Gwyneth Paltrow Surprised To Be Named The 'Most Hated Celebrity'

July 1, 2016 by Sara Alderman

Let us take you back to 2013 when Star magazine named Gwyneth Paltrow the “Most Hated Celebrity.” Remember that? Maybe you don’t, but you surely know about her penchant for $4,000 juicers and $300/day diet, right? The actress is notorious for, let’s say, doling out life advice that doesn’t necessarily resonate with anyone who is not Gwyneth Paltrow.

When speaking with Stephen Sackur, host of BBC NewsHardtalk, Paltrow admitted to being confused by the title. “First of all, I was like, ‘I’m the most hated celebrity? More than, like, Chris Brown [who ranked #20]?’ What did I do?”

“I see where you are coming from, but maybe you just make people feel bad sometimes,” Sackur explained. Paltrow did agree with his statement but also said it was never her intention to put people off. “All I can do is be my authentic self, and if you know me, then you know who I am, and that I have fun and eat and am so appreciative for my life. But I think there are things about me that make people draw conclusions,” she replied.

The actress also admitted that her upbringing doesn’t help her “holier-than-thou” persona. “There is the perception that I grew up very wealthy…and [was] raised with a silver spoon in my mouth,” she said. “That inspires a lot of resentment.” She continued, “My parents [actress Blythe Danner and the late producer Bruce Paltrow] did well, and I was able to go to a fantastic school, and we grew up in New York City, but the minute I left my college to try to pursue acting, my father was really supportive. But he said, you know, ‘You are completely on your own.’ So, he never gave me anything. I never had any supplementation, he never helped me with my rent, I never had a trust fund. So the idea that I am spoiled or that I didn’t work for what I have is just not accurate, but I can see how somebody might have that perception.”

I kind of like this real Gwynnie! But, the best revelation from this interview has to be that the woman who claims she’d smoke crack over eating spray cheese calls French fries “my life.” Yep, when discussing another misconception about herself, Paltrow revealed, “People tend to think that I eat just seaweed and a bit of air.” She continued, “I have never had a horrible experience with French fries. French fries are my life!”
