Newsflash: Nobody Likes Gwyneth Paltrow

By: Celebuzz / August 19, 2009

In “file under ‘no duh'” news, the British edition of OK! Magazine reports that Gwyneth Paltrow isn’t making any friends on the set of Iron Man 2

According to a source, Paltrow, who plays Pepper Potts in the superhero film,  “is extremely cool at work. She’s just a step above professional, too snobby. Gwyneth is not friendly to anyone, and tends to make people feel awkward and uncomfortable.”

The mole adds that Paltrow’s aloof attitude also extends to her co-stars—in particular, Scarlett Johansson, who plays Black Widow in the film.

“She wasn’t outright rude to Scarlett, she just didn’t ever speak to her,” the mole adds. “Gwyneth went out of her way to avoid Scarlett, and they had zero contact, at Gwyneth’s choosing.”

For her part, Johansson has denied that Paltrow has been icy toward her, blaming the lack of interaction on the fact that Paltrow “has a wonderful family whom she spends a lot of time with.” 

And, to be fair, it’s hard to imagine that a woman who’s so eager to share her vast reservoirs of wisdom would be so stingy in the camaraderie department.

Hmm. This is a real puzzler.
