Those who think Gwyneth Paltrow takes herself too seriously need to watch this video clip.

The actress poked fun at her organic lifestyle in an episode of Showtime’s Web Therapy with Lisa Kudrow on Wednesday, showing that she can shrug off her critics with a smile.

Paltrow, 42, plays Maya Ganesh, a new-age caricature who performs a prayer to “call in the light” before the interview even begins.

“Mother, father, God, asking for clearing,” she says, as a deadpan Fiona Wallice, played by Kudrow, humors her. “Fiona and I ask that you wrap us in the warmth of your light, guide us towards a place of authenticity and vulnerability. We are your children and your daughters, please protect us as we go on this journey together. Thank you, Amen.”
