Gwyneth Paltrow is roasted by Busy Philipps as the internet goes wild over THAT viral quote

Gwyneth Paltrow has been roasted by the internet after a quote from her ongoing ski accident trial went viral.

The 50-year-old actress has been on trial in Utah over the past several days after being sued by retired optometrist Terry Sanderson for a 2016 ski collision.

During one of the trial days, Paltrow took the stand in court to testify when she was asked about the ‘losses’ she herself suffered from the accident. She then responded with the now infamous line, ‘Well, we lost half a day of skiing.’

Since then, the actress has been the subject of viral reactions to the statement by both fans and other stars, including Busy Philipps.

The White Chicks star, 43, posted a selfie on her Instagram account with fellow actress Jen Tullock and used Gwyneth’s quote as her caption.

In response to someone tweeting a clip of the video with the words, ‘This trial is fully an Adderall talk to a Xanax, another person had the amusing idea to start working up Halloween ideas for the upcoming season.

‘I need to find a way of making “well, I lost half a day of skiing” into a Halloween costume this year.’

One twitter-goer shared a picture of the video game character Mario clutching his chest in pain and wrote above it, ‘Gwyneth Paltrow after losing half a day of skiing.’

There was also one response to her statement that said: ‘”well I lost half a day of skiing…” she’s so mother it’s insane.’

Sanderson sued the actress for $3.1 million in 2019, accusing her of colliding with him on a ski slope at the Deer Valley Resort in Park City, Utah, in 2016 and causing him to have a permanent traumatic brain injury.

The actress countersued Sanderson and claimed that he crashed into her on the ski slope.

Paltrow also asked for $1 in damages and charged the repayment of her legal fees from the plaintiff.

The Seven actress also sparked more hilarious internet reactions after drawing a comparison to serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer for her choice of eyeglasses on a previous court day.
