Gwyneth Paltrow’s hangover cure

Actress Gwyneth Paltrow recently revealed her foolproof hangover cure, just in time for New Year’s Eve.

The Hollywood star shared recipes, tips and tricks to avoid the dreaded post-holiday hangover.

“Perhaps the least healthy choice, but sometimes unavoidable – at times, just a little of last night’s poison does the trick.” She says on her blog

Gwyneth has admitted in the past to being a “lush” and her love of drink.

When asked ‘Do you drink regularly?’ by a talk show host, Gwyneth replied “A lot…I’m just a lush, basically.”

She also spoke about asking her former alcoholic friend, Robert Downey Jr, for tips about playing an alcoholic in her new movie Country Strong.

“I didn’t understand how you could do something so crazy one night and kind of wreck lives in your wake and wake up and expect to be back to normal.” Gwyneth says.

“So I actually e-mailed Robert Downey Jr. who has been sober for a long time, I was like, explain to me addiction, and he wrote me the most amazing e-mail and he helped me understand it.”

She ended up hitting the sauce herself to get into character.

“You just get really drunk all the time. Which is awesome” She comments.

“At least I did anyway, it’s not very professional. There’s a Bloody Mary at 10am, and keep it going all day.”
