Grassing up Gwyneth Paltrow
IF YOU’VE ever suspected you can’t achieve an A-list figure unless you live on a lettuce leaf, it seems you may be right.
Beautiful beanpole Gwyneth Paltrow has long been a healthy living advocate, but now her former personal chef has dished the dirt on what she actually eats — and it really does amount to very little.
The Iron Man star, who ‘consciously uncoupled’ from hubby Coldplay’s Chris Martin in 2014, is known for founding lifestyle website Goop, cooking up two recipe books and releasing her own brand of ready meals — but when it comes to what she’ll eat herself, former employee Kate McAloon reveals she’s ‘very strict’.
‘When I first started cooking for Gwyneth and Chris Martin,’ she spills, ‘I had a brief from their assistants… they eat nothing.’
Apparently ‘nothing’ amounted to a whole heap of veg as they ‘avoided any sugars, anything sweet, no dairy’.
But chef Kate admits she couldn’t resist spicing up their lives a bit.
‘I realised as I started adding more ingredients in, they said, “Your food is getting better”,’ she said, adding: ‘That’s what happens when you eat more than grass!’
