Martha Stewart has made her disdain for Gwyneth Paltrow quite known. In a recent interview with Porter magazine, the home and garden guru had some choice words for the Goopster: “She just needs to be quiet. She’s a movie star. If she were confident in her acting, she wouldn’t be trying to be Martha Stewart.”
Now that Gwyneth just hired the former CEO of Stewart’s company, it does seem a little bit like the actress is trying to come for Martha’s spot. But you won’t find Gwyneth shedding any tears over Stewart’s epic read. In fact, Paltrow seems to be pretty glad that Martha’s paying any attention to her or Goop at all. “If I’m really honest, I’m so psyched that she sees us as competition. I’m so psyched. I really am,” she said on a panel at the Most Powerful Women summit.
But Paltrow didn’t let the comment go by without throwing a little shade of her own. “I think that when anyone criticizes anyone, it’s revealing more about where they are in time and space as opposed to where you are in time and space. Generally we tend to lash out… it’s usually a reflection of something else. At this point in my life, I don’t take it personally I see it as a projection.”
Alright, then! Good to see Paltrow taking Stewart’s comments in stride, although we would expect no less form a woman who could probably wipe away any butthurt tears with an expensive monogrammed tea towel.
