May 14 2013 - 2:18am

Who is this new Gwyneth Paltrow [1]? Long considered one of Hollywood's most private stars, we have learned so much about her in recent weeks and, in some cases, more than one perhaps wanted to know. She's had no shortage of opportunities to divulge previously unknown facts about her life, as she traveled the world doing interviews to promote her book It's All Good, movie Iron Man 3, and business Goop.

From her grooming habits to her thoughts on Kanye West [2], we have rounded up Gwyneth's most recent quotable moments! And may the bean-spilling continue.

On bikini waxes: "Every time I have a bikini wax, Cameron Diaz [3] holds me down." — Australian Interview [4]

On parenting: "I think it's different when you have an office job, because it's routine and, you know, you can do all the stuff in the morning and then you come home in the evening. When you're shooting a movie, they're like, 'We need you to go to Wisconsin for two weeks,' and then you work 14 hours a day and that part of it is very difficult. I think to have a regular job and be a mom is not as, of course there are challenges, but it's not like being on set." — E! News, 2013 [5]

On her laid back style: "Around the house, I'm in jeans and a T-shirt. I don't really wear makeup . . . [My husband will] make a joke about it. If I've gotten fully dressed up, he'll be like, 'Oh, wow! You're Gwyneth Paltrow [6]!' Because he's used to seeing me in like baggy shorts and frizzy hair." — People [7]

On her obsession: "Murray's cheese shop. That store is my heaven. I love it. I'm obsessed with it. I go every time I'm in New York. They're like, 'Where's the stinkiest cheese we have? She's here!'" POPSUGAR Fashion, 2013 [8]

On the Met Gala: "I'm never going again. It was so un-fun. It was boiling. It was too crowded. I did not enjoy it at all." — USA Today [9]

On public transportation: "I do ride the subway! I'm not in New York as much as I used to be, so I ride the subway in London all the time. The last time I rode the subway in New York was a year and a half ago, and the tube in London — last week." — POPSUGAR [10]

On marriage: "It's hard being married. You go through great times, you go through terrible times. We're the same as any couple . . . I asked my dad once, 'How did you and mom stay married for 33 years?' And he said, 'Well, we never wanted to get divorced at the same time'. And I think that's what happens. . . .When two people throw in the towel at the same time, then you break up, but if one person's saying, 'come on, we can do this,' you carry on." — Glamour UK [11]

On her least favorite asset: "It's to do with butt cheeks." — The Tonight Show, 2013 [12]

On botox: "I've probably tried everything. I would be scared to go under the knife, but you know, talk to me when I'm 50. I'll try anything. Except I won't do Botox again, because I looked crazy. I looked like Joan Rivers!" — Harper's Bazaar, [13]

On her grooming preferences: "I kind of had a disaster. I was doing a show and I changed there and I went I couldn't wear underwear. I don't think I can tell this story on TV. . . Well, let's just say everyone went scrambling for a razor . . . I work a '70s vibe. You know what I mean?" — The Ellen DeGeneres Show [14]
