Gwyneth Paltrow has never been afraid to speak her mind, even if what she says turns a few heads.
After breaking onto the Hollywood scene in 1989 with High — which she followed up with 1991’s Hook— the actress quickly rose to fame. With that success, Paltrow chose to use her platform to be vocal about a variety of topics.
The Goop founder has been consistent in speaking her truth when sharing her beliefs, including her thoughts on drinking and dinner parties.
“I don’t really have drunk friends. My friends are kind of adult; they have a drink,” the Shakespeare in Love actress told the Guardian in January 2006. “But they hold their liquor. I think it’s incredibly embarrassing when people are drunk. It just looks so ridiculous. I find it very degrading.
The Country Strong star’s remarks don’t stop with beverages. Paltrow has come under fire candid disclosures involving topics of wealth and status as well — but she’s never looked back.
“I am who I am. I can’t pretend to be somebody who makes $25,000 a year,” she told Elle UK in March 2009. Five years later, the It’s All Easy author claimed that working as an actress and a mother is “much harder” than having a “regular job” and being a parent.
