When asked by her 16-year-old daughter, at what age she felt her prettiest, Gwyneth said she felt really great in her 30s and she thinks ageing is hard, Gwyneth says in a video on her lifestyle site.

“To get wrinkles and get closer to menopause, and all these things… Luckily, what’s happening at the same time in parallel… is you just start to like yourself, I think you get to a point where it’s almost like your sort of pulchritude is waning in a way and your inner beauty is, like, really coming out, and so it’s this funny shift that’s happening,” she adds.
