Gwyneth Paltrow seemed unfazed by the concern surrounding her ‘wellness’ diet as she appeared at a Goop launch event on Wednesday.
Despite raising eyebrows with her daily eating routine, the Iron Man actress paid no mind to the controversy as she celebrated the unveiling of her new Goop Glow Vita-C brightening eye cream with a swanky bash in LA.
The 50-year-old was all smiles for the event, commanding the star-studded room with a speech alongside Maria Shriver – who she also posed for pictures with.
They were joined by a string of other notable names, including Rachel Zoe and Molly Simms.
Gwyneth looked incredible for the party, donning a sequined blue dress, underneath a black jacket, which she paired with chunky black boots.
The Hollywood icon’s appearance comes after she went viral this week for opening up on her eating habits during an interview on the Art of Being Well podcast, with Dr Will Cole.
In the chat, the 50-year-old discussed her routine with the health expert, revealing her preferred dishes and efforts with intermittent fasting.
However, the episode came under fire on social media, with many begging fans not to pay attention to her lifestyle.
‘I eat dinner early in the evening. I do a nice intermittent fast,’ Gwyneth said in one segment. ‘I usually eat something about 12, and in the morning I have things that won’t spike my blood sugar, so that’s why I have coffee.
‘But I really like soup for lunch. I have bone broth for lunch a lot of the days, try to do one hour of movement, so I’ll either take a walk or I’ll do Pilates, or I’ll do my Tracy Anderson.
‘And then I dry brush and I get in the sauna. I do my infrared sauna for 30 minutes and then for dinner, I try to eat according to paleo – so lots of vegetables.’
She concluded: ‘It’s really important for me to support my detox.’
The podcast left many divided, with body positivity influencer Alex Light describing her ‘wellness routine’ as ‘hugely disordered eating.’
‘It makes me feel genuinely sad for her or for anyone who has been led to a point where they believe that this is what “wellness” looks like,’ she said on Instagram.

‘Here’s the thing: you don’t need to intermittent fast or time-restrict your food.
‘Bone broth for lunch, especially when you’ve not eaten any breakfast, is just not enough sustenance. You don’t need to eat “paleo” and you don’t need to detox.
‘Wellness is about being physically and mentally well. Starving yourself isn’t it.’
Jameela Jamil also urged followers not to pay attention to similar discussions.
Although she didn’t reference Gwyneth, she added on Instagram: ‘Don’t listen to celebrities about what they eat.
‘Most of them have some sort of disordered eating. Not all. But most.
‘Just scroll on and talk to professional nutritionists. Not a bunch of traumatized women who are mocked and scrutinized over their appearance daily.’
