Did you know that Oscar-winner Gwyneth Paltrow is not really that into acting anymore? I’m shocked! I thought she was just shilling expensive non-medical stone vaginal inserts for fun? Obviously Gwynnie has been checked out of the acting game for some time now, but she decided that, ahead of the release of Ryan Murphy and her husband’s new Netflix series, The Politician, she should let us know that she’s not really that into acting anymore.
People says that during a panel at Advertising Week New York, Gwyneth talked about how she didn’t think she’d be doing more acting work:
“I married a TV writer… he’s fantastic but he sort of dragged me back to the old job… I wouldn’t say I’m that passionate about it anymore…I have had a lot of good luck and a lot of hard work, which led to a really good film career…at a certain point I felt like it wasn’t what I wanted to do …so I did a little pivot.”
Even though Gwyn basically just told you she phones it in when it comes to her acting career, she swears she “really likes” the new show and that “it’s really good.”
Gwyneth also told Today’s Savannah Guthrie a similar tale of being talked into working on an acting project again, saying her hubs had to ask nicely:
“He had to convince me a little bit, I’ve got a pretty big day job over at goop.com, so I sorta put acting on the back burner. But he was writing and he was like, “I think I’m writing a part for you.” And I was like, “I don’t think I can do a part.” And lo and behold, here I am.
It was the best. It was really easy. I think when you trust someone so much and you love someone so much, and they know you so well and you know them, it’s really an interesting set of characteristics to bring to a workplace. So it was really nice.”
She also said that when she was 25 years old, Laura Dern predicted that she’d be a mogul in the future.
“You know what’s funny, I was talking to Laura Dern the other day and she said: “Do you remember when you were like 25 we were sitting on the porch and you said: “I think I want to go into business one day.” And I had no recollection of it!”

No one should be surprised that Gwyneth is not passionate about acting anymore. I mean, it takes up a lot of time coming up with such nonsense shit to sell to rich idiots. Gwyneth is clearly checked all the way out of acting and all the way into Goop’s 13the Dimension of existence, or whatever. She doesn’t even remember the names of her co-stars anymore!
