Following the debut of her Harper's Bazaar UK cover, Gwyneth Paltrow flaunts her abs on the February 2015 cover of Marie Claire. On the cover shot by Jan Welters, GP is wearing a MUGLER SPRING 2015 black crop silver embellished top with the white matching skirt with a cut-out side detail and a thigh split. Beauty wise, her look was complimented with an espresso smokey eye and a nude lip.
In the issue, GP discusses her relationship with Chris Martin, her children, her costars over the years and more. This is a great cover of GP but I am still waiting on the mags to gives us more of a different range of celebs/models on the covers. Continue below to see more images and to read excerpts from her feature & interview. For more details, visit MarieClaire.com and pick up a copy when the issue hits newsstand on January 13.
On her breakup with Chris Martin:"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."
On her costars over the years:
"Whether it's Morgan Freeman [1995's Se7en] at the beginning of my career or Johnny Depp in my last movie [this month's Mortdecai], I feel on-my-knees gratitude for being considered a good enough actor to work with actors of that caliber."
On her current relationship with Martin:
"We've worked really fucking hard to get to [this] point. But we're very, very close, and it's so nice. I feel like it's, in a way, the relationship we were meant to have."
"I know what I want to do, and I'm going to do it. I don't care so much about the men, but I wish that women were slightly more understanding of other women. A lot of women reporters try to pit me against other women doing entrepreneurial things. There's room for everybody."
"I'm in meetings with investment bankers, VC firms, private equity firms—you name it, across the board, men. Women in 30 minutes can get more accomplished than men in two hours."
On raising children:
"I think we are all genuinely doing our best, it's hard to have children and a career, and all some women seem to do is judge other women's choices. I find that demoralizing and unhelpful. Where is the wisdom coming out of this situation? I don't see where this is getting us anywhere in terms of a cultural discussion."
