Gwyneth Paltrow tells court she thought collision on ski slope was a sex assault

Gwyneth Paltrow insists that she was the victim of a ski collision with a retired optometrist at a Utah resort.

Terry Sanderson is suing the actress for $300,000. (PS245,000) in civil court.

Sanderson, now 76, claims he suffered several broken ribs, a severe concussion and mental and physical injuries from Paltrow’s “slam” on him while skiing.

Paltrow 50 is suing for $1 in symbolic value, claiming Mr Sanderson collided.


Paltrow, who spoke in court Friday, stated that she initially believed she was being sexually assaulted by the collision. She said that she felt “a body pressing against my chest” and heard “a strange grunting sound”.

She said she was “very upset” by the incident, and shouted “You skied directly in my f back!” at Mr Sanderson.

Paltrow accused in a’really bad place’ after actress he ‘crashed into’

Claim that a fellow skier collided with her, but it is not ‘plausible because of the accuser’s injuries

Star “never spoke a word” after hitting another skier and running.

She said, “I was confused at the beginning and I didn’t know what was happening.”

It’s very unusual for something to happen on a slope. I was unable to move and I became very upset just a few seconds later.

She said, “[I thought] this is a practical joke?” Is there someone doing something perverse ?…? My mind was racing and I was trying to figure out what was happening.”

Ms Van Orman, Mr Sanderson’s lawyer, tried to get Paltrow involved in reconstructing the courtroom sequence, but she was unsuccessful and had to re-create the events.

Paltrow stated that “I was skiing, and two skis got between my skis. It forced my legs apart.”

“And then, there was a corps pressing against me.”

“Was his jaw grinding or thrusting?” Ms Van Orman questioned. Ms. Van Orman asked, “What made it a sexual assault?”

Paltrow responded: “It was just a quick thought that ran through my head.

“There was a weird grunting sound and a body behind, so I tried to understand what was happening.

“Remember that when you are a victim of a collision, your psychological outlook is not always about the perpetrator.

“Mr Sanderson has hit me, and that is categorically true.”

Paltrow is no stranger to the limelight. She looked comfortable in court

Gwyneth Paltrow may be familiar to the limelight, but this was a completely different prospect. She testified in a legal battle that has been ongoing for over seven years.

Terry Sanderson and she have totally different versions of the events at Deer Valley ski resort’s accident in February 2016.

He claims he skied into her back from above, and she says that he drove into her like Godzilla from behind.

Due to their differing accounts, it is likely that one of them is lying or misremembering what actually happened. The jury will decide.

Paltrow, for her part, looked relaxed even as Sanderson interrogated her. Sanderson did compliment her on her shoes choice at one point.

Her own lawyer cross-examined her, and she smiled and laughed as they talked about her ex-husband Chris Martin, Coldplay’s lead singer, and Brad Falchuk, her new partner.

Her lawyer stated that they expected to call her children Apple and Moses, of whom Paltrow is fiercely protective, to testify next week.

Later, Paltrow, who was being cross-examined by Stephen Owens, stated that she felt “very sorry for” Mr Sanderson.

She said, “I truly feel very sorry for him.”

“It appears that he has had a very difficult and stressful life, but I didn’t cause the accident, so I can’t be held responsible for what happened to him.”

Next week, Mr Sanderson will testify.
