Gwyneth Paltrow Doesn't Understand How She Once Earned 'Most Hated Celebrity' Title


(ABC) -- Gwyneth Paltrow thinks people have gotten the wrong idea about her over the years, and she'd like to set the record straight.

At a taping of the BBC News show "HardTalk" at the 2016 Cannes Lions Festival in Cannes, France, recently, the 43-year-old star admitted being a little puzzled over her selection as Star magazine's "most hated celebrity" in 2013, according to People magazine.

"First of all I was like, 'I'm the most hated celebrity?'" Paltrow asked before laughing. "More than, like, Chris Brown? What did I do?"

Whatever it was that earned Paltrow a place on that list, she doesn't have any intention of changing her ways.

"All I can do is be my authentic self," she said. "But I think there are things about me that make people draw conclusions. For example, there is the perception that I grew up very wealthy and that I was given, you know ... that I was sort of raised with a silver spoon in my mouth, which inspires a lot of resentment."

For the record, the daughter of the late filmmaker Bruce Paltrow and actress Blythe Danner insists she paid her dues to get to where she is today.

"[My father] never gave me anything: I never had any supplementation, he never helped me with my rent, I never had a trust fund," she said. "So the idea that I am spoiled or that I didn't work for what I have, that's just not accurate. But I can see how somebody might have that perception."
