Gwyneth Paltrow doesn't do anything half heartedly, so we're surprised to hear that she hasn't always been extremely health conscious.
Here's what she said:
"When my father was diagnosed with cancer, it really changed the way that I lived – it changed my whole lifestyle. I completely changed my diet, and I got very serious about exercising and about exposure to toxins."
This was over a decade ago, and you can see how it has kept her in the best kind of shape.
"It really changed the way that I thought. I think I had more of a laissez-faire attitude about my health, and when he got cancer it was a real shock. … It was sort of like the break of my adolescence. This is my one life, and I need to invest in myself and my family and make sure that we can do what we can to stay healthy."
Such an amazing and positive attitude to come from the depths of something so sad.
It's no wonder that not only has she reshaped her own health, but she has taken up arms against cancer and is actively helping others!
"It's emotional for me because I keep getting emails from my mother saying how proud she is of me that I'm doing it, and she keeps talking about my father. It's emotional to be in front of the cameras and encouraging people to join the fight against cancer. Especially when you're doing it in memory of someone that you loved so much."
Keep up the amazing work, GOOP. You're making a difference not only in your life, but the lives of others as well!
