Following her announcement that she and Chris Martin are ending their decade-long marriage (that shit's hard, so all my sympathy and best of luck), Gwyneth Paltrow has also declared that she's going to take a break from acting. TBH, my first response to that was...what acting? She's not exactly doing five films a year, and Pepper Potts doesn't exactly gobble up screen time. But still, I get it. Sometimes it is good to simplify and streamline one's life. Sure, Goop has the luxury of doing that much more comfortably and extravagantly than the rest of us, but there's no reason to begrudge her whatever forms of self-care she can afford.
"I just finished a movie in January that I was doing at the end of last year in London with Johnny Depp, and then I had two weeks here, and then I did a couple of episodes for 'Glee' for the 100th episode," Paltrow told E! recently.
With that film wrapped, it's time to "go back to [being] mommy," said Paltrow, who announced her split from Coldplay frontman Chris Martin on her website Goop on Tuesday. "I have a rule about one movie a year, so I can't shoot anything for a while, but I'm developing some material and working on the site and raising kids."
Paltrow, 41, said it's difficult to manage her movie career now that her children — Apple, 9, and Moses, 7 — are getting older.
"I think it's different when you have an office job because it's routine and you know you can do all the stuff in the morning, and then you come home in the evening," she said. "When you're shooting a movie, they're like, 'We need you to go to Wisconsin for two weeks,' and then you work 14 hours a day, and that part of it is very difficult. I think to have a regular job and be a mom … of course, there are challenges, but it's not like being on set."
You do you, Goop. [LATimes]
Mantecore, the white tiger that mauled Roy Horn's face (that's Roy as in "Seigfried and"), has died at age 17.
Mantecore died March 19, wrote Siegfried Fischbacher on the duo's Facebook page Tuesday.
The tiger had been living at the Siegfried & Roy Secret Garden and Dolphin Habitat at the Mirage hotel.
Mantecore was a part of the long-running "Siegfried & Roy" show when it lunged at Roy Horn's neck halfway through a sold-out performance in October 2003.
"He (Horn) looked like a rag doll in his mouth," an audience member told CNN at the time.
Trainers quickly rushed the stage to subdue the tiger. It was Horn's 59th birthday.
By the time emergency officials arrived, Horn had suffered massive blood loss and was in critical condition.
He also suffered a stroke and required two surgeries.
RIP, Mantecore. I'm sorry you had to live in Las Vegas and dance for people instead of getting to be a tiger. [CNN]
L'Wren Scott left her entire $9 million estate to Mick Jagger.
"I give all my jewelry, clothing, household furniture and furnishings, personal automobiles, and other tangible articles of a personal nature, or my interest in any such property, not otherwise specifically disposed of by this will or any other matter together with my insurance on the property, to Michael Philip Jagger," Scott wrote.
"I give the rest and residue of my estate to my Michael Philip Jagger."
In New York state, anyone dying without a will would have their belongings split between their living spouse and other relatives.
So Scott seemed to take a final parting shot in her will, specifically outlining that she didn't want brother Randy Bambrough and sister Jan Bambrough Shane to get dime. She had been estranged from her sister.
Condolences, once again. [PageSix]
