Maybe she’s born with it. Or maybe a trainer whipped her into shape.

After giving birth to daughter Apple in 2004, Gwyneth Paltrow got back in shape quickly. But after having son Moses two years later, she had trouble losing the baby weight.

Enter Tracy Anderson. Without bothering to butter her up, Anderson quickly went to work on the Oscar winner.

“She was this force from the second I met her,” Paltrow, 40, tells Redbook in its January issue, on newsstands Dec. 18.

“She pulled my pants off. I’ll never forget it. She was like, ‘Oh, my God, wow, I just am so surprised, because you look so good in clothes. I wasn’t expecting this.’ ”
