Gwyneth Paltrow loves Blue Ivy and having pals in the public eye

Gwyneth Paltrow is pals with Beyonce and Jay Z -- but she love love loves their daughter Blue Ivy

For Gwyneth Paltrow, one particular friendship means never having to be the most famous person in the room. 

The "Mortdecai" actress revealed a couple of the perks of her friendship with Bey and J while sitting down Thursday night with Andy Cohen on Bravo's "Watch What Happens Live."

"The greatest perk of being their friend," she said of Beyonce and Jay Z, "is that I have a relationship with people who are also, who have similar -- I mean, obviously I'm not as famous or successful as they are, but I do have a life in the public eye, and I have people to sort of walk through life with in that capacity. And they're very kind and loving people."

There's one other little perk too -- one that's only 3 years old.

"It also means I get to be around their daughter, who I love so freaking much," Paltrow enthused. 

The Oscar winner described Blue Ivy Carter as "a powerhouse" who's "the boss of everything."

As a bonus, "She can do all the choreography to Sia's 'Chandelier,' even though she's only 3 years old, and she's super smart," the actress added. 

While you ponder the possibility of Blue Ivy dancing around in a platinum blond wig, we'll be off pondering who else is the more famous and successful: the Goop founder or the toddler.
