Gwyneth Paltrow on Goop's mistakes: "We just thought we were like, writing a blog"



In an interview with CNN's Poppy Harlow at SXSW yesterday, Goop CEO Gwyneth Paltrow addressed a crowd to discuss her massive lifestyle brand that is now worth $250 million.

On 'painful lessons': “We didn’t understand that you can’t make certain claims. We just thought we were like, writing a blog.” (Paltrow now says she's hired a team of in-house scientists and lawyers)

On Jeff Bezos ignoring her: "I got an email and it said the subject was Jeff Bezos, and the sender was Jeff Bezos. So I wrote back, and then he wrote me, and then I said, you know, I would die for the opportunity to sit down and ask you a bunch of questions… and he never wrote me back."

On controversy: "People love to talk about like, Goop is controversial. It’s like, really? Cause we’re talking about female sexual health?... We know if we’re going to write about like a vaginal steam, that it’s funny. But also at the same time we like to identify those things, like what are the next healing modalities, and we just like to ask questions about them."
