Gwyneth Paltrow Is Finally Happy

Gwyneth Paltrow may look super serious in the November issue of Madison magazine but she reveals that she is much happier with her life these days. Gwyneth has it all - a great husband, two beautiful children, and a career where she calls the shots. However, she wasn't always so happy and healthy. Evidently when she was winning her Oscar and doing movies left and right she was sad. It was ironically, the death of her father that helped her to find a better way of life. Here are some highlights from the article:

  • I think when my dad died a lot of things changed. I went through a smoking relapse for a start and got very unhealthy. I was kind of sad in my 20s when my father was alive. I was working, going from film to film and I wasn't very happy. It was an imbalance of trying to find the thing that would make me happy, which is the irony. When my dad died it was the ultimate nightmare and yet now I've never been happier. Isn't that strange? My life changed shape. I was a broken human being. They say when God closes a door he opens a window.
  • I think [therapy} is great, if you're having issues, to find out what pattern it is that you keep repeating that stops you from moving forward.
  • My father was the love of my life, so I never wanted a serious commitment. I had a couple of nice boyfriends but never wanted them to threaten the primary relationship. That's what I think, looking back, but I didn't know it at the time."
  • I wonder if Brad and Ben were those "nice boyfriends" she wasn't interested in committing to. I guess there's more to life than money, fame and superstar gorgeous boyfriends. Anyway, it's great to see the daddy's girl back on track and happier than ever. For more pics of Gwyneth looking fabulous just

I can totally understand where she's coming from. I haven't lost my dad, but I DID just lose my mother suddenly and like she said, it's a complete nightmare to lose a parent. Your brain knocks itself out of reality and you literally connot figure out how to live on your own. You dont realize the hidden attachments you have with a parent until they are taken from you. It literally knocks the wind out of you...for a long time. Believe me, especially if you are close, which I was with my mom. A part of me died right with her. Yeah, the comments about her relationship between her and her father I think people are taking waaaay out of context, like someone said above. Im glad she's better. I wish I could talk to her and find out how she did it other than therapy, because Im still broken :( But I think she looks great in those pics, especially the one with the gray dress on the top row. I love that dress!!!

YES, they do! Less then comercial movies, but they need it to show that the audience liked it the damn think. How people can remember a movie if they dont wacth it.

Study up a little more about indie and arthouse movies. They don't NEED to do boffo box office to break even.

About her career, well, is not actually that good! I am a film obsessed and follow those movie and Oscar sites pretty close, and let me tell you her career isn’t all that great right now. Her last commercial hit was Shallow Hal in 2001 with Jack Black (he was the one that brought public for that movie) and aside this one she has Shakespeare in love (1998 ) and The Talented Mr Ripley (1999). In five years she didn’t have any hit.Thats 5 years without a successful movie, and the insiders in Hollywood take notices of this. I know what you all are gonna say, she is doing now art or not commercial movies, she isn’t doing popcorn crap anymore, BUT even those more art films needs at least some decent box office ( Brokeback Mountain was only take it serious by the Academy because it had a great box office, it means that the public embraced the movie) and that’s the problem with Gwyneth, the public doesn’t embrace her ( I would say that they don’t like her, but I don’t wanna be unfair) In her latest films Sylvia and Proof, she gave it Oscar performances (believe me she was better the Keira Knigthly in Pride and Predj.) but nobody saw those movies, so she went completely unnoticed ( Sylvia grossed less then 2 millions of dollars, and Proof grossed less the 7 millions of dollars) And let’s not forget that this is still a business, if the movie has a low budget of 10 millions of dollars, and it gross 2 millions, it is a failure. And movies are made to be seen, that’s the point of making one, even the smallest ones like Garden State can find an audience.

I agree that we tend to "marry our fathers." My father was the ideal man in my eyes, and I my husband is so similar to him. I knew he was the one from the start.

I think she is a self-absorbed brat who will never be as beautiful or classy as her mom. I'm sure she must be loving therapy... because she can just talk about herself the whole time!

I think she has a classy beauty and it's wonderful that she has found happiness. BUT - it is not normal to call your dad "the love of your life." My dad walked on water and I sought his advice and admired him like nobody else, but how can you get a fulfilling adult relationship out of that? Sorry, that's not healthy. I wanted to find a man LIKE him (and I did), but she talks like he was more of a husband figure instead of a father. I'm sure they took that out of context and she didn't mean it that way, but still.... And yes, she's a snot which makes her less likable, but still pretty!

I think she has grown up a lot. I truly think she has it all , to be honest- she has good looks, a sincere husband , 2 healthy kids and a career that she seems to be able to set at her own pace. She may have a bit of arrogance to her, but it is very fitting, that is her background. I love her mum.

well... gwen is boring... but maybe it shows that money and fame dont make a person happy... at least one raised in excess like she was.

Imabeliever Imabeliever 10 years
I think she has a natural beauty that seems to get better with age. Madonna on Oprah.. I just read the father of the boy after all of these interviews about his son's adoption just suddenly went wait a minute adopted forever forever? duh.. I think what might have just hit this poor man his that the son he gave to a better life may not be able to contribute a better life to him down the road.. something is fishy about his sudden epiphany

I don't mind her. She's a little snotty, yes, but I think she's a pretty good actress. And she sounds pretty level-headed here. She looks pretty in these photos, too. I wish she was smiling but she looks nice.

Well, they say we marry our fathers. Most of us don't wait until our real one passes away though.

i think she's so beautiful! i'm also glad that she's advocating therapy unlike crazy cruise and co. sometimes doctors can really help you if you want to stop your pattern of self-destruction.
