Gwyneth Paltrow Makes A Stand For Businesswomen Everywhere

Gwyneth Paltrow Makes A Stand For Businesswomen Everywhere

Gwyneth Paltrow has had enough of people trying to pit her against other #GIRLBOSSES (famous and non-famous), and so have we...

There's no doubting the fact that Gwyneth Paltrow is super-successful. Not only has she earned herself countless acting accolades over the course of her long career, she's also found the time to start up her very own company, dip her toe into the catering industry and has launched one of the most iconic lifestyle websites of all time; Goop. 

Sure, her C.V. is certainly impressive but the 42-year-old star knows she's not the only girl who's done good, and she took the time to remind us all about that fact in her most recent magazine article, which saw her totally take down the interviewer.

Featured in TIME magazine, the person conducting the interview asked whether she looks at other successful actresses’ lifestyle sites. We don't need to tell you that the likes of Blake Lively, Jessica Alba, and Reese Witherspoon have all started up their own online destinations that cover everything from child birth to fashion collaborations, with more seemingly on the way from Jessica Biel and the such like.

Clearly this question struck a nerve with Gwyneth, as she went on to speak up for businesswomen everywhere. She said, 'I wonder if George Clooney would be asked about Puff Daddy’s ancillary liquor line.' You can see where this is going...

'I’m fascinated how the media in particular are so confounded by entrepreneurial women doing something outside the box.' You took the words right out of our mouths, Gwynnie. 

She continued to say, 'People are grasping at straws to tie us together and I get it, because it makes a good story, but I'm slightly offended by this sort of generalisation that happens with myself and Jessica and Reese and Blake. Yes, there are similarities. But there aren't stories written saying, "Wow, look at Arnold Schwarzenegger, who did x, y, and z!"' PREACH. 

She went on to insist that there is no bad blood between her and her A-list counterparts and she expressed hope that, one day, the press would instead focus on women building one another up. In short, she's the ultimate #GIRLBOSS in our eyes...
