Oh, Gwyneth Paltrow. Sweet, beautiful, infuriatingly out-of-touch with reality Gwyneth Paltrow. While speaking at the Airbnb Open in LA this past weekend, the actress and GOOP founder was as unrelatable as ever when she commented on the recent presidential election, declaring this an "exciting time to be an American," as Page Six reports. Ok, Gwyneth. Exciting for you maybe.

"It’s such an exciting time to be an American because we are at this amazing inflection point,” said the 44-year-old actress, whose GOOP website once suggested women purchase a $15K vibrator.


“People are clearly tired of the status quo," she continued. "And … it’s sort of like someone threw it all in the air and we’re going to see how it all lands. It’s very important for me, personally, now more than ever, to create a community and to remember the humanity of everybody and to create love and … understanding.”

Ah, yes. Let's throw America up in the air and see how it lands! How fun! Like confetti! Very, very, very expensive confetti! Tra la la dee da!

As far as her political leanings, she pleaded the fifth. “The most amazing thing for me about this election is I felt … 'I don’t understand the opposition well enough at all,'" she said. "I’m not going to tell you what side I’m on, but my big takeaway was, 'I really need to open my mind and understand better because I don’t.'”


Someone please explain to Gwyneth Paltrow why America is not a pile of confetti.
