Actress Gwyneth Paltrow took the podium in the United States of America this Friday, where she stated that she was the victim in the ski accident in question.
“Master [Terry] Sanderson categorically beat me on that hill,” Paltrow said when asked by the actor’s lawyers.
Terry Sanderson, a 76-year-old retired optometrist, accuses Paltrow of hitting him while skiing in Utah’s Deer Valley in 2016, causing him physical and psychological harm.
When questioned by Sanderson’s lawyer, Paltrow admitted to shouting at her after the encounter: “The right to rape my back!”
“When I slipped between my skis, I completely froze,” added Paltrow, who admitted that “for a moment” she thought the attack was sexual.
“Two skis went between my skis, forcing me to open my legs, and then there was a body leaning against me, and a very strange roar,” described the 50-year-old Oscar-winning actress wearing a headscarf. -to-toe black and remained calm for almost two hours with interruptions.
“My brain was trying to figure out what was going on. I thought someone was doing something wrong? It’s very strange.”
“I felt violated, I was terrified,” he said.
– Victims –
Paltrow, who was with her two children and her partner Brad Falchuk, said she left the scene shortly after, but that she did so at the behest of her ski instructor.
“He stayed and filled out the report and made sure Mr. Anderson was all right, and he told me I could go…he knew my daughter was waiting for me at the bottom of the hill.”
The trial began Tuesday in Park City, Utah. In opening statements, Sanderson’s defense said the incident cost him about $3.3 million.
Lawrence D. Buhler, Sanderson’s attorney, said Paltrow’s skiing was “dangerous” and “reckless,” causing his client “four broken ribs and permanent brain damage.”

The “Shakespeare” actress “Impassioned” who lied for money and legal fees has repeatedly denied the right. “It’s better to ski,” he said.
Paltrow acknowledged that she did not ask about Sanderson’s health after the accident.
“I think you understand that when you are the victim of an accident, you don’t necessarily think about the cause,” he said when asked by Sanderson’s lawyer, who must also stand to give his version of events.
Steven Owens, the Hollywood star’s lawyer, said at the start of the trial that Sanderson was “obsessed” with the lawsuit and that the case was an “unsubstantiated allegation.”
Next week, the court will hear testimony from Sanderson, as well as Paltrow’s son, husband and ski instructor.
On the sidelines of her career as a movie star, Paltrow has immersed herself in the industry with her well-known Goop brand, which sells products such as vitamins, diets, and other products such as a line of scented products.
