No surprises here! The SELF team had a blast at the cover shoot with Gwyneth Paltrow. She was so real, candid and hilarious. Check out the behind-the-scenes info from our new best friend.…

Forever slim and chic, Gwyneth showed up looking fabulous in updated classics (she sported a navy Burberry coat, grey Stella McCartney sweater and a Current/Elliott trouser jean…all brightened by her sunny, glowing face), but she quickly revealed a love for relaxed, beachy looks. She was so natural in the casual clothes from the shoot that we gave her the cut-off shorts she wore on the cover!

It's not like Gwyneth is short on talent (acting, singing, cooking…the list goes on), but who knew she's also fluent in Spanish? While getting ready for the shoot, Gwyneth chatted it up en Español with her makeup artist, Leslie Lopez.

Dining in and out are pleasures this SELFy celeb can't live without. Her star power can put a chopped salad on the map! Gwyneth revealed that she works out so much only so she can really enjoy what she eats (and sip on wine) guilt-free.
