Gwyneth Paltrow’s credentials as an eco-warrior took a serious nosedive this week after she chose to hop onboard a chauffeur driven limo to be whisked a whole 10 meters to a restaurant a few doors away from the Stella McCartney Boutique in LA where the actress had been attending an event.
The 39-year-old actress was one of many celebrity guests at a party held at the Stella McCartney Boutique to celebrate the launch of Paul McCartney’s new single, My Valentine. A whole host of famous faces attended the start studded bash including Orlando Bloom and his wife Miranda Kerr, also Jane Fonda and Gwyneth’s husband, Coldplay front man Chris Martin.
It’s understood that all of the other guests at the bash, including Gwyneth’s hubby Chris, chose to stroll the 10 meters or so from the boutique to the Italian restaurant where the celebrations were carrying on, however the actress and mother of two opted for a chauffeur driven limo ride, which took barley 10 seconds one source claimed.
A spokesperson for Gwyneth Paltrow confirmed that the star had taken the limousine ride between the two venues on security advice.
In the past, the Oscar winning actress has backed environmental campaigns and even appeared in public service announcements on green issues, however The Shakespeare in Love star’s decision to hop in a gas-guzzling limo to travel just a few yards seems to contradict the actress’s commitment to an eco-friendly lifestyle.
