When it comes to making a celebrity uncomfortable, Howard Stern can’t resist. So when Gwyneth Paltrow stopped by recently, he prodded her about her upcoming wedding to producer Brad Fulchak. Noting that Paltrow eloped when she married her first husband, Coldplay frontman Chris Martin, Stern wanted to know if Fulchak and Paltrow would blow it out.
Though she neither confirmed nor denied having a big wedding, Paltrow said the couple’s engagement party was a big to-do. In attendance was Kate Hudson, Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Richie, Jennifer Aniston, Cameron Diaz, and “like, 300 normal people,” according to Paltrow.
When Diaz’s name was mentioned, Stern perked up. “I like her,” he said, before asking, “Is she fun? Like she’ll smoke some weed and chill out?” To which Paltrow nervously laughed. Sensing an opening, Stern inquired further, asking, “Are you smoking any weed?”
“Sometimes,” Paltrow admitted. “It’s legal now in California!”
Paltrow later added, “We weren’t smoking pot, though. Not at the engagement party.”

Considering Paltrow posted an Instagram from the luncheon in which she donned laced panties atop her head, we might beg to differ.
In an interview with Esther Perel from The Sunday Times, Paltrow admitted her past romantic relationships have lacked “a certain level of intimacy and communication, revealing, “Now, for the first time, I feel I’m in an adult relationship that is sometimes uncomfortable because he sort of demands a certain level of intimacy and communication that I haven’t been held to before. What came up in the first couple of years of our relationship was how incapable I was in this realm, how I feared intimacy and communication.”
