Gwyneth Paltrow‘s music ties run deep. She’s married to Coldplay front man Chris Martin and was at pal Jay Z‘s wedding to Beyonce. As her Two Lovers co-star Joaquin Phoenix embarks on his rap career, the actress jokingly gave advice to her fellow thespian.
“What advice would I give to Joaquin?” she laughed to MTV. “Hmm … maybe to go live in the projects for a few years to get some authenticity, maybe.”
Many have speculated that Phoenix’s self-imposed retirement, bizarre public appearances, and foray into music, is part of an elaborate hoax.
“I think that there might be some other explanation or something going on,” Paltrow continued. “I’m not quite sure what, but I can’t believe that he’s really going to quit forever to become a rapper. It seems odd.”
She took the time to anounce her own decision to be the female Eminem. “I’d like to take this opportunity to announce that I’m quitting acting to become a rapper,” she laughed. “So, I’m going to write ‘good-bye’ across my knuckles and everything. Do you have a pen?” (Photo: Getty)
