Gwyneth Paltrow: “Who Gives a Sh*t” About Haters?
Gwyneth Paltrow could not care less about her haters. She opens up to Red magazine, saying, “This is the thing, it’s like the older I get I realize it doesn’t matter what people who don’t know you think. It doesn’t matter. You’re wasting your energy.”
Paltrow explains, “It’s like, if your partner comes to you – or your best friend – and says, ‘Listen, I want to talk about something you did that hurt me, or I think you could improve,’ sit down and listen to what they have to say. But some friend of so-and–sos – it’s like, who gives a sh*t?”
“And for me, obviously, I have it on a very large, global scale,” continues the actress. “I don’t have it in the village gossip way; but it’s the same thing. That’s why I really don’t read anything. Because if it’s important, it filters down to me.” Of course, it is reported that Vanity Fair is planning to publish a false story about Paltrow cheating in an upcoming issue.
As for her business aspirations, Paltrow tells Red she is not necessarily angling to be the next Oprah Winfrey. “No, not the next Oprah,” says the star. “But I do think the idea is to grow [lifestyle venture] Goop in a number of ways. There’s the issue, which is information and community, there’s our stores, which is our edit of whatever and the collaborations, and Goop kitchen is recipes and could even be a physical location at some point.” Paltrow says, “My dream would be to have somewhere like [a Goop spa]. A center where you could go and have the best people, and detox and reboot and start afresh. I’d love to get to that point one day.”
