It seems that even the Goop (opens in new tab) queen - she of the exploding vaginal candle (opens in new tab) and those infamous jade eggs - has fallen for a few cosmetic tweakments over the years. Yes, Gwyneth Paltrow's fillers experience could serve as a timely cautionary tale for those considering the treatment to tackle 'Zoom face'.
Fillers seem to be front and centre for celebrities at the moment with Emilia Clarke recently revealing why she won't be going down the injectables route despite the pressure on female celebrities in Hollywood. Now Paltrow has opened up on the topic to Harper's Bazaar.
Here's what she told the title: “I had a midlife crisis when I turned 40, and I went to go see this doctor. It was a disaster. I didn’t do anything else for a long, long time. I was bruised, my forehead was completely frozen, and I didn’t look like myself at all."

She also shared that fillers often have a stigma attached to them and can be viewed as a secret to be ashamed of:
"A lot of successful women in Hollywood are motivated early on by not being good enough, and so we’re trying to prove something to ourselves...By getting injectables, it’s like admitting a vulnerability."
Paltrow has obviously moved on from the experience and found an anti-ageing solution that works for her. And she looks incredible with it.
