Dame Gwyneth Paltrow has some hot new tips for "how to create a lean body shape" that you probably want to check out immediately.

Of all the "slimming secrets" shared by "actress and lifestyle guru Gwyneth Paltrow," my favorite is definitely the last one.

One of the best cheat products I have found for the body is a tinted moisturiser called Prtty Peaushun. It is shimmery, which gives the illusion of contour; you can see muscle definition. It is great for legs too, and leaves skin looking really hydrated. I wore it on my stomach when I was filming Iron Man 3.

The thing I love most about Gwyneth Paltrow's "tips" is how they don't even try to pretend all this shit is about "health," but about achieving a socially-approved body shape. Points for being nakedly honest about the aesthetic prejudice underlying your rank fat hatred!
