Recently, Gwyneth Paltrow made a rare confession regarding her parenting on The Ellen Show. The said confession involves Gwyneth Paltrow’s daughter, Apple. According to the Goop CEO, she failed as a mother at a particular time.
Apart from a notable acting career, Gwyneth Paltrow is a successful businesswoman as well
While she won an Oscar for Shakespeare in Love, Paltrow has numerous super-hit films to her name. For example, Se7en, Iron Man, Emma, The Talented Mr. Ripley, and The Royal Tenenbaums. Recently, she starred in a hit Netflix series, The Politician. Not only that, Gwyneth Paltrow has established a successful web-based company, Goop. Started as a newsletter, Goop has expanded into e-commerce where they launch pop-up stores, collaborated with brands and focus on wellness.
However, the center of attention are Gwyneth Paltrow’s daughter and son
Gwyneth Paltrow’s daughter, Apple and son, Moses are the real stars of her life. When she got married to Coldplay’s lead singer, Chris Martin in 2003, she was pregnant with her first child. After the birth of Gwyneth Paltrow’s daughter, she cut down on work to focus on motherhood.
On The Ellen Show, she admitted to losing her cool on her daughter on time
Recently, Gwyneth Paltrow’s daughter started driving and got a learner’s permit. While talking to the guest host, John Legend, she said:
“The first time, I failed as a mother because she went through a red light and I kind of yelled at her and then she started crying. It was just terrible and I felt so bad. So then I was just like, OK, you know what? I’m just gonna be chill and I’m gonna just pretend that she is amazing. You know what? She is now an amazing driver. I have learned from my mistakes.”
Furthermore, she told that she has a bit of road rage and sometimes needs a place where she can yell without anyone hearing her. Similarly, she sees these traits in her daughter as well.
Although it does not sound like a parenting failure as such, it is nice to see a celebrity admitting her mistakes. After all, they are also humans.
