The net is abuzz over Gwyneth Paltrow’s comments concerning how much she dislikes horses, how much her daughter loves them, and how Stella McCartney should really be raising her child, etc, etc.
“She (daugher Apple) loves riding – she competed in her first horse show the other day and won second place,” she told Vogue UK. “Well of course I was thrilled for her -but it’s incredible because I hate horses and have nothing really to do with them.”
Riddle me this: If Paltrow hates horses so much, why was she the star attraction at a 2008 charity fundraiser for the Amaryllis Farm Equine Rescue Organization. Hell, she even read a poem aloud to her captive audience about the legendary horse Snowman, “whose heart was as radiant as the white snow” and who was rescued by Harry de Leyer, a Long Island riding instructor.
“In saving the horse, Harry became an instrument of the divine,” said Paltrow. “When we make the only choice possible, and that is to love, then all of us become what we were intended to be. We are the power.”
Doesn’t really sound like someone who “hates” horses — so maybe this whole thing is being taken out of context. Or was it just good acting for a cause?
