Here are some photos of Gwyneth Paltrow on Friday in NYC, at an event for her business partner and friend (BFF?) Tracy Anderson. Tracy was launching “The Pregnancy Project” which is just a fancy, mommy-friendly name for “Tracy was shilling her DVD workout system to fat, postpartum women who Tracy will mock in interviews.” In addition to Goop, there were several other notables at the event – Christy Turlington (I can’t believe Christy is climbing on to Tracy’s bandwagon) and Molly Sims. But Goop was definitely THE STAR (the Head Goop!) of the event, of course. While she was on the red carpet, she talked about how she just turned 40 years old:
Gwyneth Paltrow is happily over the hill. The Academy Award winner (and mom to daughter Apple, 8, and son Moses, 6, with husband Chris Martin, 35) celebrated her 40th birthday September 27. At pal Tracy Anderson’s Pregnancy Project event supporting Every Mother Counts in New York City October 5, the Iron Man 3 actress spoke about what the milestone birthday means to her.
“I was really worried about it, leading up to the day, but now I feel really happy and content with my life,” Paltrow told reporters. “I’m excited to move into the next phase. It’s much more exciting than I thought it would be.”
Paltrow doesn’t predict much will change now that she’s entered a new decade.
“I think I try to promote self-growth and reflection for myself every day,” she explained.
Despite her luxe lifestyle, Paltrow — whose BFFs include Cameron Diaz, 40, and Beyonce Knowles, 31 — said she’s just like any other mom. “We have a scrimmage soccer game in our yard every day after school. It’s so fun,” she said. Though Moses prefers soccer, “Apple has been really loving gymnastics,” the star said.
Regardless of the activity, Paltrow is glad her children are being actively challenged on a daily basis. “I feel that mental happiness and physical happiness are so closely related, and especially for kids, because they have so much energy.”

Hahaha, Gwyneth Paltrow is the same age as Sofia Vergara. Except Sofia is a bit more honest about how she feels about turning 40. According to Sofia, “Turning 40 is horrible. People that say it isn’t are full of sh-t.” Which do you prefer? Sofia’s brutal honesty or Gwyneth’s incessant Goopiness, her subtext of “Forty years of being a narcissistic elitist, huzzah! Oooh, I stepped on a peasant.”
After the Pregnancy Project event, Gwyneth was just super-exhausted with all of the peasant-y shilling, so she got to celebrate her birthday again, this time with a dinner party in Manhattan’s Elio’s, an Italian joint. Guests included Beyonce, Steven Spielberg, Kate Capshaw, Blythe Danner, Jessica Seinfeld, Chelsea Handler, Kristen Wiig, Ethan Hawke, Jake Gyllenhaal, Christy Turlington, The Beastie Boys’ Mike D, Cameron Diaz and Chris Martin.
Who amongst them would be capable of telling Goop that she should start taking better care of her skin? Who amongst them will tell her to stop f—king flat-ironing her hair?
