Gwyneth Paltrow Admits That Daughter Apple Has A “Sense Of Entitlement That’s Beautiful”

"I find it very uplifting and heartening that we all seem to be going in this direction together"

One of the most talked-about women in the world, Gwyneth Paltrow’s new age opinions aren’t limited to her luxury health brand, Goop.

Aside from her vagina-scented candle and jade eggs, The Politician star has now made headlines for her opinion on a highly-debated topic—gender equality.

During an Adobe MAX conference on October 21, Paltrow opened up about the new generation of women who she believes will usher in a new era of workplace equality, particularly her doppelganger daughter, Apple.

“We’re laying the groundwork for the change,” she replied. “I think the #MeToo Movement was a big part of that change. I think Black Lives Matter is part of that change. What we’re saying collectively as a culture and a society is that we are done with that paradigm of patriarchy of white men,” she continued.

“The patriarchy itself feels like it’s cracking and starting to embrace a much wider variety of voices and races and genders. By the time my daughter is in the workforce, those girls are not going to stand for it. When I see my daughter with her friends, they are so empowered.”

Paltrow continued by discussing how it feels to see her daughter’s generation become more confident when it comes ot dismantling patriarchal norms.

“They have, and I mean this word in the best possible way, a sense of ‘entitlement’ that’s beautiful. It’s not spoiled, [they] are here for what the boys are going to get too,” Paltrow said. “I find it very uplifting and heartening that we all seem to be going in this direction together.”

Earlier this year, the Goop Founder opened up about her philosophy when it comes to parenting teenagers.

“I won’t let them be public on any social media or anything like that, I try to keep them out of the public eye as much as possible,” she told Rob Lowe on his Literally! With Rob Lowe podcast. “I’ve really have tried not to just hand them things.”

“I think, it’s really been interesting to be [Apple’s] mother, because as she’s come into her own, it’s almost like, you know, it’s like watching her harness her own power with every passing year, and I’m just like, ‘What is this child here to do?'” Paltrow admitted.

“She’s so bright and so funny… she’s hilarious.”
