The Goop founder admitted during Fortune's Most Powerful Women Summit on Tuesday that her main focus is on Goop, despite the comments made about her by Stewart to Porter magazine. "If I'm really honest, I'm so psyched that she sees us as competition," the Iron Man actress said. "I really am."
"She just needs to be quiet," Stewart, 73, said of Paltrow in regards to her lifestyle website. "She's a movie star. If she were confident in her acting, she wouldn't be trying to be Martha Stewart."
Paltrow's words were kinder than her actions this week. Goop hired Lisa Gersh, the former CEO of Martha Stewart Living, after the actress met Gersh through celebrity trainer Tracy Anderson last year.
The 42-year-old said Gersh took the job because, what else, Goop is in line to make lots of money. "Our base has grown totally organically. We've never marketed,” she said. “There’s a big opportunity there. I just wasn't smart enough to figure it out.”
