Gwyneth Paltrow Covers 'Good Housekeeping' February 2011

Gwyneth Paltrow is all smiles on the cover of Good Housekeeping magazine’s February 2011 issue.

Here’s what the 38-year-old Country Strong actress had to share:

On why she’s seldom photographed with husband Chris Martin: “If I’m looking grumpy in public or if Chris and I leave a restaurant separately, it’s only because we don’t want to encourage photographers.”

On Chris: “I can depend on him. He makes me laugh. He’s really appreciative of me. You know, he makes me feel special.”

On fighting post-partum depression after son Moses‘ birth: “I felt like a zombie. I couldn’t access my heart. I couldn’t access my emotions. I couldn’t connect. It was terrible, it was the exact opposite of what had happened when Apple was born. With her, I was on cloud nine. I couldn’t believe it wasn’t the same. I just thought it meant I was a terrible mother and a terrible person.”

On learning to play guitar for Country Strong: “It was so much fun to pick up a new skill. I can be a perfectionist, so I really practiced. And between Chris’s help and the director needing me to be prepared, I was totally ready when the time came.”
