Gwyneth Paltrow: Canned cheese? I'd rather smoke crack

Hide the canned cheese from Gwyneth Paltrow, or things could get ugly.

The 38-year-old actress/foodie turned up at the iTunes festival in London on Tuesday to talk cooking and good eats, and after avoiding questions from interviewer Jonathan Ross about husband Chris Martin, she explained that she doesn’t let her kids go anywhere near McDonald’s.

“I take them to Pizza Express because I think that’s much healthier,” she told Ross, according to the Daily Mirror. “Don’t tell them there are toys!”

Gwyneth Paltrow joins 'Glee' on stage in London

As promised, Gwyneth Paltrow popped up at the "Glee Live!" show at the summer tour's London stop on Wednesday. Lea Michele, who plays Rachel Berry on the show, tweeted earlier that the night's event was "going to be a special one" before she revealed that Paltrow was the surprise.

The 38-year-old had a breakout role on the Fox series as the substitute teacher Holly Holiday, and she joined the "Glee" crew at the O2 arena for another rendition of Cee Lo's "Forget You," as she previously did in New Jersey. According to the Daily Mail, Santana, as played by Naya Rivera, was in the middle of telling the "Glee" crew that she'd been named the sexiest glee club member when Paltrow strolled on stage and challenged her to a sing-off.

Paltrow, who recently joined Twitter, also had a few young ones in tow. "Just took four 7 year olds to glee live london. somebody pass me something vaguely hallucinogenic," she tweeted.

Hopefully they enjoyed her performance as much as this fan, who told the actress/singer on Twitter, "you were SO AMAZING tonight, thank you soooo much!! You have made my life!!!"

Six new writers have been added to the show, The Hollywood Reporter says. Allison Adler, Marti Noxon, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, Michael Hitchcock, Matt Hodgson and Ross Maxwell have joined Ryan Murphy and team to craft story lines for Season 3.

The group of new writers brings quite a pedigree.
