LOS ANGELES, Oct 2, (Agencies): Gwyneth Paltrow has decided to share her feelings about the emotional aftermath of the lawsuit stemming from a ski collision, where she was ultimately found not responsible. The actress and CEO of Goop recently participated in an interview where the topic of the lawsuit came up, particularly in relation to the considerable attention her courtroom attire received.

Paltrow ignited the internet with her understated yet captivating fashion choices, often described as “quiet luxury” styles. Reflecting on the scrutiny she faced for her clothing decisions, she remarked, “I was simply getting dressed and preparing for a rather intense experience every day. The outcome in terms of fashion was quite strange to me.”

She added, “That whole situation was rather peculiar; I’m not sure I’ve fully processed it yet.” The two-week-long trial was dissected by the media from every angle, and even though it concluded with a verdict in Paltrow’s favor, it’s evident that the experience left a lasting impression on her.

“It felt like something I had to endure,” Paltrow shared. “At times in my life, it takes me a while to look back, reflect, and truly grasp the meaning of something.”

In 2019, Paltrow found herself facing a lawsuit from Terry Sanderson, who alleged that in 2016, she knocked him over while skiing on a beginner-level course at a Park City, Utah resort, resulting in significant injuries. Sanderson claimed to have suffered “a brain injury, four broken ribs, and other serious injuries.”

According to legal documents obtained by ET, Sanderson initially sought more than $300,000 in damages but later dropped several of his claims in 2022, reducing the scope of the lawsuit. The trial unfolded over a two-week period, featuring a range of allegations from Sanderson, tongue-in-cheek responses from Paltrow, and written testimonies from her children, Apple and Moses, which were read aloud in court.

In March, after just over two and a half hours of deliberation, the jury unanimously determined that Paltrow was not at fault. They awarded her a symbolic $1 in damages, along with attorney fees. Following the verdict, Paltrow released a statement expressing her satisfaction with the outcome. She said, “I believed that conceding to a false claim would compromise my integrity. I am content with the result and extend my gratitude to Judge Holmberg and the jury for their careful handling of this case.”
