Is Gwyneth Paltrow looking forward to next year’s Met Ball? Probably not. The Iron Man 3 actress told USA Today that she will never return to the “un-fun” fête after the dramatics of this year’s punk-themed ceremony. “You always think, ‘oh my God this is going to be so glamorous and amazing’ and then you get there and it’s so hot, it’s so crowded, everyone is pushing you,” Paltrow added during a radio interview. “This year it was really intense, it wasn’t fun.” That last part spoke specifically to Kanye West, a mutual friend and Met Ball performer, who Paltrow says “was furious” during his moody performance.
