Like most working mothers Gwyneth Paltrow is often conflicted about being away from her children. But the Country Strong actress says now that kids Apple, 6 and Moses, 4, are older they’re better able to cope with her absences.
“To be honest, I think my son is a bit young for me to be away,” Gwyneth admitted. “I really feel like during the first five years of a child’s life it’s really important to be there as much as you can. [But] my children are self-sufficient. They really have an inner life and they know what they want and they know who they are. I think that it’s OK to work.”
“I just feel lucky that I don’t have to do every day. When I’m gone, I’m really gone. When I’m home, I’m really home. That’s the way it works in our house.”
