On people speaking negative about her life:
When I was starting out, I would get printouts of what was being written about me that week. At first it was all good things, and then it started to turn. I very quickly learned, 'This isn't good, this isn't helping me.' These were strangers, and they were opining on anything in my life, from where I ate dinner to what movie I chose to do to who I was dating, and I was just like, "This isn't going to be beneficial to my process as a human being in this lifetime." But it was a very important exercise for me in terms of really understanding that one's sense of self is internal. I have had an extreme opportunity to learn that lesson, and I think it's been such a blessed fortune. Occasionally I'll come across something that's just annoying, but for the most part it's irrelevant to me.

On if she encourages her children to take risk:
One hundred percent. In my case, I've borne these two kids into a particularly strange circumstance. They are going to have to fend off a lot and protect themselves from a lot of projections and prejudice about who they are, coming from the family that they come from. My daughter is super ballsy. I always follow her lead. I actually don't need to encourage her to take risks. She likes to push herself; she wants to see how far she can get. It's really inspiring to see that in a young woman.

On her Goop inspiration & whose judgements & perspectives she trust:
I look for people who have a slightly different perspective and are trying to move the needle a little bit and push boundaries. I'm always interested in what's next or what is the new kind of thinking. I have an amazing team, and we find people who resonate with us, but sometimes our scope is still small because we are a pretty small group and we have so much work to do. We get approached a lot. People constantly submit stuff and say, "Will you look at this?" We pick up the phone a lot.

On what Beyonce is really like:
If you met her and you didn't know who she was or what she did, it would be inconceivable to you that she was Beyoncé. Some really famous people, even when they're off-duty, have this energy that is sort of overpowering. She does not have that. She is so dialed down. She's the sweetest mother. She's very shy. You would not believe she is Beyoncé Knowles. You would be like, 'No, that was not her.' And that's why when I see her perform, I'm like, "Oh, shit, I forgot.

  1. She is insufferable. The prejudices HER children are going to have to face? Give. Me. A. Break.
