Paltrow ‘more focused on Goop than acting’ – Sky News

Gwyneth Paltrow has said she prefers that people no longer “kiss my ass” as she revealed she is more focused on her lifestyle website Goop than her acting career.

The Oscar-winning actress said she had “never felt so professionally fulfilled” working on the weekly publication and that it is taking up the vast majority of her work.

“Right now 100% of my time is on Goop,” she told a crowd at an Airbnb event in Los Angeles on Sunday.

Paltrow started the lifestyle newsletter in 2008, with the aim to “share all of life’s positives” and “nourish the inner aspect”.

Goop employs 60 people – working out of a luxury converted barn in California – and its title derives from the star’s initials.

“I have a responsibility to my team, all of 60 of them now, and my investors. I really want to make a proper go of it,” she said.

Paltrow’s mixture of diet tips and celebrity New Age lifestyle advice has been widely mocked by critics.

Last year, it made headlines for advising its readers to “strengthen their pelvis muscles” by squatting and “peeing in the shower”.

Earlier this year the website recommended a range of sex toys, including a £10,000 24-carat gold-plated dildo.

Other controversial entries include a review of a book by a Buddhist monk praised for its “ability to demystify
mindfulness” and detox recipes which recommend starting the day with a glass of “room-temperature lemon water”.

Paltrow also uses the website to keep fans up to date with the latest twists of celebrity lifestyle, and says she prefers “that no one kisses my ass anymore” now that she spends more time on the publication.

She said: “I had no idea how much I was in a career where everyone kissed my ass and now people are like; ‘F*** you, what’s the bottom line?’

“I have never felt so professionally fulfilled in my life. It’s such a grind, it’s such hard work but it’s so amazing to be involved in something you believe, making a product you love.

“I much prefer it that no one kisses my ass anymore.”

Paltrow refused to reveal which candidate she backed in the US election, but said it was “such an amazing time for entrepreneurship”.

“I think it’s such an exciting time to be an American because we are at this amazing inflection point and everything is kind of up in the air,” she said.

“I took a crazy risk. I had a perfectly good day job,” she added.

“I was scared but I had self-belief.”
