Burning Bridges

Wholesome UK based American actress Gwyneth Paltrow has caused a storm after recent comments comparing the quality of her life here in London and back home in the USA.

Here’s a couple of quotes which readers may wish to examine further in the comments box:

“The British are much more intelligent and civilised than the Americans.”

“I love the English lifestyle. It’s not as capitalistic as America. People talk about interesting things at dinner – not about work and money.”

Are these subjects really what most Americans talk about over supper or just movie producers? More importantly – what does a woman who called her first child Apple and second one Moses consider intelligent dinner table conversation?
