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'
