Gwyneth Paltrow jokes about ‘doing cocaine and not getting caught’ and stumbling home with ‘hikes’

Gwyneth Paltrow gave some pretty wild anecdotes about drug use and bringing home random men during an episode of The Late Late Show with James Corden.

The 50-year-old opened up about how much fun it was to be famous and mean AND to get away with it before the social media era in Monday’s episode.

She laughed, “That was awesome, talk about doing cocaine and not getting caught. You could just be in a bar having fun, dancing on the table.

“There were no camera phones, especially in New York, there were no paparazzi. You could stumble out of a bar and hike home a bit and no one would know.

Gwyneth also thanked James for once bringing her son Moses home.

“We only talked about music,” James said.

‘He got out of the car and me and Jules [James’ wife] were like ‘well, he’s the coolest person I think we’ve ever met’.
