Gwyneth Paltrow once stepped away from her acting career to focus on her lifestyle brand, Goop. Now, she's considering withdrawing from the public eye entirely.
Speaking to Bustle recently, Paltrow shared that while she's "not ready to sell" her growing business, she has contemplated her future steps. "I will literally disappear from public life. No one will ever see me again," she confides, adding that she probably wouldn't consider selling Goop for "a few more years."
The 51-year-old, who is the daughter of actress Blythe Danner and producer Bruce Paltrow, expressed that she has never genuinely enjoyed the attention that comes with fame.
Paltrow also mentioned that money has never driven her.
"I could never get attracted to the really rich guy... And I don’t make choices to build value in the wrong way," she shared.
Currently, Paltrow is wed to TV writer and director Brad Falchuk. She was previously married to Chris Martin, the lead singer of Coldplay. Additionally, she has been linked to notable actors such as Brad Pitt and Ben Affleck, to name a few.
"I’ve always done independent films," she spoke of her previous work. "I don’t know. Money has never been my thing. It’s never been my driver."
Paltrow finds joy and professional satisfaction in certain aspects of her work. "Creating, collaborating, being struck with new ideas, innovating, thinking ahead, strategy, vision, that kind of thing," she expressed. Even as she remains engaged in her ventures, she's not fearful of the day she becomes dispensable.
According to Paltrow, "We as women are so programmed to be busy. It’s like a badge of honor, and we’ve all bought this thing from the patriarchy hook, line, and sinker that we have to be busy and overperforming. I’d like to move into the next phase more from a place of discovery and gentleness. To let life unfold, as opposed to ‘I’m not doing enough.’"
As Paltrow grows older, she finds it simpler to adopt a laid-back approach to life: "I don’t give a f--- what anyone says about me, thinks about me, this is who I am."
