Gwyneth Paltrow: I’m close to the common woman
Forget the conscious uncoupling, colon cleanses, homeopathic silver room sprays and bee venom therapy - Gwyneth Paltrow says she’s close to “the common woman.”
The Oscar-winning actress has occasionally been ridiculed since debuting her lifestyle website GOOP in 2008, which promotes strange beauty treatments, expensive clothing and unusual diets. But in an interview with CNN Money, Paltrow says she can still relate to the average non-celebrity.
“I'm incredibly close to the common woman,” Paltrow says. “In that I'm a woman and I'm a mother…We all are in a physical body with beating hearts, with compassion and love."
Although GOOP has become influential when it comes to food, fashion, and beauty, she tells CNN she doesn’t consider herself a lifestyle guru.
"I see myself as an actor and a mother and as an entrepreneur," she said. "I don't see myself as a guru at all, I think that I'm building a lifestyle business. I'm not a guru because I feel like I'm the one asking the questions, you know?”
