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.”

    @fool: You’re looking at the magic of airbrushing. Just take a look at how she looks in her candids. That’s what Gwyneth really looks like. Her waist is quite boxy and they gave her some definition here. She almost looks freakishly proportioned it’s so obviously digitally modified.

    And of course a good air brushing can get rid of bad, botoxed skin as evidenced by these pics.

    ITA. She is NOT curvy. It’s the way she’s standing in picture that makes her look curvy.

    Her false modesty really irks me. Never in her life did Gwyneth Paltrow think she was dumpy! NEVER.

    OMG! You hit it right on the head. I have a friend who can eat anyone under the table and she weights the same as she weighed in High School. She has three kids, and is even a grandmother now, and she’s still thin as a rail. She eats a full breakfast, lunch and dinner with snacks in between and ends it with ice cream before she goes to bed. Her daughter is the same way. I get full just watching her eat. LOL! So unfair! HA!

    Darling this website is in the business of clicks………..its all about the Benjamins, advertising show, and posting threads that will elicit controversy and more clicks.

    Paltrow is certainly a beautiful woman but those shots are very seriously “Shopped”………..”Reality must take precedence over public relations for nature cannot be fooled” Feynman…………except in Hollywood/at the grocery checkout, and on celebutoid sites, and “Reality shows” that are in the business of non-reality.

    Her quotes don’t make sense; how is making time for yourself looking out for your kids? Is she on crack?

    She’s obviously overcompensating for being a nepotistic parasite.

    yeah, i think most people would be skinny if they had the luxury of working out almost everyday and ate twigs…anyone else find it ironic that she has a cookbook when the tracy anderson method calls for green tea and uh, green tea?

    With Goopy, it’s always the substance of what she says that is a problem, it’s the delivery. I think she comes across more elitist than she intends.
