Gwenyth Paltrow has recalled how it felt to be named the most hated celebrity.
BBC host Stepher Sackur asked the actress how she felt when she found out about the title.
“First of all, I was like, ‘I’m the most hated celebrity? More than, like, Chris Brown?’ What did I do?’”
The 43-year-old says that it might have something to do with being born to famous parents, Bruce Paltrow and Blythe Danner.
“That inspires a lot of resentment. My parents did well, and I was able to go to a fantastic school, and we grew up in New York City, but the minute I left my college to try to pursue acting, my father was really supportive. But he said, you know, ‘You are completely on your own.’
“So, he never gave me anything. I never had any supplementation. He never helped me with my rent. I never had a trust fund. So the idea that I am spoiled or that I didn’t work for what I have is just not accurate, but I can see how somebody might have that perception.”
The actress was declared “The Most Hated Celebrity” by Star Magazine, beating out Kristen Stewart, Anne Hathaway, Jon Mayer, Brown and a other A-list candidates.
