Gwyneth Paltrow Doesn't Have a Ghostwriter of the Day
- -

This weekend, Gwyneth Paltrow took some time out from being perfect to deny a claim in a New York Times Dining Section article that named Julia Turshen as the ghostwriter of her cookbook, My Father's Daughter.

"Love @nytimes dining section but this weeks facts need checking," tweeted the actress. "No ghost writer on my cookbook, I wrote every word myself."

Seriously, New York Times fact checking department, get your act together.

It's not like Turshen wrote an entire article in Food & Wine about working with Paltrow on her book. Oh, wait.

Classic Cut of the Day

Released in 1994, Ben Stiller's cult classic Reality Bites stars Winona Ryder, Ethan Hawke, Janeane Garofalo, and Steve Zahn as recent college graduates figuring out their paths in life.

The film was written by Helen Childress, who was a 19-year-old freshman at the University of Southern California when she finished the script.

Ryder's role was written with her in mind, but Garofalo beat out Gwyneth Paltrow, Anne Heche, and Parker Posey for the role of Vickie Miner.

In the classic cut above, the two characters hold an impromptu dance party at a gas station.
