Actor Gwyneth Paltrow celebrated her 48th birthday by posing in “nothing but her birthday suit” – and her daughter’s reaction to the photograph was pure gold. The IronMan actor and Goop founder, who turned 48 on September 27, marked the special day by baring it all for a photoshoot in her garden. A picture that she shared on Instagram shows her posing outdoors with her arms placed strategically across her chest.
To mark the occasion, she shared an Instagram post with her 7.3 million followers where she’s posing in her garden, hand to face, totally in the nude.
Smiling widely and embracing her body, she thanked followers for their good wishes.
Captioning the image, she said: “In nothing but my birthday suit today… thank you all so much for the birthday wishes and thank you to @goop ‘s insanely amazing brand new body butter for making me think I can still get my kit off. 💙 #goopgenes”
One Instagram user similarly commented: ‘Why in the world would you ever post this?’.
The vast majority of comments, however, praised Gywneth for the move, with many applauding the star and sharing their enthusiasm for all bodies being celebrated, whatever your age.
One user simply said: ‘What’s inappropriate? It’s a beautiful and tasteful picture. We all have human bodies and they are all wonderful in their own ways. There is nothing shameful about bodies—just our attitudes towards them IMO.’
Unsurprisingly, several followers had something to say about the actresses’ post, including Gwyneth and Coldplay frontman Chris Martin’s 16-year-old daughter, Apple.
Commenting from her private Instagram account, she wrote: ‘MOM’, to which Gwyneth replied with three laughing face emojis.
Apple later followed up with a ‘You are killing it tho.’, showing her support for her Mum.
Apple is Gwyneth Paltrow’s daughter with Coldplay frontman Chris Martin. While her reaction to the photograph left many in splits, several of her mother’s friends and co-stars dropped more appreciative comments.
