Gwyneth Paltrow admits to working mum guilt

The Iron Man actress reveals she cries in her trailer when she’s away from her children

Being a highly paid Hollywood actress, a mum to two beautiful children and happily married to Coldplay frontman Chris Martin, you’d think that Gwyneth Paltrow had plenty to smile about. However, the 37-year-old star has revealed that she’s often reduced to tears in her trailer when she’s away from her two children Apple, 5, and Moses, 4.


“Some days you think, ‘Oh my god. They’re in the bath right now and I’m not there.’ And I would cry in my trailer,” she told the Telegraph.

However, during her sad times she would remind herself why she is carrying on acting after taking a career break after having her children. “It was very important to me because I realised it’s OK for me to want to express this part of myself and it’s why I’m here, you know?”
