Movie beauty Gwyneth Paltrow warns fans to ignore "c***py tabloids" - because they're a "waste of time".

The OSCAR-winner advises people should spend their time reading intelligent literature instead.

Gwyneth says, "Our culture right now is totally celebrity obsessed, which is too bad because it's such a waste of time.

"I think people should read a good book instead of c***py tabloids. It just kills brain cells as far as I'm concerned.

"So I guess they need to fill the pages, so they need another picture of me walking down the street in sweat pants with a yoga mat. God knows why, but they need to follow me 24 hours a day to do that."
