Gwyneth Paltrow has revealed her ultimate “personal philosophy”.
The 41-year-old actress often sends out inspiring messages to millions of fans via her lifestyle website Goop.com.
Although she has been criticized for being forthright in the past, Gwyneth thinks approaching life with complete honesty is the only way forward.
“My personal philosophy in life is that the more you shove under the rug, the more damage you do to yourself,” she explained to Entertainment Tonight. “My doctor has a saying, ‘What you reveal, you heal’, and I really subscribe to that philosophy.”
Gwyneth thinks being free from secrets provides access to unlimited freedom.
The actress views withholding information as an impediment to self-development.
“I think that the more that you are willing to reveal to yourself what your damage is, what your pain is, what your truth is, the more you’re able to really flourish as a human being,” Gwyneth detailed.
This approach could explain recent reports that the Oscar-winning thespian has ended her alleged feud with magazine Vanity Fair.
The actress was rumored to be upset after the glossy’s editor-in-chief Graydon Carter approved a scathing profile in which she declined to take part.
The New York Times reported Gwyneth sent an email to celebrity pals in September asking them not to talk to VF journalists.
“Gwyneth and Graydon spoke on the phone a few weeks ago. They worked out some of their differences,” and insider said last month.
“There may be a story, but it won’t be as bad as it originally was going to be.”
Graydon had supposedly given approval to run an exposé on Gwyneth’s alleged infidelity, in which her relationship with Elle Macpherson’s husband Jeff Soffer would be questioned.
Gwyneth has been married to Coldplay musician Chris Martin since 2003 and the couple share two children together.
