Gwyneth Paltrow has it all — except any energy to care what people think of her.

“The older I get, I realize it doesn’t matter what people who don’t know you think. It doesn’t matter. You’re wasting your energy,” Paltrow tells Britain’s Red magazine, according to People.

25 totally unnecessary spin-offs

“It’s like, if your partner comes to you — or your best friend — and says, ‘Listen, I want to talk about something you did that hurt me, or I think you could improve,’ sit down and listen to what they have to say,” she continues. “But some friend of so-and—so’s — it’s like, who gives a sh–?”

Paltrow, who founded the lifestyle company Goop, specifically slams women who judge other women for their lifestyle choices. “Nobody else can tell [a woman] how many hours a week she needs to devote to this, that or the other,” she says. “F— what anybody else says. … It doesn’t matter what anyone else thinks. That’s what we’ve got to let go of. That idea of ‘Oh God, if I don’t show up to this concert, all the other mums are going to think I’m terrible.’ Well, so f—ing what.”
