No filter? Gwyneth Paltrow has never been afraid to speak her mind, even if what she says turns a few heads.
After breaking onto the Hollywood scene in 1989 with High — which she followed up with 1991’s Hook— the actress quickly rose to fame. With that success, Paltrow chose to use her platform to be vocal about a variety of topics.
The Goop founder has been consistent in speaking her truth when sharing her beliefs, including her thoughts on drinking and dinner parties.
“I don’t really have drunk friends. My friends are kind of adult; they have a drink,” the Shakespeare in Love actress told the Guardian in January 2006. “But they hold their liquor. I think it’s incredibly embarrassing when people are drunk. It just looks so ridiculous. I find it very degrading.”
Paltrow was also honest about her idea of what types of foods are good and which ones should be avoided at all costs.
“I’d rather smoke crack than eat cheese from a tin,” the Clean Plate author said at the iTunes Festival in July 2011. Five years later, Paltrow doubled down on her cheese comment in a Goop article, saying, “You know, crack might be extreme, but spray cheese is not my kind of party.”
The Country Strong star’s remarks don’t stop with food. Paltrow has spoken out about her relationship with ex-husband Chris Martin and husband Brad Falchuk on multiple occasions. (She also dated actors including Brad Pitt, Ben Affleck and Luke Wilson in the past.)
“I’ve f—ked up so many relationships. So many,” she said on an August 2017 episode of Girlbosss Radio. “I’m actually a pretty good friend and a good sister and a daughter and a mother, but I am at my potentially most vulnerable and f—ked up in the romantic slice of the pie. So it’s taken me a lot of work to get to the place where I have a good romantic relationship.”
The Politician actress has come under fire at times for her candid disclosures, many of which involve the topics of wealth and status, but she’s never looked back.
“I am who I am. I can’t pretend to be somebody who makes $25,000 a year,” she told Elle UK in March 2009.
Five years later, the It’s All Easy author claimed that working as an actress and a mother is “much harder” than having a “regular job” and being a parent.
