Gwyneth Paltrow’s hubby was so rude to journalists in Brazil that one is saying he feels sorry for the “Shakespeare in Love” star for being married to him.
“Gwyneth Paltrow must suffer,” opined a writer from Folha de Sao Paulo, according to our translator. “Chris Martin, her husband isn’t one of the nicest persons on earth. At least that’s what it seemed on the 20 minutes press conference.”
The Coldplay frontman was in the South American country, and became especially testy when his famous wife’s name was mentioned.
When a woman reporter asked if Martin ever planned to sing a duet with Paltrow, the musician snapped: “What’s your favorite sexual position?”
At one point, Martin reportedly griped that all that matters in music today is that your song becomes a ring tone.
And, according to Folha de Sao Paulo, shortly after Paltrow’s name was mentioned again, Martin stormed out.
Clooney backs ObamaGeorge Clooney is ready to throw his star power behind Barack Obama.
The star of “The Good German” told the London Daily Telegraph that the presidential hopeful is “the true rock star” of the Democratic party.
“I’ve never been around anybody who walks into a room and everyone just stops and listens to him,” Clooney said of the senator from Illinois. “He’s magnetic and charismatic in a way that we haven’t had for a long time. I would certainly go out and fundraise for him.”
On a lighter note, People magazine’s Sexiest Man Alive joked that he was going to adopt — but not quite like some of his Hollywood colleagues. He quipped, “I’m going to adopt a good-looking 24-year-old girl with some cash.”

Eric Bana is one intense actor. “I have a problem where, when I think I’m looking friendly, I look like I want to kill someone,” the “Munich” star tells Elle. “If my character has to feel something, I pretty much want to feel it. I want to feel like I’m killing someone. I want to feel the guilt someone feels after he’s stabbed someone or shot someone. I want to feel the fear of pointing a gun at someone. Because it’s just bloody interesting. Otherwise it just feels fake.”
