Gwyneth Paltrow defends herself, claims she’s ‘close to the common woman’

Chris Martin’s ex has often been criticized for her life principles which have been deemed too snobbish.

However, Gwyneth Paltrow insists she’s just like the rest of us.

“I’m incredibly close to the common woman in that I’m a woman and I’m a mother,” Paltrow said in an interview about her lifestyle business GOOP with CNNMoney. “We all are in a physical body with beating hearts, with compassion and love.”

“We are all seekers, we all want questions, we all want fulfillment, we want to live our best lives,” she continued. “We want to be healthy and happy and squeeze the most that we can out of life. I think that’s all women.”

The Oscar-winning actress also responded to critics saying that she and her lifestyle site Goop are out of touch.

“What we try to do at GOOP is to curate, to edit, and to give context to things,” she explained. “We know that a woman’s time is her most precious resource, and we want to multitask, get a lot done. What we want to do is provide the best solutions.”

“I always say that when people make that false assumption it’s cause they haven’t actually gone to the site [to] see what we’re selling and see what we’re about. We have products on the site that are under $10, we have products on the site that are $500. I think the idea is that we’re gonna find the best thing, whatever it is, at any price point.”

The Iron Man star, who is a mother to Apple, 10, and Moses, eight, with Chris Martin, said that she doesn’t consider herself a lifestyle guru.

“I see myself as an actor and a mother and as an entrepreneur,” she said. “I don’t see myself as a guru at all, I think that I’m building a lifestyle business. I’m not a guru because I feel like I’m the one asking the questions, you know? I’m not purporting to know anything. I’m just asking this doctor or that nutritionist or this expert, ‘Hey, what is your take on this?'”
