Gwyneth Paltrow Defends Her Daughter, Saying She’s ‘Not Spoiled’

Apple Martin is growing up!

Gwyneth Paltrow recently opened up about her 16-year-old daughter during the virtual Adobe MAX conference this week, sharing that Apple and her generation have a non-traditional sense of “entitlement” and that it’s helping to spearhead equality as a result.

“We’re laying the groundwork for the change,” she said. “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. The patriarchy itself feels like it’s cracking and starting to embrace a much wider variety of voices and races and genders.”

She added, “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.”

“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,” she explained. “I find it very uplifting and heartening that we all seem to be going in this direction together.”

We agree, Gwyneth! You raised a good one.
