Many people dislike Gwyneth Paltrow and People magazine naming her its Most Beautiful Woman in the World didn’t help matters any. Well Gweny doesn’t care about what people who don’t know her have to say about her. She went on a little mini-rant in a new interview she did with Red magazine.
“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. 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 s—? And for me, obviously, I have it on a very large, global scale. 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.”
Paltrow also thinks that women shouldn’t judge other women.
“Nobody else can tell [a woman] how many hours a week she needs to devote to this, that or the other … F— what anybody else says … It doesn’t matter what anyone else thinks. That’s what we’ve got to let go of. That idea of ‘Oh god, if I don’t show up to this concert, all the other mums are going to think I’m terrible.’ Well, so f—ing what.”
Gwyneth says she doesn’t know if she wants to have more kids but she’s moving her kids back to London, from Los Angeles, in two or three years because she doesn’t want her kids to be teenagers in LA.
On her goals: ”My dream would be to have somewhere like [a 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.”
I’ve always defended, and liked, Gwyneth. I hear she’s great in person and I love a strong, confident woman. I don’t mind that she’s a bit of an elitist. She comes from privilege and that’s what she relates to. I like that she’s opinionated and really cares about fasting and exercising and facials and talking about her pubic hair. She’s never been concerned about what other people say and I think that’s great!
