Gwyneth is looking fantastic lately, and she continues to look fantastic on the cover of Elle‘s September issue, which the Fashion Spot dug up. We are loving the stripped-down makeup, messy hair, and monochrome black outfit. The styling, courtesy of Joe Zee, has a casual vibe. Boring? Maybe, but we like Gwynnie best when she’s being down-to-earth.
Here are some of the highlights from her interview with Mickey Rapkin:
-On Beyoncé (who came to watch Gwyneth’s rehearsal at the ungodly hour of 10am) giving her advice to improve her stage presence: “She’s like, ‘The singing is great. But you’re not having any fun. Remember when we’re at Jay’s concert and Panjabi MC comes on and you do your crazy Indian dance? Do that.’”
-On what she did to prepare before the appearance with Cee Lo on the Grammys: Drank a pint of Guinness and took a beta-blocker (which is a drug commonly used for cardiac problems, but also has known stress-reduction properties)
-On people who criticize GOOP: “Unsubscribe!”
-Chef Anthony Bourdain to Mario Batali about Gwyneth’s refusal to eat pork: “Why would you bring along the one bitch in the world who can’t eat ham?”
-On making a solo album: “Beyoncé and Jay–they think that I should just go do it my myself. That I should go fuck around in a studio and see what happens.”
-On her marriage to Chris Martin: “We go through periods that aren’t all rosy. If, God forbid, we were ever not to be together, I respect him so much as the father of my children.”
Unfortunately we don’t have more of the interview, but it should be hitting the internet in a few hours and newsstands within weeks. UPDATE: It’s online. Go to Elle.com for a sneak peek at the article.
