    Default Gwyneth Paltrow Says, "My Dad Said That I was an A##HOLE"

    FromFishstick's latest self-adoring interview in BAZAAR:
    Honestyis the best policy, right?GwynethPaltrow revealedin a new interview with Harper'sBazaar thather late father, Bruce Paltrow, told her she was becoming an"a--hole" because of her fame.
    "Iremember when I was maybe 27 years old and kind of at the height ofmy movie stardom — it was around the time of [my 1999 Best ActressOscar for Shakespeare in Love] and this and that," theactress, 44, recounted in the magazine's November cover story. "Ithink I was very much believing my own hype, which how could younot?" Gwyneth continued, "I was sitting with my dad,feeling great about my life and everything that was happening, and hewas like, 'You know, you're getting a little weird ... You're kind ofan a--hole.' And I was like, 'What the hell?' I was totallydevastated." Looking back nearly two decades later,the Iron Man 3 actress says she took her dad's harsh adviceto heart and changed her actions.
    "Itturned out to be basically the best thing that ever happened to me,"she told Harper'sBazaar."It's the difference between someone who loves you more thananything in the world giving you criticism and getting it from somebitter stranger on the internet. What my dad said to me was the kindof criticism where I was like, 'Oh, my God, I'm on the wrong track.'I'm so grateful for him doing that. He was such a no-nonsense guy inthat sense." Bruce, who was married to actress BlytheDanner andwas also dad of screenwriter JakePaltrow,died from complications of oral cancer and pneumonia in October 2002.Gwyneth's ex-husband, Coldplay frontman ChrisMartin,dedicated his band's 2005 hit "Fix You" to her as a tributeto her late father.

    Gwynethalso opened up about her children, daughter Apple, 12, and sonMoses, 10, in the November issue of Harper's Bazaar, discussingthe struggles they sometimes face living in their parents' spotlight."I've borne these two kids into a particularly strangecircumstance," she explained. "They are going to have tofend off a lot and protect themselves from a lot of projections andprejudice about who they are, coming from the family that they comefrom."

    Oh MY GOD, do we need Daddy now...

    The pics from that Harpers shoot make her look like Melania Pussy-Bow Trump.

    It's 8:19 pm CST and GP is still an asshole. Also, not sure who that is supposed to be from the nose down, but it doesn't look like a-hole.

    He called it years ago and she wasn't that insufferable back then.

    Gwynnie is quickly turning into Leann Rimes, who also can't open her mouth without reminding people that she won an award two decades ago.

    He should have left a tape recording of his voice calling her an asshole, and Blythe would be able to play it whenever Fishsticks got too full of herself.
