In recent years Gwyneth Paltrow has become known for constantly working out and eating healthy, but it turns out she may be even more obsessive when it comes to looking young. In a recent interview with Harper’s Bazaar, the 40-year-old actress admitted to undergoing regular laser treatments, called Thermage.

“‘I have a great dermatologist in L.A. who gave me this amazing laser the last time I was there,’ Gwyneth told the magazine. ‘It’s called Thermage. It’s not invasive. I went out to dinner right afterward and I didn’t look crazy, but it’s quite painful. It feels like someone’s smacking your face with a rubber band that has an electric shock in it. But I would do it again, because I feel like it took five years off my face.’”

Even more surprising is the fact that Gwyneth will never say never to plastic surgery, but she won’t be getting Botox anytime soon.

“I would be scared to go under the knife, but you know, talk to me when I’m 50. I’ll try anything. Except I won’t do Botox again, because I looked crazy. I looked like Joan Rivers!”

Gwyneth also confessed to exfoliating four times a week and getting regular chemical peels to keep her skin looking fresh. The one aging habit she can’t seem to kick? Smoking.

“I smoke once a week, on Saturday night.”
