If we told you Gwyneth Paltrow offered a Goop Groupon for $2,000, would you be interested? What if we told you the Groupon Experience would get you into a private Goop event and include two nights in a New York City hotel, spa treatments, dinner at the French restaurant Bistro La Promenade and private cooking lessons from the 40-year-old Iron Man 3 actress? Yeah, it sounds like a pretty good deal to us, too.
Not surprisingly, Paltrow's Groupon deal sold out pretty quickly. Considering the success of this offering, perhaps she'll hold a similar event in the future. Better yet, maybe this will inspire other celebrities to offer similar hangouts on Groupon. Here are five stars we'd pay just about any amount of money to spend time with.
Come on -- who wouldn't pony up to get a day or two of sage advice from the Queen Bey? Beyonce's new Beyhive Blog already gives us an inside look into her life and interests, but it would be fascinating to get some face time with Mrs. Carter. Plus, we're sure she has plenty of food, exercise and mommy advice to share.
Ryan Gosling is taking some time off from Hollywood, which means there's no better opportunity for him to get some face time with fans. We all know he loves Disneyland, so why not offer a special Groupon deal for a Disneyland retreat with the former Mouseketeer? We would pay handsomely to cozy up to him in one of the Matterhorn's bobsleds.
This Groupon would be more to sate our curiosity than anything else. We've long been curious about what a day in the life of Amanda Bynes is like, and a Groupon hangout could be the perfect way to find out. We could all get naked in a tanning salon, walk around Times Square and get cheek piercings -- or whatever it is she's doing these days.
Maybe hanging out with Justin Bieber would help humanize the 19-year-old after his recent string of weird behavior. It should at least show people just how much crazy fan stuff he has to deal with on a daily basis, which might allow people to respect his business a bit more.
Like Gosling, Jennifer Lawrence is one of the coolest kids in Hollywood. You know she would plan the best Groupon hangout ever! We'd call it a win if she held a comedy class and explained to the select few who managed to snag the deal how she manages to remain so hilarious -- and honest -- all the time.
