Gwyneth Paltrow gave testimony in a ski crash trial where she is countersuing Terry Sanderson over a 2016 incident, in which he sued her for $3.1 million for alleged brain injuries and four broken ribs.

Gwyneth Paltrow, the founder of Goop, appeared in court for her ski crash trial on March 24, and her testimony was highly publicized due to her unusual statements. The collision took place during a family vacation at the Deer Valley Resort in Park City, Utah, in 2016, and involved retired doctor Terry Sanderson, who later sued the “Shakespeare in Love” actress for $3.1 million in damages. Paltrow countersued for symbolic damages and attorney fees in February 2019.

During the trial, the Oscar winner reflected on the incident and claimed that the collision left her with only “half a day of skiing” lost, downplaying the severity of the accident. Paltrow also apologized for her use of foul language when telling Sanderson he had skied into her “f–king back,” although she argued it was not a term in her usual vocabulary.

The testimony was not just about the crash, as Paltrow also shared her thoughts on other topics. She mentioned her friendship with Taylor Swift, but clarified that they were not close friends and had only attended one of her concerts together. Paltrow’s height also came up as she revealed that she was “just under 5 ft 10,” but believed she was shrinking.

The most notable statement made by the actress during the trial was when she claimed she thought the crash was a sexual assault. She said, “I was skiing and two skis came between my skis, forcing my legs apart. And then there was a body pressing against me. It was a quick thought that went through my head. There was a strange grunting noise and a body behind me, so I was trying to make sense of what was going on. My mind was going very quickly.”

Overall, Paltrow’s ski crash trial made headlines due to both her testimony and the viral quotes that were released to the media. Although the trial is expected to run until March 30, the actress has already shared her version of events and made sure to leave an impact on those who were following the proceedings.
