Gwyneth Paltrow has confessed that she feels misunderstood by the public.
In an interview with PopEater, the 'County Strong' actress claimed that many people are annoyed by her because she is driven and always strives for perfection in her daily life, characteristics which are easy to internalise as a criticism on their own lives.
She said: "I think there's a part of me that because I think I do a lot, I think my work ethic is the reason why I'm successful.
"I think that a lot of people don't want to put in effort and it's easier to not change, not do something good for you, not work on your relationship, not make yourself a meal, not work out.
"[They're just] p***ed off at someone else doing that. Everything in my life that's good is because I worked my ass off to get it and to maintain it.
"I also think, for example, like, Mario Batali used to make fun of me all the time if I had soy milk in my coffee or if I was doing a cleanse or something.
"He used to grill me like, 'Oh what are we eating? Squeezed out asparagus and seaweed?' And now he's the one doing a cleanse and having almond milk."
However, she insisted that she does not hold others to the same rigid standards by which she lives, adding: "I think people mistake me trying to be the best version of myself for me telling them you're not.
"But I can't please everybody. All I can do is focus on the people who seem to appreciate what I do and put into the world.
"I'll just do what I'm doing because we live in a world now where everybody is able to express their opinion."
