Gwyneth Paltrow and Goop have partnered with Netflix.
Paltrow’s polarizing lifestyle empire now has a Netflix docuseries
Valued at approximately $250 million, Goop is just one stream of income for the actress.
Gwyneth Paltrow’s lifestyle empire, Goop, is now featured in 30-minute episodes exploring spiritual and physical wellness on Netflix. The episodes went live on the streaming service in the fall of 2021, and have received mixed reviews from consumers.
Despite Goop’s cult-like following of devotees, some outlets have rebuked Netflix for giving Paltrow and her often questioned lifestyle brand a bigger platform. Since Goop launched as a newsletter from Paltrow’s kitchen in 2008, the company has been heavily accused of and scrutinized for outlandish and borderline dangerous medical claims — and for selling products or ideas that are unattainable for the average consumer. Despite the drama, here’s a look at how Paltrow has expanded her net worth by expanding her career.
Birthdate: Sept. 27, 1972
Net Worth: $200 million
Primary Sources of Income: Actor, founder of Goop
Career Highlights: Academy Award, Golden Globe and Emmy Award winner
Gwyneth Paltrow Net Worth: $200M
In the nearly 25 years since Paltrow accepted her Academy Award for “Shakespeare in Love,” her celebrity has risen to icon status and her Oscar has afforded her a luxury only extended to a few in Hollywood: selectivity. Her fortune of an estimated $200 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth, likely has something to do with the shifting of her focus away from acting projects in the last decade. However, she appears busier than ever with her second career in elevating and expanding Goop. As of March 2018, the private company was valued at approximately $250 million, according to financial data company PitchBook.
Gwyneth Paltrow’s Personal Life
Since Paltrow’s mainstream debut in the 1990s, her personal life has been a huge subject of interest for tabloids and gossip columns. She’s dated fellow A-listers like Ben Affleck and Luke Wilson and was even engaged to Brad Pitt. But even if you know nothing else about Paltrow’s romantic history, you probably know how her marriage to Coldplay frontman Chris Martin ended. In 2014, after 10 years together, the pair released a joint statement and announced their decision to “consciously uncouple.” Almost immediately thereafter, the term was mercilessly mocked in pop culture.
In spite of the gibes, Paltrow and Martin, who are parents to daughter Apple, 14, and son Moses, 12, appear to relish in unconventionality. Paltrow married Brad Falchuk, a TV producer, last September, and the newlyweds honeymooned in the Maldives with Paltrow’s children and Falchuk’s children from a prior marriage and Martin.
