AceShowbiz - Gwyneth Paltrow is celebrating the first decade of her lifestyle brand Goop by stripping off.
The "Shakespeare in Love" star appears topless in the November Women in Hollywood issue of Elle magazine, posing in a series of skimpy designer outfits from Ralph Lauren and Chanel, and during the accompanying sit-down, the blonde beauty reveals she didn't truly unleash her ambitions until she launched the multi-million dollar company from her kitchen table at her home in London.
Despite early career success and an Oscar win, the actress admits she struggled to fit into male-dominated Hollywood.
"In the '90s, when I was coming up, it was a very male-dominated field," she shares. "You used to hear, 'That actress is so ambitious', like it was a dirty word."
The 47-year-old now feels she's a business leader thanks to her Goop empire, adding that her time away from acting in recent years has clearly paid off - her company was valued at $250 million in 2018, and Paltrow insists that figure is much higher.
"That's an old number," she says. "Of course it's higher."
