Reports state that there’s a revealing (and character diminishing) expose coming out in Vanity Fair and as a result, Gwyneth Paltrow is keeping her image in tip top shape for the December 2013 issue of Red magazine.

During her interview with the publication (which she edited with her publicist), the “Iron Man” beauty opened up about her critics and revealed how she manages to balance her work flow.

Check out a few highlights from Miss Paltrow’s Q&A session below. For more, be sure to visit Red!

On her approach to haters:
“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. It’s like, if your partner comes to you – or your best friend – and says, like, ‘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 friends or so-and-sos – it’s like, who gives a s***? And for me, obviously, I have it on a very large, global scale. I don’t have it in the village gossip way; but it’s the same thing. That’s why I really don’t read anything. Because if it’s important, it filters down to me.””

On her work/family balancing lifestyle:
“I personally think that the work/life balance for a woman should be exactly what she feels is right for her. And nobody else can set her time schedule. And nobody else can tell her how many hours a week she needs to devote to this, that, or the other. It’s like, go into a room, get quiet with yourself, and ask what is the true answer for you? And f*** what anybody else says. That idea of’God God, if I don’t show up to this concert, all the other moms are going to think I’m terrible.’ Well, so f***ing what. It’s like, when I’m with my kids, I give them everything I have. And when I’m not, I give whatever I’m doing everything I have. And that’s my work/life balance.”

On her view on becoming the next Oprah:
“No, [I don’t see myself as] the next Oprah, but I do think the idea is to grow goop in a number of ways… My dream would be to have somewhere like [a spa]. A center where you could go and have the best people, and detox and reboot and start fresh. I’d love to get to that point one day.”
