Gwyneth Paltrow: Her Halloween Costume is Actually Good!

Drop what you’re doing and look at Gwyneth Paltrow’s Halloween costume. No, we’re not kidding.

If you haven’t seen the box office-topping 1995 crime-thriller, Se7en, then … well, beware. 22-year-old spoilers around.

Regardless, you need to see this.

Again, Gwyneth’s costume contains a movie spoiler, so be warned.

Though, to be fair, this particular movie spoiler is from 1995 and is old enough to drink.

We can talk about why it’s funny and why people don’t really root for Gwyneth’s costumes to be great in a moment.

But … you deserve to see this photo.

Twitter funny-man Patrick Monahan (not the guy from Train) tweeted: 

“It is with a heavy heart that I report that Gwyenth Paltrow’s Halloween costume owns.”

It is with similarly heavy hearts that we must absolutely confirm this.

Just look:

(The unnecessarily handsome guy with her is her boyfriend, Brad Falchuk, whose writing projects include … most of the stuff that you know Ryan Murphy for)

Okay, so, if you immediately got this, good for you and for your ’90s movie memory.

If not, let us refresh your memory.

(Or, again, potentially spoil a pretty epic crime thriller for you)

Way back in the year 1995, Gwyneth Paltrow was in Se7en alongside then-boyfriend Brad Pitt.

(And Morgan Freeman and Kevin Spacey)

Well, at the end, Gwyneth’s character’s head ends up in a box. The question “what’s in the box” comes up among the characters, and the answer was … yeah. Super unpleasant.

It’s a very famous scene and Gwyneth’s costume being a callback to it is great and shows a better sense of humor than most people imagine her having.

As for the reason that people don’t necessarily root for Gwyneth Paltrow to do things that are funny or likeable, well …

Normally, this would be because of overexposure.

Like, people get sick of a star being everywhere, so they decide to hate them.

Either something comes up (like a minor scandal) and people use it as an excuse to turn their resentment at seeing a celebrity everywhere into hate, or … people just hate them anyway.

In Gwyneth’s case, though … there might be some elements of overexposure or whatever.

But a lot of people are tired of her and her Goop.

Contrary to what she thinks, people don’t just hate her because she’s a woman, but because she peddles “alternative remedies” that have been famously blasted by doctors as ineffective and even dangerous.

Please go to real doctors instead of sticking rocks up your vaginas, folks.

Because of that and the way that Gwyneth talks — talking about “consciously uncoupling” because apparently “breakups” are too pedestrian or mainstream or whatever — she can really rub people the wrong way.

It’s nice and refreshing to see her displaying a down-to-earth sense of humor.

There are other famous films with famous spoilers that actors could potentially parody as Halloween costumes.

One that comes to mind is the spoiler from The Usual Suspects, though hopefully Kevin Spacey will just stay home this Halloween, considering the circumstances.

Gwyneth Paltrow’s controversies are much less serious, though.

It’s nice to see this side of Gwyneth every now and then.

Because she’s usually so full of … Goop.


Tomi Lahren Actually Thinks This Costume is Patriotic

Tomi Lahren is a conservative commentator who thinks it's very easy to respect your country:

Just deck yourself out in the colors of the flag, right?

WRONG, many critics have pointed out after taking a look at Lahren's costume below.

So wrong, in fact, that the outspoken Republican is actually violating the code of the U.S. Flag and acting in a very inappropriate manner.

Scroll down for a look at the costume and the ensuing backlash:

1. Wrote Lahren as a Caption to This Photo:

Tomi lahren halloween costume
“Oh LA get ready to find your safe spaces! What am I? Well if you’re a conservative, I’m American AF. If you’re a lib, I’m “offensive.” Let’s go. #TeamTomi #halloween #MAGA #Merica #makeHalloweenGreatAgain.”

2. Controversy Over the Flag

Controversy over the flag
As you likely know, there’s been a major controversy for weeks about this topic, considering many NFL players are kneeling during the national anthem, a significant offense to critics.

3. So, Lahren is Clearly Honoring America, Right?

So lahren is clearly honoring america right
Many people would say so. Others would say this is a pathetic case of exploition and a million times worse than kneeling for the national anthem. The U.S. Flag Code? It would state what you see above.

4. Yes, There’s a Flag Code

Yes theres a flag code
If we’re really debating this, why not look up some facts on the matter, right?

5. The Internet Was Quick to Point This Out

The internet was quick to point this out
It’s almost like folks took pleasure in doing so.
