It looks like this Oscar-winning actress isn’t interested in making movies anymore and instead wants to follow in the footsteps of another business-savvy star so she can build her own “empire.” According to a new rumor, Gwyneth Paltrow is ready to take her GOOP blog to the next level as she is striving to be the next Jessica Simpson. Here’s what we’re reading:
Gwyneth Paltrow is giving up showbiz for, well, business. A source says that after the 33 Dias actress wraps her next few films, she will focus on growing her lifestyle website, Goop, and the fitness company she co-owns with trainer Tracy Anderson. Paltrow is hoping to emulate the career of another multitalented star: Jessica Simpson! “She admires Jessica’s empire,” the source says of the Academy Award winner, 40. “She wants to make a killing.”
The two-time cookbook author’s rep says she has no plans to give up acting altogether, telling the Feb. 25 issue of Us Weekly, “She won’t quit acting. Her plan is to do one, maybe two supporting parts a year.”
Hmm… what do you guys think? Does anyone really have a chance to be the next J.Simp? The woman has made a billion-dollar fortune selling her clothing line and shoes. Despite her quirky persona, you have to hand it to her that she is one smart cookie!
