So in the latest edition of Redbook, Gwyneth Paltrow thought it’d be a cool idea if she did a joint interview with her personal trainer, Tracy Anderson, because apparently Gwyneth Paltrow telling you how great she is just isn’t good enough anymore. Nope, now she needs her personal fitness trainer to tell you, too. Here’s Gwynnie doing her bit with Tracy Anderson.
Gwyneth Paltrow on her body issues:
“With my daughter it had been easier, but this time, no matter what I did, I felt stuck. I couldn’t shift the weight. But I met Tracy and she was this force from the second I met her. She pulled my pants off. I’ll never forget it. She was like, ‘Oh, my God, wow, I just am so surprised, because you look so good in clothes. I wasn’t expecting this.'”
On her 40th birthday:
“The morning of my 40th birthday, my children and husband woke me up with hugs and gifts, and I proceeded to have the best week of my life. I feel really happy being 40, now that I’m on the other side of it. There was definitely some uncomfortable anticipation. But I’m amazed at what I’ve been able to accomplish, that I’ve maintained my important relationships and have such incredible women friends, that I have two funny, beautiful children who can give me a real life. In a way, I feel like no one should make big life decisions until 40. It’s when it all starts to settle and become clear.”
So, OK. All in all, tolerable. But wait. Wait. Here’s Tracy Anderson talking about Gwyneth talking about Gwyneth:
“Gwyneth had extra weight she couldn’t drop from her pregnancy with Moses, and she needed to get in shape for her first action film, Iron Man.”
And that’s it. I guess it was pretty tolerable after all, huh? But that part about Gwyneth looking like crap without her pants on, I’m sorry, but I just don’t buy that. Not for a hot second, guys.
