Smoking helped Gwyneth Paltrow relax
Gwyneth Paltrow still craves cigarettes – 6 years after giving them up.

The actress stopped smoking when she fell pregnant with daughter Apple in 2003.

But she has vowed to start puffing away again again once her kids have grown up.

‘I miss it,’ Gwyneth, 36, tells Elle. ‘The last cigarette I smoked was the day I found out I was pregnant. I had to sit down and smoke one final cigarette.

‘It's such a beautiful thing. I'm so pissed off it gives you cancer. Cigarettes were my upper, they were my downer. I would think with them, write with them. I just love them so much.

‘But then, once you have children, if you've witnessed a death like I did with my father, you just can't. But I've decided that when I'm about 70 I'm going to start smoking again. Why not? I can't wait!’

Gwyn has Apple, 4, and Moses, 2, with husband Chris Martin, 31.
