Gwyneth Paltrow to Quit Hollywood After Selling Goop
Gwyneth Paltrow is ready to hang up Hollywood once she sells her wellness empire, Goop. In a new cover story for Bustle published Wednesday (October 18), the Se7en star shared that she plans to sell Goop in a few years and then retire from the spotlight. However, she has “no idea” who may buy her company.
“We’re not ready to sell yet. I need a few more years,” she told the publication, adding that she’d be “happy” with the idea of making a big exit for her 55th birthday in 2027. “I will literally disappear from public life,” Paltrow continued. “No one will ever see me again.” Admitting she doesn’t find pleasure in her celebrity status, the 51-year-old explained that the parts of her job she does enjoy include “creating, collaborating, being struck with new ideas, innovating, thinking ahead, strategy, vision, that kind of thing.”
She claimed in her October cover issue that she is not motivated by money, even though Goop was valued at $250 million in 2018, a source close to the company told The New York Times at the time. On top of that, the products featured on her website are always priced out of the range of the average working-class American. Paltrow, who is married to producer Brad Falchuk, told Bustle, “I could never get attracted to the really rich guy. And I don’t make choices to build value in the wrong way. I’ve always done independent films. I don’t know. Money has never been my thing. It’s never been my driver.”
Despite that, Paltrow says of her eldest daughter, Apple Martin, whom she shares with ex- Chris Martin, she has been trying to embrace the normal college experience. However, the 19-year-old is experiencing judgment for being a “nepo baby.” Paltrow says Apple is “really just a student” who “wants to be a kid and be at school and learn.” Pointing out that “nobody rips on a kid who’s like ‘I want to be a doctor like my dad and granddad,’ the Oscar winner adds that the “nepo baby” label is “kind of an ugly moniker.”
