Perennial A lister, and fashion trendsetter, Gwyneth Paltrow celebrated her 40th birthday this past Friday night at Italian eatery Elio’s in NYC with all of her celebrity pals. Always one of the most popular actresses in town, the Academy Award winner did not leave a single friend off the list to help ring in this new milestone.
On the guest list were long time bestie Beyonce, new gal pal Cameron Diaz, mom Bylthe Danner, her husband Chris Martin, as well as Jessica Seinfeld, Chelsea Handler,Kristen Wiig, Jake Gyllenhaal, Stephen Speilberg, Christy Turlington, Ethan Hawke, Kate Capshaw, and The Beastie Boys’ Mike D.
Notabaly not on this list is former BFF Madonna, who Gwyneth has reportedly recently fallen out with. Her newfound friendship with Cameron has apparently put a strain on the longstanding friendship between Madge and Gwynnie, and from the sounds of things Madonna really missed out.
Of turning 40 on September 27th, Gwyneth was quoted saying:
“I was really worried about it, leading up to the day, but now I feel really happy and content with my life, I’m excited to move into the next phase. It’s much more exciting than I thought it would be.”
We can’t imagine it being much more exciting than partying it up with all those celebrity friends!
