Paltrow is called a role model for other female celebrities in an article in The New York Times. The article discusses Paltrow’s Goop shopping website and how it inspired other female celebrities to start their own.
The other day Drew Barrymore and I were talking, and she said, ‘Thank you for going first and getting all the scratches.’ People like to classify you, and when you start pushing out of your box it makes them nervous. There’s a lot of resistance to women coming to the table with anything new. But if it were Justin Timberlake or Jay Z or even Donald Trump, everyone would be like, ‘OK’.
The article says that Juliet de Baubigny suggested Paltrow turn Goop into a business, introducing her to her first chief executive, Seb Bishop.
