Gwyneth Paltrow has once again done something to reinforce the belief held by an untold number of people that she is one of the most insufferable people on the entire planet.
Paltrow, who has proven time and time again, that she only has a very faint grasp of how the average person lives and thinks, is now somehow claiming credit for the rest of the world wearing face masks to prevent the spread of coronavirus.
She says this in a new interview with the New York Times.
Any new hobbies during the pandemic?
I wouldn’t say that I developed new ones, but I’ve definitely recommitted or doubled down on some, like meditation. I do that every morning. Before, it was maybe once every couple of weeks, or maybe not at all. Also, I’m cooking all the time, like everybody else in the world.
You played Patient Zero in the movie “Contagion.” Did that prepare you for the pandemic?
I remember being on set and people saying, “This could really happen, and this will happen in our lifetime.”
Last February, way before face coverings became the norm, you posted a selfie on Instagram wearing a mask.
This is a familiar pattern in my life. I do something early, everyone is like, “What is she doing? She’s insane.” And then it’s adopted by the culture.
I had to take this trip to France when it was all kicking off. I wore it on the plane, but I didn’t wear it to the function that I was going to, and actually ended up getting Covid and coming home, and being one of the first people that I had heard of to have it.
Are you planning to take the vaccine?
I still have antibodies. I want everybody else who isn’t protected to go first.
I don’t even know where to begin with those quotes.
Thankfully, others on the internet do.
I guess that she’s never been to smoggy Beijing or even Hong Kong where masks have been worn for decades before COVID made them every day use for the rest of the world.— Stu Gatz (@StewartGatz) February 21, 2021
Of course, not traveling to Paris would have been wiser.— gneiss (@gneiss68) February 21, 2021
I also feel like I started social distancing before it was a thing— Retraction Podcast (@Retractionmedia) February 21, 2021
I used to wash my hands pre covid. Do I win?— Janine Aldis (@jvl1977) February 21, 2021
So let’s see she created Yoga and now face masks?— Thegoofyone68+1 (@thegoofyone68) February 21, 2021

I think the part where she only wore it on the plane and caught COVID-19 anyway at a Parisian party is the best part.— Turner Corning (@TurnerCorning) February 21, 2021

Paltrow is also getting dragged for this…
It truly is surprising that it took her this long to try and monetize the pandemic.
