Hollyweirdo Gwyneth Paltrow labeled an “extortionist” after her $5,700-per-head UK wellness summit

In my opinion, if you’re going to pay any kind of money to listen to anything Gwyneth Paltrow has to say, well, you get what you deserve.

From Daily Mail: Gwyneth Paltrow is under fire from attendees at her $5,700-a-head ‘In Goop Health’ wellness summit who say the event was nothing more than a two-day advertisement for the lifestyle brand.

The star-studded summit in at Hammersmith’s Re:Centre in London was billed as ‘a mind-body-soul reset’ where guests would hear health wisdom straight from Paltrow, including tips about ‘hydrating mindfully’ in a sound bath, ‘channeling God’ through creativity with your hands and a workout with her trainer Tracy Anderson.

However, some attendees have complained that the useful information and experiences were drowned out by relentless promos that extended beyond the designated Goop store.

The actress herself, known as GP in the Goop community, reportedly made very few appearances at the summit, and when she was there she was hidden behind a wall of security.

Paltrow hosted one seminar in which she offered helpful tips such as ‘creativity with your hands is like channeling God,’ how to ‘hydrate mindfully’ along with a sound bath, and a workout with her trainer Tracy Anderson.

‘Gwyneth acts like she’s a health goddess, but actually she’s a pretentious, greedy extortionist,’ a source told Page Six.

‘She had a ton of security . . . She was unapproachable. She did the minimum — a few fireside chats with Twiggy and Penelope Cruz, then she put on her Birkenstocks and snuck out . . . I was a huge fan of Gwyneth; now I feel like I have lost my faith in God.’

A Summit Pass for the main Saturday event cost £1,000 ($1,259) and a Wellness Weekender Package went for an eye-watering £2,500 to £4,500 ($3,148 to $5,667).

Some attendees who took organizers’ advice and booked their rooms at the luxe Kimpton Fitzroy London Hotel through the Goop website for $1,300 for two nights later learned that they could have nabbed a room for as low as $250 if they booked elsewhere. The gluten free breakfast provided in rooms booked through Goop did little to make up for the perceived price discrepancy.

One guest told Page Six that a prominent British guest texted fellow attendees saying: ‘GP is a f***ing extortionist.’

Goop has maintained that the true value of the weekend exceeded $8,000 considering the freebies, including golden facials, ‘far-infrared gemstone therapy’ and health panels with experts unaffiliated with the brand.

British modeling icon Twiggy and actress Penelope Cruz joined the actress for a candid chat about Goop onstage.

Paltrow told spectators that the day was about creating ‘a new version of yourself’ before adding that change was possible in every human being.

A rep said of the event: ‘In addition to walking around the summit, [Paltrow] also hosted an intimate workout class with Tracy, followed by a panel, where she and Tracy answered attendee questions in an honest, casual setting. We have not received negative feedback. [It] was more along the lines of: “Thanks for an amazing weekend!”‘

Previous Goop summits in 2017 and 2018 were held in Los Angeles, and this was the first year it came to the United Kingdom.

Goop was launched in 2008 as a weekly newsletter crafted in Gwyneth’s kitchen, offering fans lifestyle recommendations, health-centric recipes, shopping discoveries, health products and fitness tips.

More than 10 years later, the company has grown into a massive empire worth a staggering $250million.

Perpetual victimhood: Hollyweird actress Jessica Alba stopped eating so she wouldn’t be “preyed upon” by men

Girl, you gotta stop sending mixed messages. As a strong female, shouldn’t you celebrate your ability to “enhance from within?”

And if you don’t want to be preyed upon….I suggest you leave Hollyweird, the avenue that has made you filthy rich. Typical liberal hypocrite…

From NY Post: Jessica Alba revealed she stopped eating so she wasn’t “preyed upon” by men in Hollywood.

The Honest Beauty founder said she was encouraged not to wear Pepe Jeans by her family as she was “voluptuous” and had a “booty.”

She said at Goop’s health summit: “I was meant to feel ashamed if I tempted men. Then I stopped eating a lot, when I became an actress. I made myself look more like a boy so I wouldn’t get as much attention.”

She added that she felt “preyed upon” by men when she was starting out, and added, “Nothing about being successful in this business is easy . . . You can’t be bitter.”

Alba is now happily married to Cash Warren and has three kids.

She famously dated now-disgraced “Bull” actor Michael Weatherly when she was 18 and he was 30.

Rose McGowan claims the Hollyweird #MeToo movement is BS, only done to make themselves feel better

Left eat left.

From Daily Mail: The actress who kick-started the exposure of Hollywood moguls who allegedly exploited positions of power to abuse women has branded #MeToo campaigners against sex attackers ‘losers’. 

Rose McGowan accused producer Harvey Weinstein of rape this time last year, sparking an avalanche of allegations in the entertainment industry and beyond.

As stars such as Kevin Spacey and Morgan Freeman were alleged to have assaulted or harassed performers, activists began using the hashtag to share their ordeals online.

But McGowan has slammed the movement as ‘bull****’ in today’s Sunday Times Magazine, which comes the day after Judge Brett Kavanaugh was sworn in as a Supreme Court justice in the face of historic sexual assault allegations he denies.

After year of stars such as Salma Hayek and Gwyneth Paltrow claiming to be victims of harassment, McGowan has said she understands why Donald Trump supporters hate Hollywood, whose apparent liberalism she says is fake.

On the subject of #MeToo, she said: ‘I just think they’re douchebags. They’re not champions. I just think they’re losers. I don’t like them.  How do I explain the fact that I got a GQ Man of the Year award and no women’s magazines and no women’s organisations have supported me?

‘It’s all bullshit. It’s a lie. It’s a Band-Aid lie to make them feel better. I know these people, I know they’re lily-livered, and as long as it looks good on the surface, to them, that’s enough.’

More from the story:

McGowan has also hit out at Meryl Streep, saying that it is ‘literally impossible’ the actress knew nothing of Weinstein’s sexual proclivities until last autumn. Streep has denied knowing about the producer’s alleged ehavior.

Though she says ‘women have a tight to be angry’, McGowan says #MeToo activists have ‘sold themselves a fiction’ rather than face up to the true nature of Hollywood. 

The article continues:

In Brave, McGowan argues that feminism hasn’t reached Hollywood, where 96 per cent of directors are male. She says the industry’s male gaze has little interest in women beyond them being ‘f***able’.

She told the magazine that even watching the movies in question implicates the viewer in the mistreatment.

This is far from the first time McGowan has spoken out on the matter, with the actress being very vocal in her refusal to align herself with either the #MeToo or Time’s Up movements.

Back in January, she hit out at the A-listers who wore black to the Golden Globes to protest the Harvey Weinstein sex scandal by calling the idea nothing but ‘Hollywood fakery.

She tweeted: ‘And not one of those fancy people wearing black to honor our rapes would have lifted a finger had it not been so. I have no time for Hollywood fakery.

She later branded Time’s Up leadership of being ‘fakes’ after they partnered with CAA.

McGowan has claimed that agents at CAA are ‘guilty of human trafficking’ for sending actresses, including Gwyneth Paltrow, to meet Harvey Weinstein in his hotel room. ‘Guess where they meet?’ she tweeted. ‘Who do you think is behind this “great” pr?

‘Why, it’s the company of pimps that sent so many into a the Monster’s Lair themselves. CAA. #TIMESUP fakes.’

McGowan also took issue with the fact that none of the women who first came forward were even asked to attend the Golden Globes ceremony.

Asia Argento stated that she had not been invited, while fellow sexual abuse and harassment accusers Corey Feldman and Rosanna Arquette said they too were ignored by the group.

‘Y was I ignored 2Nite? Do U C the hypocrisy here? Hollywood taking a stand in unity, when I wasn’t invited?’ Feldman asked Argento on Twitter, who replied ‘Don’t worry, I wasn’t invited either.’

She later added: ‘Not only I wasn’t invited to the #GoldenGlobes: nobody asked my opinion about #TIMESUP or to sign the letter. I support @TIMESUPNOW even though I was excluded from it. Guess I am not POWERFUL or HOLLYWOOD enough. Proud to work behind the scenes.’

Arquette, who accused Weinstein of sexual misconduct, also tweeted ‘We weren’t invited. Annabella [Sciorra], Daryl [Hannah], Mira [Sorvino] … none of us were.’
