Gwyneth has recently opened up about how her life has changed after turning 40, revealing that she had to make adjustments in order to be happy. She told Red: "For me there were just a bunch of changes I had to make to really be true to myself and really live my happiness. You have to be brave and make the choice to do that, to truly accept yourself and love yourself and really forgive yourself for your missteps.

"So it's been a long interesting road to get to the place where I feel really content and that I really know myself and like myself. I wish they could teach girls to do this when they are 16 instead of 40, but that's part of life."
