Gwyneth Paltrow Says Chris Martin "Would Take a Bullet" For Her

Gwyneth Paltrow is kicking off the new year with a stunning magazine cover. The 44-year-old actress posed in a Valentine's Day-ready ensemble for InStyle's February issue, which hits newsstands on Jan. 6, and opens up in her interview about how Goop has changed her life, why she doesn't care about what people think of her, and how she and ex-husband Chris Martin have contributed to "the culture of divorce."

  • On making the move from actress to entrepreneur after founding Goop: "I'll think, 'Oh my god, I used to have a life of a spoiled movie star . . . What the f*ck? Why did I do this to myself?'"
  • On not caring what people think of her as she gets older: "When I turned 40, I felt like I got this free software upgrade that I wasn't expecting. It just happened. Suddenly I was like, 'Oh, this is fantastic: I don't care! I like myself, and I'm just going to live my life. I'm going to stop worrying and tearing myself down.'"
  • On her ongoing friendship with ex-husband Chris Martin: "He's at my house every single day. We have our own lives but we still have our family life. To this day, Chris would take a bullet for me, even though I'm not his wife. I honestly think Chris and I have contributed something positive to the culture of divorce."
