Gwyneth Paltrow is multi-faceted. She’s a feminist mogul who can fill a room with the smell of her vagina and bring out the snob in people. And she’s also a tomboy! While talking to People magazine for their Beautiful Issue, Goopy says that she loves going “makeup-free,” which she’s made part of her brand. And according to Gwyneth, that makes her a little bit of a tomboy.
She told People:
“I’ve never been a makeup person really. I always love not wearing makeup. For me, makeup has always meant that I’m going to work… I went to an all-girls school and we didn’t wear makeup. We weren’t dressing up for anyone. All through junior high and high school, makeup never became part of my routine. And I think part of that is because I was always a little bit of a tomboy. I like the feeling of having clean skin.”
Such a tomboy! And yes, Gwyneth’s whole interview with People is just another ad for more Goop shit. Gwyneth put that tomboyish attitude into her Goop brand skincare line, GOOPGLOW, saying that the line is really for people who embrace that SANS FARDS life:
“You can use them if you wear makeup and your makeup will look even better, but the GOOPGLOW line is really fantastic for people who want to get their skin to a place where they look naturally glowy and dewy and don’t have to wear makeup.”
Gwyneth went on to talk about how beauty standards have changed in recent years and how now more “body types, skin colors, hair colors, and cultures are included in that ideal.”
“When I was in my formative years, we were told that beauty was basically a Barbie doll; by the time my daughter was in her formative years, that had changed tremendously. And I’ve always thought that’s real progression. When I think about me being a kid in the early ’80s and what I was shown as examples is much different than what she was shown. As we continue to become more inclusive around our ideas of what is aspirational beauty, we all win.”
“The more you know yourself and accept yourself, the more you accept who you are and what you look like wholeheartedly… I always think there’s sort of an irony that when you really accept yourself–physically–is when you have gray hair. I do think there’s a truth to that.”
I mean, listen, maybe Gwyneth really is a tomboy. I’m sure her next Goop products will be sets of slingshots and BB guns forged by monks and blessed by their dead ancestors. And she does giggle every time she says “vagina”. That’s definitely something an immature boy would do.
