The famous actor, Gwyneth Paltrow, will cover the February edition of Marie Claire. Also, she has opened herself up about the split from Chris Martin, her estranged hubby. Actually, the reporter of the mag has noted that Paltrow cried during the interview.
Gwyneth said on their current relationship status: “We’ve worked really f*cking hard to get to this point. But we’re very, very close, and it’s so nice. I feel like it’s, in a way, the relationship we were meant to have.”
“There was nothing dramatic or anything. I had built my life on trying to be all things to all people, and I just couldn’t do it anymore, and I really had the sense that I wasn’t allowed to have needs, and I had to prove my specialness or self-worth by doing all this stuff and taking care of everybody else, and I just sort of hit a wall.” – She added.
The Oscar winner didn’t say whether she’s back together with Chris Martin, but it didn’t sound like she is looking for a reconciliation. Even though, he has spent Thanksgiving and Christmas with Gwyneth Paltrow and their children, this week a photo hit the web of him having dinner with Jennifer Lawrence, his on-again/off-again girlfriend. And everybody is wondering in which direction goes their love triangle.
She also talked about the topic of the infamous Mommy Wars, which has started last spring when Gwyneth talked about her problems as a movie star mom.
“I think it’s different when you have an office job, because it’s routine and, you know, you can do all the stuff in the morning and then you come home in the evening. When you’re shooting a movie, they’re like, ‘We need you to go to Wisconsin for two weeks,’ and then you work 14 hours a day and that part of it is very difficult. I think to have a regular job and be a mom is not as, of course there are challenges, but it’s not like being on set.” – She stated.
When she has been asked about the backlash for her quote, Paltrow said: “I think we are all genuinely doing our best. It’s hard to have children and a career, and all some women seem to do is judge other women’s choices. I find that demoralizing and unhelpful. Where is the wisdom coming out of this situation? I don’t see where this is getting us anywhere in terms of a cultural discussion.”
