Don’t hate Gwyneth Paltrow because she’s beautiful!
The actress is well aware she isn’t always painted in a flattering light by the media, and she has a good idea as to why that is.
No, it isn’t for using terms like “conscious uncoupling” to describe her divorce from Chris Martin, or her hypocritical stance on attending glamorous events like the Met Gala. (Those don’t help, of course.)
The 44-year-old thinks her haters assembled after founding luxury lifestyle website Goop!
Speaking to The Edit for her cover story, Gwynnie explained:
“It’s got a few layers to it. People were fine with me as an actress, but with Goop it was like, ‘Stay in your lane.’ Women in general get a lot of pushback, especially if you’re successful and attractive.”
LOL, and she thinks Goop is the reason she has so many haters?
Before changing topics, Gwyneth made sure to point out that SHE doesn’t think she’s attractive, but is merely categorized as a bombshell by society, adding:
“I’m not saying I’m attractive. I mean when you’re considered attractive.”
Way to save yourself on that one! LOLz!
The Oscar winner is all about spinning negatives into positives these days, ever since she took control over her divorce by putting her children first. She explained:
“I wanted to turn my divorce into a positive. What if I didn’t blame the other person for anything, and held myself 100 percent accountable? What if I checked my own shit at the door and put my children first? And reminded myself about the things about my ex-husband that I love, and fostered the friendship? What I put myself through to get there was the most difficult thing I’ve ever done in my life.”
It’s not easy making a separation seem successful and attractive, but she sure pulled it off.
As for coining “conscious uncoupling,” Gwyneth says she never minded being mocked for the “dorky” term — as people are now starting to use it. She added:
“People are coming around. I know it’s a dorky term, but it’s very worthwhile. I’m always the person who gets shit at first, but then later people say, ‘Hey, maybe that’s a good idea.’ I don’t mind.”
Another Paltronian success story — don’t hate her for it!
