Gwyneth Paltrow fans are sadden by the news that the Oscar winner (Shakespeare In Love) will be hanging up her acting shoes. The Goop CEO and founder announced that she will be taking a break from acting.
“I’m still going to do a little bit here and there, but this really requires almost all of my time,” Paltrow admitted to Today anchor Matt Lauer on Thursday. “I’m in the office all day, every day. I have a pretty big team—we’re almost 85 people—so I kind of need to be at work.”
Gwyneth will be living the Goop life 24/7, and her empire is growing rapidly –recently launching a wellness line that includes a subscription vitamin service, and launching their first-ever wellness summit, “In Goop Health.”
The mother-of-two admits that this career change is a surprise– even for herself!
“It’s just one of those things,” she admitted. “I was so lucky: I had an incredible acting career, but I had this deep passion to produce content and make great products and curate things. It sort of evolved slowly and had a long gestational period and now it’s like, a real business.”
Her other priority? Her two children which she co-parents with ex-husband Chris Martin. "“I have to say, so far, Apple—she’s pretty great,” Paltrow said. “Sometimes she asks me to close her door. She’s like, ‘Can you close my door?’ And I’m like, ‘Wait, with me on the other side of the door?’ But other than that, it’s been pretty smooth so far.”
