Now that she’s consciously uncoupled from Chris Martin because divorce is what you, the little people, do (I bet you don’t even buy each other uncoupling gifts, you unwashed beggar’s bazaar.) Gwyneth Paltrow will now transcendentally acquit herself of acting and don’t say quit or she’ll stab you with her gilded pheasant deboning knife. E! News report:
The 41-year-old Hollywood A-lister also explained how it’s trickier to maintain her film career now that her children are getting older.
“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?’ I don’t like to be the lead so I don’t [have] to work every day, you know, I have little things that I like and obviously I want it to be good and challenging and interesting and be with good people and that kind of thing.”
She added, “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. 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.”
Just so we’re all clear, that was Gwyneth Paltrow literally saying her life as an actress is much harder than mothers who work 9 to 5 with the constant threat of unemployment and/or homelessness looming over their heads because one time she had to go to Wisconsin for two weeks then took the rest of the year off. Have you been to Wisconsin? All the cheese there is American. AMERICAN.
