Shakespeare in Love star Gywneth Paltrow has decided that dinner party chatter is much more entertaining in her adopted England than in the redneck-infested US of A. She was recently quoted as saying “I like living here because I don’t fit into the bad side of American psychology. The British are much more intelligent and civilised than the Americans.” So according to the Daily Mail, she even said the word “civilised” with an ‘s’ – the ultimate betrayal.
Careful with that golden award statue: it might be connected to capitalism!
The question of specifically why she likes London so much better than L.A. (wouldn’t anyone?), however, is of most interest. She really goes for Brit-land because “…it’s not as capitalistic as America.” For someone so disdainful of the American capitalistic system, she sure has managed to acclimate herself to the process.
