Gwyneth Paltrow: “I Don’t Give A (Bleep) What Anyone Else Thinks”

Gwyneth Paltrow doesn’t care about strangers’ opinions – especially what other moms think.

Mom to Apple, 9, and Moses, 7, Paltrow tells Red, “Nobody else can tell (a woman) how many hours a week she needs to devote to this, that or the other … (Forget) what anybody else says … It doesn’t matter what anyone else thinks. That’s what we’ve got to let go of. That idea of ‘Oh god, if I don’t show up to this concert, all the other mums are going to think I’m terrible.’ Well, so (bleeping). 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 (bleep) what anyone else thinks.”

She added, “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-so’s — it’s like, who gives a (bleep)?”

She’s had a rough ride – having been ridiculed for Goop and having Vanity Fair say they’re planning to run an unflattering story about her.

“Obviously, I have (gossip) 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.”

    Someone’s got her thong too tight!! yikes!!

    But I do agree.

    I totally agree with her. Guilt is almost like shame. You spend your whole life worrying about what other people think of you. You think they’re judging you which they probably are. It’s so ridiculous to think we should be trying to win someone else’s approval all the time. I am getting better with age in not caring so much what people think about I say, what I’m wearing, what my kids are doing, how I live my life, etc. but some of it lingers.

      Your right but Goop is full of crap like another post said she cares very much what people think of her.

      If she did care why is she telling her friends not to boycott Vanity Fair or when she got backlash for making kids have a gluten free diet in her next interview she backtrack what she said.

        Where’s the evidence that she told her friends ANYTHING about Vanity Fair? Some secondhand information from “a source”?

          Um, I think the New York Times actually has copies of the email she sent to her friends. So yep, there’s evidence.

    The woman is just laughable at this point. She back tracks almost every comment she makes and constantly haves her PR person denying stories, If she didn’t care she would just ignore the media .

    I never knew why I couldn’t stand this woman.

    Now I do.

    It is a bit sad to be famous for being the actress that everyone loves to hate. There needs to be a magazine just for the yucky celebs – Gwyneth, Jay-Z, the whole K family, Kanye.. for example.

      Their egos couldn’t handle it. Lol
