Gwyneth Paltrow's smoking years

Gwyneth Paltrow - who now lives in the UK with Coldplay star husband Chris Martin - says the best thing about growing up in New York was the "underage smoking"

Gwyneth Paltrow says the best thing about growing up in New York was the "underage smoking".

The 'Iron Man' actress - who now lives in London with her British musician husband Chris Martin and their two children, Apple and Moses - used to puff on cigarettes throughout her teenage years.

Gwyneth - who attended a private girls' school in the Big Apple - said: "What I really liked about New York was the underage smoking on stoops of brownstones, going to museums, the seasons and how great a school The Spence School was."

The Oscar winner recently revealed she wasn't sure whether she would be able to return to the acting industry after giving birth to her children.

She said: "I really did not know if there would be a place for me any more. Hollywood is pretty cutthroat, and everybody's got a short memory and there's always somebody younger or hotter or prettier, or whatever."
