Gwyneth Paltrow Is Closer To The 'Common Woman' Than You Think

Gwyneth Paltrow Is Closer To The 'Common Woman' Than You Think
Gwyneth Paltrow's recent comments concerning her lifestyle site Goop have well and truly annoyed the Internet at large (again).

The actress has always had a hard time explaining and defending her lifestyle site, and her latest interview in which she describes herself as the 'common woman', in an attempt to clarify who Goop is for, has got Twitter up in arms.

But we think the Internet's reaction is slightly unfair. Sure, Gwynnie sometimes has a certain way with words that might make some balk, but in essence, what she's saying is true – and we agree with everything she says.

Talking to CNN Money, the 42-year-old explained: 'I'm incredibly close to the common woman, in that I'm a woman and I'm a mother.'

'We all are in a physical body with beating hearts, with compassion and love,' she continued. 'We are all seekers, we all want questions, we all want fulfillment, we want to live our best lives. We want to be healthy and happy and squeeze the most that we can out of life. I think that's all women.'

'I see myself as an actor and a mother and as an entrepreneur . . . I don't see myself as a guru at all, I think that I'm building a lifestyle business. I'm not a guru because I feel like I'm the one asking the questions, you know? I'm not purporting to know anything. I'm just asking this doctor or that nutritionist or this expert, 'Hey, what is your take on this?'

We're totally with you Gwynnie. And to prove just how like the rest of us she is, here's three times we've totally connected with Ms Paltrow:

When she cried at the Oscars
We might not have cried during an acceptance speech in front of a room full of the world's most famous people, but we definitely know what it feels like to get a bit over emosh in public. Uncontrollable open-mouthed crying is embarrassing whoever, or wherever you are: be that at the Oscars or waiting for the bus alone in the rain.
