Gwyneth Paltrow is reacting to being named the “Most Hated Celebrity” back in 2013, and her response is making headlines!
“First of all, I was like, ‘I’m the most hated celebrity? More than, like, Chris Brown?’ What did I do?” Gwyneth asked Stephen Sackur, host of BBC News’ Hard Talk, earlier this month (via E! News).
“I see where you are coming from, but maybe you just make people feel bad sometimes,” Stephen said.
“All I can do is be my authentic self, and if you know me, then you know who I am, and that I have fun and eat and am so appreciative for my life. But I think there are things about me that make people draw conclusions,” Gwyneth added.
“My parents did well, and I was able to go to a fantastic school, and we grew up in New York City, but the minute I left my college to try to pursue acting, my father was really supportive. But he said, you know, ‘You are completely on your own.’ So, he never gave me anything. I never had any supplementation, he never helped me with my rent, I never had a trust fund. So the idea that I am spoiled or that I didn’t work for what I have is just not accurate, but I can see how somebody might have that perception.” Gwyneth continued, “People tend to think that I eat just seaweed and a bit of air. I have never had a horrible experience with French fries. French fries are my life!”
FYI: Chris Brown came in at number 20 on the list.
