Paltrow a "lush"

Gwyneth Paltrow admits to liking a drink or two.

The Oscar winning actress was on American talk show Chelsea Lately with Chelsea Handler to promote her new film, Country Strong.

In the film Paltrow plays Kelly Canter, a forgotten country singer  with an alcohol problem.
The 38-year-old actress said she called her "Iron Man " co-star Robert Downey Jr to ask him for tips on how to portray somebody with an addiction, since the actor had a very public battle with drink and drugs in the past.

However Paltrow admitted she too likes a drink, "red wine, but I'll drink white, rose," said the mum of two , "Guinness is my favourite beer, I like a dirty vodka martini. I'm just a lush, basically. I'll do whatever."

The actress also admitted feeling uncomfortable about putting on 20lbs for Country Strong , and said that she occasionally worked out in the gym secretely.
