  • Gwyneth Paltrow has taken aim at critics who are slamming her new cookbook for the allegedly costly recipes, insisting sensational bloggers are spreading vicious rumors just to get attention.

    The Oscar-winner's latest culinary guide, "It's All Good," which was released earlier this month, has been panned by reviewers for offering menu ideas that include pricey ingredients such as duck eggs and Manuka honey.

    One critic at Yahoo estimated it would cost around $300 a day to feed a family based on a selection of Paltrow's recipes, but on Wednesday the "Iron Man" star defended her book during an appearance on "Good Morning America," as she demonstrated how to cook up some of her favorite dishes.

    She said, "That is insane. I mean, this meal here is like $2 a person, so I don't know where they're getting (that from). I say I like honey, like raw honey, and a jar is $25, but it lasts for two years. So they were just being sensationalist. There is a lot of inches of column that people need to fill, and a lot of times they just try to get attention and say things that aren't true, unfortunately."

    And the mom-of-two insists fans can always find alternatives to keep the cost down: "For example, I like to use organic chicken, but it's more expensive -- you don't have to."
