“I’ve been considered, not by everyone … It’s a weird thing to be, I don’t mean in a pejorative way objectified, but, you know, sort of, like, cast as something and put in a box,” Gwyneth said. “And then I think when you come to age, if you have this broad identity as that, like, what does it mean?”

Gwyneth continued: “To get wrinkles and, like, get closer to menopause, and all these things…what happens to your identity as a woman if you’re not f–kable and beautiful?”

Gwyneth went on to say that she believes that internal beauty begins to shine more as the years go on.

“Luckily, what’s happening at the same time in parallel … is you just start to like yourself,” Gwyneth added. “I think you get to a point where it’s almost like your sort of pulchritude is waning in a way and your inner beauty is, like, really coming out, and so it’s this funny shift that’s happening.”

If you missed it, Gwyneth Paltrow recently revealed that she and husband Brad Falchuk don’t live together full-time.
