Yesterday shots of Gwyneth Paltrow's cover for the newly designed Harper's Bazaar leaked, and today the full spread is available, complete with a meaty interview. Terry Richardson lensed the whole editorial, which features Paltrow wearing revealing black dresses against Richardson's signature stark white background. In addition to the racy Anthony Vaccarello she dons on the subscriber cover, she wears Lanvin, Givenchy, Versace, Alexander McQueen, and Blumarine.
People seem to either love or hate Gwyneth Paltrow--the accompanying interview is a good illustration of why. Paltrow is pretty unfiltered. Read the highlights here and make your own assessment. It starts with writer Justine Picardie noting that Paltrow would "fall naturally into yoga stretches during the course of the conversation." We also learn that Goop is being relaunched and expanded, and that she's working on a second cookbook, which will feature "really delicious health food." Click through for highlights and head over to Harper's Bazaar for the full story:
On surgical enhancement: "I'll take my wrinkles. I don't like the Botox thing." But she does do "little things, like lasers."
On her workout regimen: Today, like every other weekday morning, she has spent an hour and a half with her trainer, Tracy Anderson, doing dance aerobics and a precise series of exercises that changes every 10 days.
On why she's doing a 12-week detox regimen: "I'll wake up exhausted; I can feel my adrenal cortex being really high. When I get into bed, my heart will pound, my skin won't be good, I'll feel cranky, and then I'll just know it's time." [Ed.note: We don't think you can actually feel your adrenal cortex, but maybe Gwyneth can?]
On her father's unhealthy lifestyle: "All I've learned about nutrition and health came from his cancer. I'll probably have a long and healthy life because he didn't."
On bathing with her kids: "We all get into the tub together."
On saving her dresses for her daughter: "I was like, I'll bet you anything I'll have a daughter, and she'll be a really cool butch lesbian and be so above clothes, and I got a very clothes-obsessed child. So if she's a lesbian, she's a lipstick lesbian. She doesn't like anything avant-garde at all. She likes anything that's pretty, pretty, pretty or has a bow or a ruffle or is pink."
On her role in her marriage: "I have little kids in school. I want to maintain my marriage and my family, so I have to be here when he comes home...Gloria Steinem may string me up by my toes, but all I can do is my best, and I can do only what works for me and my family."
On Beyoncé's pregnant performance at Glastonbury: "She was absolutely incredible, especially as she was barfing in between."
On being cheated on by a former boyfriend: "I had a boyfriend who used to cheat on me all the time. I was quite naive. I knew on a cellular level, but I bought his story."
On being more open-minded about infidelity: "The older I get, the more open-minded I get, the less judgmental I get. Life is long. I have friends who I love and admire who have had an affair. When I was younger, I would have said he's a terrible person or she's a terrible person. But who made these laws?"
