Gwyneth Paltrow has revealed that she only allows her eight-year-old daughter, Apple, and six-year-old son Moses, to watch TV in French or Spanish. Why? Cause she’s fancy, and she can.
Speaking to InStyle magazine, the mother-of-two said Apple was ‘cross’ because “I only let them watch TV in French or Spanish. When I’m in France, I go to [Boulevard] Beaumarchais and buy all their cartoons.”
What I’ve learned is that I want to enjoy my life, and food is a big part of it. I love to cook and feed people. I cook every day.
‘My indulging is a fresh baguette with cheese and a glass of red wine or french fries and fried zucchini. Or a turkey burger.’
During the interview, which was conducted by designer Diane von Furstenberg, the Oscar-winner also touched on her marriage to Chris Martin and hinted why it is still going strong after nine years.
She credited their friendship as the ‘easiest’ thing between them, saying they laugh a lot and share the same taste in music, before bravely discussing the hardships too.
Highlighting their differences, Gwyneth said: ‘Probably our artistic temperaments. Artists are sensitive; there are ups and downs mood-wise.
Musicians need a certain gravitas and focus in order to write. The temperament that goes with someone who is creative can be challenging.’
She added: ‘I focus more on understanding than being understood.’
And it seems Gwyneth may even let off a little steam in the therapist’s office, as when the blonde was asked why she continues to work so hard having already achieved such a high level of success, it was unclear if she was joking when she quipped: ‘You can call my shrink on that one.’
She continued: ‘The positive thing… is curiosity and momentum. The negative is a need to validate myself or feel special.’
Last week, the fashionista was crowned People magazine’s World’s Best Dressed Woman, while Emma Stone won Best Red Carpet Style and Kate Middleton was crowned with Best Classic Style.
Still a force on the silver screen, Gwyneth is currently reprising her role as Virginia ‘Pepper’ Potts opposite Robert Downey Jr for the Iron Man sequel, as well as filming Pablo Picasso biopic 33 días.
I think I’m going to start doing that with my kids. See how that goes over.
