Paltrow linked to a Goop blog post titled “On Approaching 50,” where she opened up about how she came to “accept” her aging body.
“My body, a map of everyday evidence, is less timeless. An assemblage of marks and irregularities that scratch the chapters. Marked by oven burns, a finger broken in a window a long time ago, the birth of a child. Silver hair and fine lines,” she wrote.
Paltrow will mark her milestone birthday on Tuesday.
The Goop founder went on to say that while she does her best to “strive for good health” and a long life, she accepts the changes her body goes through over time.
“I accept the marks and sagging skin, the wrinkles. I accept my body and let go of the need to be perfect, to look perfect, to defy gravity, to defy logic, to challenge humanity. I accept my humanity,” Paltrow said.
She went on to write that she was ready to “transition” into her 50s and addressed her past mistakes, but said she would not “go back in time to correct them”.
The “Shakespeare in Love” actress also opened up about her long list of plans for the future.

“I’d like to slow down. I’d like to step back a bit…I’d like to cook more. I’d like to see misunderstandings become understandings,” Paltrow added.
The 49-year-old actress shares two children with ex-husband Chris Martin – daughter Apple, 18, and son Moses, 16.

She concluded her essay with a dedication to her children.
“I think of my children, now old enough to remember my ‘big’ birthday into their own adulthood,” Paltrow wrote.
“I really won’t know what it was like to turn 50 until much later, when I can reminisce from a higher perch, perhaps at one of their 50s, with a full and broken heart. simultaneously (because that’s life).”
