Gwyneth Paltrow to kids: "I'm sorry I'm not Britney Spears."

Filed under: Celeb Parents

Gwyneth Paltrow has been in Park City, UT, promoting her film The Good Night at the Sundance Film Festival. When she wasn't working press junkets, Paltrow spent some time reading to a group of children. While she was being introduced, one of the kids asked: "Is it Britney Spears?" Unfazed, the actress responded: "I'm sorry I'm not Britney Spears, but I'll work on my dance routine."

And the reception she received from the group of second graders didn't immediately improve, either. She tried leading them in a chorus of "Consider Yourself" from the musical Oliver to no avail, finally managing to turn them around when she pulled out a copy of One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish.

"My daughter's favorite," she said.

I'm sure Paltrow has faced some tough crowds, but it sounds like these kids were rough. Always the consummate professional, by the end, she had them clamoring to sit on her lap, begging to be read to. Rock on, Gwyneth.
