Did Martha Stewart just say what we think she said?

The lifestyle expert is getting plenty of attention for her new interview where she throws some serious shade at a few Hollywood starlets.

In the Fall 2014 issue of PORTER magazine, powered by, Stewart has strong words for Goop founder Gwyneth Paltrow and her projects away from the big screen.

"She just needs to be quiet—she's a movie star," Stewart says in the issue. "If she were confident in her acting, she wouldn't be trying to be Martha Stewart." Paltrow's rep declined to comment. 

And what about Blake Lively?

The actress recently launched Preserve, a website composed of articles, recipes and fashion spreads. It's also part e-commerce with a Lively-curated collection of products for sale including jewelry, vases, and vegan hot fudge.

Stewart appears to have some doubts that Mrs. Ryan Reynolds has the passion to carry on the lifestyle website.

 "I had the passion," she explains. "Every entrepreneur talks about the passion you have for your work, and I think that's what's missing with a lot of women in business."

Recently, Stewart told the Huffington Post that comparing Lively to herself was "stupid" and that Lively should "be an actress" instead.

Lively took the feedback very well. "I'm doing something totally different so now I sort of have two careers going on and it'll be interesting to see how it all pans out," she exclusively told E! News in response to Stewart's feedback. "But really what it is, is I have two passions."

What may come as the biggest surprise to readers is Stewart's harsh words for Taylor Schilling.

After watching Orange Is the New Black and serving time in prison herself, Stewart thinks the show is a bit overhyped.

"They could have done it so much better," she said. "That girl [Schilling] is not good enough, the lead actress."

For the record, Schilling received a 2014 Emmy nomination for her performance in the popular Netflix series.
