Can't Un­der­stand why I'm hated

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Front Page -

The ac­tor says she can­not un­der­stand why she was voted the most-hated celebri­tyAc­tor Gwyneth Pal­trow (right) still doesn’t un­der­stand why she was once the “mosthated celebrity”.

Three years af­ter Star magazine called her so in their 2013 rank­ings list, the ac­tor fi­nally re­sponded to the ti­tle dur­ing a re­cent ap­pear­ance on BBC News’ show “Hardtalk”, re­ports aceshow­biz.com.

“First of all, I was like, ‘I am the most hated celebrity? More than, like, Chris Brown?’ What did I do,” Pal­trow told host Stephen Sackur, re­call­ing the first time she found out that she came out atop the list that also in­cluded Hol­ly­wood A-lis­ters like Anne Hathaway, Madonna, Lindsay Lo­han, Kristen Ste­wart and Chris Brown.

When told by the host that she prob­a­bly made “peo­ple feel bad some­times”, Pal­trow said that she never in­tended to hurt any­one.

“All I can do is be my au­then­tic self, and if you know me, then you know who I am, and that I have fun and eat and am so ap­pre­cia­tive for my life. But I think there are things about me that make peo­ple draw con­clu­sions,” she ex­plained.

The Iron Man 3 star spec­u­lated that peo­ple might dis­like her think­ing she was “spoiled” be­cause she was born in a wealthy fam­ily. How­ever, she stressed that her own hard work was what made her who she is today.

“That in­spires a lot of re­sent­ment. My par­ents did well, and I was able to go to a fan­tas­tic school, and we grew up in New York City, but the minute I left my col­lege to try to pur­sue act­ing, my fa­ther was re­ally sup­port­ive. But he said, you know, ‘You are com­pletely on your own’,” she told the host. “So the idea that I am spoiled or that I didn’t work for what I have is just not ac­cu­rate,” she added.
