Harper's Bazaar has the latest scoop on GOOP goddess Gwyneth Paltrow -- but the magazine seems more intrigued by her yoga- and cleanse-toned body than her marriage to Coldplay frontman Chris Martin.






A little excerpt: "As she falls naturally into yoga stretches during the course of the conversation, supple as a cat, you realize that this is a woman for whom working out has become essential," the article begins. "At 39, she looks stronger than she did in her 20s, lean and toned, with the streamlined contours of an athlete." Er, alright.

The mag goes on to explain that, "Today, like every other weekday morning, she has spent an hour and a half with her trainer, Tracy Anderson, doing dance aerobics and a precise series of exercises that changes every 10 days. The aim, she says, is "that you're muscular, but you don't get used to anything."

Harper's also grills the mother of two about the latest of her famous 12-week detox cleanses. "I have a lot of inflammation in my system, so I'm not having anything I'm allergic to -- no gluten, no dairy, no sugar," Gwyneth Paltrow says.



But here's the good part: Paltrow, who rarely talks about her famous hubby and is almost never seen with him, finally gives us a little bit of an inside peek at their relationship. "He's very communicative," she says, "which is rare for a British man." She continues, "I want to maintain my marriage and my family, so I have to be here when he comes home. ... you have to compromise. ... you have to be a wife, and that is part of the equation."

Her life may seem nauseatingly perfect, but Paltrow says one of her ex-boyfriends cheated on her "all the time." Hard to believe, huh? In any case, do you think Gwyneth Paltrow has the ideal female body?

    Not even close, but not because she is "too thin".
    Gwyneth has a barrel shape body.
    Which means even if she gained weight she won't have "curves".

    Even comparing to thin runway models, Gwyneth has no inward curve from her torso to waist.

    body gained weight curves comparing runway models curve torso waist
    This model is not that much different in weight from Gwyneth, but she still has the feminine curve on her waist.

    Gwyneth's body just goes straight downward from top to bottom.
    I won't call that "Ideal body"....

    There is no such thing as the "ideal body" for women or men. There's just what we are individually attracted to.

    For example, I think THIS is the ideal female body:
    ideal body women individually attracted ideal female body

    So is this:
    ideal body women individually attracted ideal female body

    As for me, this is the look I'm going for:
    ideal body women individually attracted ideal female body

    I'm working on it!

    I love Gwyneth Paltrow, love her acting and I am quite impressed with her singing, but I have always felt that she was just a little too thin. However, she is very pretty.

    That depends who who is looking at her.

    There is no universal ideal. Perhaps, at best, a range based on health.

    Oh, yeah. But everyone has a different viewpoint of what "ideal" is. Same for what "normal" is. It's pretty subjective. :D

    She doesn't actually look anorexic. She looks "unfamiliar" because woman are associated with soft skin, and even if they're thin, their tummy usually looks soft. Hers is hard and muscled. Her whole body is toned and muscled. She's not skin and bone though.

    She's a lovely lady with a nice body. But what is to say that a woman twice her size and with a healthy diet and even healthier attitude is not perfect? Genes produce many varieties of beautiful bodies. There is no doubt that exercise and a healthy diet play a part, so good for her and all who also maintain/promote a healthy lifestyle.

    There is no one ideal body. People have various opinions on this, it's impossible to narrow all of the things that millions of different people like into one, single, body type.

    Not to me, nor not to many. There is no one "ideal" female body-people have preferences. Also, just because a woman doesn't fit your preferences does it mean she's any less of woman either.

    Yes, because she's exterting herself in a pose. As a model, I know how to bend into poses, and I am not even that flexible-this model is a gymnast, so she can do extreme things. =]

    My skin stretches that way over my ribs when I bend into that sort of pose too. I'm not starved...

    I gave you a rave for your first 3 sentences.The woman you posted for your ideal body look...starved. :/
  • ~Doll P... ☆Snapef... 2012/02/11 03:43:33

    Then you might as well not give me a rave at all. She's not starved by any means, she's a fetish/Pinup model who is posing into an odd contortion.

    She's thin, yes, but I happen to find slender, with curves in the right places attractive. Look at how muscled her legs are...Not starved in the least.

    Beauty is always in the eye of the beholder. As a result I do not think there could ever be just one ideal body, whether it's male or female, for everyone.



    Gwyneth is beautiful, but I think that Salma Hayek and Halle Berry's bodies are better.

    "Ideal" is subjective. She does have a nice body, and she's not TOO skinny, but I don't think you can say it's idea when people's preferences vary so much.

    What is the ideal female body? The ideal female body has a temperature of about 98.6 degrees, isn't covered in warts, has 2 arms and 2 legs, 2 feet, 2 hands, a torso, neck and head. Ideal measurements are * bust, * waist, and * hips.
