Gwyneth Paltrow’s often odd diet is lampooned in media circles, however it’s certainly paying dividends if the 44-year-old’s sizzling shoot for US Harper’s Bazaar is anything to go by.
The Academy Award winning actress and founder of fashion/lifestyle site Goop.com has done a particularly racy shoot inside a grocery store for the November issue of the famed fashion mag. Check out the full interview and images here.
It’s clear the 40-something Yummy Mummy is back in fashion for the top fashion title, following on from 42-year-old mother of four Victoria Beckham’s UK Vogue shoot last month.
In the accompany Harper’s interview, Paltrow appears to use much of the editorial space to spruik Goop. However, when it comes to fame she told the magazine: “I’ve learned to navigate it. If I’m somewhere where there are a lot of tourists, then I’m asking for it. But if I go to the market or I’m back-to-school shopping with my kids, it’s not a problem. Some people ask for pictures, but it’s completely fine. I’m able to be a normal mom for the most part.”
The mother of two also reveals she can’t go to bed with dirty dishes in the sink and revealed that her father told her she’d become a “kind of an asshole” when she won her Oscar for Shakespeare in Love in 1998.
“I was like, ‘What the hell?’ I was totally devastated,” Paltrow revealed of the unwarranted parental advice.
“But it turned out to be basically the best thing that ever happened to me. It’s the difference between someone who loves you more than anything in the world giving you criticism and getting it from some bitter stranger on the Internet.
“What my dad said to me was the kind of criticism where I was like, “Oh, my God, I’m on the wrong track.” I’m so grateful to him for doing that. He was such a no-nonsense guy in that sense.”
