Gwyneth: I’m super stealthy

Gwyneth Paltrow doesn't mind where she spends Christmas as long as it's with loved ones.

The 42-year-old actress has two children with her estranged husband Chris Martin.

While this is the first Christmas that the couple, who were married for ten years, will spend apart, Gwyneth is still excited about the presents she has bought for her loved ones.

"When I'm giving gifts I definitely like them to be a surprise, absolutely," she told Hello! magazine. "And I manage until the end. I'm a good secret keeper."

The Iron Man star didn't reveal what she had bought daughter Apple, ten and son Moses, eight. But she did say what the best gift she could ever pick out would be.

"[To help them] be completely and unabashedly themselves," she said.

Gwyneth spends most of the year travelling around the world for work. But despite her constant jetsetting, she isn't too fixated on where she spends December 25.

"[It can be] anywhere, as long as it's with people I love," she said. "I don't mind if it's a city Christmas or a country Christmas - just as long as I've got my people with me."

Once Christmas is out of the way, the Oscar-winner will be looking to the New Year. However, she isn't a fan of making resolutions and instead likes to work on herself throughout the year.

"Every day I try to resolve to do the things I would like to do, or be more of the person I would like to be," she explained. "But I don't make a big resolution because I think that's a way to break a promise to yourself. You fail and feel bad."
