'SNL': Gwyneth Paltrow Cameos as Goop "Supervisor" Baffled by Products
Gwyneth Paltrow dropped by the "Weekend Update" desk during this week's installment of NBC's Saturday Night Live to poke some fun at her own lifestyle company Goop.
Castmember Heidi Gardner reprised her Goop staffer character Baskin Johns, appearing alongside the actual Paltrow, who played Baskin's supervisor, Fifer James, in order to hawk the company's extravagant products. Fifer noted that Paltrow "doesn't believe in firing" and calls it "conscious unemploying," a reference to Paltrow's divorce announcement in 2016 in which she said that she was "consciously uncoupling" from Chris Martin. Gardner's Baskin referred to Paltrow as "Queen Gwy."
Paltrow's Fifer promoted a Himalayan salt scrub and called salt "angry sugar."
When asked what Goop stands for, the pair said in unison, "Gwyneth Opens Our Paychecks."
