In 2013 Star magazine created a ranking list of the most hated celebrities, and Gwyneth Paltrow was assigned the number one position. This week she stopped by BBC News’ Hardtalk where she discussed her thoughts about the title.

“First of all, I was like, ‘I’m the most hated celebrity? More than, like, Chris Brown?’ What did I do?”

(Chris was by the way, in the number 20 spot.)

The host of the show Stephen Sackur said “but maybe you just make people feel bad sometimes,” to which Gwyneth replied:

“All I can do is be my authentic self, and if you know me, then you know who I am, and that I have fun and eat and am so appreciative for my life. But I think there are things about me that make people draw conclusions.”

Gwyneth has been more controversial in recent years since she dived in business and started her GOOP website, where she and her “experts” dole out life advice that can veer on the spectrum from pretentious to questionable. However she also thinks that her upbringing is partly what sets people off, although she swears she wasn’t spoiled.

“That inspires a lot of resentment. My parents [director Bruce Paltrow and actress Blythe Danner] 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…so the idea that I am spoiled or that I didn’t work for what I have is just not accurate.”
