Joan Collins reportedly calls Gwyneth Paltrow's clean eating a 'fad'


Gwyneth Paltrow's name is synonymous with her lifestyle publication, Goop, and her clean-eating methods. Actress Joan Collins reportedly evoked Paltrow's name—and not in the best way—when discussing healthy lifestyle trends during a recent interview with Leading Britain's Conversation (L.B.C.), per the Daily Mail.

"All of this stuff that [Paltrow] does not eat anything for a week and just drinks goat's milk? I mean what is that? I guess it is a fad . . . "

Collins, who spoke of her own healthy diet during the interview, reportedly went on to shame those devoted to the strictest of healthy foods.

"I see these people taking their green juices and their kale and quinoa—that tastes of cut up cardboard. Green tea is disgusting. It is like ink. I will have a big cup of builder's tea, and I have two cups of proper coffee in the morning. I think there is too much of this clean eating."

In 2015, at the launch of her fragrance, "I Am Woman," Collins spoke to the Daily Mail about her own go-to diet secrets, including her affinity for avocados and vitamin C, E, and omega oils.

"The quality of what you eat is as important as the quality of the products you use," she said. It sounds very similar to the Goop ethos, although Collins would most likely disagree.

Vanity Fair has reached out to L.B.C. and to Collins for comment. A representative for Paltrow declined to comment.
