GQ Gwyneth Paltrow – Veteran performer Gwyneth Paltrow is the daughter of a veteran actress and a veteran director/producer. She is an Academy Award winner and she is married to a famous rocker, Chris Martin of Coldplay.
However, she was named among the 25 least influential people for 2011 by GQ.
This, despite her full year of amazing contributions. She was a role model to lots of kids, many of them who may have otherwise felt isolated through bullying, when she appeared on Glee as a motivational teacher. She made learning fun on TV and that carried through in life.
She appeared on award shows far and wide to sing the Cee-Lo Green anthem Forget You.
And she even published a cookbook while raising her kids with Chris Martin.
But, still, Gwyneth Paltrow has the dubious distinction of being one of 25 least influential people of 2011, or so says the men’s magazine.
Others who have not been considered to be of influence include Hank Williams Jr., Paul Reiser, Steve Williams, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Princess Beatrice, Tina Brown, and entertainers Pitbull and Harrison Ford. Oh, and then there also rapture prognosticator Harold Camping who, once again predicted the end of the world, twice, in 2011, both in May and then in October.
So how did Gwyneth Paltrow land on this list? For GQ, it’s all about the aforementioned cookbook which the magazine calls “awful” and which the magazine says contains “vapid” sentences. GQ also mentioned one particular Paltrow performance in a not so nice sort of way by ending their review of this so-called least influential person by saying, “Is it any wonder we all loved watching her die in Contagion?”
