Gwyneth Paltrow just confirmed a nasty rumor about her encounter with Bill Clinton in the White House

Mar 28, 2024

Bill Clinton’s White House years were not without controversy.

He ran a Democrat fundraising operation by selling nights in the Lincoln Bedroom and there was the infamous incident with intern Monica Lewinsky.

And now Gwyneth Paltrow just confirmed a nasty rumor about her and Bill Clinton in the White House.

Long-standing rumor about Bill Clinton confirmed

Another woman has gotten former President Bill Clinton into trouble for his time in the White House.

Academy Award-winning actress Gwyneth Paltrow confirmed that a rumor was true about an encounter she had with Clinton.

She sat down with YouTube personality Sean Evans on his show Hot Ones where he interviews his guest while they eat hot wings.

Paltrow was asked about a rumor that Clinton slept through a showing of her 1996 film Emma at the White House.

“Is it true that Bill Clinton passed out asleep during a White House screening of Emma?” Evans asked.

That prompted a laugh from her.

“True. He was snoring right in front of me. I was like, wow, I guess this is going to be a real hit movie,” Paltrow exclaimed.

She joked, “But it was, so f**k you, Bill Clinton!”

Emma was a success for Paltrow

Despite putting Clinton to sleep, Emma ended up being a commercial and critical success for the actress.

And the 1996 film went on to win the Academy Award for Best Original Musical or Comedy Score and was nominated for Best Costume Design.

It was an adaptation of an 1815 novel of the same name by English author Jane Austen which could explain Slick Willy’s lack of interest.

Emma earned $22 million at the domestic box office on a budget of $6 million.

Paltrow weighs in on superhero movies

Paltrow had a career resurgence by playing the role of Pepper Potts in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

She gave her take on the superhero movie genre during the interview with Evans.

“But I think, if I look at the industry as a whole, there’s this sort of big push into superhero movies,” Paltrow said. “I mean, you can only make so many good ones that feel truly original and yet there’s still, you know, always trying to reach as many people as possible, which sometimes hinders quality or specificity or real point of view.”

She said the lower-budget movies she made in the 1990s like Emma probably wouldn’t get made today.

“I sometimes lament the fact — like, I look back at some of the movies I made in the ’90s and think that just wouldn’t get made now,” Paltrow said. “I do think that you do get more diversity of art when there’s less at stake, and people can sort of express their true voice and make a film the way they want to make it. And then I think those are generally the more resonant ones.”
