Oscar-winning actress and all-round wholesome human being, Gwyneth Paltrow, was denied the chance to contribute to Yahoo Food because she doesn’t have any little letters after her name.
Yep, that’s right, the Yahoo CEO and president Marissa Mayer decided that Gwyneth should have attended university if she wanted to write for foodie site, Yahoo Food.
Commenting on the situation, one executive said: “Mayer disapproved of the fact that Paltrow did not graduate college.” This seems a little short-sighted considering the fact that Chris Martin’s ex practically personifies healthy eating and all-round well-being and would therefore be a very valuable asset to the site!
Gwynnie has, after all, written and created a best-selling cookbook in addition to being the face of popular lifestyle website, Goop. Maybe someone should tell Marissa that Gwyneth managed to do all this and take home an Academy Award WITHOUT having to sit through 9am lectures.
But here’s the bottom line kids- Marissa Mayer only considers university graduates as potential website contributors and poor old Gwyneth fell short on that front. We bet Gwyneth’s really kicking herself for focussing on her amazing acting skills now.
