It doesn't make a whole lot of sense why people would hate on Gwyneth Paltrow, considering she isn't the news a lot for saying outrageous or controversial things. Maybe people are jealous that she's married to Coldplay rock star Chris Martin. But regardless, Paltrow could care less about the haters. She's just going to live her life.

"This is the thing, it's like the older I get, I realize it doesn't matter what people who don't know you think. It doesn't matter. You're wasting your energy," Paltrow told British magazine Red in the December issue. "It's like, if your partner comes to you -- or your best friend -- and says, 'Listen, I want to talk about something you did that hurt me, or I think you could improve,' sit down and listen to what they have to say. But some friend of so-and-sos -- it's like, who gives a s--t?"
Paltrow isn't on her own as far as fighting off the random criticism and negative attention as an A-lister. Her famous mother Blythe Danner is behind her all the way
While talking to Naughty But Nice Rob, Danner said: "I feel she's just extraordinarily accomplished in every area and people don't like that, some people don't like that, people who are bored and sit on their asses all day and just tap away. I mean I don't read any of it, I just find it so disgusting. There is a coarsening of our culture today that is just so tragic."
Life in the spotlight is undoubtedly a bizarre and vulnerable existence, but stars like Paltrow seem to have adjusted to the mayhem and have a reasonable grasp on reality.
