Gwyneth Paltrow’s ‘frenemy’

Gwyneth Paltrow took to her website ‘GOOP’ to write about a so-called friend from her past and the ‘deep relief and happiness’ she felt on hearing of the aforementioned persons downfall.

The actress wrote: “Back in the day, I had a “frenemy” who, as it turned out, was pretty hell-bent on taking me down. This person really did what they could to hurt me. I was deeply upset, I was angry, I was all of those things you feel when you find out that someone you thought you liked was venomous and dangerous. I restrained myself from fighting back. I tried to take the high road.

“But one day I heard that something unfortunate and humiliating had happened to this person. And my reaction was deep relief and…happiness. There went the high road.”

It has been speculated that the comments are aimed at fellow actress Winona Ryder, who was once a close friend and flatmate of the ‘Emma’ star.

They reportedly fell out after Paltrow won an Oscar as best actress for her role alongside Ben Affleck in Shakespeare In Love in 1998 – a part Ryder is believed to have been offered first.

Ryder’s own career suffered a setback when she was convicted of shoplifting in Los Angeles.

Gwyneth Paltrow does seem to be a bad judge of character – she is best friends with Madonna after all.
