Gwyneth Paltrow hates the way Brits say 'pasta,' hates eating onscreen and is repressing memories of playing a fat person in 'Shallow Hal'
Ready for another edition of GOOPy talk with Gwyneth Paltrow? In a new interview with The Guardian, Gwynnie opens up about things that lie on the spectrum of her dislikes somewhere between crack and canned cheese. First, she really hates the way her fellow countrymen say "pasta" -- and it has nothing to do with whether the noodles are organic, gluten-free and spelt.
"I've lived in England for 10 years and the accent is the most beautiful in the world, except for how you pronounce pasta as pass-ta instead of pah-sta," she says. "I'm sort of joking when I say this, but I really don't want my children speaking that way."
Speaking of terrible things, GOOPy also hates how ill she feels if she gets paid six figures an hour to eat food in a movie. "Eating while filming a scene is the worst thing, because you have to keep eating the same thing all day long," she explains. "You'll notice that most films with food the actors aren't actually eating, but I try consciously to eat to make it real, but most of the time I'll spit it out to avoid feeling sick."
Luckily, though, the sickness is merely physical, thanks to the human brain's handy habit of blocking out painful memories from the past ... like wearing a fat suit in 2001: "I'm sure there must have been eating scenes," she continues, "especially playing a 330lb character in 'Shallow Hal,' but I don't remember that film well, to be honest."
