A prim and proper Gwynnie fronts the subscriber’s issue (right) of May’s Harper’s Bazaar, while she’s a bit more relaxed for the newsstand cover. (Wind-swept hair.) As well as talking “love & babies” with the magazine, she discusses new hobbies like “finding a balance between cigarettes and tofu,” marital bliss with Chris Martin — “it’s cool; it’s good!” — and how, in “her fifth decade” as Harper’s gracefully puts it, she sees herself as a parental figure for today’s young starlets:
“I think that women, especially women in my job, come to me because they know I’m very loving and nonjudgmental and I’m not competitive, and I’ve been through a lot. And so they come round to talk about their stuff. I’m a bit of a mother hen. Everyone wants a home-cooked meal and to come over and talk about where they are in their life.”
That’s just Gwyneth being Gwyneth. She cares.
7. “A Lot”
She really cares.
In conclusion: Gwynnie in a swimmie.
