken a taxi across the street to a club so I can sympathize.

    Tribute, you suck. Gwyneth has no excuse. TEN SECONDS?!?!?!Are you kidding me!?!?!? She has lost a whole pile of credibility now. How can she possibly justify this?

    if a 74 year old Jane Fonda could walk no execuse for this at all I am sure security was around to keep back the fans and cameras

    Maybe she just had a long day and was really tired. Even environmentalists get lazy once in a while. I don’t think people need to hate on her this much for it

  6. GwynethSucks • April 19, 2012 @ 11:58 AM

    Honestly Gwyneth Paltrow has always been a huge hypocrite. Everything about her is fake.

    I do like Chris Martin but I’m kind of disappointed.

  7. TheTruth • April 19, 2012 @ 4:25 PM

    Good for her, I wouldn’t want my stalker getting a chance to harass me on the street knowing about such a high profile party and all.

    You gossip loving windbags are pathetic. “Tribute celebrity news” is Z grade trash. Anyone who believes the garbage written here has the IQ of a turnip.

  9. Callie • April 19, 2012 @ 8:02 PM

    hey bilbo if we are pathetic why are you reading this article.

    I am so disappointed in her and even if she has a stalker she probably has security. even without being an environmentalist it was 10 sec. I’ve walked 2 hours to get where I want to.

  10. My opinion • April 19, 2012 @ 9:14 PM

    The car ride may have taken 10 seconds but walking would have taken 10-15 mins with a whole bunch of photographers and reports hounding camera’s in their faces and asking embarrassing questions or making stupid comments. So that short walk will be hell for her.

  11. Tayderhead • April 20, 2012 @ 3:00 AM

    So what. Someone who names their kid Apple may very well be a vegetable.

  12. Jan • April 20, 2012 @ 1:48 PM

    tayderhead you are right! Her son is lucky she did not name him Onion.

  13. So What? • April 21, 2012 @ 11:48 AM

    LOL! Who cares? Maybe she was tired, looked like crap and didn’t want to be bombarded by the paps, hurt her leg/foot, etc. etc. etc.–or simply didn’t feel like it. It’s HER perogative. We have no idea what the reason was, so let her be.

  14. Sylvia • April 23, 2012 @ 11:43 AM

    I hope she is dropped from all environmental ads. She is such a hypocrit.

  15. Rita • May 29, 2012 @ 7:10 AM

    @My opinion Even though I voted that she was a hypocrite; I Wouldn’t blame her if what you said was True… I read an article that she wears or wore fur and that is not Truly an enviro! Except for the rare occurance or emergency of needing to wear fur, then she shouldn’t.
