(Newser) – Oh, Gwyneth … just when you finally have people begrudgingly starting to like you again, you remind us all why you’re the actress everyone loves to hate. “I miss America, but I love living in the UK,” she gushes in Harper’s Bazaar UK. “In England, people are cool. They're really laid back and calm,” she explains, going on to describe how no one freaked out when she brought Beyonce with her on a school run once.

“Oh right, of course. As opposed to Americans, who just spazz out completely every time they see a famous person,” writes Jessica Pressler in New York. “Here's a tip, Gwyn. Try bringing Robbie Williams or Jordan to the school run and see how that goes over.” Pressler also mocks Paltrow’s comment in the cover story, reported in the Huffington Post, that people are “so mean” to her about her slightly unrealistic lifestyle website, GOOP: Click here for her entire hilarious response.
