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.

“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.”

What do you think of Paltrow’s comments?
