Gwyneth Paltrow’s Kids Are Little Typhoid Marys
Gwyneth Paltrow is one actress we wouldn't want to call "mom." Not only would she have named us after fruits and Biblical characters without much sense of direction, she'd also expose us to germs on purpose.
Didn't 'Contagion' teach her anything?
In an interview with Britain's OK! Magazine, Gwynnie said she thinks it's pretty great for her kids Apple and Moses, who are eight and six respectively, to get down and dirty with those nasty ol' germs.
"When they get home from school, I ask them to wash their hands," said Paltrow. "But I think it's good for them to be in dirt and germs because that's how you build an immune system -- by getting sick. I mean, if someone has the flu, I don't put my kid in their face, but it's an inevitable fact of life."
We actually agree with her on some level -- parents often expose kids to chicken pox on purpose to get it over with, but 'Contagion,' which is about a deadly spreadable disease, made us so OCD we basically excrete hand sanitizer these days.
So, hey, thanks for that, Gwyneth. Thanks loads.
