Gwyneth Paltrow is still one of Hollywood’s most popular actresses. With her company Goop, the actress is also at the forefront of the health and beauty business. Paltrow recently flaunted her incredible physique while dancing in a barely there black string bikini.
Gwyneth Paltrow is prepared to embark on the next decade of her life. The Oscar winner shared a gleeful Instagram photo of herself jumping in the air while wearing a sexy two-piece bikini five days before her 50th birthday on September 27. The blonde-haired beauty was beaming in the black-and-white photo, which she captioned “Musings on a Milestone.”
Gwyneth also wrote a lengthy essay for her Goop website in honor of her upcoming milestone birthday. The Iron-Man star recalls her mother Blythe Danner and late father Bruce Paltrow’s 50th birthday celebrations over 30 years ago. Gwyneth stated she has “no sense of time passed” as the mother-of-two prepares to turn 50 years old herself.
I am as connected to this feeling of longing, of promise—promise of the fall, of something ebbing—as I was 30 years ago. I understand on some level that life is linear, that I have lived x number of days thus far and I have more in the basket under my arm than I do in the field before me. But there is something about the sweetness of life that exists deep within me that is unchanged, that will not change. It is the essence of the essence. It seems to be getting sweeter.
Gwyneth did acknowledge how aging has affected her physique, describing “silver hair and fine lines” as well as other physical changes over the years. The Emma actress also mentioned how she’s made “mistakes” and “hurt people” throughout her life. She wrote, “My most lasting mistakes and the mess that comes with them have all stemmed from me not standing fully in my truth and speaking from it, come what may.”
Gwyneth did say that she believes her mistakes have led her to where she is now, and she wouldn’t change anything. As her essay went on, Gwyneth shared some of her goals for this next chapter in her life.
I would like to slow down. I would like to retreat a little bit. I would like to make my circle smaller. I would like to cook dinner more. I would like to see misunderstandings become understandings. I would like to continue to open the deepest part of myself to my husband, even though it scares me. I would like to sing more, even if it’s just in the shower. I would like to tell anyone that had a negative experience with me that I am sorry. I would like to fully acknowledge myself.
Gwyneth is proof that age is just a number. Let us all wish her an advance happy 50th birthday. To get the latest updates, keep an eye on Thirsty.
