Gwyneth Paltrow On Her Body: 'I Had To Work Hard To Get It Like This'

Having sung the praises of fried chicken, eaten her way through Spain with Mario Batali, and posted numerous recipes on her lifestyle site Goop.com it’s clear that Gwyneth Paltrow is a bona fide foodie. “I can eat what I want, as long as I exercise,” she tells British Vogue, “which is just as well, because if I put the word ‘diet’ into my brain, I immediately gain a stone [about 14 lbs].” In fact, the Oscar-winning actress is so wrapped up in culinary delights, she even has a cookbook in the works. “I have this whole other passion, which is home-making,” explains the magazine’s May cover model. “As silly as that sounds–it’s not 1955, after all–it’s really important to me, all that stuff, sitting round a table as a family.” So how does Paltrow stay so svelte in the face of the calories that come with recipe-testing? “I had to work hard to get like this,” says the 37-year-old mother-of-two, who lost 20 lbs. after the birth of Moses, her second child with husband Chris Martin of Coldplay, by working out intensively with celebrity trainer Tracy Anderson. “I’m not skinny–I look like I eat and all…I was getting boxy from all that yoga, so Tracy gave me a waist,” she says of her sessions with Anderson, with whom she’s opening a second fitness studio in London–a satellite of their original joint venture in New York City–later this year. And it seems that it was all worth the sweat: “Now [that] I’m here, it’s so great because I don’t have to think about [my figure]. I can just enjoy life. What a relief is that…”  To read the full feature, pick up a copy of the May issue of British Vogue. — Marissa Patlingrao Cooley
