Gwyneth Paltrow tells the August issue of Vogue that her favorite food is French fries.

No wonder the writer notes she spends two hours a day working out.

Paltrow, 37, appears in the mag's annual age issue, where she spends a few days cooking with the writer to promote her new cookbook (out April 2011), My Father’s Daughter. (Their conversation turns awkward when he asks if she’d ever have plastic surgery; the interviewer is then uninvited to Paltrow's cover shoot later.)

Paltrow's words of culinary advice: "Invest in what's real. Clean as you go. Drink while you cook. Make it fun. It doesn't have to be complicated. It will be what it will be."

The author writes that Paltrow has the sharpest knives he's ever seen, a deep-fryer in her kitchen and she has scheduled phone calls with her L.A.-based therapist while she’s staying in her London house.

Paltrow cites her father, Bruce, for inspiring her love of cooking.

"I always feel closest to my father, who was the love of my life until his death in 2002, when I am in the kitchen,” she writes in the tome. "I can still hear him over my shoulder, heckling me, telling me to be careful with my knife, moaning with pleasure over a bite of something in only the way a Jew from Long Island can, his shoulders doing most of the talking. I will never forget how concentrated he looked in the kitchen."
