Gwyneth Paltrow has put Kim Kardashian on blast about ‘breaking the internet.’ The actress is claiming she’s the one who first broke the internet with her infamous split announcement from Chris Martin. In this a not so subtle diss at Kim’s nude photo spread?
You have to appreciate Gwyneth Paltrow‘s stunning amount of self confidence, as the actress and entrepreneur is claiming she was the first to “break the internet” with her “conscious uncoupling” from Chris Martin, 38, in March 2014. At the Fast Company Innovation Festival in NYC Nov. 10, the 43-year-old GOOP founder claims that when she dropped the unique terminology in her separation announcement, “we like broke the f***ing internet.” So much for Kim Kardashian‘s full frontal nude shot in Paper magazine where she actively – and successfully – went after that goal!
“When I was announcing my husband and I were separating and we were trying to follow this specific way of doing it, and the philosophy is conscious uncoupling and we like broke the f***ing internet,” Gwyneth revealed during The Goop Q&A with Katie Couric and Lisa Gersh. “It’s such a hard time personally and then you have this added layer of all this criticism.” Oooh, sounds like someone is a little jealous of the mounds of attention 35-year-old Kim got when she first revealed her bare behind then then went full frontal for Paper in Nov. 2014, nine months after Gwynnie’s unique announcement!
True, before her announcement we’d never heard the term “conscious uncoupling” in a celebrity split announcement. But despite the many jokes being made over the somewhat haughty term, it’s now become part of the verbal lexicon thanks to the Mortdecai star. So maybe Gwyneth got the last laugh after all.
But even Gwyneth knows that her unusual term caused a lot of derision, she says that “conscious uncoupling” wasn’t something she came up with, she was just the first celebrity to put it out there. “Even though we did it in an inelegant way – because it was such an emotional time and we didn’t give it as much context and didn’t explain (that it) wasn’t something that I was inventing – it was already an established theory,” she explained.
HollywoodLifers, who do you think did a bigger job of breaking the internet, Kim or Gwyneth?
