Gwyneth Paltrow Talks Beyonce & Jay-Z In Elle Magazine
Gwyneth Paltrow graces the cover of Elle magazine’s September issue. In an all black number this 38 yr. old actress dishes on her marriage to Chris Martin, her friendship with Beyonce and Jay-Z, and the possibility of creating a solo album. We all saw her tear the house down on the Grammys with Cee-Lo Green. A solo album would really be interesting. Check out photos and interview highlights below.
On keeping her marriage private: “He makes music for his fans, and he doesn’t want people to conjure a lame famous couple when they’re getting into his music. I get it.”
On the advice Beyoncé gave her before her performance: “Beyoncé’s like, ‘Okay. The singing is great. But you’re not having any fun.’ She’s like, ‘Remember when we’re at Jay’s concert and Panjabi MC comes on and you do your crazy Indian dance? Do that. Be you!’”
On her decision to take on other roles like Glee to be able to focus more on family: “I can do short jobs. If I was still starring in three movies every year, there’s no way that I’d be the person my kids want when they fall down.”
On creating a solo album: “Beyoncé and Jay — they think that I should just go do it by myself. That I should go … in a studio and see what happens. And if it’s good, do it. And if it’s not, don’t. So that’s probably what I’ll do.
On going public with her personal care regimens: “It’s so much easier to sit home and not exercise and criticize other people. What I love is inspiring people. People come up to me and say, ‘I want to have two kids and wear a bathing suit and not feel terrible about myself. I see how hard you work and it makes me feel like I can do that too.’”
Now that’s a bad chick! This issue goes on stands August. 16th!
