Gwyneth Paltrow is showing us that she was just like us in the ’90s. The actress reflected on some of her, let’s say bad behavior, that she partook in while growing up in the 1990s. Appearing on The Late Late Show with James Corden, the 50-year-old admitted that there was a time when she wasn’t as healthy as she is now.
The model was on the show to promote her four-part Audible Series, The Goop Pursuit, alongside Hilary Swank who discussed her show Alaska Daily. “You both came up in the nineties, which is having quite the renaissance at the moment — the fashion, the music, what was it like for both of you being so famous at a time when there was no social media, no nothing … what do you remember about that time?” Corden asked the actresses.
Party Hard, Gwyneth Paltrow
“It was great — I mean talk about doing cocaine and not getting caught!” Paltrow said while laughing. “Like, you could just be at a bar and be, like, having fun, dancing on a table, you could — no camera phones — especially in New York, interestingly enough, there were no paparazzi. You could stumble out of a bar and go home with some rando and no one would know.”
Prior to reflecting on them having the time of their life during the 1990s, the two women bonded over their careers. “You won your Academy Award in 1999?” Swank, 48, asked Paltrow, to which she replied, “I think so.”
Swank went on to say that she followed her right after in 2000 which then prompted them to have a high five as the audience cheered them.”You were famous in the nineties and I wasn’t,” Swank told Palthrow. Now that she’s in her 50s, Paltrow said that she feels better in her own skin than she did before.
- Gwyneth Paltrow Turns 50
Before her 50th birthday, the Goop founder recalled celebrating with her team by coming up with an out-of-the-box idea to celebrate. She decided to post nude while being covered in gold paint. “I feel so happy being 50,” she stated at that time. “I really flipped out when I turned 40, because I thought, ‘My life is over. I’m not going to be attractive anymore, and society isn’t going to want me.’ I really panicked. Turning 50 was the polar opposite. I was like, ‘I’ve never felt better in my own skin, and I don’t care if people think I’m attractive or not. I love myself.’ It’s a great feeling.”
Safe to say that both of these ladies are aging just fine and look as happy as ever.
