7 Things We Learned About Gwyneth Paltrow
From Howard Stern to the Clubhouse, the actress gave some of her most revealing interviews this week.
Gwyneth Paltrow made the rounds in New York City this week, giving high-profile interviews to not just Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live Thursday night, but also Howard Stern.
Both sit-downs were some of the most revealing of her career: the hosts asked plenty of potentially uncomfortable questions, which the Oscar-winning actress handled with her typical poise and grace.
Still, the Mortdecai star did make some surprising revelations on everything from "consciously uncoupling" from ex Chris Martin, who's reportedly dating Jennifer Lawrence, to her famous BFFs Jay Z and Beyoncé.
What did we learn about the Goop guru this week? The 7 biggest revelations from her press tour.
She's Experimented With Drugs
During her hilarious round of Plead the Fifth with Andy, Paltrow admitted that she's experimented with hard stuff.
Blue Ivy Is a Powerhouse
Gwyneth spilled the tea on her pals Beyonce and Jay Z—and also opened up about their daughter, Blue Ivy. Is she as cool as her mom and dad? "She is a powerhouse," Gwyneth told Andy. "She is the boss of everything. And she can do all the choreography to Sia's "Chandelier" video even though she's just three years old. She's super smart."
She Approves of Chris Dating J.Law. Well, Theoretically...
While sitting with Howard Stern, the shock jock asked how Gwyneth felt about her ex dating the Hunger Games starlet, though Stern's questions were couched in a theoretical way. "Just assuming...that's going to be an issue," he asked. Nevertheless, Gwyneth admitted she's OK with it: "I respect him as the father of my children and it's his life and it's his decision. And I do think he loves [our] kids so much and I don't think he'd be with someone who wasn't great. And if I'm wrong, I'll come back here and tell you."
Brad Pitt Sort of Intimidated Her
While dating the actor in the '90s, Gwyneth said she had second thoughts about marrying her fiancé at the time. "I mean, I was 22 when we met and it's taken me until 40 to get my head out of my ass," she told Stern. "You can't make a decision when you're 22-years-old." Gwyneth also said that the break-up was hard on her father, Bruce. "[He] was so devastated when we broke up. My father loved him like a son."
Does Gwyneth Fly Coach and Eat Canned Cheese?
Gwyneth's become notorious for her approach to clean living—but she's got her share of low-brow indulgences. Watch her admit her guilty pleasures below.
What Does Conscious Uncoupling Mean, Anyway?
When Gwyneth announced her split from Martin in 2014, the couple said they weren't divorcing—they were "consciously uncoupling." So what does the term mean anyway? She explained to Stern: "The idea is you try to do it with minimal acrimony and you say, 'Look, we have kids, we’re always going to be a family and let’s try to find all the positives in our relationship, all the things that brought us together, the friendship.'" She also admitted that the strategy worked: "We actually have a really strong friendship and we laugh and we have fun."
She's Had Embarrassing Wardrobe Malfunctions
Every Hollywood star has had them—including Gwyneth. When one Clubhouse caller asked her to share the scariest wardrobe malfunction, Gwyneth revealed she had one while presenting an award shortly after giving birth. "My breast milk kind of decided it was time to come, you know...And I was at the Oscars, and so I hadn't pumped breast milk in a long time. Luckily, the show was over and I had already presented, but, yeah, it wasn't good."
