Gwyneth Paltrow Is Motivational

Shame and embarrassment are great motivators. Seems Gwyneth Paltrow realizes this because those are the two tools she used to get her friend Ross Matthews to lose weight.

Last November, Ross was taping a Chelsea Lately special with Paltrow when she, “pointed at my tummy and said, ‘What’s going on here? I love you. Get it together.'” A little c**ty but Matthews hit up Jenny Craig and lost 50 pounds dropping from 220 to 180.

“I was clueless about eating healthy before,” he says. “Now I’m making good choices.”

Even Paltrow has noticed the change. “I saw her when she was promoting her cookbook recently,” says Mathews. “She was so excited. She said, ‘You look good!’ ”

And she’s right: The comic has changed the way he eats, added exercise to his day and reached his goal weight of 180 lbs.

“The weight was such a shameful issue for me,” he admits. “I’m so happy to be rid of it.”

He’s also gone healthy. “I started walking rather than driving to get my coffee,” says the L.A. resident. “I liked it so much, I do it for 45 minutes every day … You know those annoying people who are like, ‘If I don’t work out I feel … ugh’? I might be becoming one of those people. [PEOPLE]

Gwyneth Paltrow should just release a workout book where all it does when you open it is shout, “You’re fat! Fatty fat fat fat! Hey fatty, want a cookie? You’re disgusting. Get it together!” She’ll be like the Tony Robbins of fat people but instead of instilling self-confidence, she’ll tear down their self-esteem until they either do something about it or commit suicide.

She just needs to STFU already. Who the f*ck is she to be giving advice to people, and what’s up with all those a*holes that actually follow and listen to her. If you’ll are interested, I have a bridge to sell ya!
