-Our first guest tonight
is an Emmy, Golden Globe, and Academy Award-winning
actress as well as a “New York Times”
bestselling author. She is also the founder of
the lifestyle brand, Goop. And her next project,
a docuseries called “Goop Lab,” begins streaming on Netflix
on January 24th. Let’s take a look. -This is a sacrament so we can be with
the spirit of the mushroom. So, blessings to everyone. ♪♪ -Cheers.
-Okay. -Moss seed. ♪♪ -Earthy.
-Yeah. -It’s so funny when
you start something, and then you’re like,
“No regrets.” Too late.
-Buckle up. -Please welcome to the show
Gwyneth Paltrow, everyone. [ Cheers and applause ] ♪♪ ♪♪ Welcome to the show.
-Hi. -I’m so happy you’re here. -Thank you so much
for having me. -So, that, in case it wasn’t
clear, they were — That was an episode
of your show about psychedelics. -Correct. -And those were actual people
who work for Goop. -Goop staffers.
-Goop staffers. -Drinking mushrooms
and mushroom tea in Jamaica. -Gotcha.
-Yep. -And was that something when you
offer that up to your staff, is that a thing
where everybody signs up? -Yep.
-Yeah. -Everybody signed up
for that one. -When you find out
they’re for work because I’ve reached the age
where I’m not gonna do mushrooms unless it’s for work.
You know what I mean? [ Laughter ]
-Exactly. Yeah. Of course. -Like that’s the only way I
could get away with it at home. If I was like,
“This is for work.” [ Laughter ] This is the time of year
because Goop is, you know, a lifestyle brand and a lot of
cleanses, a lot of detoxes. And I think, obviously, this is
the time of year, January, where a lot of people
are considering that. -Yes. Super Bowl is detoxing.
-Yeah. Are you personally doing
anything in January? -I keep saying
that I’m gonna start one. -Yeah.
-I still have not. -Okay, gotcha.
We’re running out of January. -I know. I know. I know.
[ Laughter ] I may do it in February. -February.
-Yeah. -That’s really
the cool new thing. [ Laughter ] You’re like, “Oh, my God,
February is the new January.” January is about, you got to
like kind of keep eating your way
through post-Christmas. -Yeah, exactly. Exactly.
[ Laughter ] -Is there one you recommend? I mean, you’ve done some —
-Have you ever done one before? -I think I’ve done a week-long
juice cleanse once, yeah. -There’s one actually
called Clean Seven, which is only seven days.
-Yep. -Where it’s like smoothies
and a clean lunch. But there’s still food
and there’s smoothies. So that one’s a really good one. -Gotcha. And are — Is the
mushroom tea in that one? [ Laughter ] Because then I feel like if you
were on good enough mushrooms, you would just get through
seven days no problem at all. [ Laughter ] Just tell yourself,
“This salad is pizza.” And then you’re good.
-Right, exactly. -You used to live in New York.
You grew up here. -I did.
-You live in L.A. now. [ Cheers and applause ] I don’t know if you have to do
that when we’re here. -Why?
[ Laughter ] -I have people here where I’ll
say, “You’re from St. Louis.” And somebody will be like,
“I’m from St. Louis,” and then they’ll clap. But, like, we’re in New York.
[ Laughter ] -True.
-But do you — I mean, again, January is maybe an interesting time
to come back. Are you happy
to be back here in January? -I’m always happy to be back in
New York. I love New York. It’s a great — It’s funny. This time, I stayed near
the house where I grew up. And it was very nostalgic
for me. -Yeah, that’s great. I also want to ask you
about a new product. Goop released
a product this week that got a lot of attention. It’s already sold out. I would love you to explain it. -Okay.
[ Laughter ] Well, it’s a candle.
-Yeah. -And so, it’s called
“This smells like my vagina.” [ Laughter ] So, it sort of
started as a joke. I was with the nose Douglas
Little for his brand, Heretic, and we were
kind of messing around. And I smelled this beautiful
thing, and I was like, “This smells like my vagina.” And I was kidding, obviously.
[ Laughter ] And we were on mushrooms.
[ Laughter ] No, we weren’t.
We weren’t on mushrooms. We weren’t. We weren’t.
-Yeah. -So then, it actually became
kind of a funny thing where it was, “A,”
really funny to us. But also a little bit punk rock. And, you know, I mean, I think
women, a lot of us have grown up feeling certain degrees of shame
around our body or whatever. So this is just a little bit of,
you know, subversive candle
for all of us out there. -And I have to tip my cap
to the marketing of it because I will say,
in my entire life, I have never
heard more people say, “Have you heard
about this candle?” [ Laughter ] “There’s a new candle.
Have you heard?” -Right.
[ Laughter ]
