During a brand new chat with the New York Times, Gwyneth Paltrow talked about, among other things, the fact that the press once called her the ‘most hated celebrity.’ She started by confessing that she wanted a third child while still with Chris Martin before they ended ‘consciously uncoupling’ back in 2014.
Apparently, that term really ticked off a lot of people, to the point that she was named ‘most hated’ in the industry that year.
She explained that when she used that term, ‘I was really saying we are in a lot of pain, we failed at this; we are going to try and do it in a different way. But I was so raw that I did not anticipate. I think that was an instance where it hit me that an insouciance with language from me is different than from somebody else.’
When the tabloids dubbed her as the most hated celeb ‘I remember being like, ‘Really? More than, like, Chris Brown? Me? Really? Wow.’ It was also on the same week that I was People’s Most Beautiful Woman. For a minute I was like, ‘Wait, I do not understand. Am I hated to the bone or am I the world’s most beautiful?’’
Paltrow has been through a lot in her life and career which helped her grow thick skin.
Still, she knew it was time to press pause on her Hollywood career and focus on her company, Goop, for a change.
Gwyneth explained that she really loved acting, but it felt frustrating to have no true control over her job, depending on other people to get a project when with Goop, she was the boss.
