gwyneth paltrow poor Gwyneth Paltrow Knows What It’s Like To Be Poor, To Eat Ramen (Gasp!)
She may lead a privileged jet-setting life these days, but Gwyneth Paltrow knows what it’s like to be poor, to eat Ramen even!
Because, of COURSE she does—She’s Gwyneth Paltrow folks!
The 43-year-old opens up about her Hollywood Oliver Twist days in an interview with Glamour magazine titled, Gwyneth Paltrow Get’s Real, “I Know Who I Am”
Gwyneth Paltrow poor
Here’s poverty, Gwyneth Paltrow style:
People think, “She's just a rich kid.” Until I was 18, I was. Then I was broke. I've never taken a dime off my parents. I'm completely self-made.
[I’ve had my days of weird roommates and ramen] I went to UC Santa Barbara, and when I quit to try to be an actress, my dad was like, “That's great, but I'm not gonna help you.” I was like, “Yeah, right.”
And he was like, “No, I'm not.” So I got an apartment with a roommate; I worked as a hostess at a restaurant; I would scrounge quarters to buy Starbucks—and walk there to save gas.
I remember once asking my dad for money, like, “Please, I'm really stuck. Can you help?” And he said, “You're more than welcome to come over for dinner.” That was it. Those were the days. Enough to know the value of money.
Indeed, walking to buy your Starbucks!
Gwyneth Paltrow sexual being
Paltrow also opens up about her hands-on parenting, and how she gets to be “a mommy and wear beautiful lipstick”
I think we're in the midst of creating a new archetype of a woman, and we're gonna get there. And I've never minded pushing anything along, taking some slings and arrows.
Our daughters will look at us and be like, “Oh, so you get to work and be a mommy and wear beautiful lipstick.” I mean, when they have a hole in their uniform, I sew it. I make the food; I bathe them.
And I'm a sexual being and a powerful woman and entrepreneur. I'm all of those things. We now realize that we have permission to be everything.
Gwyneth Paltrow conscious uncoupling
Paltrow discusses her consciously uncoupled relationship with Chris Martin—whom, she says, is now like her “brother.”
We spend a lot of time together. He's been away for two weeks [promoting his album]. Last night he got in at midnight and slept here so he could surprise the kids in the morning, we could all have breakfast, and he could take them to school.
So…we're not living together, but he's more than welcome to be with us whenever he wants. And vice versa: I sleep in his house in Malibu a lot with the kids. We'll have a weekend all together; holidays, we're together.
We're still very much a family, even though we don't have a romantic relationship. He's like my brother.
