Gwyneth Paltrow thanks her good buddy and business partner Tracy Anderson with giving her the butt of a 22-year-old stripper!
While talking to reporters at the opening of Tracy Anderson’s flagship studio in Los Angeles, Gwyneth recalled one incident in particular when she was trying on bathing suits, and someone complimented her figure.
“I said, ‘You know, this isn’t so bad for 40, right?’” Paltrow mused of her butt. “And [my friend] goes, ‘It’s not so bad for a 22-year-old stripper!’”
Prior to going full-force with celeb trainer Anderson’s workout regimen, Paltrow claimed she was convinced that there was no way she could change her rear. “Oh, I knew it would never change!” she told reporters. “I had exercised before I had met her … I had done Ashtanga yoga and pilates and I [ran] and I thought I was fit, you know?”
But, Paltrow said, Anderson convinced her that though she was in good shape, she could transform her figure completely through the rigorous routine.
You gotta give it to her. No matter what you think about Gwyneth, her body is ridiculous. Want more proof? Check out her less-clothed pictures after the jump!
And that hard work clearly paid off! At Thursday’s big event — also attended by Kim Kardashian and Stacy Keibler — the Goop founder wowed on the red carpet with a youthful, bright magenta Victoria Beckham dress with a black zip down the back that showed off her shapely legs and figure. The 40-year-old mother of two paired her dress with a pair of black-and-neon orange Michael Kors heels.
Paltrow added that she always pushes herself to do the workouts every day — no matter what.
“I just sob and then kick and scream and then I just force myself to do it,” she said. “I just got obsessed. When you see results like that, I started following everything she said and she completely transformed my body and I’m so grateful.”
