Sydney, (ANI): Gwyneth Paltrow, who had to gain nine kilograms for
new film Country Strong, said that she panicked when she
became aware that she wouldn't be able to stick to her strict diet
and exercise regime.
"The nightmare thing about it is I had to stop working out," the
Sydney Morning Herald quoted her as telling Chelsea's Big Interview
Special. “At first, I panicked so I would work out a little bit and
then I had to lie and be like, 'No I didn't work out'. I'd be on
the treadmill and be like, 'I really have to stop this'. My body
didn't really fall apart until right after we finished the movie
and now I'm having problems," the Oscar-winning actress said.
However, the 38-year-old star, who is married to Coldplay
frontman Chris Martin, confessed that she enjoyed being able to
drink more for the role, as 'she is a lush'.
"I drink a lot. I like red wine, but I'll drink white, rose.
Guinness is my favourite beer, I like a dirty vodka martini. I'm
just a lush, basically," she said.
