Can You Tell Gwyneth Paltrow Gained 20 Pounds?

Gwyneth Paltrow gained 20 pounds for her role in the upcoming Country Strong. I have no idea how she did that. I’ve read GOOP. The woman pretty much lives on organic kale and almond butter. Oh, wait, now I know. Fried chicken. Thanks, CNN! Well, good for her – it seems like if you live a lifestyle where kale is a staple (which most actresses pretty much have to) it must be really fun to chow down on some fried chicken to get ready for a role. That said, I would never in a million years be able to tell that Gwyneth Paltrow gained any weight at all for that role. How skinny was she before that I’m looking at her here in the trailer and still thinking, “well, yeah, she looks movie star thin to me?”

      I’m guessing she already dropped the weight by the CMA performance. Her trainer, Tracy Anderson, said she cried when Gwyneth (the star pupil, I suppose) was told to pack on 20. Tracy also said, though, that the weight just peeled right off post-shooting (as I suppose weight would do for Gwyneth), so it seems Gwyneth is back to her pre-20 pounds figure.

      No, she still looks really thin.

      Unrelated: I find her really annoying, but if that’s her actual singing voice, I gotta hand it to her – she can sing competently.

      Yeah, she still looks really thin. *Side note* I didn’t even recognize Tim McGraw without the cowboy hat! Maybe I’m just behind the times since I didn’t watch The Blind Side and don’t listen to country

      ummm, was it of muscle? Was she working out more or something, her abs look pretty ripped… she does not look +20lbs.

      AGREED. I was confused the first time I heard people talking about how she gained weight for the role. ADDITIONAL QUESTION: why would she need to gain weight to play a fictional character?? It’s not like she’s trying to look like someone else….she was creating the character for the first time.

      That looks like a good movie.
