Gwyneth Paltrow Thinks The Internet Is Not Safe

Gwyneth Paltrow talked a little about her 9-year-old daughter discovering things on the internet that she shouldn’t have. “Like 2 Girls One Cup?” Uh, no. Like innocent stuff about sex. “Oh, I haven’t heard of it either.” She explains to E! while bragging about how smart her kid is.

“She has such an incredible brain so she’ll ask me anything from what happens when our universe stops—what’s next?” Paltrow said while promoting her new dramedy about sex addiction, Thanks for Sharing. “She asks me about why bad things happen, if there’s a devil? Is God real or is it an energy?”

“She’s super-smart,” the proud mom continued. “She asked me like really big stuff.”

That doesn’t sound super-smart. That sounds super-annoying. You ever had a kid that won’t stop asking you questions? What did the five fingers say to the face. Amirite?

And then there’s the birds-and-the-bees talk.

“The Internet is causing some of these conversations to happen earlier and earlier,” Paltrow said. “She was exposed to a little something—not anything too bad, thank goodness—but by a friend who has older brothers and it’s too early. She’s only 9 and she’s an innocent 9, so we haven’t really gotten to it yet.”

Most important is keeping the lines of communication open, Paltrow said.

“I just say [to Apple], ‘There are things on the Internet that are really upsetting and even as a grownup that are too upsetting for me,'” she said. “And if she has any questions please come to me and she’ll never be in trouble but that the Internet is not safe.”

Wait until she turns 16 and tells her mom about this new, easy way to make money called “cam girls” where all you have to do is sit in front of a computer and stick things in yourself while people give you virtual currency. Easiest. Job. Ever!
