Gwyneth Paltrow: I wear male scent

Gwyneth Paltrow doesn't worry about whether a fragrance is for men or women; if she likes it she'll wear it.

The Hollywood star is the face of Boss Nuit Pour Femme and other perfumes from the company are among her favourites. She doesn't believe in sticking to the rules though, so will wear any fragrance she likes.

"When I'm in the mood for a fresh fragrance, Boss Jour is amazing - it's bright and fresh and the citrus makes it really energising. For the evening? Sometimes I'll even wear the Boss men's fragrance," she told the latest edition of British magazine Cosmopolitan.

The 40-year-old actress often wears a lot of make-up for work, so in her downtime she takes it easy. Mascara is one of her essentials and her favourite is by Max Factor, with the star also smudging Stila cream blushes on her cheeks.

Surgery-wise, Gwyneth worries people are after quick fixes and not thinking about the lasting effects.

"I don't like Botox. I think on some faces it works, but it's when you can really see it that it starts to look fake," she explained. "I think people look at tiny patches of their face and try to fix everything - they've lost the plot!"

The actress has previously admitted succumbing to the skin-smoothing injections, although she has vowed never to have them again because they made her look "crazy".

Gwyneth is renowned for eating healthily and exercising a great deal. When it comes to other areas of life she isn't quite so obsessive though.

"We're human beings and the sun is the sun - how can it be bad for you?" she mused. "I think we should all get sun and fresh air. I don't think anything that is natural can be bad for you - it's really good to have at least 15 minutes of sun a day."
