Gwyneth Paltrow intends to ‘literally disappear from public life,’ claims she is not motivated by money

Gwyneth Paltrow previously ditched her Hollywood career to prioritize working on her lifestyle brand Goop, but now the former actress says she is planning her escape from the limelight all together.

In a new interview with Bustle, Paltrow admits that while she is “not ready to sell” her expanding empire, she has thought about what her next move will be. “I will literally disappear from public life. No one will ever see me again,” she reveals, noting she does not think she would sell Goop for “a few more years.”

The daughter of actress Blythe Danner and producer Bruce Paltrow, the 51-year-old said she has never derived personal pleasure from her fame.

Paltrow also said money has never been her motivator.

“I could never get attracted to the really rich guy… And I don’t make choices to build value in the wrong way,” she shared.

“Because now, if I fully take a weekend off, sometimes I’ll start to feel anxious, like, ‘Oh, my God, what should I be doing?’ Even when I’m trying to relax, I’ll think, ‘OK, I’ll sit down with a great novel!’ And it’s like, Jesus, can you not just sit down and daydream?”

Even as she matures, Paltrow said it is easier to embrace a more carefree lifestyle: “I don’t give a f— what anyone says about me, thinks about me, this is who I am.”
