Gwyneth Paltrow and her shiny legs took a seat on ‘Chelsea Lately‘ Monday night to promote her new film ‘Country Strong‘ as part of Chelsea Handler’s ‘Big Interview Special.’

After discussing Paltrow’s practically nonexistent workout routine for the movie (in which she gained 20 lbs), Handler asked, “Do you drink regularly?” A smiley Paltrow confessed, “A lot, yeah.”

She continued, “red wine is my favorite, but I’ll drink white, rosé…Guinness is my favorite beer. I like a dirty vodka martini. I’m just a lush, basically.”

In ‘Country Strong’ Paltrow plays a drug and alcohol-abusing country singer seeking to resurrect her career. She said she reached out to her ‘Iron Man‘ co-star – and former addict – Robert Downey Jr. for advice on how to tackle the role. “He wrote me the most amazing email, and it really helped me understand it,” she explained.

Paltrow also dished on daughter Apple’s odd accent affectations and why she feels she’s in a healthy emotional state to win another Oscar. Watch the interview below:
