Gwyneth Paltrow thinks comparing Goop to other female celebrity lifestyle brands is, well… poop.
Lately, several A-list actresses have been launching companies that reflect their personality and taste.

Reese Witherspoon has Draper James, Blake Lively has Preserve, and Jessica Alba has The Honest Company.
So what does Miz Paltrow think about all of this?
She believes it's silly to compare all four, which are so different from each other!
In an interview with TIME Magazine which drops on Friday, The Royal Tenenbaums star SLAMS the media for lumping any and all female-driven ventures!
The 42-year-old exclaimed:
"This is a very interesting question, because I wonder if George Clooney would be asked about Puff Daddy's ancillary liquor line. I'm fascinated how the media in particular are so confounded by entrepreneurial women doing something outside of their box."
In fact, she highlights how distinctive each enterprise is!
"Jessica [Alba], especially, who's a friend of mine—our businesses could not be more different. There's not a lifestyle piece to her business. The fundamentals of our sites are very different. Reese launched—our businesses have similarities, but hers has retail. People are grasping at straws to tie us together and I get it, because it makes a good story, but I'm slightly offended by this sort of generalization that happens with myself and Jessica and Reese and Blake. Yes, there are similarities. But there aren't stories in TIME written saying, "Wow, look at Arnold Schwarzenegger, who did x, y, and z!"'
Preach the truth girl!
The mother of two even thinks making such juxtapositions is absolutely sexist!
"I feel there's something slightly misogynistic about it."
However, does the blonde bombshell even have a tint of jealousy regarding the success of these different projects?
Not at all!
"I'm friends with [Jessica and Reese] and I speak to both of them and I want to do everything I can to support their businesses… I feel very proud when Jessica was on the cover of Forbes. I think that's amazing. You can quantitatively say, "Look what she's done, she's been able to conceive of a business and scale it to that size, in that amount of time."'
Gwyneth is definitely a girl's girl!
