Gwyneth defended the spa treatment as medicinal, explaining, "This is a thousands-of-years-old practice in Korean spas."
She also agreed with Loehnen, who added, "It feels good… it's not like we're urging people to go out and buy AK-47s."
Despite the criticism, Goop has been growing and its popularity has been skyrocketing. The site is even planning on launching a skin care line next year, and Gwyneth is working hard to make sure the site flourishes.
"I'm at Goop every day," she said. "It’s my main job. I've made commitments to people and I’ve taken their money, so I’m going do everything in my power to make sure that the brand scales."
So what does this mean for her acting career? When asked about being an internet mogul and an actress, Gwyneth explained, "I'm a big believer in the ampersand. I don’t see it as I’m leaving something behind, I see it as this year I probably won’t make a movie or I probably won’t do a TV show or a play, and I’ll focus on the business. It’s our tendency to want to put women in one little category. That’s where we like them."
