London: Hollywood star Gwyneth Paltrow admits wearing short-shorts at the age of 37 is "ridiculous" but she can only do it thanks to her fitness and diet regime.
The actress, who has children Apple, five and Moses, four, with Coldplay singer Chris Martin, admits she has to work hard to maintain her trim physique, but her friend Tracy Anderson`s dance workout helps her get into shape, Contactmusic reported.
"This 26-minute long video was an amazing start for getting the butt and legs I had always hoped for. This regime got me into the shape of my life and I continue to return to it when I have a specific event so that I can do ridiculous things like be a 37-year-old mother-of-two and wear shorts," Paltrow said.
Writing in her GOOP newsletter, Paltrow also claims she has to diet in short spurts to get good results.
"To really get in line, I follow her strict diet for five days to lose my extra winter weight. Now, I am not a good dieter and I cannot every do it for long - only when there is a goal in sight, which there was in this case," the actress said.
