Gwyneth Paltrow talks 'true sexuality,' flashes her enviable abs

Gwyneth Paltrow Has Sex ?

Gwyneth Paltrow gave quite the sex talk.

"We have this idea that you can't be a mother and a businesswoman and like to have sex! How is an intelligent woman a sexual being?" the 43-year-old star tells Self magazine. "It's really hard to integrate those things. Like, 'Gwyneth has sex? Really?' It doesn't seem to go together."

Paltrow -- who looks sensational on the cover of the fitness magazine -- adds, "But I think it's important, as mothers and as women contributing to society in whatever way we each are, that our true sexuality doesn't get lost or put aside."

The Iron Man actress is currently dating TV producer Brad Falchuk, but, for the most part, has kept their relationship out of the public eye. Paltrow did, however, escort Falchuk to the premiere of his show, Scream Queens, in September, and was also spotted on a romantic vacation in Mexico with him earlier this year.
