Gwyneth Paltrow Charges $2,000 to Meet Fans
Good for Gwyneth Paltrow! Her $2,000 meet and greet in New York has sold out. The Iron Man 3 star - who recently released her second cook book It's All Good - launched an exclusive offer on Groupon.com on Tuesday (14 May), inviting 60 super fans to splash out on an "epic trip" to New York on June 14, during which she will give a private cooking class, and it sold out in less than 24 hours.
As well as tickets to the 40-year-old actress's VIP event, the package also included a round-trip airfare from anywhere in the U.S. or Canada to New York, airport transfers, two nights at a Hilton hotel, spa treatments and dinner at a upmarket French restaurant in the city.
Billed as an exclusive event for fans of her lifestyle blog goop.com, Gwyneth's promotional ad read: "You and a friend are invited to the private goop event, which begins at 6 p.m. on Friday, June 14. You can munch on appetizers and sip cocktails before goop editor-in-chief Gwyneth Paltrow gives a cooking demonstration. You'll leave with a signed cookbook.
"Not only will you meet Gwyneth, you'll also dine at the Bistro La Promenade restaurant, get the star treatment at Great Jones Spa, and catch 40 winks stay at the 4-star DoubleTree by Hilton Metropolitan New York."
Gwyn, who was crowned the World's Most Beautiful Woman by People magazine last month, recently revealed she hopes to open her own restaurant to share her favourite healthy recipes.
The mother-of-two, who has daughter, Apple, nine, and son Moses, eight, with her husband Chris Martin, previously said: "I would make a Californian pop-up restaurant in London with all the healthy salads from the book and tuna burgers, salmon burgers and tacos."
