Gwyneth Paltrow: “A Part Of Me Would Love To Have Another”

Sporting a Diane von Furstenberg jumpsuit with Fred Leighton earrings and Vhernier bracelets, Gwyneth Paltrow looks lovely on October’s cover of InStyle. In the interview, the Academy Award-winning actress opens up about turning 40 later this month, her marriage to Chris Martin, and their two kids Apple, 8, and Moses, 6.

On her kids: “When Apple was born, she had the hugest blue eyes. I looked into them, and she was looking at me, and I felt like, You are here to teach me everything. After [Moses] was born I had postpartum depression. It was a difficult time, and because of that I believe I have an extra empathy for him, and he for me.”

On having another child: “My brain says, ‘Oh, I think I’m done, the kids are so big now, and I don’t want to go back to changing diapers.’ But a part of me would love to have another. Of course, I’m old now!”

On the differences between her and Chris: “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 temperanemt that goes with someone who is creative can be challenging. I focus more on understanding than being understood.”

On only allowing her kids to watch TV in foreign languages: “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.”

On her diet: “I was very strict for a while. I was macrobiotic for a couple of years, then I got pregnant and just ate ice cream. What I’ve learned is 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. I [indulge] but I don’t like sweets. My indulging is a fresh baguette with cheese and a glass of red wine or French fries and fried zucchini. Or a turkey burger.”

      Completely agree. It’s like she wants us to know without the slightest doubt that she is more refined, smarter and a better parent than any one of us could ever dream to be. Pretentious is a gross understatement.

    I think letting your kids watch only foreign language cartoons is a genius idea, especially because hers go to French school
