Gwyneth Paltrow Makes Comparisons of Spain and America

Are You Bothered by Gwyneth's Comments About America?

Gwyneth Paltrow is at it again, this time comparing the lifestyle and culture of Spain, where she filmed her PBS series, to America. The actress has found herself having to backtrack in the past when she's talked up Europe in ways that put down the United States, but that doesn't seem to stop her. She said,

"[Spain] is so different from the United States. It seemed to have a history, and the buildings are years and years and years old. Here in the United States an old building is about 17 (years old), and over there it's from 500 B.C., it's incredible. Also, the way people live over there. They seem to enjoy life a little bit more. They aren't running around as much as in New York. They enjoy time with the family. They don't always have their Blackberries on."

This isn't the first time Gwyneth has compared American culture to other countries, but tell us — are you bothered by her comments?
