Even Gwyneth Paltrow's celebrity status and goop lab can't make her cool in the eyes of her 15-year-old daughter. Like nearly every other parent of teenagers, Paltrow has been deemed "mortifying" by her children.

According to HollywoodLife, Paltrow revealed this morbid truth while appearing on 'The Ellen Show.' She was interviewed by John Legend who was on the show as a guest host. Both being parents of two, Legend kicked off the interview by asking about her relationship with her two teenagers.

“Is it possible that you, being one of the coolest women on Earth, could possibly embarrass your kids?” asked Legend.

“My daughter finds me mortifying,” Paltrow admitted. “If I do anything in public [that’s] not talking and standing still, she’s like, ‘stop!' She’s 16 in May. If I dance, she turns red.”

Paltrow then went onto to describe her experience living through one of parents' worst nightmares: teaching her child how to drive. She explained how Apple drives them to school.


“She drives us to school now in the morning. It’s crazy. It’s so weird,” she said, before adding “she’s really a good driver. I try to be calm, and the first time, I failed as a mother – because she went through a red light. And, I kinda yelled at her. And then she started crying, and it was just terrible. I felt so bad. So, then, I was ‘okay, I’m going to be chill.’ Now, she’s an amazing driver.”

Paltrow then went on to talk about the real reason why she came on 'The Ellen Show.' Paltrow's Netflix documentary series 'The Goop Lab' premiered in late January. She talked about a very specific candle titled “This Smells Like My Vagina” which costs a whopping $75.

"Well, it’s this amazing brand called Heretic, and they make all clean fragrances, so it was really a feminist statement," she explained to Legend to which he quipped, "It’s also something Apple could be embarrassed by."

“The idea that women have been taught to have a certain degree of shame or embarrassment about their body. So, if you light a candle that says ‘This Smells Like My Vagina’ and put it on the coffee table, it’s a little bit of a punk rock statement,” she added.

Paltrow's 'The Goop Lab' follows her team of scientists who explore topics of today's world like mental health and psychedelics. Unfortunately, the show has not been met with many kind reviews.
