Gwyneth Paltrow is obsessive about germs

London: Gwyneth Paltrow says she has got an Obsessive Compulsive Disorder after reading about how many germs there are in public places.

The 38-year-old actress, who stars in the new epidemic thriller `Contagion` as a woman who contracts a deadly disease, and she admits the storyline had a worsening effect
on her fear of germs, a website reported.

"There was actually a New York Observer article – they sent a microbiologist out in New York City to swab surfaces, like a clean glass in a five star restaurant, the subway, handles, and it was so disturbing what they found, and since that article I`ve been a hand washer. So this movie didn`t make me any worse, but it was already a little bit borderline," Paltrow said.

The actress, who runs the website Goop about healthy and ethical eating, had earlier said that she uses a handset which she plugs into her cell phone in order to minimise radiation.

"A handset cuts down on cell phone radiation. I use it for my Blackberry calls," Paltrow added.
