Take that, Gwyneth Paltrow. Former British boy bander Robbie Williams made a fool of himself when he called her daughter with Coldplay singer Chris Martin the wrong name. He recounted the story to a reporter in GQ recalling, "Recently the two of them were over at my house for a party. Gwyneth came over to me with her kiddo and I asked, 'Does little melon like an apple?' So embarrassing! I mixed it up!" But then the "Candy" singer added insult to injury when he blamed Paltrow and Martin for his blunder, saying, "But that happens if you have a stupid name like that. You should save your child from that." Williams and wife Ayda Field welcomed their daughter Theodora "Teddy" Rose last month. Williams continued to discuss his problem with the quirky name game explaining. "If you don't call your child Michael or Peter or Julia there will only be celebrity names left and they are all stupid." Although the 38-year-old heartthrob's comments probably left a bad taste in the mouths of Apple's parents, WIlliams likely didn't give it a second thought. He's long maintained his distaste for his fellow celebrities. Williams, who recently moved from Los Angeles back to the U.K., has said, "I never watch shows in which actors appear. Only reality shows. I lived in Hollywood for 10 years surrounded by actors and I can tell you, they're all real a**holes."
