Is Gwyneth Paltrow Trying To Build A Martha Stewart Empire?
Is Gwyneth Paltrow trying to become this generation's Martha Stewart? We investigate.By Lexie Hammesfahr | November 12, 2015
In 2014, Martha Stewart made a rather insulting comment about Gwyneth Paltrow's lifestyle newsletter, Goop, saying: "She just needs to be quiet. She's a movie star. If she were confident in her acting, she wouldn't be trying to be Martha Stewart."
Ouch. But quite frankly, at first glance, you might think that's exactly what Paltrow was doing — trying to build a lifestyle empire like Stewart's.
And she is, but really, she's just doing what Stewart did in the post-Julia Child era. She's updating the formula.
