Gwyneth Paltrow has few regrets about her starry life. However, if the actress and wellness guru could change one thing, it would be having more kids.
Getting To Know The Real Gwyneth
In a wide-ranging New York Times interview, the notoriously private celebrity opened up and discussed everything, from her personal life to the negative reaction to her divorce from Coldplay frontman Chris Martin, and being a more hated celebrity than Chris Brown.
According to the Oscar winner and Goop CEO, the response to her and Martin's conscious uncoupling back in 2014 shocked her. She reasoned that her use of the strange term may have given people the wrong impression about how they took the matter seriously.
"I was really saying we're in a lot of pain, we failed at this; we're going to try and do it in a different way ... I think that was an instance where it really hit me that an insouciance with language from me is different than from somebody else," she explained.
Both parties have now happily moved on. Paltrow got engaged to producer Brad Falchuk earlier this year after four years of dating. Martin, meanwhile, is dating actress Dakota Johnson.
She's Just A Regular Famous Lady
The vagina steam aficionado noted that it has always been difficult to understand the public hatred toward her, but she no longer lets it get to her.
The actress particularly recalled being voted as the most hated celebrity in the world in the same week that she was also voted the most beautiful woman in the world.
"I remember being like: Really? More than, like, Chris Brown? Me? Really? Wow ... I don't understand. Am I hated to the bone or am I the world's most beautiful?" she said.
The mother of two, who shares 14-year-old daughter Apple and 12-year-old son Moses with Martin, also revealed that she wished she had more children.
"I really wanted another one," admitted Paltrow who, at 45, reckons her window has closed.
Goop is hugely popular in spite of tons of negative backlash, and the New York Times profile is predominantly focused on just how Paltrow managed to make it so huge.
The company has come under fire for promoting expensive, or even dangerous practices but the Oscar-winning actress remains defiant in the inherent goodness of her brand.
When the pop culture site The Cut confronted the actress with frequent take-downs of her suggestions to steam one's vagina, cut certain food groups out, et cetera, Paltrow gave a Mariah Carey-esque answer: she does not know what The Cut even is.
