Gwyneth Paltrow does not want to be compared to other actresses with their own businesses and she has called out a journalist’s question about it as being misogynistic.
The 42-year-old actress was asked by Time if she looks at the websites of Jessica Alba‘s The Honest Company, Reese Witherspoon‘s Draper James, and Blake Lively‘s Preserve.
“This is a very interesting question, because I wonder if George Clooney would be asked about Puff Daddy‘s ancillary liquor line,” she said. “I’m fascinated how the media in particular are so confounded by entrepreneurial women doing something outside of their box.”
“Jessica, especially, who’s a friend of mine—our businesses could not be more different. There’s not a lifestyle piece to her business. The fundamentals of our sites are very different. Reese launched—our businesses have similarities, but hers has retail,” Gwyneth added. “People are grasping at straws to tie us together and I get it, because it makes a good story, but I’m slightly offended by this sort of generalization that happens with myself and Jessica and Reese and Blake. Yes, there are similarities. But there aren’t stories in TIME written saying, “Wow, look at Arnold Schwarzenegger, who did x, y, and z!”
“I feel there’s something slightly misogynistic about it,” she continued.
