Paltrow Reps Deny Poor Movie Reviews
posted by Emily at 5:26 PM
From the Internet Movie Database news today:
Gwyneth Paltrow's representatives are angrily denying the Hollywood beauty's new movie Sylvia will be a critical flop. According to gossip website Pagesix, spies at the movie's production company have slated the film, in which Paltrow portrays suicidal poet Sylvia Plath. Speculation is also mounting over the state of her own mental health, with one source saying, "Gwyneth is really depressed about her career. She hasn't had a hit in a very long time. This is on top of the depression over her father's death." But Paltrow's spokesman, Stephen Huvane, insists, "We are doing an Oscar push for the movie which will be released the first week of October. Gwyneth saw the first draft of the movie and thinks it's the best thing she has ever done. We have already booked three covers of three major magazines - we are shooting one right now - to help promote the movie." A rep for Focus Films, the indie production house that's putting out the biopic, adds, "We are releasing Sylvia this fall and are very excited about it.
