The very glamboyant Gwyneth Paltrow covers Self Magazine’s April 2013 issue wearing Just Cavalli dress as photographed by Matt Jones and inside Gwyneth shares how she detoxed her life, the importance of her female friendships and strengthening her emotional health.
Gwyneth — who shares some of her favorite recipes in the magazine — says that her new found approach to healthy eating changed not only her body, but also her marriage and emotional health:
- On her female friendships and how she de-stresses: “I watch Homeland or New Girl. I also like to have martinis with my girlfriends. I feel a sisterhood emerging around me. I’m less threatening now that I’m 40 and not 26-with-an-Oscar. There’s a sense of love and support.”
- On changing her lifestyle: “A couple of years ago, I got really run down. I had to sing at award shows, which was fun but stressful. I’d have a Guinness and a beta-blocker every time . . . Eventually, I had a panic attack. My body was like, ‘What is happening?’ [Before the diet, I] had a lot of unexpressed anger. I made everyone else’s feelings more important than my own. I’d suck it up and then be alone in my car yelling at traffic or fighting with hangers in my closet when they got stuck together.
- Going Gluten & Sugar Free: “I cut out basically everything: dairy, sugar, gluten, anything processed. I was like, “What the f— am I going to eat now?” That’s why I made the book [It’s All Good – arriving in bookstores in Oz mid-April]: to stop eating brown rice out of the fridge because I didn’t know what else to eat—it was demoralizing. You feel lighter and your emotions get smoother.”
- On dealing with problems: “You’re not learning anything unless you’re having the difficult conversations. Dealing with things directly changed my relationships. Sometimes when you get clear about who you are, others get less comfortable because they liked who you were. It’s changed my marriage, too, but he [Chris Martin‘s] up for the challenge.”
