Remember, Gwyneth Paltrow: silence is golden.

As the Contagian actress celebrates her 39th birthday Tuesday, Us Weekly has compiled some of her most ridiculous quotes over the years.

Proving that she's not Just Like Us!, Paltrow told Elle UK in 2009: "I am who I am. I can't pretend to be somebody who makes $25,000 a year."

The foodie — who released her first cookbook, My Father's Daughter, in April 2011 — doesn't bite her tongue when it comes to fine cuisine, either. "I'd rather smoke crack than eat cheese from a tin," she said at the iTunes Festival in July 2011. (Six years earlier, Paltrow proclaimed: "I would rather die than let my kid eat Cup-a-Soup.")
