Gwyneth Paltrow: Depression shouldn’t be taboo
Published on October 19th, 2015 by Gioia & Filed in General,Gwyneth. Add Comment

Gwyneth Paltrow insists postpartum depression is nothing to be ashamed about.

Go To

The 43-year-old actress struggled following the birth of her son Moses, her second child with now ex husband Chris Martin, back in 2006.

Gwyneth has never made a secret of her battle with depression, but the topic has been hitting headlines once again after new mother Hayden Panettiere revealed this week she has been hospitalised as she receives treatment for the mood disorder.

As she attended the La Mer Celebrates 50 Years of an Icon event in Los Angeles on Tuesday night (14Oct15), Gwyneth said she doesn’t feel the topic should still be the taboo subject that it is.

“Luckily, [my case] was low grade enough that I didn’t have to be hospitalised, but it’s a very debilitating thing, and I think there’s so much shame around it and there shouldn’t be,” Gwyneth told Entertainment Tonight. “It’s something that happens, it’s something that befalls many women after they have a baby. So I try to wrap [my head around] the whole thing, and even at the time, it was very difficult to go through, that it was happening,”

Gwyneth is now in a very content place in her life, as she is mother to two wonderful children and is in a happy relationship with boyfriend Brad Falchuk.

While she acknowledges the postpartum depression was a difficult experience to go through, Gwyneth now feels that it was something of a blessing in disguise.

Dealing with the issue meant Gwyneth had to face some of her other problems, which she has now managed to move on from.

“For me, it ended up being a wonderful opportunity to explore some underlying issues that I think the depression kind of brought out,” she said.

“So I try to wrap [my head around] the whole thing, and even at the time, it was very difficult to go through, that it was happening. It was in my life for a reason and I tried to use that opportunity to try to really get in there and heal some stuff.”

Gwyneth Paltrow Says Industry Discouraged Women From Being ‘Ambitious’
Published on October 19th, 2015 by Gioia & Filed in General. Add Comment

Although there’s still a long way to go, Gwyneth Paltrow said Hollywood is finally on the verge of creating a new archetype for women who can be both maternal and sexual.

Paltrow said at Variety‘s Power of Women luncheon that “ambition” was an undesired trait in actresses during her early days in the industry.

“When I was a young women in Hollywood, if you were a woman focused on building your career, you were labeled ambitious, and that was a bad word,” she said on Friday at the Beverly Wilshire Four Seasons.

“So, I was decidedly not, and developed a ‘Oh, how could this happen to me?’ approach.”

Paltrow said that there’s been a shift in the industry: “Power of women rings a bit differently.”

The Oscar winner said Hollywood is finally “on the verge of creating a new archetype,” where it’s possible for a woman to be “naturing, maternal, sexual.”

“Fear of how we are perceived seems to be waning and things are being brought to the life. We are empowering each other. We are banding together to support each other. Yes, we suffer some slings and arrows along the way, not me obviously,” she teased. “I feel those slings and arrows fortify us.”

She also credited Variety‘s interview with Ashley Judd in which she revealed being sexually harassed by a Hollywood mogul as a sign that more women are starting to speak out.

“There no longer seems to be the fear of retribution,” she said. “We are empowering each other. We are encouraging each other to change business models, to try new ventures. We are banding together to support each other, to give each other advice, to change our existing culture. I believe that we are on the verge of creating a new antitype.”

Paltrow was recognized for her work with the L.A. Kitchen, which trains chefs from disadvantaged backgrounds. The chefs prepare meals using fruits and vegetables that would otherwise go to waste. The organization has a goal of serving 2,000 to 3,000 meals a day to the general public, and 3,000 to 6,000 more to senior citizens by 2016.

Gwyneth Paltrow concedes defeat on $29 food stamp challenge
Published on April 18th, 2015 by Gioia & Filed in General. Add Comment

Gwyneth Paltrow has thrown in the organic, brushed cotton towel on her attempt to eat like someone on food stamps.

The posh-living Hollywood actress announced Thursday that after four days of attempting the seven-day #FoodBankNYCChallenge – where participants subsist on just $29 of food for a week — she was finally broken by a craving for chicken.

“As I suspected, we only made it through about four days, when I personally broke and had some chicken and fresh vegetables (and in full transparency, half a bag of black licorice),” she confessed on her website, Goop.

Paltrow said she was inspired by celebrity chef Mario Batali to take up the challenge, which asks people to try living off the same food budget that low-income families receive on SNAP, the U.S. Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), better known as food stamps.

When Paltrow posted a picture last week of what she had chosen to buy with her $29, she was immediately mocked. Many were baffled by her shopping choices, wondering why she would stock up on cilantro, kale and seven – count ’em, seven – limes when her dollar would have gone a lot further with a bag of pasta and a few jars of tomato sauce.

Others were angrier, calling her experiment “poverty tourism” that “makes a mockery of those who don’t have a choice.”

Still others pointed out that the SNAP program doesn’t really expect people to get by on just $29 a week, as it’s a supplemental program that takes into account users’ other sources of income.

While Paltrow wouldn’t say that she had failed the challenge – “I would give myself a C-” – she also suggested she never expected the experiment to work. The real purpose, she said, was to raise awareness and money for the Food Bank For New York City, which is trying to fight against food stamp cuts.

“My perspective has been forever altered by how difficult it was to eat wholesome, nutritious food on that budget, even for just a few days — a challenge that 47 million Americans face every day, week, and year,” Paltrow wrote.

She said the food system needs to be revised so everyone has a chance at a healthy meal.

“I’m not suggesting everyone eat organic food from some high horse in the sky. I’m saying everyone should be able to afford fresh, real food. And if women were paid an equal wage, families might have more of a choice in the grocery aisles, not to mention in the rest of their lives.”

Gwyneth Paltrow tries living off $29 food stamp budget
Published on April 14th, 2015 by Gioia & Filed in General. Add Comment

How tough is it to live off food stamps? Thanks to an online challenge going viral, one celebrity is going to find out.

Gwyneth Paltrow recently posted a photo on Facebook of groceries she had purchased, and wrote, “This is what $29 gets you at the grocery store — and this is what families who rely on SNAP (formerly known as food stamps) have to live on for a week. We’re going to walk in their shoes and see how far we get.”

SNAP — also known as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program — offers nutrition assistance to millions of low-income families across the country.

The challenge comes as part of the #FoodBankNYCChallenge that’s being promoted by famous chef Mario Batali.

It asks participants to “walk in someone else’s shoes” for one week and “understand what our friends and neighbors are going through,” Batali wrote on the Food Bank for New York City website. The challenge involves living off a food stamp budget of $1.38 per meal.

“We will be better equipped to find solutions,” Batali wrote.

Paltrow also announced that she would be donating to the Food Bank for New York City.
