Martha Stewart may have started a feud with Gwyneth Paltrow and the A-list actress couldn’t be happier about it. The lifestyle mogul took a shot at Gwyneth’s lifestyle website, Goop, reportedly saying, “She just needs to be quiet. She’s a movie star. If she were confident in her acting, she wouldn’t be trying to be Martha Stewart.”
The Shakespeare in Love actress shrugged off the insult with a laugh at Fortune‘s Most Powerful Women Summit on Tuesday, joking that no one has ever said anything bad about her before. “I’m shocked and devastated. I’ll try to recover.”
Gwyneth quickly added that she is psyched her website is seen as competition. When asked about how she deals with criticism, Gwyneth said she doesn’t take it personally. “I see it as a projection [of where they are],” she responded.
It was announced earlier this week that Goop’s new CEO, Lisa Gersh, was none other than the former CEO of Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia, so this may not be the last time we hear from Martha on the rival website. ~Kelly Townsend
