Gwyneth Paltrow hosted a dinner for her nearest and dearest on Monday evening at her pal Julian Schnabel's immense NYC home, Palazzo Chupi. We had a look at her famous guests leaving the bash earlier this week, and now here are snaps from inside! Gwyneth gathered her brother Jake, mom Blythe Danner, and husband Chris Martin to celebrate her new cookbook My Father's Daughter along with Cameron Diaz, Jay-Z, and many more. She kept the promotional appearances coming with a stint on Good Morning America yesterday and today on The Early Show. Despite all the emphasis on her kitchen skills, Gwyneth makes sure to keep her balance with serious dedication to her workouts. She showed off her hard work with trainer Tracy Anderson by doing the cover of Self magazine's May issue in a bikini top, and in an accompanying interview she discussed how her kids are the best inspiration to stay healthy and fit.
Gwyneth went from showing off Pleasures in Chicago to attending a screening of The Good Night in East Hampton this weekend. The film is a family affair that stars and was written and directed by her brother Jake. Unfortunately, it looks like their mom Blythe Danner missed the event, but the siblings were surrounded by lots of good family friends including Stella McCartney and Kate Capshaw. Jake wasn't sure about having his sister star in his directorial debut, but Gwyneth begged and got the part. She said, "I read the script, and I was like, Please let me be in this! It's so weird and real and amazing."
Last night was a family affair for the Paltrows at the premiere of The Good Night. The film stars Gwyneth and is directed by her brother Jake. Their mom Blythe Danner came out to support her two kids, along with family friends Steven Spielberg and Kate Capshaw. Gwyneth was so moved by Jake's directorial debut she even cried onstage after the screening, saying, "I'm so proud of my brother." Sounds like the film went off without a hitch. Gwyn was evidently concerned that the unpatriotic comments she was said to have made last year (she said later she was misquoted) would hurt her brother's film. But from the big turnout at Sundance, it looks like she has nothing to worry about.

Gwyneth is still regretting the supposedly unpatriotic statements she made to a Portuguese newspaper. After admitting her comments were lost in translation due to her poor language skills, she is still worried the backlash against her will affect her brother's directorial debut film since audiences may boycott the film due to her statements. Life & Style reports:
“She’s just torn up about this,” says an insider.
The actress insists she was simply “speaking from the heart” when she spoke of her love for the English lifestyle.
“But when she went online and saw the reaction, she freaked out,” says the insider. “She called her press agent, who advised her to issue a statement that she’s proud to be an American.”
Now Gwyneth is just hoping the American public will forgive her.
Says the insider: “It would break her heart if Jake’s first major directing effort was torpedoed because she misspoke.”
In the past good movies usually win out over bad press. Hopefully people will accept Gwyneth's explanation and move on. For more pics just read more
Gwyneth seems to be losing all that baby weight by going to the same gym as Madonna. Besides working out Gwyneth has also been working with her brother Jake on The Good Night. Jake is directing the film which includes Danny DeVito, Penelope Cruz and Martin Freeman. Gwyneth is no stranger to working with her famous family but this is the first film she's done with Jake. It's about a washed-up pop star who writes jingles and has a mid-life crisis. We look forward to seeing what the family creates.
