Yesterday we covered her “brotherly love” with Chris Martin…today? Her MONEY:
Gwyneth Paltrow talked about lots of things in her Glamour interview, which is so GOOP the rest of it’s going to make you sick. That’s why I’m giving you the highlights, including how she wants you to think she’s “down to earth” because she didn’t take money from her parents. Hey Gwyn, you can still be self-made and be insufferable! Read on:
She’s self-made: “People think, ‘She’s just a rich kid.’ Until I was 18, I was. Then I was broke. I’ve never taken a dime off my parents. I’m completely self-made … I went to UC Santa Barbara, and when I quit to try to be an actress, my dad was like, ‘That’s great, but I’m not gonna help you.’ I was like, ‘Yeah, right.’ And he was like, ‘No, I’m not.’ So I got an apartment with a roommate; I worked as a hostess at a restaurant; I would scrounge quarters to buy Starbucks — and walk there to save gas. I remember once asking my dad for money, like, ‘Please, I’m really stuck. Can you help?’ And he said, ‘You’re more than welcome to come over for dinner.’ That was it. Those were the days. Enough to know the value of money.”
Juice Beauty & her California posse: “The line is made in California, so I was thinking of my California posse: Cameron, Blythe, Apple, Drew, Reese, Kate, Chelsea. If you were to ask me what my biggest success is, it’s that I’ve been able to maintain and nourish my relationships. As you get older, you choose friends based on not only what feels resonant and warm but if they’re bringing something to your life. My women friends are incredibly intelligent. There’s no posturing, no competition. Especially in Los Angeles, I see pockets of friends who are very competitive, and I think, What is the point? I would rather be alone in bed with a book than have a girlfriend who is like that.”
SCROUNGE QUARTERS TO BUY STARBUCKS?! OH THE HUMANITY!!! What do you think of her “self-made” selfhood?
