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.”
