Gwyneth Paltrow had no idea she was in Spiderman: Homecoming.

Quick question for you on this very good summer Friday: Did you know that Jon Favreau had a cooking show?

No? Neither did I.

You know who else had no idea? The internet's weirdest new age aunt, Gwyneth Paltrow. AND SHE WAS ON THE DAMN THING.

Paltrow took a break from encouraging women to stick jade eggs into their vaginas to appear on Favreau and celebrity chef Roy Choi's new Netflix series — The Chef Show — and things got a little weird as soon as she stepped onto the set, picked up a tool that appears to be related to the grater family, and bravely asked: "What is this TV show for?"


As R. Eric Thomas points out over at Elle, this is the exact kind of energy we need to be bringing into our lives whenever our friends ask us to be part of their Insta stories. But it's also only the beginning. I know we're always out here bagging on Gwyneth Paltrow for giving questionable health advice (NEVER EVER FOLLOW IT), but when she reveals she has no idea that she ever appeared in a Spider-Man film? That's some "chef's kiss perfection right there."

Won't you watch the clip with me? (You'll need to catch up, though. I've seen it at least 45 times since it dropped this morning.)


I don't know if I will ever get over the facts that:

1: Gwyneth Paltrow just shows up to film movies, says her lines, collects the checks, and then just forgets it all because she's got more important things to worry about.

and

2: That someone can literally be giving Gwyneth Paltrow true facts about things that happened and she's so off in her own world of wellness stickers and macrobiotic gruel that she'll just say "no," politely and then try to get you to move on. It's something I'm going to try the next time someone confronts me with something small and unimportant that I just don't feel like dealing with.

Let's never forget this clip — especially when the weekend's over and Paltrow's back to telling us to eat bees to live forever.

Have you ever wondered what drives nurses to do what they do? We took a walk in one nurse’s shoes to get a better understanding of what makes her truly remarkable.

Emily Danz of Fort Lee, New Jersey, grew up watching her Yiayia (“grandmother” in Greek), battle heart disease. As a child, she listened with curiosity and amazement as the doctors explained cardiac procedures and outcomes to her family.

The Emperor of the Seas.

Imagine retiring early and spending the rest of your life on a cruise ship visiting exotic locations, meeting interesting people and eating delectable food. It sounds fantastic, but surely it’s a billionaire’s fantasy, right?

Not according to Angelyn Burk, 53, and her husband Richard. They’re living their best life hopping from ship to ship for around $44 a night each. The Burks have called cruise ships their home since May 2021 and have no plans to go back to their lives as landlubbers. Angelyn took her first cruise in 1992 and it changed her goals in life forever.

“Our original plan was to stay in different countries for a month at a time and eventually retire to cruise ships as we got older,” Angelyn told 7 News. But a few years back, Angelyn crunched the numbers and realized they could start much sooner than expected.

It takes a special type of person to become a nurse. The job requires a combination of energy, empathy, clear mind, oftentimes a strong stomach, and a cheerful attitude. And while people typically think of nursing in a clinical setting, some nurses are driven to work with the people that feel forgotten by society.

Ah, the Goodwill. Thrifting has become even more part of American culture since Macklemore’s mega hit “Thrift Shop” was released 10 years ago. You can find just about anything you want, from formal dresses to large furniture items and antiques. Walking out of a thrift store with goodies haphazardly thrown into crinkled recycled plastic bags makes you feel like you’ve just struck the jackpot, but for one woman, a jackpot is exactly what she struck. In 2018, art collector, Laura Young of Austin, Texas, was doing her usual thrift store run to look for hidden gems when she stumbled across a sculpture. The sculpture caught her eye, especially since she looks for undervalued or rare art pieces while thrifting. The sculpture was a steal at $34.99, so taking it home was a no-brainer.

Dr. Alicia Jeffrey-Thomas teaches you how to pee.

A pelvic floor doctor from Boston, Massachusetts, has caused a stir by explaining that something we all thought was good for our health can cause real problems. In a video that has more than 5.8 million views on TikTok, Dr. Alicia Jeffrey-Thomas says we shouldn’t go pee “just in case.”

How could this be? The moment we all learned to control our bladders we were also taught to pee before going on a car trip, sitting down to watch a movie or playing sports.

The doctor posted the video as a response to TikTok user Sidneyraz, who made a video urging people to go to the bathroom whenever they get the chance. Sidneyraz is known for posting videos about things he didn’t learn until his 30s. "If you think to yourself, 'I don't have to go,' go." SidneyRaz says in the video. It sounds like common sense but evidently, he was totally wrong, just like the rest of humanity.
