Actress Gwyneth Paltrow says she has more girlfriends than ever before because she is “less threatening” at the age of 40. Paltrow believes her early success, including winning an Academy Award in 1998, made people wary of her, reports .

“I feel a sisterhood emerging around me. I’m less threatening now that I’m 40 and not 26-with-an-Oscar. They know I’ve been through a lot of pain and suffering – some public, some private – and I keep going. Or maybe it’s just that I was the first one who could afford therapy,” she told Self magazine.
