Gwyneth Paltrow went on Jimmy Kimmel and basically admitted her health advice is bogus

The INSIDER Summary:

  • Gwyneth Paltrow recently appeared on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!”
  • Kimmel asked Paltrow to explain some strange health advice doled out by her lifestyle website, Goop.
  • Paltrow bungled the explanations, admitting: “I don’t know what the f— we talk about!”

You don’t have to be a doctor to opine that the health advice doled out on Gwyneth Paltrow’s Goop is not always fantastic. And in a new interview with Jimmy Kimmel, Paltrow unwittingly revealed that maybe she doesn’t believe the brand’s far-fetched promises either, Jezebel reports.

Paltrow appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! Monday night, and the two spent the a chunk of the interview discussing some of Goop’s recommendations. First up was earthing — aka walking around barefoot — a practice Goop says “could cure your insomnia and more.” (Doctors, obviously, aren’t convinced.)

At first, Paltrow makes a feeble attempt to legitimize the advice. “I don’t actually know that much about earthing […] They say that we lost touch with sort of being barefoot in the earth, and there’s some sort of electromagnetic thing that we’re missing. It’s good to take your shoes off in the grass,” she tells Kimmel. Then, through laughter, she admits: “I don’t know what the f— we talk about!”

She didn’t fare much better when Kimmel inquired about the $ 66 jade egg — literally an egg-shaped piece of stone that Goop says women should put in their vaginas to “increases chi, orgasms, vaginal muscle tone, hormonal balance, and feminine energy in general.” (Gynecologist Dr. Jen Gunter once called it “the biggest load of garbage I have read on your site” in an open letter to Paltrow.)

“So, the Jade Egg is an ancient Chinese practice where women insert the Jade Egg in their lady parts to help tone the pelvic floor,” Paltrow said. But when pressed on how it actually works, she crumbled. 

“I don’t know,” she told Kimmel. “I need to start the Jade Egg practice!”
