After Jake described Gwyneth as “an Internet-savvy, award-winning, lifestyle guru,” the Iron Man actress took the stage and paid tribute to her husband Chris Martin and their two children, Apple, 6, and Moses, 4.
“I had my kids and everything really changed for me, so I feel so honored that you are honoring me because I feel like I have shifted focus so much,” Gwyneth said, addressing the audience.
“I have this really great guy, and these two great kids, and I feel like that was all a process of getting me to where I am.
“I am a woman in Hollywood and I am a mother in Hollywood and I come from a woman in Hollywood, my mother Blythe,” she said, referring to her mother, actress Blythe Danner. “I think that she did such a good job teaching me how to be a woman in Hollywood, teaching me god values, and I hope to pass that on to my kids.”
