Gwyneth Paltrow Covers 'InStyle UK' January 2013

Gwyneth Paltrow Covers 'InStyle UK' January 2013

Gwyneth Paltrow takes the cover of Instyle UK‘s January 2013 issue.

Here’s what the 40-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On not acting as much as she used to: “I think some people, they don’t understand the choice that I’ve made. I guess it can be seen as a risk because I don’t have the same movie career that I used to have, where I star in movies three times a year.”

On choosing being a mom over being an actress: “I haven’t…starred in a movie since I had my kids. I just look for interesting supporting—biggish supporting parts, and try to do one a year, and that’s my limit. Some women can do it and that’s fantastic, but I can’t. You make choices as a wife and mother, don’t you? You can’t have it all. I don’t care what it looks like.”

On risks: “I’m inherently a risk taker. I think I definitely do things my own way.”

    She is fantastic

  • Sass

    Hey Gwynnie, you’re a pompous a$$. Go away.

  • Chris

    No one’s gonna buy that cuz everyone hates Gwyneth. Her attitude is so annoying. I stopped buying magazines altogether. I always find people I don’t like in them– like Taylor Swift, Carly Jepsen, Lady Gaga & those talentless reality stars. Then it ends up being a waste of my $$. The Internet is better. With Google you can control your own content & ignore the people you don’t care about.

  • Chris

    The other reason why people hate Gwyneth is because she got her start in Hollywood as a result of nepotism. She never had to pay her dues like a lot of other actors who had no industry connections.

  • Lauren

    That cover is terrible!! What’s going on with the makeup around her nose area? Dreadful. Gwyneth, listen. You were never a particularly great actress (your Oscar came bc you gave Weinstein a blowjob and it was a very weak year in your category) and you’ve simply been passed and FORGOTTEN because we have much better, younger actresses to choose from. Jessica Chastain is stealing all “your” roles! You drive the carpool because that’s all you can do now. That, and play the girlfriend role in comic book movies. Oh how far the mighty have fallen.

  • Jen

    Country Strong was a starring role. I guess she forgot about that movie… as most of us have, lol.

  • danf

    eww, bad photoshop work, she looks like Blake Lively

  • Mimi

    Thank you Gwyneth for being a great role model and more importantly, a great mother who is present with her chiildren and spends time with them. Thank you for also admitting that one CANNOT have it all. So many celebrity mothers say that can have it all, but what they really mean is that their careers and egos come first and nannies are raising their children.

  • Urethra Franklin

    Funny thing about this self-important sandflea is that the majority of her films have been bombs and by-the-numbers movies that could have starred anyone, yet she thinks she is some sort of super-thespian. Her attitude in Hollywood is basically looked at as a joke, since she’s such a small player there these days, anyway.

  • Mimi

    @Sass: She’s not pompous, she has class.

  • Mimi

    @Jen: And yet you apparently saw it…,mmn interesting…

  • Yaddle


    LOL! Are you for real? You are “thanking” Gwyneth Paltrow on a celebrity webist? You don’t get out much, do you?

  • Mimi

    Wow, there are a lot of bitter, jealous working mothers on this site today. LOL!

  • sea

    The real Gwyneth is cuter.

  • Tabs

    I respect that she wants to do less acting to be with her kids and husband. I gave up 10 years of military service to stay home and take care of my kids, but I find Gwenette’s comments to be full of sh *T. If that was her reason then why is she off all the time doing that stupid food travel crap and attending every red carpet event isn’t that taking time away from her kids, and I hardly see her with her husband. I don’t think anyone wants to put her in a staring role in a movie it might not do well because Gwenette comes off as a complete byotch, she’s full of herself.

  • Mimi

    @Yaddle: Why don’t you get on your way to work, but don’t forget to drop off your kids at a neglectful daycare center on the way.

  • Yaddle


    I am already at work. I don’t have kids. You bore me.

  • mimi_1

    @Mimi: always awkward when a person with same username as you starts to act like a twa*t

  • Jody

    Gwenyth making excuses for why she only does one movie a yr! Not getting any good gigs ehh?

  • andy

    if she hasnt done anything in years why is she getting magazine covers? just sayinnn

  • Mimi

    @Jody: She’s undoubtedly doing better than you.

  • Snobby snob

    @Mimi:You think that working mothers (that deserve all my respect by the way) have time to waste here? People dislike Gwyneth because she lost all touch with reality and thinks she is better than everybody else.

  • Mimi

    @Snobby snob: I think working mothers are selfish and irresponsible. Bye-bye…

  • Yaddle


    You probably buy cloths from QVC and are fat.

  • hmmm

    She looks like a dude

  • nahhd

    OMG. That’s a scary photoshop. What’s wrong with the person that approved that cover?

  • mickey

    ugly chick

  • LooseLipz

    Her only claim to fame is her friendship with Hagdonna. Oh, and her Goopy stooped website.
    She’s so terribly snobby and her husband ripped off every famous musician and thinks he’s so important…pfft.
    Her mother is the classic beauty. Not her.

  • ex nihilo

    I… I…. I…I…

    i get that this is an interview about YOU, but for eff’s sake, talk about something other than yourself for a brief second.
