The Mortdecai actress, 42, impressively did not Plead the Fifth (at all!) during Andy Cohen‘s popular segment. Instead, she took all of his questions in stride, telling the Bravo personality that her infamous April 2009 GOOP newsletter about a “frenemy” was not-at-all related to a celebrity.
Cohen then asked Paltrow which of her exes’ current wives she would rather be stuck in an elevator with: Brad Pitt‘s spouse Angelina Jolie or Ben Affleck‘s wife Jennifer Garner. “That’s a really good question!” Paltrow said, stalling. “Um, I mean…I think either. I really like Jennifer Garner. I don’t know Angelina Jolie very well.”
She was then asked about the “hardest drug” she’s ever consumed during her many years in Hollywood. Without skipping a beat, Paltrow responded: “Ecstasy.” (Paltrow has previously joked about her past drug use, telling Ross Mathews in 2013: “I did so many drugs in the ’90s. I don’t remember. I have no idea.”)
Another topic of interest on WWHL was Paltrow’s friendship with Beyonce and Jay Z, which she also discussed with Stern. “The greatest perk of being their friend,” mused Paltrow, “is that I have a relationship with people who have similar [backgrounds]. Obviously, I’m not as famous or successful as they are, but I do have a life in the public eye, and I have people to walk through life with in that capacity.”
She noted of the world-famous couple: “They’re very kind and loving people.”
The best aspect about being Bey and Jay’s bestie is none other than hanging out with Blue Ivy Carter. “It also means I get to be around their daughter, who I love so freaking much!” Paltrow, a mother of two herself, gushed.
Cohen then asked about the 3-year-old hip-hop scion’s personality. “She is a powerhouse,” the Goop founder noted. “She is the boss of everything. She can do all the choreography to ‘Chandelier,’ even though she’s just 3 years old. She’s just super smart, and I love her so much.”
