You mess with the Goop goddess, you gotta deal with her mama!

Gwyneth Paltrow is no stranger to harsh criticism, and although dealing with the not-so-nice words of critics can be tough, the actress will always have someone to come to her defense—her famous mother Blythe Danner.

While talking to Naughty But Nice Rob, Danner slammed the haters that always pick on her A-list offspring, and offered her two cents as to her Gwynnie always seems to be the target.

"I admire her so much. It [the criticism] doesn't faze her. I think it probably did initially. She said, ‘Mom, I'm going to get this all my life. This is how they see me,'" the famed actress said. 

"I feel she's just extraordinarily accomplished in every area and people don't like that, some people don't like that, people who are bored and sit on their asses all day and just tap away. I mean I don't read any of it, I just find it so disgusting. There is a coarsening of our culture today that is just so tragic."

Blythe is right, the criticism doesn't faze Gwyneth, at least not anymore

Covering the December issue of Red, the 41-year-old actress insists she doesn't care that her personality is polarizing. "This is the thing, it's like the older I get, I realize it doesn't matter what people who don't know you think. It doesn't matter. You're wasting your energy," Paltrow tells the British magazine. "It's like, if your partner comes to you—or your best friend—and says, 'Listen, I want to talk about something you did that hurt me, or I think you could improve,' sit down and listen to what they have to say. But some friend of so-and-sos—it's like, who gives a s--t?"
