Gwyneth Paltrow 'looks youthful thanks to sex'

Gwyneth Paltrow has claimed her youthful looks are down to the healthy sex life she enjoyed with her husband.

The Hollywood star - who is married to Coldplay frontman Chris Martin - explained her activities between the sheets is one of the main reasons she boasts such an envious physique. 

Speaking to US Weekly, the beauty said it is the basic things in life that help her to look so good, stating: "Like exercise and self-discovery. Looking at life as an opening and an adventure - and love and sex."

Paltrow will turn 41 this year - but getting through the condom packets with her famous hubby appears to be working wonders to keep her looking slim and healthy. 

Because of her family commitments, the actress can only make around one film a year now - but said she has realised that all that matters is the love you have for the people who love you back.
