Personal Quote:

[in defense of her daughter Gwyneth Paltrow] I feel she's just extraordinarily accomplished in every area, and people don't like that - people who are bored and sit on their asses all day and just tap away. I mean, I don't read any of it. I just find it disgusting. There is a coarsening of our culture today that is just so tragic. See more »
