London: She has transformed herself from Oscar-winning actress to self-styled life guru. But Hollywood actress Gwyneth Paltrow’s tips on diet, exercise and how to dress have been blamed for landing her at the top of a list of most hated celebrities.
The 40-year-old came first in Star magazine’s poll to find the 20 most irritating personalities in film, music and television.
Kristen Stewart, who lost fans after cheating on her Twilight co-star and boyfriend Robert Pattinson, was number two on the list.
Anne Hathaway came ninth, with voters accusing the Dark Knight Rises star of ‘phoney graciousness’, while actress Jennifer Lopez was third for ‘loving herself so much it’s scary’.
The top 10 also included Madonna, Justin Bieber, John Mayer, Katherine Heigl, Matt Lauer and Kim Kardashian.
It’s not quite clear why Paltrow would be on the top spot of this list, although it could have something to do with her aversion to all things carbs.
The mum-of-two recently caused outrage when she revealed that she and her family don’t eat carbohydrates because they are gluten intolerant, leading to them all suffering from "hunger pangs".
Paltrow explained to Yahoo: “Sometimes when my family is not eating pasta, bread or processed grains like white rice, we’re left with that specific hunger that comes with avoiding carbs.”
Following being convicted for assaulting girlfriend Rihanna in 2009, Chris Brown has continued to be embroiled in numerous outbursts and scandals over the years.
There must be something about the talented and age defying Gwyneth that gets people’s goats more, though.
