Gwyneth Paltrow’s “crazy fit” body covers the new issue of Women’s Health. I love those bikini bottoms on the cover. I don’t know how practical they are, but they’re cute. And styling them with a grey cropped tee works too.
As for the excerpts that have been released so far, G talks about her schedule – drop off the kids, dance cardio, work on GOOP – and her diet. A lot of salads and chicken is basically my takeaway from this. God. Chicken. I hate chicken. But boring chicken is what it takes to maintain, I guess.
Interestingly though, it does sound like G’s rewriting some of her previous remarks about food and, specifically what she feeds her children. As you recall, she took a lot of heat for being judgy about fast food kids. And then the Brange gets papped at the drive-thru McDonald’s. So… now G’s approach is much more moderate, at least publicly:
“My food philosophy is: Nothing should be ruled out. I don’t believe in saying, ‘You’re not allowed that.’ If my kids want a Shirley Temple with the radioactive cherry in it, go for it, you know?”
Am I alone in hating the “radioactive cherry”? I just don't think it tastes very good. The texture is weird, non? Just me?
Some of you don’t believe her. Some of you still don’t think her kids know what a Filet O’ Fish tastes like. OMG Filet O’ Fish. My McDonald’s favourite. I understand why you might be skeptical. My question though is… given where she lives now, in LA, with anti-vaxxers in affluent communities… you think she’s the only one? Come on now.
My favourite quote so far is how she answers the beauty question:
“I’m not really a ‘beauty person.’ I believe, as cheesy as it sounds, in exercise, laughing, having sex, being yourself,” Paltrow said. “I’m not like, ‘Then I use this masque that I make on my stove.’”
Having sex is part of her beauty routine. It’s a note. So, noted.
