Gwyneth Paltrow has joked that her sapphire engagement ring is so big it could be inserted into the vagina and double as a Yoni egg.
During an interview with Stephen Colbert on Thursday (Jan. 25) Paltrow, 45, talked about how the massive rock her new fiancé, Brad Falchuk gave her could come in handy in more ways than one.
"Could that be used as a Yoni egg? It's so huge!" Stephen quipped.
"Hell, yeah!" Paltrow replied.
ICYMI, Yoni eggs (as seen above) are egg-shaped semiprecious stones that get inserted inside the vagina and apparently help with strengthening the muscles of the pelvis... kinda like kegel exercises. The light-hearted comments were made because Gwyneth's lifestyle website, GOOP has promoted the eggs (Yoni = Sanskrit word for female genitalia) before.
Now, to be clear, putting engagement rings up one's vagina is absolutely a bad idea, but if we're judging from some of the kooky things we've seen on GOOP -- 18k gold dumbbells for $125,000, a toothpaste squeezer for $244, deconstructed matchsticks for $16, recommending bra-burning as a "cleansing ritual" to rid oneself of ex-boyfriend energy, peppermint "sex bark" to make you horny, and the time they wanted you to buy a $15,000 24-karat gold dildo -- we wouldn't be surprised if the actress was for real. But she was joking.
However, according when GOOP were seriously promoting the egg insertions they said it was because women have been using stone eggs for thousands of years as a way to "cultivate sexual energy, clear chi pathways in the body, intensify femininity, and invigorate our life force." Many doctors did not agree with this information when it was published, but Gwyn and her team defended their choice to write about the practice.
Aside from alternative vaginal health, other topics were discussed on Colbert's show.
Gwyneth was there to talk about the GOOP's new magazine and their "Sex And Love" issue. She also opened up about her own romantic history and described her relationship with former husband Chris Martin now that she's engaged again. The Oscar-winner and her Coldplay frontman ex "consciously uncoupled" in 2014 but have managed to stay close.
"He's really like my brother,'' Gwyn said on the talk show. "We're very familial. It's nice, it's great."
Colbert wondered if perhaps Gwynie and her ex -- who have two children together, Apple, 13, and Moses, 11 -- were somehow "more evolved" than the rest of us because of the way they've handled their breakup, but the actress insisted otherwise.
"Definitely not,'' she said. "No, but divorce is terrible. It was really painful. It was really hard, and I think we really genuinely wanted our kids to be as unscathed as possible. And we thought, if we could really maintain the family even though we weren't a couple, that was kind of the goal. So that's what we've tried to do."
At this point we wouldn't be surprised if Coldplay is the wedding band.
