Gwyneth Paltrow is getting tired of being compared to fellow female entrepreneurs like Jessica Alba, Blake Lively and Reese Witherspoon. These four leading ladies have all launched successful companies, Gwyneth’s being Goop.com.
During a recent interview with TIME Magazine, Gwyneth was asked whether or not she looks at the websites built by Alba, Lively and Witherspoon. Her response has garnered a lot of attention. “This is a very interesting question, because I wonder if George Clooney would be asked about Puff Daddy’s ancillary liquor line. I’m fascinated how the media in particular are so confounded by entrepreneurial women doing something outside of their box,” she says.
Gwyneth also thinks “something slightly misogynistic about it.” Of the other three websites, she declares, “There’s no competition. None of us think we’re in each other’s space.”
She also takes a stance on the current issues women are having.
“I think we’re in a funny time for women. We are more and more the breadwinners in families across America or contributing equally; there’s a shift happening sociologically and psychologically. People are wrestling with this new archetype of being a woman with a brain who’s also sexual and trying to do more than one thing at a time. I also feel proud. Why would I not want to do that, if it’s a passion?”
At least we know how she feels…I guess.
