On being famous: ‘I never wanted to be famous. And I won’t trade on it in any way. It’s not like it’s hard to be respectful and well behaved. I don’t read anything. I don’t Google myself. Good God, no! I have absolutely no constitution for that. I’m curious about everything, except what people have to say about me. It’s the random cruelty I really don’t understand. It’s not good for us. I don’t know, you know, how we go back in time to a better place.’

On her childhood and work ethic: 'My mother was chic but we were broke. Inside the house was chaos and madness... I appreciate everything. I think that there are probably a lot of people that don’t care as much, and it all still works for them.  But I can’t have my name on something and not be totally involved. It can often make things really hard but that’s simply the way I have to be.'

On her marriage: ‘Bruce Paltrow [Gwyneth’s father] had a great quote. I’m almost scared to tell you… but someone asked how he stayed married all these years and he said, “We never wanted to get divorced at the same time.” Now everyone will think there was a period at which we did want to get divorced. But you stay married because you want to be there, despite everything. I don’t know, it seems like it’s just as deserving of effort as anything else is, certainly a career. I guess we both want to be in it.’

On her wardrobe: 'I really don’t shop that much. Also, I have a small closet. It’s a mess! It looks fine to the naked eye, but things are shoved in every corner. Friends come round and say, “But I have more clothes than you.”’
