Gwyneth Paltrow Covers 'Self' May 2011

Gwyneth Paltrow Covers 'Self' May 2011

Gwyneth Paltrow shows off her bikini bod in Anika Brazil swimsuit on the cover of Self magazine’s May 2011 issue.

Here’s what the 38-year-old actress, who rocked J Brand “Rio” shorts in Leon on the cover, had to share:

On being in the best shape of her life: “I never thought that I’d be considered to have a good body. I was bony up top and kind of dumpy on the bottom. But my trainer, Tracy Anderson, completely changed my legs, butt, arms and stomach. I feel better than ever, too.”

On making her workouts more intense: “If I’m prepping for something or I’ve been eating a lot of pie, I do two hours a day, six days a week for two weeks.”

On her inspiration: “I go with my instincts. We’re capable of pushing ourselves and doing whatever we want to do. You live one time, so be your best self.”

On making time for herself: “Taking care of yourself is being there for your kids, like how on a plane, they tell you to put on your oxygen mask first.”
