Gwyneth Paltrow has been in a sharing mood lately. She's talked about her recent change in diet due to anemia and how it affected her marriage. She's talked about opening a blow-dry bar with her trainer and her new book, "It's All Good: Delicious, Easy Recipes that Will Make You Look Good and Feel Great."

Now she's tackling a topic that most actresses are afraid to admit to: Botox. Paltrow has been looking better than ever these days, but she said it's not due to Botox. At least, not anymore. "I've probably tried everything," she told Harper's Bazaar. "I would be scared to go under the knife, but you know, talk to me when I'm 50. I'll try anything. Except I won't do Botox again, because I looked crazy. I looked like Joan Rivers."

At the moment, she's taking on a less hard-core skin routine. "I really used to be bad with products, but now I exfoliate every night and use a lot of organic oils on my face," she said. (She's a Sonya Dakar fan.) "And I have a great dermatologist in LA who gave me this amazing laser the last time I was there. It's called Thermage. It's not invasive. I went out to dinner right afterward and I didn't look crazy, but it's quite painful. It feels like someone's smacking your face with a rubber band that has an electric shock in it. But I would do it again, because I feel like it took five years off my face."

Tell us on Facebook: Do you find Paltrow's candor about her skin refreshing? Are you a fan or think you've been seeing too much of her lately?

From what I've been told, if you go by her cookbook, it will cost you around $300 a day for food. Soooo...no thanks :)

I think more celebrities should comment about their diet and beauty routine, so we don't idolize over them and know they are human like anyone else. I think she is doing great. And, appreciate that she is not making a clothes line and perfume like everyone who doesn't have strong talent, just happens to be famous. So she has knowledge with this book, it has been in her family growing up to eat a certain way, etc.

Why do women like this bake under the sun, and then try to get rid of wrinkles or leathery skin with plastic surgery,botox, only to resume laying under the sun. Roma Downey does this, and she has ruined here looks with too much cosmetic surgeries. Stop backing in the sun if you don't want your skin to prematurely age!!!

Way too preachy. Not that good-looking. Follows the fads way to often. Definitely not a role-model. I feel for her kids.

Paltrow is a little too preachy and self-righteous for me.

Gwyneth,

 

1. Thermage isn't laser; it's radiofrequency waves.

2. Maybe you shouldn't take shots at Joan Rivers. At least she looks intelligent.

3. Maybe Botox all around your mouth wouldn't be a bad idea............

4. Some of us don't want to hear about your every f*rt and thought.

      

      Just sayin'

    Fall shopping, decoded: How to get the most from every budget

    Smart fall shopping can’t be boiled down to some set-in-stone lineup of items. It’s much more about how you play with what you’ve got rather than just racking up a bunch of new stuff; sometimes your bank account’s balance simply won’t allow for a full-on wardrobe refresh. That’s when it’s important to know what’s worth it—and what isn’t.

    Cool collective: Fall’s best products

    Beauty editors are routinely asked to name three essentials they couldn’t live without on a desert island. So here’s our list: water, matches, protein bars. As much as we depend on beauty products, they’re not exactly essential to survival. These luxurious fragrances, nail polishes, and tools are no exception. They’re the anti-basics—hardly your medicine-cabinet staples. They won’t shrink pores or obliterate frizz, but they will make you weak with desire. And that’s a refreshing change of pace. Beyond just looking and feeling great, each of these cool new things appeals to our sense of style. How’s that for an SOS?

    12 iconic beauties who make the case for the cat eye

    Like red lipstick, cat eyes owe their timeless appeal to their spectacular, style-defining range that can, depending on application, telegraph Old Hollywood glamour, graphic minimalism, or counter-culture punk—what else do Siouxsie Sioux and Brigitte Bardot have in common? It’s impossible to think of Marilyn Monroe without those heavy-lidded bedroom eyes or Amy Winehouse sans her subversive, exaggerated swipe. A mere sweep of eye pencil transformed Anna Karina from a fresh-faced teenager into a French New Wave style icon, and Sophia Loren’s wide-eyed gaze has been forever etched into our collective memory with a frame of perfectly delineated black powder liner. Today, Alexa Chung gives the look a modern ease with a signature liquid swoosh that feels right whether she’s heading to brunch, the airport, or the red carpet. Here’s a look at the best feline eyes of all time. We feel certain that Choupette would approve.

    Plus-size layering tips that work for everyone

    It's far too often that "The Best Styling Tricks Evaaarrrr"-type stories leave you at a loss. Sure, if you had the legs of a supermodel and a closet full of designer goods, you, too, could probably pull off wearing a shoe on your head and your drop-crotch pants backward. But, for real life, where looking not-crazy is as important as looking unique, sartorial advice needs to be more tailored to accessibility, practicality, and what's actually flattering. So, yes, this story is titled "Plus-Size Layering Tips," but we're confident these pointers can benefit everyone's dressing game.
