Gwyneth Paltrow is getting plain-spoken.

The Avengers: Infinity War actress may just got married for the second time and preparing to start her life with new husband, American Horror Story producer Brad Falchuk. Meanwhile, Gwyneth revealed in an Instagram post that she is experiencing perimenopausal symptoms at the age of 46.

“I think when you get into perimenopause, you notice a lot of changes,” she said. “I can feel the hormonal shifts happening, the sweating, the moods. You know, you’re just, like, all of a sudden furious for no reason.”

So why is Gwyneth letting fans know about the changes she’s experiencing?

“I think menopause gets a really bad rap and needs a bit of a rebranding. I remember when my mother went through menopause, and it was, like, such a big deal. I think there was grief around it for her and all of these emotions. I don’t think we have in our society a great example of an aspirational menopausal woman.”

You’re doing a great job, Gwyneth!
