Former President Barack Obama and his wife Michelle have added their voice to growing demonstrations of public outrage. Their eldest daughter Malia worked as an intern at The Weinstein Company in New York earlier this year.
A statement released by the Obamas says they “have been disgusted by the recent reports about Harvey Weinstein”.
It adds they “celebrate the courage of women who have come forward”.
Also on October 10, Gwyneth Paltrow and Angelina Jolie both sent statements to the New York Times, which first reported allegations against him last week.
Angelina Jolie said in an email: “I had a bad experience with Harvey Weinstein in my youth, and as a result, chose never to work with him again and warn others when they did.
“This behavior towards women in any field, any country is unacceptable.”
In a statement, Gwyneth Paltrow alleged that, after Harvey Weinstein cast her in the leading role in Emma, he summoned her to his hotel suite, where he placed his hands on her and suggested massages in his bedroom.
“I was a kid, I was signed up, I was petrified,” the actress told the NYT.
Gwyneth Paltrow said she told her then-boyfriend Brad Pitt about the incident, and said he confronted Harvey Weinstein.
“I thought he was going to fire me,” she said.
The separate New Yorker report says that 16 former and current employees at Harvey Weinstein’s companies told the magazine “they witnessed or had knowledge of unwanted advances and touching at events associated with Weinstein’s films and in the workplace”.
The magazine quotes actress and director Asia Argento and Lucia Stoller, now Lucia Evans – who says she was an aspiring actress when Harvey Weinstein allegedly approached her in 2004. Both say they were forced into s**ual acts by the producer.
A third woman, who did not want to be named, said Harvey Weinstein had “forced himself on me s**ually”.
Asia Argento said she has not spoken until now because she feared it would ruin her career to do so.
“That’s why this story – in my case, it’s 20 years old, some of them are old – has never come out,” she told the New Yorker.
Other allegations in the piece came from Mira Sorvino, who won an Oscar in 1996 for her role in Mighty Aphrodite for Miramax, a studio headed by Harvey Weinstein at the time. She told the magazine that Harvey Weinstein had tried to pressure her into a relationship.
Roseanna Arquette also said that she rejected Harvey Weinstein’s advances and that she believes her acting career suffered as a result.
Harvey Weinstein’s spokeswoman Sallie Hofmeister issued a statement in response to the article.
“Any allegations of non-consensual s** are unequivocally denied by Mr. Weinstein,” she said.
“Mr. Weinstein has further confirmed that there were never any acts of retaliation against any women for refusing his advances.
“Mr. Weinstein obviously can’t speak to anonymous allegations, but with respect to any women who have made allegations on the record, Mr. Weinstein believes that all of these relationships were consensual. Mr. Weinstein has begun counseling, has listened to the community and is pursuing a better path.”
Former Secretary of State and presidential candidate Hillary Clinton shared a statement saying that she was “shocked and appalled” by the revelations about Harvey Weinstein, who donated to her 2016 presidential campaign and has been a major donor to the Democratic Party.
Gwyneth Paltrow’s e-commerce website Goop.com has been sued by Charles Platkin, who owns and operates a business under the name Diet Detective.
Charles Platkin alleges that Gwyneth Paltrow’s company infringed on his Diet Detective copyright in a July 18th article posted on its website, which used the phrase as its title.

He is the author of the Diet Detective syndicated column, as well as maintaining a website under that name. He demands that Goop Inc. be barred from using his “Diet Detective” trademarks, and is seeking monetary damages and a jury trial.
Charles Platkin is represented by William R. Samuels of W.R. Samuels Law PLLC.
Gwyneth Paltrow is dating Glee co-creator Brad Falchuk, four months after announcing her split from husband Chris Martin, Us Weekly revealed.
Gwyneth Paltrow, 41, has appeared on five episodes of Glee as Holly Holliday since 2010.
Gwyneth Paltrow is dating Glee co-creator Brad Falchuk, four months after announcing her split from husband Chris Martin
An insider told Us Weekly “things started off professionally” between the pair. That relationship evolved, however, and Gwyneth Paltrow recently stepped out with the 43-year-old executive producer for a dinner date at East Borough in L.A.
Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin, 37, announced their “conscious uncoupling” after more than 10 years of marriage four months ago in a joint statement. The parents of daughter Apple, 10, and son Moses, 8, have remained amicable and have been spotted out together since the news.
Brad Falchuk also recently got out of a marriage. His wife of 10 years, Suzanne, filed for divorce in March 2013. The exes share a daughter and son.
Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin are to separate after more than ten years of marriage, the couple has announced in a joint statement.
Gwyneth Paltrow, 41, and Chris Martin, 37, announced the split on her blog in a post titled Conscious Uncoupling.
“It is with hearts full of sadness that we have decided to separate,” they wrote.
Gwyneth Paltrow and Coldplay singer Chris Martin, who married in December 2003, have two children – Apple, 9, and Moses, 7.
A spokeswoman for Chris Martin confirmed the split, the Associated Press news agency reported.
Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin are to separate after more than ten years of marriage
In the message on Gwyneth Paltrow’ blog on the website Goop.com, the couple said they had “come to the conclusion that while we love each other very much, we will remain separate”.
The couple said they had been “working hard for well over a year, some of it together, some of it separated, to see what might have been possible between us”.
“We are, however, and always will be a family, and in many ways we are closer than we have ever been,” they wrote.
“We are parents first and foremost, to two incredibly wonderful children and we ask for their and our space and privacy to be respected at this difficult time.
“We have always conducted our relationship privately, and we hope that as we consciously uncouple and co-parent, we will be able to continue in the same manner.”
Within minutes of the message being posted, the website crashed as readers attempted to visit the site.
The statement was also accompanied by a photograph of Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin, as well as advice on marriage, divorce and spiritualism from two doctors.
In a lengthy essay titled On Conscious Uncoupling, Dr. Habib Sadeghi and Dr. Sherry Sami wrote about divorce as “a traumatic and difficult decision for all parties involved”.
“By choosing to handle your uncoupling in a conscious way, regardless of what’s happening with your spouse, you’ll see that although it looks like everything is coming apart; it’s actually all coming back together,” they concluded.
The announcement comes after Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin moved to Los Angeles last year, having previously lived in London.
Gwyneth Paltrow has revealed that she was left “hallucinating” after a 10-day cleanse.
Gwyneth Paltrow, 40, is known for being active and eating healthy, but admits she has tried fads like juice cleanses in the past which did her more harm than good.
The actress explained: “I’ve done juice cleanses in the past, and in my twenties I did the Master Cleanse, which left me hallucinating after 10 days.
“Be aware: a juice detox can crash your metabolism and lead to future weight gain.”
Gwyneth Paltrow has revealed that she was left “hallucinating” after a 10-day cleanse
Although she’s committed to healthy living, Gwyneth Paltrow reveals she does indulge in naughty treats every now and then – including wine and cigarettes – because it provides some “balance” in her life.
In a self-penned article for The Telegraph newspaper, Gwyneth Paltrow wrote: “Stay away from processed foods, though cutting them out completely is no fun and can ultimately lead to a binge.
“Allow yourself programmed treats; I often have a glass of red wine in the evening and smoke a cigarette on a Saturday.
“I love those moments because they are just the right amount of naughty. That balance keeps you vibrant. You have to live your life, after all.”
Along with a good diet, Gwyneth Paltrow insists exercise is important and says she finds time to work out five days a week.
Gwyneth Paltrow added: “Keep up consistent exercise. I am dedicated to the Tracy Anderson Method and it has completely changed my body. Still, when I first started working with Tracy, finding motivation was hard.
“She advised me to think of exercise as an automatic routine, no different from brushing your teeth, to avoid getting distracted.
“Now it is part of my life – I exercise Monday to Friday at 10 a.m. and always stick with it.”
Gwyneth Paltrow has revealed her secrets to looking so great and maintaining her lean figure.
Writing for The Telegraph, Gwyneth Paltrow said that the key to staying in shape is a consistent exercise regime, regular detoxes and the occasional weekend treat.
Gwyneth Paltrow, 40, is an avid fan of Tracy Anderson – author and multi-platform wellness entrepreneur whose clients also include Madonna and Shakira.
Tracy Anderson and Gwyneth Paltrow are now business partners. Together they’ve produced four exercise DVDs and a book, Tracy Anderson’s 30-Day Method.
Gwyneth Paltrow also reveals that working with Tracy Anderson has completely changed her body.
The actress said: “Still, when I first started working with Tracy, finding motivation was hard. She advised me to think of exercise as an automatic routine, no different from brushing your teeth, to avoid getting distracted. Now it is part of my life.”
Gwyneth Paltrow explains how important routine is and that she exercises Monday to Friday at 10 a.m. and always sticks with it.
She advises people to create muscle tone and boost their metabolism by moving more and says we sit around for too much of the day.

In terms of her diet, Gwyneth Paltrow – who famously follows a super healthy macrobiotic diet – says that scheduling in a detox is very important.
After a gruelling schedule and lapse of overindulgence two years ago, Gwyneth Paltrow was left feeling fatigued and faint and a trip to the doctor later revealed that she was anaemic, vitamin D deficient, and that her stress levels were sky high.
Her doctor prescribed an elimination diet banning coffee, alcohol, sugar, eggs, wheat, meat and processed food to clear out her system and help her body heal – and she thinks everyone else should get on board.
Gwyneth Paltrow did, however, warn of the dangers: “I’ve done juice cleanses in the past, and in my twenties I did the Master Cleanse, which left me hallucinating after 10 days.
“Be aware: a juice detox can crash your metabolism and lead to future weight gain.”
To avoid getting distracted from your healthy eating plan, she says you should always keep healthy snacks nearby.
Gwyneth Paltrow loves healthy salad dressings (her favorite being her homemade Mexican green goddess dressing – goat’s yogurt, jalapeño, coriander and honey), which she stores in the fridge for the rest of the week and then drizzles over salads and chicken.
When it comes to monitoring weight, Gwyneth Paltrow believes it’s more important to measure in inches with a measuring tape because weighing yourself can lead to shame and guilt.
Although she maintains that following a healthy, balanced diet is key, Gwyneth Paltrow admits you should always allow yourself programmed treats.
“I often have a glass of red wine in the evening and smoke a cigarette on a Saturday. I love those moments because they are just the right amount of naughty.
“That balance keeps you vibrant. You have to live your life, after all.”
Gwyneth Paltrow appeared ever-so-graceful as she arrived at the Licensing Expo in Las Vegas, Nevada on Tuesday, but the frills on her blouse made the wrong kind of sartorial statement.
Turning her “fashion do” into a “fashion don’t”, the awkwardly placed, transparent ruffles did nothing to flatter her figure.
Instead, the additional fabric – that outlined her cream halter top – concealed enviable parts of her toned physique.

Creating a business casual look, Gwyneth Paltrow teamed her blouse with a pair of chocolate brown slacks, flaring above her pointed-toe heels, which seemed a tad too tight.
Not one to sport multiple accessories, Gwyneth Paltrow chose to team her clothes with a pair of round, dangling earrings.
Keeping with her signature style, the food writer sleeked her blonde hair into poker straight strands, as she highlighted her natural beauty with minimal make-up.
Gwyneth Paltrow has another mild fashion faux pas on Saturday night when she went bra-less to walk the red carpet at the Gene Siskel Film Center Gala Honoring Gwyneth Paltrow in Chicago, Illinois.
According to the company’s website, the founder of lifestyle website Goop.com attended the event to deliver the keynote address, titled “Brands on the Brink of Global Expansion” to talk business, strategy, and global expansion.
The event also included a Q&A session with fitness guru Tracy Anderson, since Gwyneth Paltrow is the co-owner of the Tracy Anderson brand.
While Kim Kardashian was stuck in Los Angeles awaiting the birth of their first child due next month, Kanye West was due to appear at the Governor’s Ball on Sunday night.
The couple reportedly received some generous gifts from millionaire friends Beyonce and Gwyneth Paltrow.
They both declined invitations to Kim Kardashian’s baby shower but instead sent some pricey gifts to the reality star in their absence.
“Both Gwyneth and Beyonce politely declined Kim’s offer of attending her baby shower. Beyonce is busy touring and Gwyneth doesn’t really know Kim that well,” a source told the Sunday Mirror.
“But Beyonce and Jay Z [gave her] a $15,000 Swarovski crystal-studded high chair designed by Carla Monchen.”
Health nut Gwyneth Paltrow – who shares the same fitness trainer as Kim Kardashian – sent a typically health-conscious gift option.

“Gwyneth sent six-month-pregnant Kim a $550 Vitamix blender and 21-day cleanse,” the source alleged. No doubt with the good intentions of helping Kim Kardashian bounce back into shape.
Meanwhile, Kim Kardashian while has struggled with trying to please everybody in the fashion world since becoming pregnant even sister Khloe recently admitted that the floral dress she wore to the Met Gala was a bad choice.
The dress had been widely mocked, with Robin Williams hilariously claiming that he “wore it better” as Mrs. Doubtfire in the 1993 movie.
When asked what she thought of the dress, Khloe Kardashian said: “I think Kim is beautiful. I wish, like, the gloves…”
She added: “I just felt like it was too covered somehow, just because her body, her b**bs, her belly, just all looked like one.”
Khloe Kardashian recently admitted that she was “offended” by Kim and Kourtney’s decision not to tell her Kim was pregnant.
Khloe Kardashian said: “I found out by watching Kourtney and Kim Take Miami that Kourtney said, <<This is going to push Khloe over the edge and we can’t tell her>>. I got offended by that.”
She added: “Of course I would be happy for my sister to have a baby.”
Gwyneth Paltrow, whose endeavors have been labeled pretentious and out of touch by some critics, has unveiled a new collection of bar accessories on her Goop blog.
Gwyneth Paltrow’s selection of “unique and individual pieces” is slightly out of the price range of the average drinker.
The actress is offering sterling silver shot glasses for $950 as well as a pair of glass and sterling silver decanters for an eye-watering $4,495.
On her Goop page, Gwyneth Paltrow, 40, writes: “For stocking a bar that is as useful as it is good looking, we’ve gone to Foundwell for unique accessories from jiggers to muddlers and more.”
Describing the $950 shot glass, the actress writes: “This sterling shot cup has the phrase <<Just a thimble full>> engraved on it – a gentle reminder to practice a little bit of restraint.
“A great gift or a fun conversation piece for your home bar.”

Gwyneth Paltrow launched Goop back in September 2008, a personal website where she dishes out advice to her readers and encourages them to “nourish the inner aspect”.
Each week the newsletter focuses on a subject area, split into Make, Go, Get, Do, Be, and See.
In an interview with the March 2011 issue of Harper’s Bazaar UK, Gwyneth Paltrow admitted: “There were a couple of times when I thought I’m just gonna stop doing it.
“People are so mean to me. I don’t want to do it.
“But then I was like, <<Who cares what some lame person out there says?>> I was in Italy once, and this old man came up to me and said, <<I had the best time in Nashville because of Goop>>. And that is so worth it to me.”
Gwyneth Paltrow has previously written about a 21-day Goop cleanse as well as given readers tips on how to update their spring wardrobe, but her outfit recommendations add up to over $450,000.
The actress does, however, maintain that she is completely normal just like the rest of us mere mortals.
Gwyneth Paltrow recently said: “One of my most negative qualities is . . . perfectionism . . . it comes from self-doubt and insecurity.
“I’m just a normal mother with the same struggles as any other… trying to do everything at once, trying to be a wife and maintain a relationship.”
Gwyneth Paltrow has branded the revealing Antonio Berardi dress she wore it at this week’s Iron Man 3 premiere in Hollywood a “disaster” and “humiliating”.
Gwyneth Paltrow, who had been crowned the World’s Most Beautiful Woman by People magazine ahead of the racy red carpet appearance, spoke about her dress during an interview with Ellen DeGeneres.
The star admitted she was horrified to discover her “ass was hanging out” and also revealed she needed grooming before putting it on.
“Yeah, oh, I kind of had a disaster,” Gwyneth Paltrow told Ellen in an interview set to air on Friday.

“I was doing a show and I changed there and I went I couldn’t wear underwear. I don’t think I can tell this story on TV…
“Well, let’s just say everyone went scrambling for a razor…So I went from being the most beautiful to the most humiliated. In one day… I work a 70s vibe. You know what I mean?”
Gwyneth Paltrow also talked about finding out she received People magazine’s title.
“My publicist of like 22 years, Stephen Huvane, sent me an email. And honestly I was like this is a joke. I reread it three times. I was like oh, he sent this to the wrong client. Like there’s no way,” the actress said.
“My name wasn’t on it… I was like oh this is not for me and it was actually psychologically interesting because for a minute I really thought that someone was playing a joke on me.”
Gwyneth Paltrow admitted: “I talked about it with my shrink.”
Gwyneth Paltrow was named the world’s most beautiful woman by People magazine, which praised her “timeless look”.
However, Gwyneth Paltrow, 40, received a barrage of abuse on Twitter after being crowned People magazine’s Most Beautiful Woman 2013.
Gwyneth paltrow beat actresses Jennifer Lawrence, 22, and Amanda Seyfried, 27, to the top spot, and snatched the title from her best friend Beyonce, 31, who won last year.
But within hours of the award being announced, critics took to Twitter to attack the decision.
One remarked: “If Gwyneth Paltrow is the most beautiful woman in the world then I’m a ten times Olympic bobsled gold medalist and Top Gun fighter pilot.”
Another wrote: “So People magazine has declared Gwyneth Paltrow is the world’s most beautiful woman, I wonder how they decide this. Bunch of c**p.”

“Gwyneth Paltrow’s publicist has not only earned his or her holiday bonus this year already but yours and mine as well,” added a third.
The comments come just a week after Gwyneth Paltrow was voted one of the most hated celebrities in Hollywood in a poll by Star magazine.
The actress was accused of being arrogant and giving patronizing advice on everything from cookery to how to dress.
Clean-living Gwyneth Paltrow, who is married to Coldplay singer Chris Martin, follows a rigorous diet and exercise regime to keep herself in shape.
But despite always appearing immaculate at red carpet events, she insists she spends most of her time lounging around in “baggy shorts” with “frizzy hair”.
Gwyneth Paltrow said: “Around the house, I’m in jeans and a t-shirt. I don’t really wear make-up. That’s what [my family] are used to.
“And Chris will make a joke about it. If I’ve gotten fully dressed up, he’ll be like, <<Oh, wow! You’re Gwyneth Paltrow!>> Because he’s used to seeing me in baggy shorts and frizzy hair.”
Describing her intensive fitness regime, which involves training five times a week with celebrity instructor Tracy Anderson, Gwyneth Paltrow added: “It makes me look younger and feel strong. It’s like brushing my teeth, I just do it.”
Anna Friel has revealed she relies on the “Master Cleanse” regime, which sees food replaced with a mixture of cayenne pepper, maple syrup and lemon juice, to stay slender.
Anna Friel, 36, told Grazia magazine: “It’s amazing. I’ve been drinking it for two months and I feel so much better and my skin has really benefitted.
“If you’re vain, as you get older you start thinking, <<I’ve got to do everything I can to save my skin>>. I’ve tried everything!”
Other celebrity fans of the Master Cleanse include Gwyneth Paltrow and Beyoncé, who lost 20 lbs in just two weeks ahead of filming her movie Dreamgirls by sticking to the plan.
Beyoncé said of the diet: “I lived on water, cayenne pepper and maple syrup for 14 days. It was tough; everyone was eating and I was dying.”

Restricting her food allowance isn’t the only way Anna Friel maintains her youthful allowance, as she told the publication she is also a fan of the celebrity favorite “vampire facelift”.
She said: “Vampire facials involve taking two vials of blood from your arm and re-injecting it back into your skin.
“It’s meant to help your skin heal itself and boosts collagen. It makes my skin really glowy and tight again.”
In addition, Anna Friel has regular Cryoderm treatments prior to red carpet appearances – a treatment which involves the skin being warmed up with a machine to stimulate collagen production and therefore reduce the signs of wrinkles – as well as giving herself a DIY version of the method at home.
The actress explained: “I always have a Cryoderm treatment before a red carpet. People say I look really good afterwards.
“I also do the old-fashioned method at home, where I fill my sink with ice cubes and hold them on my face for a minute.”
Ageing is clearly a huge concern for Anna Friel, who said that she will try absolutely anything in a bid to stay looking young.
Anna Friel added: “I felt sick recently because I found one or two grey hair and I read that curry leave help maintain your hair color, so I mix them with hot water and drink it as a tea.
“I’m always searching for pure, natural skin products and Trilogy is great for that too. Their Everything Balm is fantastic.”
Iron Man 3 premiere in the UK has been delayed due to Margaret Thatcher’s funeral, according to reports.
A Disney spokesperson told Deadline the London gala, originally scheduled for Wednesday, would be moved to Thursday, April 18, to avoid the clash.
“London will basically be in traffic chaos and it would have been difficult logistically,” the spokesperson said.
Iron Man 3 premiere in the UK has been delayed due to Margaret Thatcher’s funeral
Iron Man 3 cast members including Robert Downey Jr. and Gwyneth Paltrow are still expected to appear at the premiere on Thursday.
More than 2,000 guests have been invited to attend the funeral ceremony for former British PM Margaret Thatcher, who died on Monday. It will begin with a procession from Westminster to St Paul’s Cathedral.
Many roads in central London will be closed and large crowds are expected to line the procession route.
Iron Man 3, which also stars Rebecca Hall, Don Cheadle and Sir Ben Kingsley as villain, The Mandarin, will be released in UK cinemas on April 26.
Actress Gwyneth Paltrow, cyclist Victoria Pendleton and TV presenter Emma Forbes are all fans of Bee Prepared when it comes to staying fighting fit.
Bee Prepared, a daily defence vitamin being dubbed the latest “It Vit”, is an immune support vitamin packed with powerful antioxidants and one key nutrient: bee propolis.
The tablets – which come in a pack of 30 and taken daily – are designed to fight colds, flu, hay fever, and are also ideal for sports training and fitness, so it’s no wonder Olympic gold-winning cyclist Victoria Pendleton is a fan.
Bee propolis is a resinous mixture honey bees collect from tree buds, sap flows or other botanical sources, and has been used to treat colds and flu, immunity, mouth ulcers and wound healing.
The tablets also contain powerful nutrients such as astaxanthin, elderberry, olive leaf and beta glucans – a unique blend of ingredients from the hive, field and forest that aren’t often found in a regular diet or multivitamin.
Bee Prepared is an immune support vitamin packed with powerful antioxidants and bee propolis
The stars take a capsule of Bee Prepared – which is available online and from health food shops – once daily to help maintain their healthy immune systems.
Gwyneth Paltrow wrote on her daily Goop blog: “I was recently given <<bee venom therapy>> for an old injury and it disappeared.
“I was recommended bee pollen, raw honey and propolis for various purposes. So far, these recommendations have worked for me.”
Emma Forbes also raved about it on her blog writing: “I am a firm believer in the power of honey.
“When my kids were little I used to make something called <<mummy magic>> which was manuka honey in hot water with lemon juice.
“It worked miracles on sore throats, you name it. To this day I believe honey is a really good cure for all sorts.”
Humans have been using bee propolis medicinally for centuries with Ancient Egyptians, Greeks and Romans using it for wound healing.
During both World War I and World War II, propolis was used in first aid to reduce wound infection and to speed healing.
Modern day bee propolis has been used in skin care, dental care, immune support, and even cancer treatment.
Gwyneth Paltrow may have been launching her new diet cookbook in Beverly Hills on Friday, but it looked more like it was an official unveiling of her amazing legs.
Gwyneth Paltrow, 40, certainly looked like a woman half her age on Friday as she signed copies of her new diet cookbook, It’s All Good.
The gluten-free and low-carb diet plan, seems to be working a charm as Gwyneth Paltrow glowed in a white and black outfit at the Williams-Sonoma store.
She wore a tailored white suit jacket with a black top that created the illusion of having a plunging neckline thanks to a gold checkered pattern, and, of course her black short shorts.
The star added some eye-catching black and gold T-bar heels.
Gwyneth Paltrow launched new diet cookbook It’s All Good
The shoe’s straps went around the actress’ ankles, and while that would not be the most flattering look for most women, Gwyneth Paltrow’s legs were the envy of everyone in the room.
Gwyneth Paltrow’s appearance was obvious a clever marketing technique to promote her new cookbook born out of a strict elimination diet.
It’s All Good is Gwyneth Paltrow’s third cookbook, which she started last year after her health took a turn for the worse.
Tests revealed that she was anemic, vitamin D deficient, and suffering from stress so her doctor prescribed an elimination diet banning coffee, alcohol, sugar, eggs, wheat, meat and processed foods to help her body heal.
However, in a bid to put the fun back into food, Gwyneth Paltrow forces with Julia Turshen to compile a collection of 185 “surprisingly delicious” recipes that adhered to her strict dietary guidelines.
However, It’s All Good hasn’t been well-received by critics.
Touted as “laughable Hollywood neuroticism” by The Atlantic, many have slammed Gwyneth Paltrow for promoting fine fare only a wealthy individual like herself could afford.
Editors at Yahoo!estimated it would cost $300 a day to feed an average American family based on Gwyneth Paltrow’s recipes, including a duck egg fish and tuna salad with Manuka honey that typically rings in at $25 for a jar.
A critic at Eater.com wrote: “It’s All Good is drenched in a chatty faux-populism that could only come from a rich person fearlessly boasting about her life of privilege.”
Gwyneth Paltrow meanwhile appears unfazed by the criticism; she also credits working out constantly for her amazing figure and is a devotee to the Anderson method by celebrity trainer Tracy Anderson.
