The Hollywood A-lister, who has a checkered past when it comes to driving, was snapped in Malibu, Calif. on Saturday talking on a phone as she drove — a blatant violation of a years-long law in the Golden State that prohibits motorists from using handheld devices while driving.
As we previously reported, Paltrow has come under fire for her behavior as a motorist before, including a Sept. 13, 2013 incident in which she recklessly cut off a school bus on a Vespa scooter at her children’s school in Los Angeles; and the school’s subsequent ban on her and estranged husband Chris Martin from using the scooters for pickups and drop-offs.
When the massively-entitled star isn’t chatting her way down PCH at high speeds, she seems to be in a sparring match with Martha Stewart over a battle for who’s top dog in the lifestyle industry, with her growing website, Goop.
In the latest salvo in the war, Stewart lampooned the phrase “conscious uncoupling” — Paltrow’s famously pretentious choice of words for her breakup with husband Chris Martin earlier this year — in her November issue Martha Stewart Living. The jab came in a Thanksgiving recipe feature story called “Consciously Coupled,” regarding food combinations that work well together.
