Gwyneth Paltrow: I was a rich kid, until I was 18

Gwyneth Paltrow wants you to know she’s a self-made woman. “People think, ‘She’s just a rich kid.’ Until I was 18, I was. Then I was broke,” the 43-year-old goop founder said in the March issue of Glamour magazine.

“I’ve never taken a dime off my parents,” the mother of two revealed. “I’m completely self-made … I went to UC Santa Barbara, and when I quit to try to be an actress, my dad [Bruce Paltrow] 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.”


As someone who has struggled financially, Paltrow can’t deal with complaints about the high-priced items on her lifestyle website. “Sometimes I’ll get annoyed if someone’s like, ‘goop is so expensive.’ I’m like, ‘Have you looked at the website? Have you seen the range of price points? ’Cause we sell things that are $8,’” she ranted. A survey of the site delivered home items ranging from $35 to $750, while handbags range from $58 to $2,000.

“I’m like, ‘If you want to f–k with me, bring your A-game,” she added. “At least have all your information.’ Once in a while, if I’m exhausted and overwhelmed, I’ll be like, ‘Ugh, that bugs me,’ or, ‘That hurt my feelings.’ But very rarely. I don’t lose sleep over it.”





I am a lioness. I will not cringe for them.

I have no idea what planet this woman lives on....

Re: I swear, I can't with this woman…

I'm thinking Uranus, since that's where she pulls most of her ideas from.

Re: I swear, I can't with this woman…

Haha love it.

Re: I swear, I can't with this woman…

Just when you thought she has said the dumbest thing ever, she outdoes herself. I mean she KNOWS people hate her and has no clue how to even utter a few fake sentences and be pretend nice.

Re: I swear, I can't with this woman…

That's got to be fake, it has to be. I know she's deluded, but she would not say something like that, or would she?

Re: I swear, I can't with this woman…

Never say "never".

Re: I swear, I can't with this woman…

She's such a pretentious twat. When you're struggling, truly struggling, Starbucks is not on your list no matter how many "quarters you save" to get it. Must be a miserable life knowing nobody except your mom and kids are the only people that can stomach you. And they're forced to.

Re: I swear, I can't with this woman…

"Hey, you think you've got it bad? There was a time in my life when I couldn't even afford to fly in First Class!".

Re: I swear, I can't with this woman…

Oh please. Lots of people that have it tough are buying Starbucks. there is a reason why there is a Starbucks on every corner and all over the world. It's because people are buying coffee when they should instead be making it a home.

And how would you know who would be able to stomach her? Are you in her life and know who her friends are? And lets not forget that Chris Martin could stomach her for 10 years and when they split he went into a deep depression over it. His bandmates were really worried for him at the time.

Re: I swear, I can't with this woman…

I once lived without power for two months. I sat in a tub taking two inch baths in freezing water. I had a camp light to light my home. I had to find places to charge my phone. When I scrounged for quarters, which I did desperately many many times, it was to buy a single meal for my entire day, of McDs dollar hamburger. And I got thru it and i learned from it. But THAT is scrounging. that's literal scrounging for quarters to eat to survive. I did not have the luxury to spend my change on Starbucks

Yeah, right. So how did she afford to pay for that apartment, food, gas, Starbucks, auto insurance, cell phone charges, colon cleanses and all the other ridiculous $hit she buys? Oh, right, she probably used the money she'd received as birthday presents, bat mitzvah presents, gifts from granny, etc. Because she couldn't afford to do all of that starting out as a waitress. Gwyneth needs to get real.

Re: I swear, I can't with this woman…

Cell phone charges 5b4 ? There were no cell phones back then. And when she was struggling like that, did she have colon cleanses and buy ridiculous things? Nothing really suggests that. It's probably something that she started doing when she got rich from her movies.

And she probably paid for her apartment, food and gas from working e.g. at a restaurant. Lots of hollywood stars have stories about crappy jobs they had.

And Carlsberg is "probably" the best lager in the world.

Lucca Brasi sleeps with the fishes!!!

Re: I swear, I can't with this woman…

Ha ha this is hilarious. I love that she forgot to mention that the only reason she got into U of Santa Barbara is b/c Michael Douglas, who was a family friend, graduated from there and he wrote a letter to the dean - her grades were not good enough. So even if her parents didn't give her money she knew her family had the connections to get her foot in the door - close family friend Steven Spielberg cast her as Wendy in Hook for crying out loud. So in the back of her mind she must have known she wouldn't struggle! This was all in the very first profile Vogue ever did on her and I remember she openly bragged about all her family connections.

Gwynnie's problem is that she needs to stop pretending she had a normal life but at the same time, she needs to show a bit of gratitude and humility for being given the opportunities she has had because of who her parents are. It's not her fault she was born into privilege but there are a lot of privileged ppl who don't boast and brag about that privilege. It's her own fault she chose to be so smug from the beginning of her career about all the connections she had and how charmed h b68 er life was. Even though she is vile as a person she was a decent actress back in the day - but she needs to stop deluding herself into thinking that her talent would have gotten her where she is today if she didn't have the head start that she did compared to an unknown actress with no connections actually struggling to make it in the business.
