Maybe it was the Goop. Maybe it was the fact that she named her daughter after fruit. Or maybe it was just her personality. But for whatever reason, when Star magazine compiled a list of the 20 most hated celebrities, Gwyneth Paltrow’s name came out on top.

Accessorized with attributes like “arrogant,” “pretentious” and “condescending,” Gwynnie beat out the loathsome likes of Jesse James and Chris Brown. That’s harsh. That’s also a lesson in the potency of being annoying. Apparently it’s worse than being a serial cheater/ woman-hitter.  Need more evidence? Check out the full list below:

But is this accurate? Is Gywneth Paltrow really the least likeable person in Hollywood? I’d say no. Certainly there is an element of the ridiculous about her, like trying to sell a white T-Shirt for $90, or the fact that she doesn’t eat anything but $300-a-day juice cleanses. She’s pretentious. She has a pallet for quality. But wouldn’t we if we had her riches too? Gwynnie doesn’t deserve our hatred just because we eat ramen noodles for 5 meals a week (or at least I do #brokecollegestudentstatus).

I’d argue that 95% of that list is way more annoying than Gwyneth Paltrow. Justin Bieber? He wears harem pants and spits at people! Like a camel! John Mayer? He once publicly outed a girlfriend for being like “sexual napalm.” Taylor Swift? Well, let’s just let this article speak for itself. And don’t even get me started on Chris Brown.

I’m kind of surprised Amanda Bynes isn’t on the list. She’s kind of the new Lindsay Lohan, no? Or Heidi Montag. But then again, even giving her the title of celebrity would be too much of a service.

So yeah, Gwyneth Paltrow makes us feel fat and poor on the reg. But she’s never publicly cheated, assaulted, salivated (J. Biebs, we’re looking at you), humiliated, or fallen over drunk off her ass. She’s arrogant, but judging by how well she keeps it together, she kind of has a reason to be.

Do you hate Gwyneth Paltrow? Or are there other celebrities much much worse?
