Gwyneth Paltrow has shaken off her reputation as Hollywood's sweetheart, insisting she has a mean side and "can definitely harbour revenge".
The Shakespeare in Love star, who doles out advice on topics like friendship in her Goop.com lifestyle newsletters, admits she is capable of shutting people out of her life and sometimes partakes in gossip.
But the mum-of-two maintains that seeking revenge makes her feel "terrible".
She tells Britain's Vogue magazine, "Oh yes, I can be mean. I can cave in to gossip. I can ice people out and I can definitely harbour revenge. In fact, I'm having a situation right now with a friend where I'm feeling angry. But revenge is corrosive. I'll wake up in the morning and think, 'Ugh, I feel terrible' and suddenly realise, 'Ah, that's why. I'm holding on to so much hate.'"
