Gwyneth Paltrow’s low-carb, gluten-free diet hasn’t just affected her children, Apple and Moses, it has impacted her nearly 10-year marriage to Coldplay frontman Chris Martin. (She is so annoying)
Gwyneth says she “had a lot of unexpressed anger. I made everyone else’s feelings more important than my own. I’d suck it up and then be alone in my car yelling at traffic or fighting with hangers in my closet when they got stuck together.”
Then she realized how much her diet affected her mental state. “I had to sing at awards shows, which was fun but stressful. I’d have a Guinness and a beta-blocker every time. I also was constantly getting on airplanes, trying to knock myself out with sleeping pills and wine, waking up, trying to sweat it out with exercise and a steam, and then working really hard all day. Eventually, I had a panic attack,” she recalls. “My body was like, ‘What is happening?'”
These days, Gwyneth says enjoys martinis with my girlfriends. “I feel a sisterhood emerging around me,” says Paltrow, whose close friends include Beyonce. “I’m less threatening now that I’m 40 and not 26-with-an-Oscar.” (THREATENING! REALLY!)
