There’s one thing Gwyneth Paltrow hates more than all the non-organic, fatty food combined and that’s being compared to other actresses who have turned their considerable talents to business enterprises. Paltrow, who is currently on hiatus from acting whilst she focuses on her business GOOP, revealed she considers being compared with other actresses as sexist as actors, who launched business, are not grouped together in the same way.

Speaking to Time, 42-year-old Paltrow was irritated with the interviewer when they suggested other actresses had similar business beyond their full time jobs. The three women Paltrow is compared to are Reese Witherspoon, Jessica Alba and Blake Lively.

Witherspoon owns her own successful production company, also founded her own lifestyle website, Draper James. The website sells clothing and some home products. Alba is the co-founder of The Honest Company, which produces organic and environmentally friendly baby products. Alba has recently been named America’s richest self-made woman by Forbes as a result of her successful business. Meanwhile Lively runs Preserve which aims to find clothing made by US ‘artisans’. 

Although Paltrow recognises each woman is highly successful in their own way but she wanted to emphasise the differences in their companies so they were not all grouped together. 

“I’m fascinated how the media in particular are so confounded by entrepreneurial women doing something outside of their box,” Paltrow said. “Jessica [Alba], especially, who’s a friend of mine - our businesses could not be more different. There’s not a lifestyle piece to her business. The fundamentals of our sites are very different. Reese launched - our businesses have similarities, but hers has retail. People are grasping at straws to tie us together and I get it, because it makes a good story, but I’m slightly offended by this sort of generalization that happens with myself and Jessica and Reese and Blake.”
