If you are a fan of Gwyneth Paltrow’s movies, you will be missing her for a while. This is because she plans to take a hiatus from acting for a little while to concentrate on her skincare product, Goop. Although the actress says she does love acting and always will, she says all of her attention right now is on Goop and making it successful. After all, according to Paltrow, she says she did take people’s money to get it going so it is now time to get serious about it. According to the Huffington Post on March 5, the actress was seen on the Today Show revealing that she will take a short break from acting to focus 24/7 on Goop. She says that all of her focus has to be on it right now and nothing else. She says she will probably go back to the big screen but not for a while. So, if you are a fan, you won’t get to see her for a while.
People are saying Goop is too expensive and criticizing her for it. She had this to say about the critics,
Sometimes I’ll get annoyed if someone’s like, ‘Goop is so expensive.’ I’m like: Have you looked at the website? Have you seen the range of price points? ‘Cause we sell things that are $8…If you want to f-k with me bring your A-game. At least have all your information.
The Today show reports that Paltrow is throwing herself into a new and very important role now, entrepreneur. She also had this to say to the critics about Goop,
According to AceShowBiz, it took Paltrow 13 months to develop Goop.
I think that people who are going to criticize—-and I’m always open to criticism and learning more, but people who are going to criticize should have all the empirical information. So to say that we’re so expensive when we actually have a range across all price points, you know.
Although Paltrow’s focus is on her skincare business right now, she will never take her focus away from her children. In fact, she took Apple, 11-years-old, and Moses, 9-years-old to see their father, Chris Martin play at the Superbowl Halftime show with Coldplay. She says it was not just fun to take her kids to see their father play the Halftime show but it was something she had to do for them. She says they were very proud of him and they were thrilled to watch their dad play the Superbowl Halftime show.
Although she is taking a short break from acting to focus on her new business venture, you might remember seeing her play alongside Johnny Depp in the movie “Mortdecai.” She is also expected to return for her role as the love interest for Tony Stark in the movie, “Captain America: Civil War.” So she won’t be away from the big screen too long but she does feel that she needs a break from acting so she can not only spend her time on her new business but so she can also spend more time with her children.
Paltrow was also recently on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” where they did something really hilarious together. They sang text messages to give the texts new meaning. It is called Her First Textual Experience and you can watch the video with her and Fallon singing the text messages on this page.
