In Tuesday’s Lenny Letter, which focuses on entrepreneurism, founders Lena Dunham and Jenni Konner interview sentient raw almond Gwyneth Paltrow about Goop, her newsletter turned lifestyle empire. Konner asks Paltrow if she has any regrets about Goop, and Paltrow, for her part, doesn’t answer “recommending vaginal steaming” or “selling $1,700 clutches emblazoned with ‘Biggie’ and ‘Pac.’”

No, instead, it’s a problem that plagues many a writer looking back on their earlier work: 

When I started, I was so earnest. Sometimes I’ll see an early incarnation of a page, and I’ll read something I wrote, and I’m just like, “Oh my God.”

This is the most relatable Gwyneth Paltrow will ever be, so enjoy it while you can.
