Gwyneth Paltrow opens up on botox and ageing gracefully

Fitness fanatic and health food fan Gwyneth Paltrow is known for her love of all things organic, but the actress recently revealed in an interview that she is open to cosmetic treatments — with one exception.

"I'll try anything. Except I won't do Botox again," the actress told Harpers Bazaar. "I looked crazy. I looked like Joan Rivers!"


The blonde beauty, who is known for her flawless style and age-defying body, credits her trainer Tracy Anderson for keeping her in shape but also admits that she often enhances her natural beauty with regular treatments and isn't afraid of trying innovative procedures.

More recently it was revealed that Gwyneth underwent a laser treatment entitled 'Of Thermage' in Los Angeles before the launch of her second healthy recipe cookbook It's All Good. "It feels like someone's smacking your face with a rubber band that has an electric shock in it," the Shakespeare In Love star explained of the laser treatment that.

However, despite the uncomfortable procedure, Gwyneth, 40, said she "would do it again, because I feel like it took five years off my face."

Having passed the milestone of her 40th birthday last autumn, the mum-of-two also underwent a challenging health scare that lead her to create the newly-released gluten-free cookbook and allowed the actress to re-asses important aspects of her life.

In the interview, Gwyneth admitted that it was all about finding the "balance between cigarettes and tofu". She added, "I use organic products, but I get lasers. It's what makes life interesting."

Although Gwyneth has so far denied having any invasive treatment, she revealed that she has not ruled out defying time with plastic surgery. "I've probably tried everything," she said. "I would be scared to go under the knife, but you know, talk to me when I'm 50."
