"The first time, you are horrified," she tells Harper's Bazaar in its September issue. "It's all lovely when you are pregnant; but when you are not pregnant and you haven't been for a couple of months and you are still carrying tons of extra weight and everything's all hanging and sagging, you think, How is this ever going to go back? But it does. If you do a lot of working out."
Both times she was expecting, Paltrow, 33, says she gained 40 lbs., and lost 20 by the time she came out of the hospital.
"With Apple I kept the extra 20 pounds on until she was three months old, and then it came off," she says. "And that's exactly what's happening now." She's been working out, "but not dieting, because I am a milk machine."
But should anyone think her figure is perfect again, Paltrow says, "They should see the cellulite on my thighs right now."

Any beauty secrets she'll pass on to Apple? "Drink tons of water, and wear sunscreen," she says. "And I really do think that if you eat fresh, organic, good food, you look like it."
