Gwyneth talks Beyonce

One of our favourite things about Gwyneth Paltrow is the fact that she’s best friends with Beyonce.

It happens that the two superstars are close enough for Paltrow to have known about the singer’s pregnancy as early as June, when Beyonce performed in hot pants and a gold sequinned blazer on the Glastonbury stage.

If you didn’t think Beyonce’s headline performance could have been any more impressive, get this: ‘She was absolutely incredible, especially as she was barfing in between,’ Paltrow said in the new issue of US Harper’s Bazaar.


Other points of interest in the cover story include that Gwyneth is anti-Botox (‘I’ll take my wrinkles,’ she says. ‘I don’t like the Botox thing.’), was cheated on by an old boyfriend, and ‘falls naturally into yoga stretches during the course of conversation’. She also takes baths with her kids, and says—in one of the profile’s odder moments—that she’s archiving her clothes for seven-year old daughter Apple:

‘I've been saving my clothes for her since before she was born. I was like, I'll bet you anything I'll have a daughter, and she'll be a really cool butch lesbian and be so above clothes, and I got a very clothes-obsessed child. So if she's a lesbian, she's a lipstick lesbian. She doesn't like anything avant-garde at all. She likes anything that's pretty, pretty, pretty or has a bow or a ruffle or is pink.’

With clothes like this coming her way, Apple sounds like one lucky girl...
