Gwyneth Paltrow: 'I'll give anything insane a go!'

Gwyneth Paltrow isn't afraid of trying things for her Goop.com newsletter, but found the bee sting treatment she recently tested really painful.

Gwyneth Paltrow will "pretty much try anything".

The 43-year-old actress has tried a variety of somewhat out there beauty treatments for her Goop.com newsletter, including vaginal steaming and getting deliberately stung by a bee.

However, when it comes to being the "guinea pig" for the treatments, Gwyneth admits there's little she won't give a go.

"One of the things we do at Goop.com is we try different things and I’m often the guinea pig for them," she laughed during an appearance on The Late Late Show with James Corden on Tuesday night (19Apr16). "And the more extreme the treatments are or whatever, I seem to be the one having to do it!

"I just think it’s hilarious and, like, insane. I will try anything, pretty much I will try anything."

Gwyneth then detailed exactly what happened when she had the bee sting treatment.

"There’s an ancient remedy for arthritis, inflammation and scar tissue where they sting you with a bee," she said. "And then if you have something like bad scarring then apparently the bee sting has all these amazing properties. The practitioner takes one bee and gets it to sting you in one specific place."

When host James asked if the procedure hurt, Gwyneth replied: "Of course it’s f**king painful. I got stung be a bee!"

However, Gwyneth was informed of the down side of such a treatment when James told her that the bee dies after it has stung you. The actress looked perturbed by this prospect, screwing up her face.

James told Gwyneth at the beginning of the interview that he had tried out some of Gwyneth's beauty products ahead of meeting her. But he was less than impressed with one of her face masks, which he described as very painful.

The mother-of-two giggled at James' response to the product, adding: "First of all, you’re a wimp, because it’s really not that bad. You put on the instant facial and it’s very active - it’s a little tingle, but you can really feel it working."
