Gwyneth Paltrow is fighting back against the man who sued her for allegedly crashing into him on a ski slope in Utah, can report.

In a shocking countersuit obtained by, the Hollywood actress claimed Dr. Terry Sanderson, 69, is not telling the truth about what really happened at the Deer Valley Lodge, where the two collided on a ski mountain.

According to Paltrow, 46, she was enjoying a day of skiing while vacationing with her family when Sanderson "plowed into her back."

The Goop founder claimed she suffered a "full 'body blow,' and confronted the plaintiff about the crash. She claimed he "apologized."


"She was shaken up and upset, and quit skiing for the day even though it was still morning," the countersuit said.

The 69-year-old skier alleged in his lawsuit that he suffered a brain injury and four broken ribs as a result of the ski crash. However, Paltrow claimed Sanderson had experienced vision problems and suffered from "chronic medical issues" years prior to the incident.

Additionally, Paltrow claimed Sanderson told a Deer Valley employee he was "ok" during an evaluation of hte incident. The Deer Valley employee prepared a report stating plaintiff was responsible for the collision, the docs claimed.

The actress denied "any damages" to the plaintiff and demanded a jury trial. She is also demanding just one dollar from Sanderson in the countersuit, much like Taylor Swift did in her groping countersuit in 2017.

"Because her injuries were relatively minor, she seeks only symbolic damages in the amount of $1, plus her attorneys' fees to defend this meritless claim," the documents stated.
