We’ve all been there, a few glasses of wine down and we get all self-righteous about something that’s been bothering us. Most of us wouldn’t be afforded access to video chat on a national TV show to get things off our chest… But Gwyneth can! And you know what, she did too.

Froom her London kitchen, dressed in her pyjamas and waving a half-drink glass of wine around, she Skyped into Rachael Ray’s cookery show to defend herself against recent accusations that celebrity chefs (her included) have little or nothing to do with their cook books.
Ghosted, but still pure Gwynnie, she says
Gwyneth wasn’t one of those directly accused in the New York Timesof relying entirely on an other food writer to conceive, develop, write and test her recipes (though that was one of the accusations levelled at the celeb cook book market in general). But she was mentioned as someone who had a lot of help writing hers, and her picture was used on the story – and on all the subsequent coverage when other media organisations picked up the story. Guilty by association then.
So naturally Gwyneth, who swears blind she came up with all the recipes herself from her very London kitchen, was outraged – and called Rachael to tell her so. Here’s the vid – it makes us want to be Gwynnie’s pal… We’re with you, Gwyneth!
All American girl: Gwyneth Paltrow models for Coach
Since Grace Kelly, there has been no better All American Girl than Gwyneth Paltrow.
So it comes as no surprise the Goop guru has been chosen to front another campaign for Coach.
Shot by Peter Lindbergh in New York, the images capture Gwyneth modelling the U.S brand’s handbags and appearing effortlessly cool – a look that comes quite naturally to Gwyn, we assume.
Coach’s senior vice president Jason Weisenfeld said: ‘Our Spring 2012 collection is all about the enduring spirit and style of New York City so who better to represent that than Gwyneth. As a brilliantly talented actress, innovative businesswoman, global style icon and dedicated mother, she really has it all.’
