Gwyneth Paltrow, whose latest film, Two Lovers, comes out in February, works out two hours a day and is completely loyal to the “artist” responsible for her figure, her friend Tracy Anderson. In the early new year, Anderson will open her first NYC gym, the Tracy Anderson Method, where she’ll publicly debut her exercise systems. Gwyneth talked to Gotham about Tracy’s exercise regime, motherhood, and if she’ll ever do a musical duet with her superstar husband, Chris Martin.
On if she’s planning on baby number three: “In theory, I’d love to. But it’s really hard for me when I’m pregnant—I’m sick as a dog for months. Sometimes I think, Oh my God, I want another one right now, I’ll sustain any amount of vomiting or whatever. And then sometimes I think, Gosh, everyone’s sleeping through the night now. If it’s meant to happen, it’ll happen.”
On only doing one film a year now to be with her kids: “Yeah, definitely. I haven’t starred in a film since my kids were born, and I don’t think I will. I’ll never get these days back—they’re so delicious, and precious, and hilarious, I don’t want to miss them.”
On if she plans to collaborate with her husband on a duet: “No, no, no, no.”
On if she plans to collaborate with Madonna on a duet: “I don’t think so. I don’t think the acting/recording thing really works. Maybe if you’re an urban act, but I’m not sure it works if you’re an actor.”
On her favorite role so far: “Besides motherhood? Hmm….”
On her idea of perfect happiness: “Lying in the grass on a sunny day with my kids on top of me.”
