London: Actress Gwyneth Paltrow is facing weight problem after agreeing to play alcoholic singer Lisa Canter in a new movie.

Contactmusic.com reports that the 38-year-old actress was told she can`t follow her usual exercise regime for her role in "Country Strong".

"At first I was a bit panicked about it, so I`d start working out a little bit. A lot of people lie the other way and say, `Yeah, I work out five times a week,` when they actually don`t, whereas I was saying, `No, no. I didn`t work out,` when actually I was on the treadmill," she said.

"It was then that I was like, `Right, I have got to stop.` But it wasn`t until we were finishing the movie that my body completely fell apart. My body was doing OK right up until the end. Then it just started falling to pieces, so now I am left with bulging problems," she added.
