After a long career in the limelight, Gwyneth Paltrow eagerly anticipates embracing her privacy. “I will genuinely vanish from public life,” Paltrow, 51, shared with Bustle in an interview published on Wednesday, October 18, as she discussed her future once she eventually sells Goop. “No one will ever see me again.”
For the time being, the Iron Man star intends to continue overseeing her Goop wellness company, which she established in 2008. She largely retired from acting in 2020 after her appearances in the film Avengers: Endgame and Netflix’s The Politician. As the CEO of Goop, she revels in “creating, collaborating, being struck with new ideas, innovating, thinking ahead, strategy, vision, that kind of thing.”
Paltrow’s aspiration is to sell the company in “a few more years” and concentrate on spending quality time with her family. The New York Times valued Goop at $250 million in 2018. Despite her accomplishments as an entrepreneur, Paltrow insists that wealth isn’t her driving force.
“I could never be drawn to extremely wealthy individuals,” remarked the actress, who married producer Brad Falchuk in September 2018. Falchuk’s credits include Glee, 9-1-1, and American Crime Story.
After more than three decades as an actress, Paltrow stressed that her paycheck is not her foremost concern.
“I’ve always gravitated towards independent films,” she continued. “Money has never been my primary motivation.”
Paltrow has two children with her former husband, Chris Martin, from Coldplay: a 17-year-old son named Moses and a 19-year-old daughter named Apple. She also serves as a stepmother to her husband’s two children—17-year-old Brody and 19-year-old Isabella.
Her current focus is on assisting Moses and Brody in completing their senior years in high school and navigating the college application process, which she describes as “a full-time job.” Apple is presently in her second year of college. Her mother mentioned that she has to cope with the “judgment that exists around kids of famous people” and emphasized that her daughter is “genuinely just a student” who “wants to be a regular student, go to school, and learn.”
The teenager has been exploring modeling, and in January 2023, Apple made her debut in the fashion world at Paris Fashion Week, sitting in the front row at Chanel’s haute couture runway show. Paltrow is not pushing her daughter into modeling or acting and hopes that all her children will be free to pursue their own dreams, regardless of what others may think or say.
