Gwyneth Paltrow On The "Real Happiness" Of Being Home With Her Family

Gwyneth Paltrow is getting herself back together after a dark period when she stopped exercising and was indulging in massive amounts of food and alcohol. The naughtiness was for a movie role, but Gwyneth has not been happy to have to contend with the effects on her body.

“I was so bad with the food and alcohol in Nashville,” Gwyneth, 37, shared with Harper’s Bazaar in its May issue about the two-month shoot for Love Don’t Let Me Down, in which she plays an alcoholic country singer on a downward spiral.

“If you saw me naked [now] compared to what I looked like when I did Iron Man 2, when I was exercising every day – I’ll get it back together, but I’ve never eaten so much fried food and white flour in my life, ever.”

Though Gwyneth has been busy with her two new movie roles, she first took a lot of time off to be with her children – daughter Apple, who will be 6 in May, and son Moses, who turned 4 on Thursday. Though she admits to having missed her acting career, home is clearly where her heart is.

“When you’re having dinner with your kids and your husband and someone says something funny or you’re dying laughing because your 3-year-old made a fart joke, it doesn’t matter what else is going on,” she said. “That’s real happiness.”

She also opened up about the challenges of the paparazzi. The pics “probably made me look like a really grumpy person,” she said. “But when you’re the person they’re taking the picture of, it’s like, ‘You just followed me and made my kid cry and you’re going to make money off it? You want me to look at you and smile?’ ”

However, she did concede that she doesn’t have it nearly as badly as her ex, Brad Pitt, and his family. “I feel bad for them,” she said. “They have it worse than anybody on the planet. I mean, we get hounded too, but not like that.”

    NO ONE cares what you ate today, Short Bus! This woman is so grating and annoying. Everything that comes out of her mouth is about what goes inside it. Enough. Her acting sucks, she’s not very pretty and she thinks she’s filling the whole in the world by acting like the next generation Martha Stewart. Go AWAY This is from the d list “Fishsticks Paltrow brought her son, Moses, out for a coffee break with family friend Kate Capshaw. Moses is holding the car keys, so he can make a quick get away from her nasty paws. He’s cute. It’s amazing that something that cute came out of something so wretched! Ok, she’s not that bad. I mean she’s better than war. Slightly better” That’s right.

    She tries too hard to seem ‘friendly,;’ but comes across as frigid and off putting. I don’t care for her at all, seems fake and contrived.
