To all the timid folk thinking they can’t be simultaneously fierce, here’s something that should summon your inner beast: Gwyneth Paltrow said her bestie Beyoncé is actually shy, Just Jared reports. While this isn’t the first time we’ve heard that Bey feels shy in public (um, how is this even possible?), hearing it from her BFF’s mouth makes it a little more believable. Not that what Paltrow said about Bey is accurate or insincere, but how the hell can Beyoncé be a superhero and be shy at the same damn time?

That’s mind-boggling, but after reading Paltrow’s Harper’s Bazaar interview, we’re even more eager to belong to the Beyoncé’s official formation of friends.

SAME, GWEN. We too remain perpetually blown away by the epic entity that is Beyoncé-turned-Sasha Fierce. Except we don’t know Bey personally, so we’ll probably never relate to forgetting that she’s…well, Beyoncé.

We’re still struggling to accept Beyoncé is really shy, but this isn’t the first time something about her has completely blown our minds and we’re certain it won’t be the last.
