Gwyneth Paltrow is one of the few women in Hollywood who’ll tell you that aging isn’t so bad. The 43-year-old actress is by far happier in her 40s than she was in her 20s.
Paltrow told PeopleStyle that she was a “mess”in her 20s and is “thankful” to be where she’s at today.
“I was a mess in my 20s! I would never want to go back,” Paltrow says. “I’m so thankful to be where I am.”

Gwyneth Paltrow calls her 40s “incredible” and wishes “more women had told me that at 40 you sort of stop worrying about what other people think about you, and you come into yourself in the most phenomenal way. I think the 40s are such a gift, and I feel more beautiful now than I did 10 years ago or 20 years ago.”
For being an A-list star, this a rather humble outlook. It’s inspiring coming from a celebrity who’s immersed in a world where youth and appearance is everything.
She adds that part of feeling more beautiful is being more comfortable in her own skin.
“I think even though physically I don’t look like I did when I was 25, I feel beautiful because I feel like myself,” Paltrow added.
On March 1, Gwyneth’s new skincare line launches on goop.com. She credits her skincare regime for how great she looks. She uses the Exfoliating Instant Facial and Replenishing Night Cream. The star reveals that she wakes up “feeling like my skin is alright!”
Gwyneth Paltrow isn’t exactly in love with her hair, however. She says everyday is a bad hair day because it’s three different textures. She admits to leaving and saying, “Whatever. I woke up like this. I don’t know what to tell you.”
