Gwyneth Paltrow is gracing the cover of InStyle U.K.’s January 2013 issue and we’re a bit perplexed. Not by the very Upper East Side Gossip Girl pastelness of the pink Jill Sander coat she’s wearing. It’s because of her face. She looks weirdly un-Gwyneth-like (*cough* airbrush *cough*) and it’s freaking us out a little. The cover story has designer Diane von Furstenberg interviewing the actress who, of course, talks about her exercise and diet regimen. ”I was very strict for a while. I was macrobiotic for a couple of years, then I got pregnant and just ate ice cream,” she says. “What I’ve learnt 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. I don’t like sweets. My indulging is a fresh baguette with cheese and a glass of red wine, or French fries and fried zucchini. Or a turkey burger.” And our immediate response to that is, where does she put it? She’s also talking about the possibility of having more children, revealing, “My brain says, ‘Oh, I think I’m done, the kids are big now and I don’t want to go back to changing diapers’. But a part of me would love to have another. Of course, I’m old now!” We disagree. Bring back mom, Gwyneth! And let’s just take it easy on the retouching now, shall we? We actually like her face the way it is.
