Gwyneth Paltrow is the February cover girl for Marie Claire magazine. The publication is now offering a sneak peak of her interview on line in which the actress talks about her upcoming movie and her high profile “uncoupling” from singer Chris Martin.
At 42 the Oscar winning actress proves that she’s still got it having made the cover story on not one but two publications next month. The other is Harper’s Bazar UK. Paltrow only just missed the cut for our top ten hottest Jewish women celebrities for 2014.
In “Mortdecai, ” which is due out later this month, Paltrow once again puts on a fake British accent playing Lady Mortdecai opposite Johnny Depp’s Charles Mortdecai. The film sees Depp searching for a stolen painting that has something to do with some missing Nazi gold from World War II. The previews make it seem like the movie will be a screwball comedy.
In the interview Paltrow did not seem to mind admitting to not only smoking, but that she and Depp very cheaply bummed cigarettes from their driver between takes rather than buy their own.
The Oscar winner commented on her “conscious uncoupling” (i.e. divorce) from longtime husband Chris Martin saying, “There was nothing dramatic or anything. I had built my life on trying to be all things to all people, and I just couldn’t do it anymore, and I really had the sense that I wasn’t allowed to have needs, and I had to prove my specialness or self-worth by doing all this stuff and taking care of everybody else, and I just sort of hit a wall.”
She also said that she and Martin are still very close and work very “fucking hard” at maintaining a cordial relationship.
You only need to wait until January 13th to read the full interview in Marie Claire’s February issue.
Mortdecai also stars Olivia Munn, Jeff Goldblum, Paul Bettany and Ewan McGregor.
