Apparently, Gwyneth Paltrow’s 13-year-old son not only knows that his mom’s company Goop sells sex toys but thinks it’s “bada**” and “feminist.”
Speaking to comedian Jimmy Kimmel on his ABC late-night show, Paltrow said that her son, Moses (from her marriage to Coldplay frontman Chris Martin), supports Goop’s sex toy business and allegedly applauded her for being a feminist “bada**.”
“Actually, my son said to me the other day, he was like, ‘At first I thought it was really embarrassing that there were vibrators on your website and now I think it’s a great thing!'” said Paltrow.
After Kimmel and the audience laughed, Paltrow added, “He’s like, ‘You’re a feminist, mom. You’re a bada**.”
“Sounds like he’s smart,” said Kimmel. “I don’t think I ever said the word vibrator with my mother in the room. You guys are really way ahead of the game there.”
Obviously, Paltrow’s latest remark is just one example of her wellness button-pushing in a string of wellness button-pushing episodes. Last month, the actress raised more than a few eyebrows when her website Goop announced the sale of a new vagina-scented candle that apparently became a major hit with her fanbase. At the time, Paltrow said the candle was meant to be seen as a pushback against body-shaming.
“It’s a candle, and, um, so, it’s called, ‘This Smells Like My Vagina,’” Paltrow said during an appearance on “Late Night With Seth Meyers.”
“So, it sort of started as a joke. I was with ‘the nose’ Douglas Little for his brand Heretic and we were sort of messing around and I smelled this beautiful thing and I was like, ‘This smells like my vagina!’” she continued. “And I was kidding, obviously. And, we were on mushrooms. We weren’t, we weren’t! We weren’t on mushrooms! I think women, a lot of us have grown up feeling certain degrees of shame around our body or whatever. So this is just a little bit of, you know, a subversive candle for all of us out there.”
Speaking of vibrators, Paltrow jokingly gave herself such a sex toy in a Christmas-themed ad for the site Goop as 2019 came to a close.
Last July, the actress got slapped with accusations of being an “extortionist” for having people pay $5,700 to attend her wellness summit in London that turned out to be little more than a sales pitch for her company while she allegedly remained absent throughout most of the event.
“One attendee told us that a prominent British guest was so appalled by the aggressive Goop hype that she sent a WhatsApp message to fellow attendees saying, ‘GP [what the Goop community calls Paltrow] is a f ***ing extortionist,’” reported Page Six. “Those at the event this weekend were urged to book rooms through Goop at $1,300 for two nights at the Kimpton Fitzroy London Hotel, but some later discovered that rates that weekend started at $250 a night.”
Goop, however, strongly refuted the claims made in the Page Six article as false, saying they received mostly positive feedback from attendees.
