Goop Scoop

The first 2009 installment of GOOP, Gwyneth Paltrow's lifestyle e-newsletter, is out today, and Gwynnie has started out the new year by pointing out that your butt is too big.

Just like us plebs, Gwyneth likes to begin the new year by obsessing about what we can "improve, learn, be more disciplined about," and of course, "cut out of our diets." Last year, the svelte star had a little help getting rid of her "saddlebags and post-pregnancy Shar-Pei-like stomach" from trainer Tracy Anderson. As Anderson is currently on tour with Madonna, she has been working with Gwyneth via video chat, and one such video is posted on the latest installment. Gwyneth highly recommends Anderson's Dance Aerobics DVD for the rest of us, but it's hard to get motivated to "completely change the shape of your butt" without a personalized message from your trainer praising your "fabulous duck and polenta" and gushing, "I just dream about your cooking!"
