Gwyneth Paltrow is turning the big 50, and in honor, she’s posing in just gold body paint. I can’t make this stuff up, kids.

The actress and wellness champion posed wearing just gold body paint to celebrate her big day and shared the photos and some stories to the goop Instagram on Tuesday (Sept. 27).

“I feel so good turning 50, and this is about expressing that sense of energy and optimism that I’m experiencing,” Paltrow stated. “It’s more about the female gaze and just a sense of fun.”

She added that she’s proud of her age. Why not? She looks great. “I think aging is actually a beautiful thing. We just need to open our perceptions,” she said. “As you become more yourself, in integrity, your life really opens up.”
