Gwyneth Paltrow has revealed a very raunchy reason behind her youthful figure and healthy glow.
The 43-year-old credits getting down and dirty as the secret behind her incredible appearance. Speaking to People magazine about her new skincare line, the star said she no longer felt self-conscious about her appearance. No surprise there then – she was spotted strutting her stuff in a skimpy bikini. "I think it's really important to be happy, and I think women get happy by being authentic," she said.
"But I also believe in exercise, eating well, drinking lots of water, sex, sleeping and being around people who make you feel good. And I think that glow that you get in life comes from a combination of all those things."
We are guessing the sex she's referring to is with current beau Brad Falchuk – a TV producer for the likes of American Horror Story and Scream Queens. The pair have been dating since Gwyn "consciously uncoupled" from Coldplay singer Chris Martin.
The Iron Man actress added that ageing doesn't faze her one bit. "I earned these gray hairs," she declared.
"I really am not afraid of getting older. I think the 40s are such a gift, and I feel more beautiful now than I did 10 years ago or 20 years ago."
Gwyneth has been involved with a series of high-profile Hollywood figures over her career, including an engagement to Brad Pitt when she first stepped into the spotlight.
"I would never want to go back. I was a mess in my 20s. I'm so thankful to be where I am," she added. It seems the actress will instill the same level of confidence into her daughter Apple – who looks exactly like her.
"With [Apple], what I'm most proud of is she already has a strong sense of self, and to me that's going to make her feel beautiful," she said.
