Quotables: Gwyneth Paltrow Doesn't Understand Things Like Common Sense or Reality

"We're human beings and the sun is the sun - how can it be bad for you? I don't think anything that is natural can be bad for you."


--Gwyneth Paltrow reveals that she doesn't believe in skin cancer or sun poisoning or heat stroke or basically anything based in fact.

As annoying as Gwyneth here can be, she's never really come across as just straight up dumb, right? Pretentious, of course, and ignorant, yes, but dumb? Well, there's a first time for everything, it seems. Let's just hope that Gwyneth doesn't decide to have a first time for making a totally delish, all natural recipe using hemlock or oleander or any weird mushrooms she finds growing somewhere. Because girl, natural things can be bad for you. Get a grip.

Active volcanoes are natural too but I wouldn't want to live near one.

Lets put 1000 peolple out in the Sun. Will they all get skin cancer? Heat Stroke? Sun Posioning? NO. there are other factors at work then just the Sun. The way you would have it we should all be living in a cave somewhere. MODERATION.

What an idiotic thing to say. Hemlock and radon gas are natural too, does that make them ok? Skin cancer only starts with the skin and then progresses through out your body. It's a truly horrible form of cancer. Shame on her for saying such things.

She can be pompous, but she is right.
It is hard to explain logic to sheep though, so go ahead and criticize her comments, and continue to put that cancer cream disguised as sunscreen on your skin, and don't cry when you find out you develop skin cancer. Protection starts from the inside like eating healthy and taking supplements, not the outside.

I am not defending her but she is right in some respect though overly simplistic bordering on ignorant. If the sun is extinguished, there goes all life on this planet including bacteria. If you are fair skin (as opposed to someone who has more melanin) you have a greater risk of having a negative experience with the sun such as sunburns and heat strokes. It's all in the genes, lifestyle, and health status. The world if full of dangerous things to humans and they are natural to the planet Gwennie. The problem with Gwen is that she has no credibility with mere mortals. How does Chris live with it?

Who writes this stupid website? Two weeks ago you were praising this woman. Now you've taken a quote we're supposed to believe is true and you slam her? Ain't buying it from a webiste called "Fishwrapper"...sounds like slimy tuna to me...

I cannot stand this woman! However, there is nothing wrong with getting outdoors and enjoying the sun in moderation! I'm sick of doctors scaring people out of the healthy sun! We would not be alive without it. Frankly many people are sickly today because they do not get enough natural vitamin D that you can't get from a pill or food products. It also helps prevent a diagnosed depression Called season affective disorder. Aka SAD! Some doctors who do believe in this WILL recommend small amts of indoor tanning in winter months to avoid SAD. Although few because they're afraid of backlash.

I have never heard of anyone saying anything that f'n stupid. I fought skin cancer at the age of 27... 10 months of chemo to make sure that I was good and now madame Paltrow believes it's not real??? Really?? What an idiot!!!!

Wow,

Way to put words into someones mouth. I saw no where in this article where it was she was quoted saying "I don't believe in skin cancer". I hope you guys get sued for this defamation crap one day.

she is not saying cancer does not exist. She is simply stating that the sun IS good for us. We should not be getting vitamin D out of a bottle! that is what is causing all these cancers, all the unnatural vitamins people take made into a pill. Diet, lifestyle, GMO's, etc. there are many factors in skin cancer, its just NOT the sun. She may come off as snobby but a lot of her views on food and diet is spot on.

Give her a break! She was talking about the sun and 15 minutes a day, not exposure to an atom bomb explosion!!!! Get real!!!!!!!! :P

Can't understand how this woman is #1 on some list of beautiful woman. Looking at her close up reveals the make up that is packed on her face and what about those crow feet?

Maybe we'll get lucky and her theory about the sun not causing skin cancer will back fire on her. So go ahead and spend your time in the sun unprotected with that lovely fair skin and blond hair-that type is supposed to be more susceptible to skin cancer. Why don't you try to prove that theory wrong, Gwennie!

My mom recently passed away from Melanoma, and I saw the hell that she went through for 13 months. Gwenny poo should spend some time at a cancer center and see what a Melanoma patient goes through. Maybe she'll wise up and realize that the sun, though "natural", IS bad for you, though I'm not going to hold my breath. What an idiot. Her poor kids.

In her defense, I don't think she meant being out in the sun for extended periods of time. A little sun helps with depression and is good for vitamin D absorption. Give the woman a break!

What a stupid headline. All she said was that 15 minutes in the sun daily is good for you. True. It boosts Vitamin D and currently there is an epidemic of low Vitamin D levels, with doctors pushing medication on patients. Natural is better. So how about Truth in Headlines mmmm?
