The former BFFs cut ties cold turkey after Paltrow supposedly stole her Oscar-winning role in "Shakespeare in Love" from Ryder. In one of her weekly "GOOP" newsletters, Paltrow wrote about how an unnamed "frenemy" turned out to be "venomous" and "hellbent on taking me down" and that she was secretly happy when something "unfortunate and humiliating" happened to this person. There was immediate speculation that Ryder was the woman in the riddle, since she was publicly ridiculed after being arrested for shoplifting in 2001.
