The 40-year-old actress got everyone talking when she went to the premiere of Iron Man 3 in a sheer dress that left little to the imagination this week.
The actress attended the Californian premiere of her movie on Wednesday in the Antonio Berardi gown with sheer panelling, that didn’t allow for underwear.
In an appearance on the Ellen show in the US, to be aired today, the 40-year-old actress admits she had a personal grooming issue before she hit the red carpet.
“Yeah, Oh, I kind of had a disaster. I was doing a show and I changed there and I went I couldn’t wear underwear. I don’t think I can tell this story on TV,” Gwyneth told the audience.
“Well, let’s just say everyone went scrambling for a razor…So I went from being the most beautiful to the most humiliated. In one day… I work a 70’s vibe. You know what I mean?”
She also told the chat show host she was stunned to be chosen by People magazine as the Most Beautiful Woman in the world.
The mum of two said: “My publicist of like 22 years, Stephen Huvane, sent me an email. And honestly I was like this is a joke. I reread it three times. I was like oh, he sent this to the wrong client. Like there’s no way,”
Gwyneth said. “My name wasn’t on it….I was like oh this is not for me and it was actually psychologically interesting because for a minute I really thought that someone was playing a joke on me. I talked about it with my shrink.”
