“I’m sure there will be plenty of people who will say horrible things… But you can’t worry about it. People like to gossip. They bond over it. They don’t bond over complimenting famous people. I’m always the first person to defend Gwyneth Paltrow. Or any woman in a position of power, like Martha Stewart or Oprah, who gets burned. Because they have paved the path for so many other women who are doing something they believe in.” Actress Blake Lively refuses to listen to critics as she prepares to follow in Paltrow’s footsteps and launch her own lifestyle website, Preserve.
