The actress, 49, shared a black-and-white photography of herself jumping while wearing a bikini on Instagram Thursday.
In the caption of her post, the Iron Man star wrote, “Musings on a milestone,” and directed her followers to a link in her bio to her Goop blogwhere she spoke candidly about her thoughts on turning 50 next week.
