I guess we can finally answer the burning question as to why Cameron Diaz retired from acting. It’s probably because she was asked to dedicate her life full-time to planning her pal Gwyneth Paltrow’s bachelorette party (and eventual uncoupling ceremony). Gwynny probably has Cam under contract for the next 10-20 years. In case your Goop newsletter somehow ended up in your spam folder, Gwyneth is getting hitched to American Horror Story co-creator Brad Falchuk. According to Page Six, the bride’s pre-wedding festivities are all going down this weekend in Mexico.
Page Six reports:
Sources exclusively told Page Six on Wednesday that Paltrow’s pals — including Cameron Diaz and designer Stella McCartney — were headed south of the border for the bash before Paltrow and Falchuck get hitched. A source said that Diaz booked a private jet for 12 guests to head down to the party.
Page Six says that Gwynny feels “like a 21 year old” because it’s her very first wedding (she and her “brother” Chris Martin eloped) and she’s so excited about it that she’s got all her best blond gal-pals whipped up to frothy vegan aquafaba meringue peaks about it too.
She added of the planning: “It’s kind of fun to talk about with my girlfriends. They send me pictures of dresses — they’re as excited about it as I am.”
Paltrow’s famous friends include Reese Witherspoon, Drew Barrymore, Beyoncé and Kate Hudson.
I wonder if Cameron has taken a hint on party favors from Goops’ “Bridesmaids Gift Guide” which includes $1,950 De Beers Enchanted Lotus stud earrings (“diamonds are a girl’s best friend”), $165 Goop Fragrance #2 (“fends off old lovers. ‘Nuff said”) and a 21-day whole food detox “challenge” (“enlist the whole gang for motivation”).
I’m hoping Cameron goes rogue and books a vegan tattoo artist to come and give everybody matching tramp stamps while they’re passed out.
