Can you imagine being best friends with the one and only Beyonce Knowles? Well, Gwyneth Paltrow doesn't have to imagine - the actress actually is BFFs with Beyonce. She and her then-husband, Coldplay's Chris Martin, met Bey and Jay Z at a charity event back in the early 2000s, and they've all been friends ever since (Blue Ivy was even featured on Coldplay's most recent album).
In a new interview with Harper's Bazaar, Paltrow dished on what Queen Bey is really like.
"If you met her and you didn't know who she was or what she did, it would be inconceivable to you that she was Beyonce," Paltrow revealed. "Some really famous people, even when they're off-duty, have this energy that is sort of overpowering. She does not have that. She is so dialed down."
"She's the sweetest mother. She's very shy. You would not believe she is Beyonce Knowles, you would be like, 'No, that was not her.' And that's why when I see her perform, I'm like, 'Oh, s**t, I forgot."
Beyonce, a real person and not an actual goddess? Sorry, I don't buy it.
Paltrow also dished that Bey isn't the type to make the lunches for their kids when they hang out, saying, "She doesn't make grilled cheese. Definitely not. I make the grilled cheese."
Now that, I can believe.
