Gwyneth Paltrow has suggested during an interview with the New York Times that she popularized the practice of wearing a face mask and claimed to be "one of the first" to contract COVID-19.

The 48-year-old actor turned wellness-guru posted a selfie to Instagram wearing a face mask in February 2020, about one month before many countries began to impose travel restrictions as the virus began to spread rapidly. And when asked about wearing a mask by the Times, she said: "This is a familiar pattern in my life. I do something early, everyone is like, 'What is she doing? She's insane.' And then it's adopted by the culture."

She continued: "I had to take this trip to France when it was all kicking off. I wore it on the plane, but I didn't wear it to the function that I was going to, and actually ended up getting Covid and coming home, and being one of the first people that I had heard of to have it."

Last week in a personal essay posted on her Goop website, Paltrow said that she has been experiencing long-term COVID-19 symptoms including ongoing fatigue, brain fog, and inflammation.

"I had COVID-19 early on, and it left me with some long-tail fatigue and brain fog. In January, I had some tests done that showed really high levels of inflammation in my body," she wrote before saying that she has adopted a combination of intermittent fasting and a plant-based ketogenic diet to curb the symptoms.

"When you look at the numbers almost every day, either breaks a record or ties a record of cases, to have a baseline of between one and 200,000 cases a day is extraordinary. When you look at the number of deaths they have between 1,000 and 2,000, we now over 90,000 hospitalizations, the total of the outbreak is over a quarter of a million deaths, 266,000 deaths. And over 13 million cases.

She continued: "Everything I'm doing feels good, like a gift to my body. I have energy, I'm working out in the mornings, and I'm doing an infrared sauna as often as I can, all in service of healing."

In 2018 during an interview with the Wall Street Journal, Paltrow made similar comments claiming to have popularized yoga. "I remember when I started doing yoga and people were like, 'What is yoga? She's a witch. She's a freak,'" she said.

"Forgive me if this comes out wrong, but I went to do a yoga class in L.A. recently and the 22-year-old girl behind the counter was like, 'Have you ever done yoga before?' And literally I turned to my friend, and I was like, 'You have this job because I've done yoga before.'"
