Gwyneth Paltrow: I like being olderGwyneth Paltrow likes “being older” because she feels more confident in herself.

The actress insists that so far, she doesn’t feel unsettled by the ageing process because the years have taught her more about her personality and strengths.

The 39-year-old blonde beauty is known for her healthy lifestyle and toned figure and said in some ways she prefers how she looks now to when she was younger.

“I like being older. It’s nice to really know yourself and feel relaxed. And I actually think I look better now than I did when I was 24, so I’m very comfortable with myself,” she was quoted by British newspaper The Daily Mail.

The mother-of-two also spoke of her busy schedule as a parent.

Paltrow explained that while she is dedicated to taking Apple, eight, and Moses, six, to school, cooking dinner and even messaging them when she is in London, she focuses on her own pursuits on trips to Los Angeles.

While she is still organising the family’s appointments, she said that in the US she takes the time to sort out her own interests.

“That’s where I focus on movie stuff and I see all my friends. It changes more I tend not to spend all my time with the kids,” she explained.
