‘It’s a really beautiful lesson in knowing who you are and f**k everybody else’: Gwyneth Paltrow reveals she has no regrets over quitting acting after Oscars backlash
Gwyneth Paltrow has revealed she has no regrets over quitting acting following that Oscars backlash – saying it taught her to put herself first and ‘f**k everyone else.’
The 49-year-old won the Academy Award for Best Actress in 1999 for her role in Shakespeare In Love but quit acting to focus on her Goop lifestyle brand after the win was criticised and even Glenn Close said it ‘didn’t make sense.’
Appearing on America’s TOADY show, the star said the moment was a big turning point in her career.

Speaking on the NBC morning television show she explained: ‘I think it was probably around the time of winning the Oscar where you go from people kind of being curious about you or discovering you or rooting for you to it all being upended, and people really wanting to tear you down and take great pleasure in it.
She added: ‘Which ends up being a really beautiful lesson in knowing who you are. Loving the people you love. Being totally in integrity. And like f**k everybody else.’
Gwyneth launched her business as a weekly newsletter in 2008 and she has gone on to build it into a major lifestyle branding – selling clean cosmetics and candles as well as other brands and even branching out into a Netflix documentary series.

Her candid interview comes after she invited her eight million followers into her bedroom with a racy selfie on Sunday.
The award winning actress created a social media post from between the sheets to promote a new skincare product.
‘I love to sleep. I love to exfoliate. And I love anything that does all the work while I’m in bed, which is why I’m thrilled to introduce our BRAND NEW GOOPGLOW Dark Spot Exfoliating Sleep Milk,’ she wrote in her caption.

The serum, which retails for $98 on the Goop website, claims it targets ‘sun damage, dark spots, pores, dullness, and uneven skin tone and texture, too.’
The actress, who appeared to be topless and wearing little more than her glasses in the selfie, claimed that the product simplified her skincare routine and that after smoothing it on at night, ‘I wake up with baby-soft, glowy, hydrated skin. Try it and I promise — you will see results, both overnight and over time.’
The Shakespeare in Love star shared some behind-the-scenes footage on her Instagram stories from the photo shoot for the product. The Oscar winner wore a white bandeau bikini as she was splashed with water and immersed herself in a tub, writing, ‘The team made me take a milk bath and I didn’t hate it.’

Goop began with a newsletter to the Iron Man actress’ friends and family back in 2008, and has since become a lifestyle empire valued at $250 million. Gwyneth has been the company’s CEO since 2016.
In a Sunday Sitdown interview on Today, the mom of two, who shares daughter Apple, 18, and son Moses, 16, with her ex-husband Chris Martin of Coldplay, said stepping back from the camera has allowed her to spend more time with her family, which includes her husband Brad Falchuk, whom she married in 2018.
‘I feel very blessed that I’ve been able to try to pursue this other career and kind of like keep hours where I’m able to be home and make them dinner and stuff like that.’

The Politician actress posted a clip of the interview that did not make into the story on social in which host Willie Geist asked about her upcoming 50th birthday. The versatile artist responded she was ‘excited’ about and that she was ‘surprised and delighted that I’m not freaked out about it…. I feel so good. I’m so happy to be turning 50. I’m really grateful. So happy that I have my health.’
That wasn’t the case when she turned 40, because, she explained, ‘I think when you grow up in the [celebrity] culture, and like pictures of you everywhere and you turn 40, people make such a big deal about it that you think, ‘Oh, my god, I’m, you know, over the hill,’ and so there’s a kind of grief and letting go.’
She also said she felt she got a ‘software upgrade’ and that she feels much more comfortable with herself. Gwyneth’s fans showed their support with comments such as, ’50 is still young it’s the way you feel and think about yourself,’ and ‘It’s so interesting that men don’t get asked these questions as they age. Why should she be worried?!’
