- Gwyneth Paltrow and Goop are partnering up with Netflix.
- Paltrow’s polarizing lifestyle empire will have a Netflix docuseries that is expected to debut this fall.
- Valued at approximately $250 million, Goop is just one stream of income for the actress.
Gwyneth Paltrow’s lifestyle empire, Goop, is receiving the Netflix treatment. Paltrow and Goop’s editors will host 30-minute episodes exploring spiritual and physical wellness. The episodes will debut on the streaming service this fall, Variety reported.
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: $60 million
Primary Sources of Income: Actor, founder of Goop
Career Highlights: Academy Award, Golden Globe and Emmy Award winner
Gwyneth Paltrow Net Worth: $60M
In the nearly 20 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 $60 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. And with a new Netflix deal, her net worth is likely to keep growing.
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.
