Gwyneth Paltrow hosted a diamond auction in New York last week to raise money for Hope Lodge, an American Cancer Society initiative providing free housing for adults with cancer.

The actress described the charity as “a really good cause” — her own father died from throat cancer in 2002. “My life has been affected by cancer in so many different ways.”

“When my father had cancer, he found it so isolating. It’s very difficult to empathise with it if you haven’t gone through it.”

Paltrow braved icy weather and a cold to host the event, as it had “been planned for a long time… I couldn’t take a sick day.”
