Gwyneth Loses The Short Skirts And Hooker Heels For Au Naturel 'GQ' Shoot

As we've been noting throughout Gwyneth Paltrow's incredibly successful campaign to rack up attention during her Iron Man press tour, her wardrobe has been just this side of trampy. In the last few weeks, transparent dresses (but they're designer!), S&M shoes (eccentric!), and clavicle accented jumpsuits have all been pulled out of the twice-retired actress' bag of tricks. But now that we've seen just what lies inside the June issue of British GQ, we think this sexy train has reached its final destination. Yes, Gwyneth has dropped trou, but listening to her tell it, it's just not that big of a deal, okay?

Paltrow states she isn't trying to court controversy with the new photo, insisting it's just an innocent shot. The mother-of-two says, "I'm not going out without my knickers, and I'm not getting drunk and I'm not on my eighth husband."



While we do appreciate her usage of "knickers" in a British glossy, we feel obligated to point out that her statement just isn't entirely true.

While Gwyneth does admittedly look far sexier than we've ever seen her, and sure, a thirtysomething actress posing nude is not as big of a deal as it is when her much younger counterparts like Lindsay Lohan and Miley Cyrus do it, we're still a bit confused by her repeated public attacks on those of us who tend to enjoy a bit of drink now and then: "I think it's gross. I really don't like drunk women...I think they're the idiot people and I'm the normal person." But Gwyneth, aren't we forgetting those two separate occasions when you were not only spotted sipping Grandpa's lemonade, but drinking it while pregnant? You know, glass houses and all.
