Gwyneth Paltrow: Don’t Compare Me to Other Entrepreneurial

Posted Friday June 5, 2015 2:17 PM GMT

There’s a prevailing trend of celebrities starting their own companies, however Gwyneth Paltrow isn’t interested in being lumped in with the likes of Blake Lively and Jessica Alba.

The GOOP mastermind told TIME magazine that for whatever reason, businesswomen are being treated much differently than their male counterparts- “This is a very interesting question, because I wonder if George Clooney would be asked about Puff Daddy’s ancillary liquor line.”

Paltrow added, “People are grasping at straws to tie us together and I get it, because it makes a good story, but I’m slightly offended by this sort of generalization that happens with myself and Jessica and Reese and Blake [Lively]. Yes, there are similarities. But there aren’t stories in TIME written saying, ‘Wow, look at Arnold Schwarzenegger, who did x, y, and z!’ I feel there’s something slightly misogynistic about it. None of us think we’re in each other’s space.”
