Gwyneth Paltrow is Not So Perfect: ‘Some Days I Just Think I Am Failing’
The mother of two recently sat down for an interview with Viva Magazine where she talked about her personal and professional struggles and failures.
“Some days I just think I am failing everywhere. Like today, I was making lunch and saying to myself, ‘This lunch is so bad,’ throwing pasta in the lunch bag, saying, ‘Get in the car,’ I was losing my cool,” she said.
“I think it’s very hard to try to find the right balance, and I think we all aspire to that balance, but it’s easier said than done. It’s just a matter of trying your best each day and not being too hard on yourself about things,” she explained.
Paltrow also took the opportunity to clarify a statement she made months ago when she hinted that mothers have a more difficult job compared to actors, the Daily Mail reported.
“I think when you are a working mother it is always very difficult. In fact, it’s difficult if you are a mother anyway even if you are not working. It’s the demand, the responsibility and the love – it’s a lot and trying to balance a career with it makes it hard. I have a lot of respect for women who try to do both things, because I really struggle,” she explained.
See, Gwyneth Paltrow is really just like us.
