Gwyneth Paltrow is officially the bravest woman on Earth, as she has publicly admitted that she toilet-papered Arnold Schwarzenegger’s house as a child. The admission came during an appearance on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live on Monday, which was Halloween night. During her appearance, she discussed her life and career, as well as her Halloween traditions, during which she implied her toilet paper vandalism on Arnold’s house stemmed from a candy dispute.

Dressed as “Gwynnie the Pooh,” Gwyneth Paltrow talked about the fact that she doesn’t give out candy on Halloween – as kids don’t come by – and then discussed her experiences as a child going trick-or-treating around her childhood home in Santa Monica. She then said that True Lies star Arnold Schwarzenegger lived on her street, so as a kid, she and her friends would go by his house on Halloween, but he never gave out candy as far as she knew, because she never remembered him giving out any. “But he’s Austrian, so maybe they don’t celebrate there,” she reasoned.

She then admitted that she and her friends toilet-papered his house when she was young, an admission that shocked and impressed Kimmel. “You can tell everybody: ‘We got the Terminator’s house!’ Wow. Sounds like you have some making up to do,” Kimmel said. “I do,” she said.

“We did it…just being naughty kids,” she admitted.

When pressed over whether Schwarzenegger was aware she was the one who toilet-papered him, she seemed to wise up, and then clam up. “Don’t tell him!” she insisted, without naming her co-conspirators at the time or saying whether they were also the children of celebrities. She also admitted to TP’ing other houses on her street, although her particular victims were unnamed. Among her other admissions was her reveal that her favorite candy is Good & Plenty, a brand that doesn’t have many fans.

The self-proclaimed lifestyle guru, who founded the wellness company Goop in 2008, just turned 50, and celebrated by painting herself gold and posing nude (with her pose carefully covering the naughty bits) in an Instagram post. She admits to finding it harder to do that sort of thing, so she has sworn off nude photoshoots from now on.

Paltrow is the daughter of the late Bruce Paltrow and actress Blythe Danner, and even though she won an Academy Award in 1999 for Best Actress for the movie Shakespeare in Love, she is best known for playing Pepper Potts in the Marvel Cinematic Universe films. Her other credits include Glee, Contagion, Emma, and Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow, although she recently implied she may be done with acting.

For the record, Austrians do not celebrate Halloween in an American way, but do celebrate Seleenwoche, or “All Souls Week,” to remember those who who passed. However, in a recent Instagram post, Schwarzenegger is seen carving a pumpkin with friend Sylvester Stallone, with the caption “Happy Halloween.”

Now that the Halloween season is behind us, and the Christmas season is looming large, we should point out that Gwyneth Paltrow’s Goop Annual Holiday Guide is out now, should you feel the need to order vagina-scented candles to give out to family and friends.
