Gwyneth Paltrow is finally responding to Star Magazine naming her “The Most Hated Celebrity” in 2013. At the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity on Wednesday, BBC host Stepher Sackur asked the Goop blogger what it was like to find out about the title.
Paltrow recalled, “First of all, I was like, 'I'm the most hated celebrity? More than, like, Chris Brown?' What did I do?’”
The 43-year-old said she was shocked to top the list of hated celebs that featured other stars like Anne Hathaway, Madonna, Lindsay Lohan, Kristen Stewart and Chris Brown.
Sackur pressed the subject with the A-lister arguing, “But maybe you just make people feel bad sometimes.”
The single mother replied, "All I can do is be my authentic self, and if you know me, then you know who I am, and that I have fun and eat and am so appreciative for my life. But I think there are things about me that make people draw conclusions."
Paltrow speculated that fans think she’s spoiled because she was born to famous parents, Bruce Paltrow and Blythe Danner.
"That inspires a lot of resentment. My parents did well, and I was able to go to a fantastic school, and we grew up in New York City, but the minute I left my college to try to pursue acting, my father was really supportive. But he said, you know, 'You are completely on your own.' So, he never gave me anything. I never had any supplementation. He never helped me with my rent. I never had a trust fund. So the idea that I am spoiled or that I didn't work for what I have is just not accurate, but I can see how somebody might have that perception."
