American actress Gwyneth Paltrow is one of only a few Hollywood stars who is embracing the natural aging process. The star who will soon be 50, headed over to her Instagram page to share a snap of her natural self looking quite amazing in a two-piece yellow bikini. In her caption, she explained that she is letting her “loose skin and wrinkles” all hangout.
Judging by the snap, she still has a long way to go before she actually has any loose skin or wrinkles but she was showered with praise for debunking social media’s usually high beauty standards for people of all ages.
Gwyneth Paltrow embraces 50!
Celebrities have always been quite open about going under the knife and getting all sorts of procedures to keep themselves looking youthful.
While there are the secret surgery bunch – who always deny getting anything done even though it’s quite clear – there is also the group of celebs who have decided against trying to stop the aging process.
Actress Gwyneth Paltrow is one of them.
Taking to her Instagram page on Thursday this week, the Shakespeare in Love star shared a snap of herself in a bikini which included a lengthy caption about how she is embracing every wrinkle and every bit of loose skin that comes her way.
“My body [is] a map of the evidence of all the days. … A collection of marks and irregularities that dog-ear the chapters. Scarred from oven burns, a finger smashed in a window long ago, the birth of a child. Silver hair and fine lines.”
“I accept the marks and the loosening skin, the wrinkles,” she wrote. “I accept my body and let go of the need to be perfect, look perfect, defy gravity, defy logic, defy humanity,” reads part of the mother of two’s caption.
The Oscar-winning actress also added that she plans on slowing down and making her circle smaller as she edges ever so close to fifty.
