Gwyneth Paltrow Doesn’t Understand Why You Hate Her

For years it seems like the internet as collectively hated Gwyneth Paltrow. (For a while i was Anne Hathaway, but the internet decided to leave her alone for a bit). And in 2013, Star magazine named Gwyn “the most hated celeb.” But what exactly did she do to deserve that title? Gwyn still doesn’t understand.

Speaking with BBC’s Stephen Sackur, Gwyneth recalled thinking, “I was like, ‘I’m the most hated celebrity? More than, like, Chris Brown?’ What did I do?”

Fair point, Gwyn!

Although Gwyneth did admit that she could see why her upbringing would inspire some resentment — she was born “with a silver spoon” in her mouth after all, as she puts it. Or the fact that she’s been represented as an avid healthy eater (“People tend to think that I eat just seaweed and a bit of air”). Or, of course, it could be her choice of words when announcing her “conscious uncoupling” from hubbie Chris Martin (she admitted she was surprised by the reactions to her term).

But luckily Gwyneth doesn’t let any of the haters truly get to her.

“All I can do is be my authentic self.”

You do you, Gwyn!
