Lady Gaga Writes an Emotional Open Letter About What It's Really Like to Live With PTSD

Gwyneth Paltrow Keeps It Simple

Gwyneth Paltrow is sparkling on the cover of the May issue of Vogue. She looks like a metallic princess with her silver gown and flowing hair.

Gwyn is gearing up for the release of her next movie, the summer blockbuster, Iron Man. He even got to make a cameo of sorts next to the cover girl. We doubt that her character is as pristine as she looks here, but we're excited to see her ditch the sequins and take on an action movie on May 2nd.

Like a twenty-something robotic Blake Lively? Blake is hardly pretty (or talented enough) for this analogy. I mean, really, she isn't the epitome of youthful beauty au naturale: http://www.gossipgirlinsider.com/images/gallery/blake-lively-puppy.jpgIf I were famous, I would not want someone itching to catch me in a weird facial expression out on the street either. I can understand how someone can be an actress and not want to be a celebrity. Acting is a craft and not everyone who becomes an actor is interested in the celebrity factor. While I am sure there is Photoshop involved, I often take photos where I look a bit unlike myself. I don't think her body looks Barbie dollish or that she looks overly bizarre. The overall tint of the photo and stiffness of the pose are what I find off putting.

Amesabelle, I don't think they have to like it or encourage it either. I'm sure Madonna doesn't care to have them in her face all of the time, but she just puts on her sunglasses and keeps moving. She doesn't pose and grin, but goes about her business talking with her friends or whatever. Gwyneth has to act like she's always being put upon and simply can't stand this fame that she has. So, if you don't like the publicity and cameras, step out of the spotlight. She was doing very well for awhile there - practically dropped out of sight. Anyway, I think it's that husband of hers that has created this. I'm surprised the man hasn't bought a Popemobile and hired retired Secret Service agents to encircle him every time he leaves his house.I suppose I'm letting some of my bias get in the way of my opinion here, because her arrogant attitude really turns me off and it comes through in these photographs. He's no prize either, IMO.

She looks a little stiff and posey. Tyra would not approve.

seriously, the photoshopping these days is getting out of control. these women do not need to be photoshopped in the first place, but if they are going to do it, then they should at least make it look like it could be real! it looks like they stuck gwen's body on a barbie doll.ps. can't stand her

Someone in the art department at Vogue needs to be slapped around a little. I know perfectly well that Photoshop is a necessary evil for cover photographs, but this doesn't even look like Gwyneth Paltrow any more. They went seriously overboard with the digital manipulation!

Weird cover. I can't believe they didn't get a better shot for the cover than this one. Sorry cherryice, I couldn't possibly agree with you less. Of course she's going to do magazine covers and go to events trying to promote her newest project; it's part of the job. However, getting her picture taken in her workout gear while walking to the gym is not. It can be said that they have to expect the photogs, but that doesn't mean they have to like or encourage it. I know I certainly wouldn't. Let's not forget that celebrities being hounded the way they are now hasn't always been the norm.BTW, you have no idea how much she or anyone else is hounded on any given day. Just because we see pictures sporadically doesn't mean they aren't ALWAYS lurking around following these people in their day-to-day lives. We just see the pictures people choose to publish.

FISHSTICKS! whatev, This is why i dont subscribe to ANY magazines anymore because a) the cover price is too high because they have to hire all these photoshop experts from outerspace and b)I dont know what is real anymore in regards to anyones body or features.

She looks way too photoshopped here. And is it just met or does anyone else find it strange she's going to be in an action blockbuster movie? It doesn't seem like her normal style, curious to see how it's going to work out.
