Gweneth Paltrow has appeared on the cover of Harpers Bazaar magazine for the May 2013 issue. She reveals her fears for getting older and her secrets of staying beautiful throughout her life.
Wearing a Balenciaga look, Gweneth looks cheerful on the cover. Caught on the lenses by Daniel Jackson and beautified by makeup artist/stylist Julia von Boehm, she reveals all her deepest secrets of life after turning 40, which happened last year…. can you believe it??
“You know, I use organic products, but I get laser. It’s what makes life interesting, finding the balance between cigarettes and tofu. I’ve probably tried everything… I would be scared to go under the knife, but you know, talk to me when I’m fifty. I’ll try anything. Except I won’t do Botox again, because I looked crazy.”
Everything is not as fatal as it may appear. She is rational about getting older and asks herself different questions about the possibility of getting into more films, having another child, moving back to the USA. However, she also had some fears but she has learnt from them in the past.
“I don’t hold on to fear as much as I used to, because I’ve learned a lot about genuinely not caring what strangers think about me. It’s very liberating. It’s very empowering, and I’ve learned a lot of that from Jay – Shawn Carter – Z, because his approach to life is very internal. It’s a very good lesson to learn.”
She was reminiscent about her married life, she and her husband, Chris Martin are becoming really close since their marriage in 2003.
“We are growing into very similar people. It’s cool, it’s good. It’s not always easy though!”
She has been quite active in her work life, appearing in movies such as Thanks for Sharing, The Avengers and the coming movie, Iron Man 3, while she is also rumoured to be in another unnamed movie due in 2014.
