Busy Philipps shades Gwyneth Paltrow’s ‘half day of skiing’ quote

Gwyneth Paltrow is being roasted for her viral quote about losing “half a day of skiing” — and Busy Philipps is getting in on the fun.

One day after the Goop founder’s testimony in her ski crash court case made headlines, Philipps posted a serious Instagram selfie while out for drinks with pal Jen Tullock.

“Well, we lost a half day of skiing,” the “Freaks and Geeks” alum, 43, captioned the Saturday snap with what appeared to be two espresso martinis.

She is countersuing Terry Sanderson over the alleged hit-and-run collision.

Paltrow, 50, has been in court over her and retired doctor Terry Sanderson’s 2016 hit-and-run ski collision since March 21.

The former optometrist sued the Oscar winner in January 2019 for allegedly skiing into him and “causing a brain injury [and] four broken ribs,” with Paltrow filing a countersuit the following month.

The “Shakespeare in Love” star took the stand Friday and alleged that Sanderson was the one to hit her.

When asked whether he “deterred [her] from enjoying what was the rest of a very expensive vacation” in Park City, Utah, she solemnly replied, “Well, I lost half a day of skiing, yes.”

Philipps wasn’t the only one who subsequently roasted the Golden Globe winner for her comment.

“texting all my friends ‘well … I lost half a day of skiing’ next time any minor inconvenience befalls me,” one user tweeted Saturday.

Others joked that Paltrow should receive an Oscar for her performance on the stand, with one proposing a new Ryan Murphy “American Crime Story” series called “I Lost Half a Day of Skiing.”

Many referred to her testimony as “art.”

Paltrow’s husband, Brad Falchuk, and the two children she shares with ex Chris Martin — Apple, 18, and Moses, 16 — are set to take the stand before the trial’s expected March 30 end.
