Gwyneth Paltrow wanted to scrap GOOP to halt criticism
Gwyneth Paltrow considered scrapping her lifestyle website GOOP.com after she was bombarded by "mean" comments.
The Oscar winner, known for her health-conscious diet and strict exercise routine, began to hand out well-being advice on the Web in 2008 in a weekly newsletter to subscribers on everything from holistic medicine to the best places to eat in London.
But her portal became a target for cynics who accused the actress of being unqualified to dish advice, and the star admits she came close to closing the site down.

She tells Harper's Bazaar, "There were a couple of times when I thought, 'I'm just gonna stop doing it. People are so mean to me. I don't want to do it'. But then I was like, 'Who cares what some lame person out there says?'"
