Gwyneth Paltrow Isn’t Scared of Martha Stewart

Gwyneth Paltrow is never scared. When US Weekly asked the 42-year-old actress what she thought about Martha Stewart telling her to “be quiet,” Paltrow sarcastically replied, “No one has ever said anything bad about me before, so I’m shocked and devastated. I’ll try to recover.” You hear that Stewart? That’s big fat “whatevs.”

Paltrow is also not worried that her hiring former MSLO CEO Lisa Gersh would anger Stewart even more. In fact, she’s giddy about the hate.

“If I’m really honest, I’m so psyched that she sees us as competition,” she said. “I’m so psyched. I really am.”

Is there anything more ridiculous than two privileged, obscenely rich people feuding? No, there is not. Especially when they’re basically carbon copies of each other, like Paltrow and Stewart.
