Gwyneth Paltrow And Her Most Bizarre Quotes

A "conscious uncoupling" is not the first bizarre turn of phrase or outrageous thing Gwyneth Paltrow has been known to say over the years.

In a 2,000 word statement about the actress' separation from husband Chris Martin the couple explained the concept which apparently revolves around identifying "a negative internal object that needed healing".

Here are a few more examples of quotes which have left fans baffled.

:: From a Goop newsletter about her children's diets: "They love a brown rice stir-fry, but they also love their 'Coke of the week'." Also: "My daughter gravitates toward fresh fruit and raw nuts but will inhale a bag of hot Cheetos at the airport. It's all about balance."

The site, which is split into different subject areas headlined Make, Go, Get, Do, Be and See, was set up by Paltrow in 2008 to "share all of life's positives" and "nourish the inner aspect".

:: "When I pass a flowering zucchini plant in a garden, my heart skips a beat."

:: "I am who I am. I can't pretend to be somebody who makes $25,000 a year."

:: "I'd rather smoke crack than eat cheese from a tin."

:: To Cosmopolitan: "We're human beings and the sun is the sun - how can it be bad for you? I don't think anything that's natural can be bad for you."

:: "Beauty fades! I just turned 29, so I probably don't have that many good years left in me."

:: To Harper's Bazaar: "I think that women, especially women in my job, come to me because they know I'm very loving and non-judgmental and I'm not competitive, and I've been through a lot."

:: Speaking to the same magazine about beauty: "You know, I use organic products, but I get lasers. It's what makes life interesting, finding the balance between cigarettes and tofu."

:: Paltrow tells Harper's her guilty pleasure: "My one light American Spirit that I smoke once a week, on Saturday night."

:: On hallucinating while hiking in Arizona: "I'll never forget it. I was starting to hike up the red rocks, and honestly, it was as if I heard the rock say 'You have the answers. You are your teacher'. I thought I was having an auditory hallucination."

And the actress gave perhaps one of the most emotional Oscar acceptance speeches in history when she blubbed her way through thanking her family in 1999.

"I would not have been able to play this role had I not understood love of a tremendous magnitude and for that I thank my family," she said.

She won the best actress prize for Shakespeare In Love.
