The Four Words Gwyneth Paltrow Whispered In Her Accuser's Ear Are A Master Class In How To Quietly Destroy An Enemy

She knew exactly what she was doing.

Gwyneth Paltrow won her trial and a symbolic $1 yesterday after a man claimed she rammed into him on the ski slopes in 2016.

The jury found this man, Terry Sanderson, "100%" at fault for the crash.

That concluded one of the most bizarro trials I've ever seen, because there were a lot of wacky moments!

My top four would have to be "You skied into my fucking back."

Followed by, "Well, I lost a half day of skiing."

I also loved this whole Taylor Swift line of questioning.

Gwyneth Paltrow gets interrogated about whether she’s friends with Taylor Swift during ski accident trial due to her countersuit being $1, the same amount as Taylor’s lawsuit in 2017.

But my absolute favorite was this 4-inch-heels conversation.

Plaintiff’s lawyer: “May I ask how tall you are?” Gwyneth Paltrow: “I’m just under 5'10.” Lawyer: “I am so jealous.” Paltrow: “I think I’m shrinking though.” Lawyer: “I have to wear 4-inch heels just to make it to 5'5.” Paltrow: “Well, they’re very nice.”

I need an entire Ryan Murphy show about her!

Of course the trial had to go out with a bit of a bang.

And by "a bit of a bang," I mean four words.

"I wish you well."

After the verdict was read, Gwyneth was filmed whispering into her accuser's ear.

Gwyneth Paltrow whispered “I wish you well” to Dr. Sanderson, the man who sued her over ski crash, as she left the courtroom with her $1 victory.

The Associated Press reports she said, "I wish you well."

@PopBase Here's that moment:

And just like that, "I wish you well" became a thing.

Oh, the be an impossibly rich woman who just won her civil ski trial suit and whispers, “I wish you well” to the wealthy doctor who tried to grift you 🥹

The perfect send-off.

I’m going to be using “I wish you well” in all my emails from now on

A great merch opportunity.

Only a matter of time before #GwynethPaltrow releases an “I wish you well” Goop candle

A subtle but effective "F-you."

"I wish you well" is white woman for "I hope you get fired from a rocket right into the fucking sun"

The kind of thing you tell an enemy that sticks with them for the rest of their life.

Let’s normalize whispering “I wish you well” to all the people who have wronged us.

So the next time you want to graciously shit all over someone, just remember "I wish you well."

“I wish you well”. Mic drop 🎤
