After delivering one of her children, she looked like the type of actress that we see lately who is pressured by studio heads to conform to grueling and Hellish workouts in order to be in sublime shape days after delivery. While I don't doubt that Gwenyth worked her fanny off for her interview with Oprah, during the show she admitted that she was also wearing a girdle. She's a real woman... gotta love that! Gorgeous, lovely, and humble are all words I'd use to describe Gwenyth, our Eve's Apples May Eve of the Month.
If you haven't had a chance, Gwenyth also has a fantastic blog called "GOOP" that is about "nourishing the inner aspect." While visiting the site you can get tips on food, places, shopping, things to do, how to live life and what is happening.
Here is to Gwenyth inspiring the rest of us to "Celebrate Our Inner Eves" and nourish our "inner aspect(s)."

"Are your underwear drawers overflowing, yet you often find yourself with nothing to wear? Time to do a little pruning and purge yourself of anything that shouldn’t be taking up precious drawer real estate.
First, ditch anything you wouldn’t want to be seen wearing—by a love or lust interest, a doctor, or even the other ladies in the gym locker room. Then start inspecting what remains. Say sayonara if:
• It’s discolored or faded. Has bright white become dingy grey? Is a much-loved item past its prime and ready to retire?
• The elastic is going—or gone. Just because something is not seen by others is no reason it should still be worn. If it’s lost its original shape, toss it.
• It’s worn out, frayed, or threadbare. Into the waste bin it goes. Do you think tattered lingerie is like a child’s security blanket? Let it go.
• The underwires are distorted, or even poking dangerously through fabric. No further explanation necessary I hope.
• It hasn’t been worn in over a year. There must be a reason. Was it buried—out of sight, out of mind? Or is it not an everyday item, something that should go into storage? Anything you haven’t touched in six months should be tried on and reassessed.
• It doesn’t fit properly anymore. Weight fluctuates. Women hang on to bras, especially expensive ones, waiting for their body to return to an earlier incarnation. This happens frequently with women who were recently pregnant. Even if they eventually end up at their former size, their shape sometimes has changed. Stop holding out for the day you lose a lot of weight or dramatically change your body. Buy new things when that time actually comes—believe me, you’ll be excited to treat yourself then!.."
