Gwyneth Paltrow Says No Thank You To Botox And London


HBZ May Newsstand CoverBrace yourselves everyone, because it looks like we are going to be seeing a lot of Gwyneth Paltrow in the coming weeks, with her promoting her new cookbook and “Iron Man 3″ coming out soon! The celebrity mom and actress is on the cover of this month’s Harper’s Bazaar magazine, where inside she talks about wanting to leave London for sunny California, how she’ll never try botox again and of course, her thoughts on turning 40. Here are some highlights:

She’s “over” being in London: Having survived her 10th London winter, Paltrow admits that her dreams of relocating the family to their recently acquired residence in Brentwood, California, are becoming ever more urgent. “Just to have my kids be in the sun every day—picking avocados, going for a swim,” she says. “Even for two years or something, and come back when they go to senior school.”

Turning 40 years old: “I’m at quite a pivotal point: Do I want to go back more into films? Do I want another child? Do I want to move back to the States?” Her wide blue-gray eyes flash me a look of amused self-knowledge. “You can call me a lot of things, but you can’t call me complacent!”

Botox & Plastic surgery: “I’ve probably tried everything,” she continues. “I would be scared to go under the knife, but you know, talk to me when I’m 50. I’ll try anything. Except I won’t do Botox again, because I looked crazy. I looked like Joan Rivers!”

Hmm, I wonder what Joan Rivers is going to say about that last quote there (and knowing Joan, she’ll have something to say for sure!). Either way, I can totally understand Gwyneth about all three of these points here. Kudos to her for being honest and telling it like it is – something many celebrities out there are scared to do!
