Gwyneth Paltrow is showing some skin on the cover of April's Women's Health issue! The 44-year-old actress and Goop guru bares her rock hard abs in a red one-shoulder bikini, but admits that even she isn't always in the mood to work out.
“I like feeling good, and I know I feel my best when I exercise. But it depends on the day — I definitely don’t always feel like doing it,” Paltrow, who works out almost every day, told Women’s Health. “I’ve made it a habit, just like brushing your teeth. That’s how you have to look at it.”
“I’ve been a Tracy Anderson fanatic for over a decade, I’m an investor in her company, so yeah, I go every morning,” she said. “I drop the kids at school, work out, go to work.”
Along with leading a pretty active lifestyle, Paltrow also eats a clean, strict diet — but lets herself indulge when she wants to.
“I have a pretty healthy diet, so when I’m eating processed foods and not watching my alcohol intake, I feel it. But at the same time, you want deliciousness, you want a fun — pleasure!” she said. “You’re going to have a baguette-and-cheese-and-red-wine frenzy sometimes, but you want it to be a choice you’re awake to: ‘I know this might not make me feel great, but today I’m choosing it anyway.’”
"When you're at the forefront of something that's new, people can get really reactive: 'This is crazy! Why are you doing this?'" she explained. "Then, five years later, everyone's fine with it."
"It's a blessing to be liberated from the chains of other people's perceptions of you," she continued. "It's part of wellness, working at that. I've gotten to a point where I like myself. I do my best as a person. I also have nothing to hide."
Her goal with Goop is for all other women to feel as good as she does.
"I think women in modern society don't feel very well," she noted. "The number one thing women say is, 'I'm exhausted and I don't know why!' I want to get to the bottom of why that is. The supplements were born out of that impulse: I want to feel well, I want my friends to feel well, I want my readers to feel well."
