Gwyneth Paltrow moves to UK for kid's education

Filed under: Celeb Kids, Celeb Parents, Rumors, Day Care & Education

Actress Gwyneth Paltrow has taken a lot of heat for disparaging remarks she has made in the past about Americans. For example, the Portuguese newspaper Diario de Noticias quoted her as saying, "The British are much more intelligent and civilized than the Americans." She not only denies making that statement, she says she never even spoke with the paper. She does admit to giving a press conference in Spain where she says she may have mangled her Spanish and been misunderstood.

If that were the only case of her dumping on Americans, I could give her the benefit of the doubt. But she's been quoted all over the place unfavorably comparing Americans to Brits. In response to the criticisms of her remarks, she has claimed that she is proud to be an American.

So, why is she selling her New York home and buying another in London? Because, according to the Daily Mail, she wants to educate her children, Apple and Moses, in British schools.

It is certainly prerogative to raise her children wherever and however she pleases, but because of her previous comments, I suspect she is going to be roundly criticized for it.
