If you ask me, I think this is just the beginning of the Gwyneth Paltrow media blitz that we’re getting here. I know, ti seems like she’s been almost EVERYWHERE these days and with both her cookbook and her new film, “Iron Man 3″ coming out, we’ll be seeing and hearing more of her in the coming weeks! The actress graces this month’s cover of Harper’s Bazaar magazine where she talks about leaving London behind, being that girlfriend everyone goes to for advice and having another baby. Here are some highlights:

Paltrow turned 40 last fall and she says she feels on the cusp of change“I’m at quite a pivotal point: Do I want to go back more into films? Do I want another child? Do I want to move back to the States?” “You can call me a lot of things, but you can’t call me complacent!”

There’s something refreshingly frank and fearless about this new fifth-decade Gwyneth“I don’t hold on to fear as much as I used to, because I’ve learned a lot about genuinely not caring what strangers think about me,” she says. “It’s very liberating. It’s very empowering, and I’ve learned a lot of that from Jay-—Shawn Carter—Z, because his approach to life is very internal. It’s a very good lesson to learn.”

On 10 years with Coldplay rocker Chris Martin: “We are growing into very similar people. It’s cool, it’s good. It’s not always easy, though!”

 On beauty: “I use organic products, but I get lasers. It’s what makes life interesting, finding the balance between cigarettes and tofu.”  “I’ve probably tried everything,” she continues. “I would be scared to go under the knife, but you know, talk to me when I’m 50. I’ll try anything. Except I won’t do Botox again, because I looked crazy.”
