Gwyneth Paltrow's Mom Blythe Danner Says Her Daughter Was a 'Rebel From the Beginning'

Gwyneth Paltrow was joined by her mom Blythe Danner on her latest goop podcast

Gwyneth Paltrow has a mind of her own, and according to her mom and actress, Blythe Danner, she’s always been that way.

“I think you came into the world with a very strong self-image. I couldn’t harm that,” Danner, 75, said during a conversation with Paltrow, 45, on her weekly goop podcast. “I may have tried, I may have tried to sway you to be more conforming to what I thought was the proper young girl. You were a rebel from the beginning.”

“You had a strength and you knew who you were and I should have been wise enough and that is what still bothers me is that I didn’t have the wisdom to observe, to know that you were this creature unlike anything I do,” Danner continued.

“I just wonder, are there things left that you still really want to accomplish?” Paltrow asked her mother.

“You know, I’m happy to say that I really, really like my own company and I’ve become a bit of a hermit which I have to be careful of,” she replied.

“I gotta get you on J-Date. I gotta get you on Tinder, mom!” Paltrow joked.
