“Jeffrey Dahmer’s glasses!” Gwyneth Paltrow is roasted by her appearance as a ‘serial killer’ on social networks in the middle of her ski test
Gwyneth Paltrow was mocked on social media Tuesday for wearing aviator-style reading glasses to her ski test in Utah that drew comparisons to killer Jeffrey Dahmer.
The 50-year-old actress wore the large glasses along with a cream knit sweater and tweed harem pants during the opening day of a trial in Utah for a 2016 skiing collision involving a retired optometrist.
“Jeffrey Dahmer’s glasses,” one commenter posted in response to a news article showing Gwyneth wearing the glasses.
“I like its serial killer vibe,” read another comment.
Dahmer, also known as the Milwaukee Cannibal, was a serial killer and sex offender who killed and dismembered 17 men and boys between 1978 and 1991 and wore similar glasses in his 1991 mugshot.

“Jeffrey Dahmer meets Gwyneth Paltrow,” read another comment.
‘Gwyneth Paltrow is literally going for the #Dahmer look on this ski accident trail… what? Not quite on the mark for @goop’ another commenter posted.
One humorous post read: “These are exactly the kind of 1980s aviator specs you should wear when sued by a retired optometrist.”
Paltrow and Terry Sanderson, the man who sued her, sat across from each other in a Park City courtroom as their attorneys gave opening statements that provided strikingly different accounts of the accident. Both described their clients as victims and blamed the other for the collision at Deer Valley, one of the most exclusive ski resorts in the country.
The two showed little emotion when lawyers questioned their credibility and version of events on the first day of the trial, which is expected to last eight days. Sanderson’s lawyers said they plan to call Paltrow to the stand to testify Friday, but could do so earlier in the week depending on the availability of other witnesses.
Paltrow shielded her face from photographers by wearing a blue notebook with the initials “GP” on it as she walked in and out of the courtroom. Sanderson was wearing a gray suit and left halfway before witnesses began to testify.
