Gwyneth Paltrow Covers 'Self' April 2013

Gwyneth Paltrow Covers 'Self' April 2013

Gwyneth Paltrow is gorgeous on the cover of Self magazine’s April 2013 issue.

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

On her gluten-free diet: “You feel lighter and your emotions get smoother. [Before the diet, I] had a lot of unexpressed anger. I made everyone else’s feelings more important than my own. I’d suck it up and then be alone in my car yelling at traffic or fighting with hangers in my closet when they got stuck together.”

On dealing with problems: “You’re not learning anything unless you’re having the difficult conversations. Dealing with things directly changed my relationships. Sometimes when you get clear about who you are, others get less comfortable because they liked who you were. It’s changed my marriage, too, but he [Chris Martin's] up for the challenge.”

On pushing herself years ago: “I had to sing at awards shows, which was fun but stressful. I’d have a Guinness and a beta-blocker every time. I also was constantly getting on airplanes, trying to knock myself out with sleeping pills and wine, waking up, trying to sweat it out with exercise and a steam, and then working really hard all day. Eventually, I had a panic attack. My body was like, ‘What is happening?’”

On being secure with herself: “I watch Homeland or New Girl. I also like to have martinis with my girlfriends. I feel a sisterhood emerging around me. I’m less threatening now that I’m 40 and not 26-with-an-Oscar. There’s a sense of love and support. I feel really lucky.”

    Gluten and anger… that sounds stupid.

  • Wonder

    @toonces: Either that or she needs to lay off the botox. Her face looks frozen.

  • goodperson

    I dont see where she attacks Brad or Angie.

  • Halli

    Im just shocked she was only 26 when she cried like a lunatic for her oscar. Biatch looked old as f0ck

  • LC

    What did they do to her face? Doesn’t look like GP..

  • Piper

    @maryhadalittlelamb: so the “sisterhood” that was so jealous of her is also the “sisterhood” that is now “surrounds” her? i thought a glutten-free diet made her less self-obsorbed?

  • freya

    I made everyone else’s feelings more important than my own

    Talking about delusions. Why did she created GOOP again and what’s it’s content. This woman is unbelievable. She doesn’t know shit about people who are below her nose. HER DIET IS NOT WORKING. And since it makes her children hungry I guess she does too. judging with her claims there is a depleting oxygen not sufficient enough to carry nourishment in her brains. hence delusional claims.

    just as Mary answered I’m taken by surprise that a stay at home mom can profit $5691 in one month on the computer. have you read this webpage…

  • DailyNightly

    I’m sure no one twisted her arm to sing. I really wish she would go away.

  • Bloom

    She’s just the same old self-obsessed person going on about how much she’s evolved. Beyonce and her get along really well because deep down they think they’re at the pinnacle of society and were born to rule over inferior subjects.

  • NYC

    ME and then ME and then I did this thing and then I did that thing and then it’s back to ME again.

    “I’m less threatening now that I’m 40 and not 26-with-an-Oscar.”
    Honey, you were not a threat at 26, not even with an Oscar. Self-absorbed bitch!

  • Kris

    I don’t know why Gwyneth thinks she was such a threat at 26 with an Oscar. Look at Jennifer Lawrence. She’s 22 and a Best Actress Oscar winner. Completely different public reception.

    It’s not the Oscar or the age, Gwyneth. It’s how you present yourself and people respond to that.

  • YUCK…


  • YUCK…


  • Sea

    The short shot is not bad but the cover is f-ed up. She ha a strange, brassy look to her face. Wee they trying to shop her into Aniston? They could be sisters there.

  • anon

    when, oh when will she fire her publicist(s)? This in no way makes her relevant to other women, except the 1%. What an arrogant, self involved, narcissist. She needs to do something with her public position and enormous wealth for other people. Set that kind of example instead of always over sharing re her digestive system. Very unhealthy for many women who deal w/ eating disorders, she is a bad example, granted there are worse, but her incredulous superficiality at this time in the world is just glaring and SO uncool.

  • elizabeth marinas

    I think Gwyneth looks great on the cover I hope to see more of her in the near future.
