Gwyneth is known for her rigid crazy diets and being this super healthy, earthy woman which is why people were shocked to see her enjoy a beer at dinner. The pregnant actress had a Guinness with her husband, Chris Martin at dinner which happened to be at a sushi bar. NY Daily News reports:

.... the stares turned to gapes when the pregnant actress downed a beer.

"People were looking and waving, and she just tried to melt further into the corner," according to one witness, who said she ordered salad and what appeared to be sushi.

Diners in the 30-seat restaurant observed Martin exit the BYOB joint to pick up several bottles of the Irish stout Guinness at a nearby deli. And they were surprised when Paltrow, who is five months pregnant with the couple's second child, drank one herself.

Paltrow is famous for her rigorous macrobiotic diet, although she altered it the last time she was pregnant, with her daughter, Apple. Some experts recommend a little Guinness for expecting mothers, because of the brew's high iron content.

Her rep confirmed she drank the alcoholic beverage, but said she ate only cooked food, not sushi.

The sad part of this story is her rep had to actually be bothered to clear up the fact that she had a drink. It's not like she was doing shots or even drinking a bottle of wine. I loved that apparently Guinness is recommended for pregnant women since it's high in iron. Where do people come up with these things? I think it's good that Gwyneth seems to be a little more laid back - everyone always thinks she is so uptight - maybe we do have the wrong image of her.
