Apparently Gywnny’s dissing her heritage
But the question remains: was Gwyneth Paltrow on to something when she noted (or didn’t) that “the British are much more intelligent and civilized than the Americans,” and that “people here don’t talk about work and money; they talk about interesting things at dinner”? Whether Britons are objectively cleverer and more amusing than Americans, or whether they just sound that way, is one of the deep mysteries of British life for expatriates like Ms. Paltrow, who lives in London with her husband, the British rock star Chris Martin, and their children, Apple and Moses.
Of course I have my own opinions and can legitimately talk out of both sides of my mouth on this one. But then again, I can introduce you to some extremely uncivilized and unintelligent citizens of both nations!
