Now, the 48-year-old actress has shared the real reason she didn’t “feel the need to bring it up.” “I got it so early that there was no Covid testing available,” she was quoted as saying The Hollywood Reporter.
“We couldn’t even get tested for a long time, and when we could get tested for antibodies and all that, much more serious and important things were happening in the world. I didn’t really feel the need to bring it up, but it was interesting, ”he said.
The actor who played a major role in the movie. Contagion – that of the ‘patient zero’ – also explained that possibly she could have contracted the virus on a plane, during a trip to Paris. Back then, she had posted this selfie on Instagram, of her wearing a mask (dated February 26, 2020), with the caption: “On the way to Paris. Paranoid? Prudent? In a panic? Placid? Pandemic? Propaganda? Paltrow is going to sleep with this thing on the plane. I’ve already been in this movie. Stay safe. Don’t shake hands. Wash your hands frequently. 😷 (sic) “
As mentioned before, Paltrow had already detailed his experience in a post on his Goop website. The post featured some products that she claimed aided in her recovery and may also help others suffering from prolonged Covid. They included: consuming a “but flexible” plant-based and ketogenic diet, and not consuming “sugar or alcohol.”
Stephen Powis, England’s NHS National Medical Director, had reacted to her advice, saying: “In recent days, I see that Gwyneth Paltrow is sadly suffering from the effects of Covid. We wish him the best, but some of the solutions he recommends are not really what we would recommend. “
He added: “All influencers who use social networks have a duty of responsibility and a duty to take care of that.”
To this, the actor had replied: “We are not really going to say in Goop that we have never made mistakes, because of course we have made them in the past, but we are very upright and we are careful with what we say. . We always feel like we understand why so much of it [criticism] it becomes clickbait for people. “
