Gwyneth Paltrow: I Don't Care What Strangers Think About Me!

Gwyneth Paltrow: I Don't Care What Strangers Think About Me!

Gwyneth Paltrow shows off her style on the cover of Red magazine’s December 2013 issue, on newsstands November 6.

Here’s what the 41-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On not caring what people think about her: “This is the thing, it’s like 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 sh*t? 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.”

On if she is the next Oprah: “[Do I see myself as ] the next Oprah? No, not the next Oprah, but I do think the idea is to grow goop in a number of ways… My dream would be to have somewhere like [a spa]. A centre 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.”

On her work/life balance: “When I’m with my kids, I give them everything I have. And when I’m not, I give whatever I’m doing everything I have. And that’s my work/life balance. I’ve made it work for me, but it doesn’t matter what my specific thing is… It doesn’t matter what anyone else thinks. It matters what you think of yourself. And what your children think… So if anyone is going to ask my advice, I’d say, do what is right for you and don’t give a shit what anyone else thinks.”

The full interview appears in the December issue of Red. It was guest-edited by Gwyneth and her team at and will be available on November 6. It will also be available in digital edition on Apple Newsstand.
