When she was younger, Gwyneth Paltrow allegedly toilet-papered Arnold Schwarzenegger’s home because he refused to hand out Halloween candy to trick-or-treaters.
When Paltrow made an appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” on Monday night dressed as the popular children’s figure Winnie the Pooh, she spoke about her happy childhood recollections of trick-or-treating in the A-list Santa Monica neighborhood.
The creator of Goop revealed that not all the celebrities who lived in the neighborhood celebrated Halloween by handing out candy, so she and her pals had no option but to perform a joke on them. The founder of Goop is the daughter of the late film director Bruce Paltrow and actress Blythe Danner.
Schwarzenegger and his family, who starred in “The Terminator,” were among them. Paltrow said that because to his Austrian ancestry, Schwarzenegger may not have observed Halloween rituals.
Kimmel questioned: “Would you hang out with other famous kids? calling Jack Nicholson’s door or anything like that?” Paltrow’s reply read: “In any case, Arnold Schwarzenegger once resided on our block. For sweets, we would rap on his door.”
She went on: “I don’t recall him handing out anything. He’s Austrian, however, so maybe there aren’t any celebrations.”
Similar to many other nations, Austria observes Halloween in a different way from the US. In the nation of central Europe, kids don’t trick-or-treat, wear costumes, or consume candy. Instead, they commemorate loved ones who have died away by celebrating Seleenwoche, also known as All Souls Week.
Paltrow said that she and her friends “did wind up T.P.-ing his home” despite being unaware of the reason why Schwarzenegger chose not to partake in US Halloween traditions.
“Unfortunately, we did it to a handful of the residences there. She said, “But he was our pride and pleasure, and we were just being mischievous kids.”
“Sure. Yes, you may announce to everyone, “We have the home of the Terminator!” Wow. It seems like you ought to make amends, “Kimmel said.
Paltrow said, “I do, I do.”
In other parts of the conversation, Paltrow discussed how her marketing staff had convinced her to pose naked in gold paint to commemorate her 50th birthday in September. She said, nonetheless, that she had no intention of repeating the action.
“I told the men, “Okay, this is it; the final nude picture session”.” I’m finished,” stated the actor.
