Ms Paltrow said: "I was skiing and two skis came between my skis and separated my legs, then my body leaned against me and there was a strange whimper.

However, Mr. Sanderson and his legal team have presented a different account, claiming that the award-winning actress controls it”. collided with him during a rookie race, "smashing him violently, dropping him and causing concussions, four broken ribs and other serious injuries.

Ms. Paltrow's behavior after the incident was then the subject of many questions from Mr. Sanderson's attorneys, who asked her why she would yell at the 76-year-old if she wanted to "hold back."She replied, "I felt injured. I was angry. I was worried about my knee.

""I felt uncomfortable when someone pressed their body against my back and I'm sorry I cursed.Ms Paltrow, when asked if she asked about Sanderson's injuries from the accident, said, "I think you have to remember that when you have an accident ... Psychology doesn't necessarily have to think about the person who did it.

"She added that she thought Sanderson's injuries were "very minor during the day." The actress later denied the testimony of one of Sanderson's acquaintances, Greg Ramone, who claimed he saw Mrs Paltrow collide with Sanderson on the tracks on. "I don't know if he knows he's lying, but I'll tell you Unfortunately, what he said is not true,” he said.
