Gwyneth Paltrow Covers 'Harper's Bazaar' May 2010
The 37-year-old actress opens up about juggling work, mommy-dom and why she’s been on a steady diet of fried chicken and booze. Check it:
On her lifestyle for two months in Tennessee while filming her new movie Love Don’t Let Me Down: “The director, Shana Feste, didn’t want me to have any definition whatsoever, so I had to stop working out… I was so bad with the food and alcohol in Nashville. If you saw me naked compared to what I looked like when I did Iron Man 2, where I was eating so well and exercising everyday…I’ll get it back together, but I just have never eaten so much fried food and white flour in my life, ever.”
On her husband, Coldplay’s Chris Martin: “He is so great because he’s so supportive of me as an artist. He loves the fact that I’m working and was so fulfilled by this job that I did in Nashville. He’s my biggest supporter. He’s always like, ‘We’ll make it work.’ I really lucked out with him. He’s deeply lovely and special.”
On the little joys in life: “When you’re having dinner with your kids and your husband and someone says something funny or you’re dying laughing because your three-year-old made a fart joke, it doesn’t matter what else is going on. That’s real happiness.”
Iron Man co-star Robert Downey Jr. on Gwyn’s personality: “She knows how to go large and she knows how to be that thing and that person and then the rest of the time she’s wearing a pair of yoga pants and steaming some cod or something.”
FYI: Gwyn wears black Givenchy and an embroidered layered-chiffon gown by Valentino.
