Gwyneth Paltrow sent up by Busy Philipps over ‘iconic’ ski collision trial quote
Busy Philipps has poked fun at Gwyneth Paltrow as the actor’s ski accident trial continues.
Paltrow was giving her testimony in court in Park City, Utah, after being accused of crashing into Terry Sanderson on a ski slope in 2016. Paltrow alleges that it was Sanderson who crashed into her.
While on the stand during the trial on Friday (24 March), Paltrow was asked about the “losses” she suffered following the alleged incident. She responded: “Well, we lost half a day of skiing.”
Paltrow’s quote has been widely roasted on social media. One such person who sent up the response was Dawson’s Creek star Philipps.
Sharing a photo on Instagram alongside actor Jen Tullock, Philipps, who was holding up a cocktail, used Paltrow’s quote as the caption.
Others have also poked fun at the quote, with many social media users branding the response “iconic”.
Sanderson, 76, claims that he was left with “permanent traumatic brain injury, four broken ribs, pain, suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, emotional distress and disfigurement” in the aftermath of the alleged collision.
He is seeking more than $300,000 (£244,000) in damages.
Meanwhile, Paltrow’s team has countersued for $1 (82p), as well as legal fees, and will argue that Sanderson is attempting to exploit the actor and Goop founder’s fame and wealth.
This week, Paltrow’s defence will begin its case, with her team planning on calling her children Moses and Apple, whose father is Coldplay singer Chris Martin, to testify.
