    Gwyneth Paltrow Says She Looked "Completely Frozen" After Getting "Disaster" Anti-Wrinkle Injections During A "Midlife Crisis"

    “It was a disaster."

    Gwyneth Paltrow might be the holistic head of Goop, but she's done her fair share of experimenting with face injections — and suffered through some bad ones.

    Paltrow recently recalled a "midlife crisis" she had when she "turned 40," where she went to see a doctor to smooth over some lines and it ended up being "a disaster."

    “I didn’t do anything else for a long, long time,” Paltrow told Harper's Bazaar. “I was bruised, my forehead was completely frozen, and I didn’t look like myself at all.”

    Paltrow says that she’ll always be “an open book” when it comes to her cosmetic procedures. “It’s nice when women share,” she said.

    “By getting injectables, it’s like admitting a vulnerability,” she said. “I think sometimes honesty is perceived to be a weakness. … There does seem to be a lot of stigma around injections.”

    These days, she says she's figured out what works for her, and the actor joked that a "teeny drop" of injectables make her look “less pissed off.”

    Hey, everyone is free to do what they want with their own bodies, but it's also OK to look pissed off too.
