Gwyneth Paltrow spoke during Fortune’s Most Powerful Women Summit Tuesday evening, where she was asked questions about Goop and her new CEO Lisa Gersh — who coincidentally used to be the president and CEO of Martha Stewart Living. Naturally, that led to addressing the potpourri-scented elephant in the room, about that time Martha Stewart said Gwyneth Paltrow should “be quiet and stick to acting and stop trying to be Martha Stewart.” Fair points all around.
First of all, no one has ever said anything bad about me before, so I’m shocked and devastated! I’ll try to recover. If I’m really honest, I’m so psyched that she sees us as competition. Like, I’m so psyched. I really am.
