Talk about "Country Strong"! Gwyneth Paltrow says she has learned to stop fretting over people slamming her GOOP lifestyle site and newsletter as being too celebrity-oriented and unrealistic.
On the site, Paltrow, 38, serves up her favorite vacation spots, products and fitness tips, all of which have been criticized as being just too unobtainable for the average person.
But Paltrow tells the March issue of Harper's Bazaar U.K. she no longer takes the negative feedback personally.
"Any time you do anything with any degree of sincerity, people make fun of you. That's totally fine. I don't care. I don't read any of it," she says. "My thing with GOOP has always been, if you don't like it, then don't log onto it. There were a couple of times when I thought, 'I'm just gonna stop doing it. People are so mean to me. I don't want to do it.' But then I was like, 'Who cares what some lame person out there says?'"
Besides, Paltrow notes, there are plenty of people who appreciate her advice.
"I was in Italy once, and this old man came up to me and said, 'I had the best time in Nashville because of GOOP,'" she says. "And that is so worth it to me."
