London: Gwyneth Paltrow doesn`t eat traditional British Christmas cake because she can`t stand the thought of consuming a treat cooked months before.

The "Shakespeare in Love" star was introduced to the festive delicacy - which many bakers leave to mature for up to a year - by her Coldplay rocker husband Chris Martin, reports

"Brits have this Christmas cake, which sounds fine. Except they make it in, like, August. Seriously, you`re going to eat something you made in August? No," she said.
