Quotes (10)

  • Gwyneth Paltrow: From the beginning, my kids have eaten organic. I make a lot of their foods myself. Some people say it sounds difficult, but I don't find it so. The more I learn about food, the more amazed I am at how their properties can basically fix anything. My main feeling is that the more you keep the body as pure and healthy as possible, the healthier you will be. I feel that eating well is the best start for living well.

  • Gwyneth Paltrow: (commenting on her daughter, Apple's, name) It sounded so sweet and it conjured such a lovely picture for me- you know, apples are so sweet and they're just wholesome and it's biblical - and I just thought it sounded so lovely and... clean! And I just thought, "Perfect!"

  • Gwyneth Paltrow: I just hope the whole paparazzi thing continues in the way it's been going, which is with less interest in people like me and more interest in people like Nicole Richie - who I think is an excellent dresser, by the way. She's super-cute. It's really fair that the press attention goes to those who want it and court it.

  • Gwyneth Paltrow: I like my friends here in London. They're intelligent and not looking over my shoulder at dinner to see if there's anyone better walking in. It's not as vapid as LA.

  • Gwyneth Paltrow: I don't want to be rich and I don't want to be famous.

  • Gwyneth Paltrow: Beauty, to me, is about being comfortable in your own skin. That, or a kick-ass red lipstick.

  • Gwyneth Paltrow: I love the English way, which is not as capitalistic as it is in America. People don't talk about work and money; they talk about interesting things at dinner parties. I like living here because I don't tap into the bad side of American psychology, which is 'I'm not achieving enough, I'm not making enough, I'm not at the top of the pile.'

  • Gwyneth Paltrow: (on her father's struggle with throat cancer) It changed me more than anything else. You don't want to get to that place where you're the adult and you're palpably in the next generation. And, this shoved me into that.
