Gwyneth Paltrow made her first public appearance following news of her split from husband Chris Martin to promote her cookbook and lifestyle website in Hong Kong on Wednesday.
The actress stunned Hollywood when she announced she was “consciously uncoupling” from the Coldplay star, and she used her site to thanks fans for their support – and on Wednesday she was promoting the Internet endeavor amid reports the project is struggling to survive.
She used the event at the Landmark Mandarin Oriental Hotel to clear up reports suggesting is $1.2 million in debt, telling fans and reporters, “Those numbers are based on filings from a couple of years ago, so you shouldn’t believe everything you read. We’re on the verge of a lot of changes at the website right now and we have some really exciting announcements coming up.”
Paltrow, who was not wearing her wedding ring at the event, added, “I really love my office job. I started Goop because I had a lot of creativity and I wasn’t doing as many films.”
