After sharing cooking and lifestyle tips on her site GOOP, Paltrow releases her first cookbook, My Father's Daughter. "My dad was incredible and he gave me the richness in my life by showing me the importance of family relationships," she says of her late father Bruce, who was the inspiration behind her best seller. "One of the best ways to do that is around the dinner table."
Though she graces the cover of PEOPLE's Most Beautiful issue, Paltrow, 40, insists getting glam is not an important part of her routine. "Around the house, I'm in jeans and a T-shirt. I don't really wear makeup," the actress says, adding husband Chris Martin teases her on the occasions she does. "He'll make a joke about it. If I've gotten fully dressed up, he'll be like, 'Oh, wow! You're Gwyneth Paltrow!' Because he's used to seeing me in like baggy shorts and frizzy hair."
After more than a decade of marriage, Paltrow and Coldplay frontman Chris Martin announce they are separating. "We have been working hard for well over a year, some of it together, some of it separated, to see what might have been possible between us," the pair says in a GOOP post titled "Conscious Uncoupling." "We have come to the conclusion that while we love each other very much we will remain separate."
