Gwyneth Paltrow really doesn't care what you think about her anymore - at least that's what she's saying now.
Paltrow spoke with InStyle for their upcoming February issue recently about her reputation, and how she is often criticized for her comments. The actress, 44, admitted that she's not that interested in paying any mind to her haters anymore.
"When I turned 40, I felt like I got this free software upgrade that I wasn't expecting," Paltrow said. "It just happened. Suddenly I was like, 'Oh, this is fantastic: I don't care! I like myself, and I'm just going to live my life. I'm going to stop worrying and tearing myself down.'"
Paltrow has been well-known for promoting seemingly-insane health and beauty products through GOOP, such as bee-sting facials and vaginal steaming, but she doesn't care about sounding weird or out-of-touch.
"I've learned how the cycle works... It used to be that I would talk about something or write about it, and people would be like, 'What the f--- is she talking about? She's a witch!' " she explained to InStyle. "And then later on it would sort of catch on. So now I just recognize it: Okay, I'm going to talk about this, and people will think it's weird, and that's how it goes."
Paltrow also caused waves recently for a different topic entirely: that of the 2016 presidential election. While she did not openly endorse either Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump, her comments certainly differed from many of her Hollywood friends, who have been bemoaning Clinton's loss.
"It's such an exciting time to be an American because we are at this amazing inflection point," she said in late November, according to PageSix. "People are clearly tired of the status quo, and ... it's sort of like someone threw it all in the air and we're going to see how it all lands. It's very important for me, personally, now more than ever, to create a community and to remember the humanity of everybody and to create love and ... understanding."
