Hollywood star Gwyneth Paltrow comes clean on Botox use

Botox treatmentNotoriously private Hollywood A-Lister, Gwyneth Paltrow, has come clean about her use of Botox anti-wrinkle injections, although like Nicole Kidman before her insists it was a mistake and that she “won’t try it again”.

Talking to Harper’s Bazaar to promote new film Iron Man 3, the actress referred to her Botox use dismissively and in passing, when asked what her views on plastic surgery are:

“I would be scared to go under the knife, but talk to me when I’m 50. I’ll try anything. Except I won’t do Botox again because I looked crazy, I looked like Joan Rivers!”

Whilst seemingly denying any invasive work she does admit she will try anything, which insinuates she may possibly already do so. She continued by admitting to using, and liking, laser treatments to reverse the signs of ageing on her face.

Joan River responded to the negative comparison drawn to her by telling People magazine that it’s a disservice to other women to deny surgery or treatments – that doing so implies you are better than they are for being more naturally beautiful.

Paltrow also came under fire recently for purportedly denying her children carbohydrates and putting looking good above health. New book ‘It’s All Good: Delicious, Easy Recipes That Will Make You Look Good and Feel Great’ is a book designed to promote healthy living through the recipes that she herself makes for her own family. In it though she admits:

“Sometimes when my family is not eating bread, pasta or processed grains…we’re left with that specific hunger that comes from avoiding carbs.”

Though she herself is well-known for sticking to a strict diet in order to maintain her skinny frame the admission drew some shock from the reporting media, although some insist the words were taken out of context.

Most, if not all, nutritionists will agree that children should stick to a healthy, balanced diet without cutting out any of the food groups.
