Hollywood hot mama Gwyneth Paltrow tells September’s issue of Harper’s Bazaar she was “horrified” by her post-baby pudge after giving birth to daughter Apple, but with her new son, Moses, her body is “much less frightening.”
“The first time, you are horrified,” the Oscar winner says. “It’s all lovely when you are pregnant. But when you are not pregnant - and you haven’t been for a couple of months and you are still carrying tons of extra weight and everything’s all hanging and sagging - you think ‘How is this ever going to go back?’ But it does.”
Paltrow, who claims to have gained 40 pounds with each pregnancy, lost a whopping 20 even before leaving the hospital. She said she regains her svelte figure by doing “a lot of working out . . . but not dieting because I am a milk machine!”Now that the 33-year-old star has settled into family life with her husband, Coldplay rocker Chris Martin, and their two kiddies, Paltrow says she’s ready to mix her life up a bit.
“For a long time I thought, ‘I’ve done it. I’ve done what I’ve wanted to do. I’m not interested. I just want to be home with my family,’ ” she recalls. “I had no spark for work, but I feel like going back. And I’m excited about the prospect. I want to do something fun. I want to do a really great funny weird character.”
And she does in Amherst native Augusten Burroughs’ hilarious memoir, “Running With Scissors,” due out in October. Gwynnie stars as the quirky spinster daughter of an off-the-wall shrink.
