Gwyneth Paltrow wowed in a white Balenciaga by Nicolas Ghesquière bustier ($5,950) on the May 2013 cover of Harper's Bazaar magazine, on newsstands now. The 40-year-old actress and mom of Apple and Moses opened up about her milestone birthday — and Botox!
On moving back to California from London:
"Just to have my kids be in the sun every day—picking avocados, going for a swim. Even for two years or something, and come back when they go to senior school."
On turning 40:
"I'm at quite a pivotal point: Do I want to go back more into films? Do I want another child? Do I want to move back to the States? You can call me a lot of things, but you can't call me complacent!"
On her favorite skincare products:
"I really used to be bad with products, but now I exfoliate every night and use a lot of organic oils on my face. And I have a great dermatologist in L.A. who gave me this amazing laser the last time I was there. It's called Thermage. It's not invasive. I went out to dinner right afterward and I didn't look crazy, but it's quite painful. It feels like someone's smacking your face with a rubber band that has an electric shock in it. But I would do it again, because I feel like it took five years off my face."
On plastic surgery and Botox:
"I've probably tried everything. I would be scared to go under the knife, but you know, talk to me when I'm 50. I'll try anything. Except I won't do Botox again, because I looked crazy. I looked like Joan Rivers!"
On having more kids:
"I mean, if I want to have another kid, I gotta kind of get on it! But then you see a baby and you smell a baby! And you're like, 'Yep, I do.' I don't know. It's a very big decision, so we'll see. Anyway, I'm not doing it this month!"
