Most Annoying Celebrity Rag

You know how some TV show plot lines are ‘ripped from the headlines?’ I’ve decided People magazine rips theirs from any handy movie premiere calendar.

Easier than workin.’

people gwynethTake their latest World’s Most Beautiful Woman issue featuring Gwyneth Paltrow.

Gwyneth is lovely — I’ll give you that.  But the most beautiful woman in the world?  Of all the choices in Hollywood and around the globe?

In the words of Jerry Seinfeld — speaking to his young son outside my brownstone one Saturday afternoon —

“Probably not.”

But it is far simpler — isn’t it People editorial staff — to crown Ms. Paltrow?   She has Iron Man 3 coming out in a theatre near you…plus, your rival Star magazine just named her Most Hated Celebrity (which is probably more accurate).

Your advertisers are happy!  Moms her age are happy!  And Star has been put in its place.

Who cares if it isn’t true?

  1. I agree, although count me as one of those happy to see someone older than 25 crowned “most beautiful”. My favorite part of this post, though, is Jerry Seinfeld. Wildly jealous that you live near him! I would so be stalking him.

    • He lives one block from me, and in almost five years I have only seen him that one time. Of course, he walked directly behind me AND spoke to his child about my dog. So it was a big score. (Little boy asked if Rory would bite him. Jerry said, “Probably not.”)
