'I'm a lush'

Gwyneth Paltrow may be most famous for her macrobiotic diets and rigorous workout routines (for more detail please refer to her hilarious website www.Goop.com), but according to the actress herself, she's a changed woman. It's out with lentils and quinoa, and in with dirty martinis and all-night drinking sessions.

According to The Daily Mail, when asked about taking on a role as an alcoholic, Gwyneth told Chelsea Handler, 'I didn’t understand how you could do something so crazy one night and kind of wreck lives in your wake and wake up and expect to be back to normal. So I actually e-mailed Robert Downey Jr. who has been sober for a long time, I was like, explain to me addiction, and he wrote me the most amazing e-mail and he helped me understand it.'

When asked about her drinking habits, she replied, 'Red wine is my favourite, but I’ll drink white, rosé... Guinness is my favourite beer. I like a dirty vodka martini. I’m just a lush, basically.' Hmm, why don't we quite believe you, Gwynnie?
