Gwyneth recently shared that her daughter Apple, 4, loves to play dress-up!

“She makes [Moses] cross-dress,” Gwyneth, 35, told People magazine at Wednesday’s launch of Sensuous. “But she doesn’t put makeup on him!”

“My daughter plays with anything that’s girly. … She loves makeup,” said Gwyneth. “She puts on the eye shadow and my high heels. … She likes to take my tank tops and make them a dress. And then she asks me to tie a rubber band on the back so they stay up.”

Apple also loves to get into mom’s perfumes. “I don’t like her to spray perfume on herself because she’s so little,” said Gwyneth, “but she likes to spray it on me.”

Gwyneth also shared that she makes a habit of taking time to unwind.

“Oftentimes when I put my kids to bed I’ll take a bubble bath and have a glass of wine,” she said, adding that she also likes to play chef.

“I don’t make complicated Japanese food or anything like that,” said Gwyneth, who recently admitted to having lots of lovely vices. “But I cook all the time, so I’m always trying new stuff.”

Someone who feels very passionately about baby names is Chris Martin!

Coldplay’s Chris Martin doesn’t see anything wrong with Nicole Kidman naming her daughter Sunday or Jessica Alba calling her girl Honor.

Chris, 31, — who named his son Moses and daughter Apple — tells the new issue of Blender: “People make a big fuss over names. Names of babies, names of albums, names of bands.

“There’s nothing weird about calling your baby Chewbacca if that’s what you want to call your baby,” he goes on. “It’s no stranger than Sarah.”

He said, “a name is just a noise, and if you like it, then f–k what everyone else says.”

Chris and wife Gwyneth Paltrow may need to think of more names soon.

Asked about getting pregnant again, Gwyneth, 35, told July’s Harper’s Bazaar, “I may force myself to do it one more time because the result is so worth it.

“My mother loved each [pregnancy] to bits; she felt alive and beautiful. I wanted to throw up all the time.”

She said she and Chris (who recently admitted he had a tough time with girls before he met Gwyneth) are even open to adopting.

“I do feel we’re so fortunate, and we kind of owe it to humanity,” Gwyneth told the magazine. “We have a lot of love to give and a lot of resources.”


Gwyneth Works Out Three Hours A Day?

Chef Mario Batali shared how much he thinks Gwyneth works out to maintain her fabulous figure.

“I think she works out three hours a day – which is one of the keys to success,” chef Mario Batali told Us magazine at the opening of the Uncle Ben’s Kids Café in Carson, California, on Wednesday

“If we all did that, we’d all look like Gwyneth Paltrow,” he said. “Or at least closer.”

He added that the Iron Man actress, 35, “loves to eat … and, you know, she never puts on a pound!”

Gwyneth and Mario Batali are teaming up for their upcoming PBS documentary Spain …On the Road Again, airing this fall.

“We had an amazing time — we saw everything!” he said.

“Predominately,” he added, the show’s “about understanding Spain from the perspective of a casual traveler. It’s very much like a road trip, we just drove into a place, figured out what was going on and tried to get a hold of it.”

Oh…Gwyneth is probably cursing Mario right now! No one is supposed to ADMIT to working out three hours a day….even if that is the truth! Just kidding! He only said that he “thought” she must work out that much.


Gwyneth Paltrow Opens Up About Her Vices

Gwyneth Paltrow’s showing off a bold new look on the latest cover of V Magazine – photographed by Mario Sorrenti – and in it, the Iron Man actress spills new details about her home life, her post-baby weight loss, and her indulgence in certain chocolate-chip “vices.”

But how did she make the jump from motherhood back to movies? “I have an amazing nanny,” she told the magazine, on newsstands May 15th. “I didn’t have one till Apple was 14 months old, but then, because we were going on tour [with husband Chris Martin’s band Coldplay], we found someone fantastic. She’s been with us ever since.”

Without her, “I was really tired. … [but] obsessed – madly, deeply in love – with my daughter. I wanted to be with her all day long. I was under a crazy spell. I still am, but I’ve had to adjust to reality more.”

Another rough part of parenthood? Losing the baby weight!

“I put on 40 pounds with Moses. And I found it really hard to lose the last 20 pounds,” Gwyneth, 35, admits. “I didn’t mind having the big boobs. But it was the stomach roll, the back fat, and the post-pregnant butt. And it was so hard to get rid of.”

She did it with by eating “organic, seasonal food that isn’t processed.”

“I haven’t eaten meat for about fifteen years. I eat fish, a little bit of dairy – not much milk – but I love cheese,” she added. “We’ll make chocolate chip cookies and eat them, but sugar makes me feel pretty bad. I have coffee and wine. I’ve got lots of lovely vices!”
