Gwyneth Paltrow has mastered the art of living! In InStyle‘s October issue, the actress, mother, and Goop.com creator talked to Diane von Furstenberg about her family life, her career, and what she’s learned at 40—to make life fun! “I was very strict for a while,” she tells the designer. “I was macrobiotic for a couple of years, then I got pregnant and just ate ice cream. What I’ve learned is I want to enjoy my life, and food is a big part of it. I love to cook and feed people. I cook every day.” And that optimistic outlook—along with a healthy dose of good taste—is what continues to draw her fans to her website, Goop.com, as well as attract new ones to her just-launched app, City Guides (check it out here!): “Goop readers trust my taste and know that I know where to find cool stuff. A city guide is a fast and fun way for them to have access to where I actually eat, shop, get a manicure, and hang out.” Read more about Gwyneth’s energized and positive take on life in the new October issue of InStyle, on newsstands Friday, September 21st.
