KEY POINTS

  • Gwyneth Paltrow stood up for fellow wellness entrepreneur Kourtney Kardashian during an Instagram Q&A
  • The Goop founder slammed the idea that women "need to be in competition"
  • Paltrow also aired her support for Kardashian and Travis Barker

Gwyneth Paltrow has defended Kourtney Kardashian and her wellness platform Poosh amid claims that the reality star ripped off the actress' lifestyle brand Goop.

Paltrow, 49, set the record straight on her thoughts about her fellow wellness entrepreneur during an Instagram Q&A with her fans Friday after one user asked if she was upset that Poosh "copied" her.

"This idea that women need to be in competition is legacy patriarchy bulls—," the Oscar winner wrote, according to People. "There is room for EVERY woman to fulfill her dreams."

"I used to fall prey to this kind of thinking years ago, so I understand where it comes from," she admitted. "Now, I get so happy when I see new wellness businesses. There is a place for all of us."

The "Iron Man" actress ended her message by airing her support for Kardashian and Travis Barker, who tied the knot again in Italy over the weekend. "Plus @kourtneykardash is a really good person and also #KRAVISFOREVER," Paltrow wrote.

Another fan asked Paltrow Friday to share a "photo with Dakota [Johnson]," the current girlfriend of her ex-husband Chris Martin. As a response, the "Avengers" star shared a snap of the two of them smiling as they posed together for a casual selfie.

Paltrow and Martin, who were married from 2003 to 2016, have maintained an amicable relationship as they co-parent their two children, daughter Apple, 18, and son Moses, 16.

Paltrow also gets along well with the "Fifty Shades of Grey" actress, telling a fan during another Instagram Q&A session earlier this year that she "very much" adores Johnson.

It wasn't the first time that Paltrow had talked about her friendship with Johnson. In an interview with Harper's Bazaar in January 2020, she told the magazine she "loves" the 32-year-old actress.

"I can see how it would seem weird because it's sort of unconventional," Paltrow said. "But I think, in this case, just having passed through it iteratively, I just adore her. I always start to think of the ampersand sign—what else can you bring in, instead of being resistant to or being made insecure by? There's so much juice in leaning in to something like that."

When asked by another fan if it was really possible to move on after a divorce, Paltrow replied: "Oh, absolutely. It's a great opportunity to get ruthless with the truth of who you are, what you want and what you deserve."

Paltrow is now happily married to producer Brad Falchuk. They tied the knot on Sept. 29, 2018.
