Gwyneth Paltrow lives clean but likes her humor dirty
Anderson, who opened her latest fitness studio in New York on Tuesday, compared her partnership with Paltrow to a supportive “sisterhood.”
“Neither of us want to dim each other’s light in any way,” Anderson told CNN. “We truly have each other’s back in the best way.”
Paltrow developed her collaborative career approach as a young adult, with some advice from her mother, actress Blythe Danner.
“She was talking about acting but she said, ‘You know, ‘don’t ever be competitive with other actresses. If you don’t get a part, it means that it’s not your part. You didn’t fail, she didn’t beat you, it’s just not yours. So, just focus on who you are as an artist and what you are here to do,'” Paltrow recalled. “Honestly, I take that with me through my business life.”
Through her lifestyle publication GOOP, Paltrow has shared her appreciation for healthy eating and the value of exercise. But she also advocates for a little gluttony.
“I’m so focused on optimization, always, but I think what sometimes gets lost in that picture is that it’s really important to eat french fries and baguettes,” Paltrow said. “Life is about balance and enjoyment and loving your food and appreciating the moment.”
Even Anderson, who works out seven days a week, indulges in pizza on occasion.
“I ate pizza yesterday,” she laughed. “I believe in healthy, clean, eating — but I also believe in ice cream. For me, it’s a really balanced equation.”
For both women, good living is ultimately measured in friendship and family.
Paltrow, who was very close to her late father Bruce Paltrow, imparted some of his insight.
“He always just said to me, ‘Family is everything,” Paltrow remembered. “It’s so true. If you are fortunate enough to have your own family, it’s the most uplifting, wonderfully challenging experience that makes life very full.”
