Gwyneth Paltrow Told To 'Put On Weight' To Improve Her Image

Actress and green juice advocate Gwyneth Paltrow has been urged to gain weight by those close to her in order to improve her public image.

Gwyneth Paltrow Told To 'Put On Weight' To Improve Her Image

The 41-year-old is being put under pressure to do something "big" like "gain weight for a Bridget Jones style film role" to win back the public after her ongoing spat with Vanity Fair.

An insider told RadarOnline that between recent negative press and pretty poor ticket sells for her latest blockbuster Thank You For Sharing, the actress needs to make a change - and fast.

The ruck between Gwynnie and Vanity Fair started when the glossy mag revealed its intention to publish an "epic takedown" of the actress after she allegedly refused to cooperate with a cover story.

"She has to fix this problem before she commits to more work," the source told RadarOnline. "There is a significant image problem at work and Gwyneth doesn't want to have another baby to fix it."

It seems Gwyn has few other options to help her damaged rep.

"It looks like she will have to undergo either some weight gain for a role that wins her Bridget Jones-style sympathy or perhaps do a play on Broadway or in London that will allow her to reconnect with her core fans," the source said.
