Gwyneth Paltrow poses in bikini and embraces ‘wrinkles’ ahead of 50th birthday


Gwyneth Paltrow will soon be lighting candles for her 50th birthday, but until then, she is reflecting on what this milestone means to her.

The Iron Man The actress posted a black-and-white bikini photo to Instagram on Sept. 22, which she linked to a lengthy personal essay on self-acceptance. As Paltrow approaches her own special day on September 27, she said she feels the weight of the moment as a time of growth and reflection.

She reflected on how aging has changed her body, including “silver hair and fine lines.”

“My body, a map of everyday evidence, is less timeless,” she writes. “Scars from oven burns, a broken finger in a window a long time ago, the birth of a child.”

Paltrow, however, said she accepts these signs of aging on her body.

“And while I do what I can to strive for good health and longevity, to avoid weakening muscles and receding bones, I have a mantra that I insert into these reckless thoughts that try to derail: I agree,” she wrote on Goop, the website of her wellness and lifestyle company. “I accept the marks and sagging skin, the wrinkles. I accept my body and let go of the need to be perfect, to look perfect, to defy gravity, to defy logic, to challenge humanity. I accept my humanity.”
