Gwyneth Paltrow Can't Believe People Hate Her More Than Chris Brown

The actress is legitimately confused.

Published June 30th

Gwyneth Paltrow has a reputation for being a Hollywood mean girl, and it seems as that's affected her perception in the real world as she was labeled "most hated celebrity" by Star magazine in 2013. Recently, according to the Daily Mail, the actress explained that she doesn't understand the hate, and thinks there are other celebs more deserving of that title, one of them being R&B crooner Chris Brown.

"First of all, I was like, 'I'm the most hated celebrity?' More than, like, Chris Brown?' What did I do?" she told Stephen Sackur at BBC News' Hard Talk.

When the host told the actress that maybe she "just makes people feel bad sometimes," she still didn't seem to get the picture, adding, "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."

The actress said some folks may have a negative perception of her seeing as she comes from a privileged background, being the daughter of wealthy, famous parents.

"My parents [director Bruce Paltrow and atress Blythe Danner] 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," she said. "But he said, you know, 'You are completely on your own.' So, he never gave me anything."

While Gwyneth sat cozy at the top, Chris came in at No. 20 on the Star magazine list.
