Gwyneth Paltrow lasted 4 days as a poor person, caving to cravings that included chicken and black licorice.

The Goopster attempted to live on $29 a week, like someone on food stamps. Her food selections were not exactly the staple of the needy -- cilantro, avocados, scallions, kale and limes.

But it all went to hell when she just had to have chicken, fresh vegetables and more. She posted on Goop, "in fully transparency ... half a bag of black licorice."

Gwyneth gave herself a C minus.

On Wednesday, her rep said ..."She already finished the challenge last week." The rep never mentioned she fell 3 days short.

But Gwyneth herself admits she's really bad at poor.
