Everybody hurts sometimes — even Gwyneth Paltrow.
The actor tells In Style that she cries all the time, and that she sees a therapist. The only real shock here is how surprised Radar Online seems to be, as though we don't already know that all celebrities are deeply troubled, or at the very least in therapy.
It's sort of ridiculous to assume that just because someone is rich and successful she doesn't deal with depression and anxiety. Despite occasional appearances to the contrary, this is a living human being. Paltrow gets nice and introspective in the interview.
The positive thing that drives me is a curiosity and momentum. The negative is a need to validate myself or feel special. Like a childhood need to differentiate myself.
I get it. I feel compassion for this person.
But then, of course, she has to go and say something so Gwyneth Paltrow-y that you wonder if she's doing this on purpose. When asked if she cries out of happiness or frustration:
Maybe out of sadness or uncertainty. Do you feel bad for me now?
See, I did until you said that. You were so close.
