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."
Variety is reporting this curious tidbit: At the Karlovy Vary Film Festival next week in the Czech Republic, Danny DeVito will be honored with a Crystal Globe for, apparently, his "contribution to world cinema."
The article continues to say that DeVito will also introduce the movie he stars in titled The Good Night, directed by Gwenyth Paltrow's brother Jake Paltrow and also starring... Gwyneth Paltrow.
But back it up for a minute here... world cinema? Perhaps I underestimated the impact Reno! 911: Miami had on the world because this is baffling to me. What, exactly, has DeVito done for world cinema? No, seriously, I'm asking you.
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.
