She is one of the most health conscious Hollywood celebs, but actress Gwyneth Paltrow (above) is suffering from a brittle-bone disease, osteopenia, common in elderly women.



The 37-year-old actress is known for her extreme health regimes and the punishing diets may have led to her being diagnosed with the condition. The problem was diagnosed in a bone scan after she suffered a leg fracture. In her Internet newsletter, she said, “My doctors tested my vitamin D levels, which turned out to be the lowest thing they had ever seen (not a good thing).”
