Gwyneth Paltrow has downplayed her reputation as Hollywood's sweetheart, claiming that she can be vengeful.

The Shakespeare In Love star admitted that she is not as nice as people think.

"Oh yes, I can be mean," she told Vogue. "I can cave in to gossip. I can ice people out and I can definitely harbour revenge.

"In fact, I'm having a situation right now with a friend where I'm feeling angry. But revenge is corrosive. I'll wake up in the morning and think, 'Ugh, I feel terrible', and suddenly realise, 'Ah, that's why. I'm holding on to so much hate'."

Paltrow offers lifestyle advice through her Goop.com newsletters.
