Ms Paltrow has done some pretty weird things for wellness. Which of these are true?

*She hasn’t eaten meat in 20 years after advice from Leonardo DiCaprio
*She rubs a mixture called Prtty Peaushun over her body for red-carpet glow
*She once said she’d “rather smoke crack than eat cheese from a can”
*She loves colon cleanses
*She doesn’t eat dairy, eggs, sugar, wheat, potatoes, gluten and soy
*She trains five days a week, two hours a day
*She smokes one American Spirit cigarette every week, Saturday night
*She hates antibiotics but sprays silver from a can to fight bacteria
*She once did a juice diet that had her hallucinating after 10 days
*She’s injected bee venom into her skin to treat bruises
*She’s had cupping, with heated glass cups, pressed into her skin to suck out stress
*She’s a fan of the painful Rs 4 lakh face ironing, which uses radio waves to boost collagen
*She’s never had plastic surgery
*She’s paid approximately Rs 25,000 for a facial in London
*She owns 50 perfume bottles

All points have been reported as true, alas. Ms Paltrow is really an oddball.
