It is disheartening how noble intentions sometimes get met with sarcasm and criticism. Gwyneth Paltrow decided to slash her food budget in order to raise awareness about hunger that dogs the poor people’s lives. Although her style may not be too pleasant to a number of people, the fact that she at least acknowledges that some are really suffering and need help should please many. But this is not the case. Instead, so many on the social media, including her loyal fans, are lashing out at her.
All this began as a challenge. The Food Bank for New York City Challenge was proposed to her and she accepted. She lives on a budget of $29 or less each meal. This is meant to help the poor live on better portions during each meal. TFBNC suggests that if each person spared something during each meal, there would be more for the poor to eat since Congress cut food stamps not once but twice.
Paltrow twitted about it, sharing a picture of the meal she was taking on her $29 food budget. It was peas, eggs, rice, black beans, fresh vegetables, lime and tortillas. This did not go down too well with a number of twitter users, and one person told her she was joking with the idea of food stamp with the knowledge that she sat on millions while some people could barely put food on the table.
Paltrow has acted on a number of roles and is a known figure in the film and movie industry. Born on the 27th of September 1972, the famous actress is daughter to another actress Blythe Danner while the father was a film producer as well as director. She is of mixed heritage. The father is Polish while the mother is German. During an interview, she once said she was raised in both Jewish and Christian backgrounds.

Her career in acting took shape in 1989 when she appeared for the film High which was directed by her father. Previously, she had watched her mother act and was taking lessons from her. The second film Shout was acted alongside John Travolta. Steven Spielberg cast her in a film Hook in 1991 where she took the part of Wendy Darling. Other roles that brought out her acting prowess include Cruel Doubts and Deadly Relations in 1992 and 1993 consecutively.
Paltrow got married to Chris Martin in 2002. Together they have two children namely; Apple Blythe Alison (girl born in 2004) and Moses Bruce (boy born in 2006). She has been in previous relationships with Brad Pitt (read more about Brad Pitt here) and Ben Affleck. In an interview, she explained about their relationship with Brad Pitt which ended in heartbreak.
Her major boost to stardom was in 1996. She acted in Emma and was appreciated by the British audience for her impeccable English language. This was followed by a series of roles in other movies including Sliding Doors, Hush, A Perfect Murder, and Dial M for Murder. She was also featured in Shakespeare In Love after which her acting career took a downward trend.Read More »
