Playing Gwyneth Paltrow Skips Met Gala to Hang with Daughter -- See the Pic

Gwyneth Paltrow had better things to do on Monday night than show up for an event she once said "sucked."

Rather than attending New York's star-studded 2015 Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute Gala, the 42-year-old actress instead spent some quality time with her 10-year-old daughter, Apple, and was sure to call out the fact that she was not on the exclusive red carpet.

"This was the red carpet in my house last night," Paltrow captioned an Instagram photo of Apple on Tuesday.

Back in 2013, Paltrow declared to USA Today that she would never attend the Met Gala again. "I'm never going again. It was so un-fun," she told the newspaper. "It was boiling. It was too crowded. I did not enjoy it at all." So far, she's stuck to her word.

When asked to elaborate about her negative feelings toward the fashion event, the Iron Man actress told Australian radio hosts Kyle and Jackie O, "Do you want me to be honest? It sucked!"

She added, "You always think, 'Oh my god, it's gonna be so glamorous and amazing and you're going to see all these people,' and then you get there and it's so hot and it's so crowded and everyone's pushing you."

She later backtracked a bit. "The Met Ball, at NYC's Metropolitan Museum of Art, is always the year's most elaborate display of incredible fashion and this year was no different," the Oscar winner wrote on her lifestyle site Goop in 2013
