Oscar-winning actress Gwyneth Paltrow has shocked her fans by attacking her late German grandmother for being “mean as hell” and full of hate.

Speaking to talk show host Chelsea Handler, the 38-year-old US actress let rip after discovering they both had grannies hailing from Germany.

“Mine was a c**t,” Paltrow said during the interview, with the profanity beeped out. “She just hated my guts, basically, and she tried to poison my mother against me.”

Paltrow and Handler said their grandmothers both went by the moniker “Mutti,” which is German for “Mommy.”

“She must not have been very happy and she must have had a lot of pain because she was as mean as hell,” she said.

Handler responded with the jibe: “She was a German and they have a lot to feel bad about.”
