Gwyneth Paltrow is under fire for some statements she made regarding the intelligence of Americans. Paltrow a 34-year-old Oscar winner, who has lived in London since marrying Coldplay frontman Chris Martin three years ago, said: 'I love the English lifestyle; it's not as capitalistic as America.
'People don’t talk about work and money, they talk about interesting things at dinner. I like living here because I don't fit into the bad side of American psychology. The British are much more intelligent and civilized than the Americans.'
That hasn't sit well with many Americans, many who wrote in to tell the actress to stay in Europe once Cathy Beers pointed out her comments over the weekend. The Daily Mail UK points out that as her comments were reported in here in the US, Americans called chat shows and radio phone-ins to express their disgust at her 'betrayal'.
'If she feels that way we are far better off without her,' said one commentator. A disgruntled caller added: 'She sounds like she thinks she’s better than us. We are better off if she stays across the Atlantic. We don't need her here.'
That's been the sentiment here as well. Cathy Beers also pointed out that this is not a first for Gwyneth. In February of this year she basically said the same thing, writes Beers. She said at the time: "I love living in the UK! Brits are far more intelligent and civilized than Americans. "I love the fact that you can hail a taxi and just pick up the pram and put it in the back of the cab without collapsing it.
She then added, "I really don't think I'm stuck-up. And neither do the people who know me. "I can be picky and super-critical about things, and I have certain stand.
Paltrow isn't making any new fans in America with this type of talk.
