LOS ANGELES - Gwyneth Paltrow feels like a ‘’21-year-old’’ now she is planning her wedding.

The ‘Goop’ founder can’t wait to marry her fiancé Brad Falchuk and is excited about ‘’everything’’ to do with her big day. She said: ‘’I’m excited about everything! I’ve never had a wedding before. So even though I’m 45, I sort of feel like a 21-year-old.’’ And the 45-year-old actress is enjoying getting her friends involved in the planning too.

She told People magazine: ‘’We haven’t really started making any formal plans [but] it’s kind of fun to talk about with my girlfriends. They send me pictures of dresses - they’re as excited about it as I am. It’s pretty cute.’’

Meanwhile, Gwyneth previously admitted she doesn’t imagine she’ll have a ‘’big’’ wedding with Brad and instead would prefer a low-key ceremony.

She said: ‘’I think I’m [too] old to have a big wedding and a big ole white dress and all that. I gotta dial it back.’’

Despite her marriage looming, Gwyneth - who has Apple, 13, and Moses, 11, with her ex-husband Chris Martin - has confessed she has a fear of intimacy.

She explained: ‘’It’s a life-long project. I think that there are certain people who have a really hard time with intimacy. I always say, I’m a good sister. I’m a good daughter. I’m a good girlfriend. I’m a good mother. That romantic slice of the pie chart of my life has always been where I find my deepest work ... I just am trying to towards intimacy instead of being scared of it and I’m really lucky that I found a partner that’s patient and loves me and is willing to help me with my process.’’
