So Gwyneth has been in the news this week because she and Coldplay frontman Chris Martin are breaking up and now she managed to shove her foot in her mouth!! In a recent interview with E! News and Gwyneth tried to say it was so much harder for her to be a Mom than someone with a normal 9-5.
“It’s much harder for me,”- “I feel like I set it up in a way that makes it difficult because… for me, like if I miss a school run, they are like, ‘Where were you?’”
Not to play pitty party but my parents were both working so much I had to walk myself to and from school. Thankfully I get to walk Savannah to school but I’m on air when she comes home which means I don’t normally get to pick her up!
Then she compares herself to people who have 9-5 jobs!
“I think it’s different when you have an office job, because it’s routine and, you know, you can do all the stuff in the morning and then you come home in the evening,” explains Paltrow. “When you’re shooting a movie, they’re like, ‘We need you to go to Wisconsin for two weeks,’ and then you work 14 hours a day and that part of it is very difficult.” - “I think to have a regular job and be a mom is not as, of course there are challenges, but it’s not like being on set.”
Here is my issue with this – yes its hard being away from your family when you’re off making movies you get paid bucket loads!!! So you’re gone for three weeks but you just worked enough to last you a year. I go to work almost everyday like most people. You work a couple weeks, I get a couple weeks a year to go on vacation.
Just smile and say how lucky you are to have this life and sometimes its hard to be away but you’re able to give your kids an amazing life and just be done with it Gwyneth!!
