Gwyneth Paltrow: 'There's nothing uptight about me!'

Gwyneth Paltrow says there's a big misconception out there she'd like to clear up: “That I’m uptight. There’s nothing uptight about me! I’ve got this ice-blonde reputation and that’s just not me," Paltrow tells Ladies' Home Journal. "I do silly things in public all the time, like hosting 'Saturday Night Live,' or I’ll go out with friends and have a good time. I try to live my life to t

Gwyneth Paltrow says there's a big misconception out there she'd like to clear up: “That I’m uptight. There’s nothing uptight about me! I’ve got this ice-blonde reputation and that’s just not me," Paltrow tells Ladies' Home Journal. "I do silly things in public all the time, like hosting 'Saturday Night Live,' or I’ll go out with friends and have a good time. I try to live my life to the fullest even if it means making a fool of myself.”

Paltrow has been breaking into more singing and television work as of late, but she's also got another project -- her cookbook, "My Father's Daughter: Delicious, Easy Recipes Celebrating Family & Togetherness." She told the magazine that writing the book was "a way for me to honor my dad (Paltrow's father Bruce died in 2002). We learned how to cook together."

As for Paltrow's eating habits, she said, “There’s the me that will have a salad, a bowl of pasta and a glass of wine, and then there’s the other me that will have four glasses of wine, fried zucchini, pasta, chicken parmigiana and dessert. I try not to do that other version too much. I was at a party having dinner next to Mario Batali and he was like, 'You’re the only person I know who eats more than me.'"
