Last Tuesday, March 21, the civil and public process began for which the actress and businesswoman Gwyneth Paltrow (Los Angeles, 50 years old) is being tried for a ski accident at a Utah resort (USA) in which she was seen involved seven years ago, in 2016. The plaintiff, Terry Sanderson, a 69-year-old retired doctor, is seeking compensation of $300,000 for damages caused after the Oscar-winning performer "forcefully knocked him down and knocked him unconscious."
In the lawsuit, the doctor explained how the incident caused him "a permanent traumatic brain injury, left him with four broken ribs, pain, depression, loss of enjoyment of life, emotional distress and disfigurement."
For her part, Gwyneth Paltrow has responded with another demand for the sum of one dollar, alleging that it was he who collided with her.
The process, which is scheduled to last eight days, has gained media attention since it was learned that the actress was going to testify in it.
As it happened during the trial of Johnny Depp and Amber Heard, Paltrow's trial is also being broadcast live on YouTube, so Twitter is full of short videos of some moments that, as have been commented on networks, they seem to be taken from a fiction directed by Ryan Murphy (
American Crime Story
) or Mike White (
The White Lotus
Madonna, Gwyneth Paltrow or Eminem.
Why do all celebrities have an NFT?
From the beginning, the impossible (and already iconic)
that the actress has decided to take to trial have already made headlines in fashion magazines and memes on the net.
Users have also highlighted some of the artist's own interventions during the process.
An example: when asked what her consequences were after the accident, taking into account the damage caused to the doctor, she replied: "Well, I lost a day and a half of skiing."
Another topic of conversation is the strange fixation of Sanderson's lawyer, Kristin VanOrman, with the actress.
The latter has asked Paltrow about her relationship with the singer Taylor Swift, who also requested symbolic damages of one dollar in a sexual abuse case that she won in 2017, and has dedicated all kinds of compliments to her, since surely “She leaves very good tips” as she is “very jealous” of Paltrow's height.
