Gwyneth Paltrow has reached the point where she could not care less what her detractors think of her – a defiance she punctuates with expletives several times in a frank new interview.
"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," PEOPLE's 2013 Most Beautiful Woman tells the British magazine Red's December issue.
"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–––?"

She may be PEOPLE's 2013 Most Beautiful Woman but Gwyneth Paltrow insists her kids, Apple, 8, and Moses, 7, don't see her as anything but mom.
"Around the house, I'm in jeans and a T-shirt. I don't really wear makeup. That's what they're used to," she says. As for her husband, Chris Martin, "He'll make a joke about it. If I've gotten fully dressed up, he'll be like, 'Oh, wow! You're Gwyneth Paltrow!' Because he's used to seeing me in like baggy shorts and frizzy hair."
And Paltrow wouldn't have it any other way. With her second cookbook, It's All Good, debuting at No. 1 on the New York Times bestseller list and her next film, Iron Man 3, hitting theaters on May 3, Paltrow credits her workout routine for keeping her looking youthful and less tired.
