Gwyneth Paltrow secretly battled pneumonia after a summer (08) break, because she tired herself out tending to guests at her vacation home in New York.
The actress, husband Chris Martin and their children Apple and Moses decamped to Amagansett in the trendy Hamptons for the season, where they planned to relax and entertain family and friends, including pop star Madonna.
But Paltrow found herself working more than ever, and the effort left her sick.
She says, "It's like running an inn, in a way. We have a lot of guests, which is fantastic, but sometimes I feel so tired. At the end of the summer I got pneumonia. I think I just overextended myself."
