Starpulse is reporting that Gwyneth Paltrow's almost-equally-as-annoying husband, Chris Martin, ran into a former schoolmate recently and "couldn't resist the opportunity to show how successful he had become."

He says, "I bumped into a guy who used to give me hell at school. He was a bully who always said I wouldn't make anything of myself. I had great pleasure asking what he was up to now. He wasn't up to much. Then I turned around and said, 'This is my wife Gwyneth.' His face dropped and he looked really embarrassed.

We think it's safe to say that — unless he'd been living under a rock in the Cotswolds for the preceding half-decade — this former schoolmate had probably already heard of Coldplay and Chris Martin's marriage to Gwyneth Paltrow. So we prefer to think that he was more embarrassed for Chris than by him.
