GWYNETH PALTROW AND TRACY ANDERSON LAUNCH PREGNANCY DVD

Gwyneth and Tracy, who appear in the cover interview for the latest edition of US magazine Redbook, talk Gwyneth’s body issues, turning 40 and the unexpected perks of Tracy’s method, which, according to Gwyneth, had the added benefit of improving her sex life with Coldplay frontman hubby Chris Martin.

‘It did such wonders for my life, my confidence, my sex life, everything.’

Trainer Tracy added: ‘When you feel your best, you’re more confident in bed, It’s not lights-out, under-the-covers sex. It’s more like, “Take a look at this!”‘

In October, Gwyneth, along with model Christy Turlington, were on hand to help Anderson launch her latest DVD series, The Pregnancy Project, and the actress has always been vocal in her praise of how Tracy transformed her body.

‘With my daughter it had been easier, but this time, no matter what I did, I felt stuck. I couldn’t shift the weight. But I met Tracy and she was this force from the second I met her,’ Gwyneth tells Redbook.

‘She pulled my pants off. I’ll never forget it. She was like, “Oh, my God, wow, I just am so surprised, because you look so good in clothes. I wasn’t expecting this.”‘

Gwyneth also talked about turning 40 in September of this year: ‘The morning of my 40th birthday, my children and husband woke me up with hugs and gifts, and I proceeded to have the best week of my life.

‘I feel really happy being 40, now that I’m on the other side of it. There was definitely some uncomfortable anticipation.

‘But I’m amazed at what I’ve been able to accomplish, that I’ve maintained my important relationships and have such incredible women friends, that I have two funny, beautiful children who can give me a real life. In a way, I feel like no one should make big life decisions until 40. It’s when it all starts to settle and become clear.’
