Gwyneth Paltrow has said she is more interested in "supporting-size parts" now - so she can spend more time with her children.

The Contagion actress and her Coldplay frontman husband Chris Martin are parents to Apple, seven, and Moses, five, and Gwyneth doesn't want to miss any part of their growing up.

She told the Daily Mirror: "I just had the summer off and with them and now they're back to school again. Then what I'll do is look for more interesting supporting-size parts. I haven't starred in a movie since I had my daughter seven years ago because it's too much. I would never see them and there's no point.

"So, if I get a good supporting part, it either means I do a few weeks of work and then I'm done, or it's two days this week, one day next week and so on. That's how I plan it."

Gwyneth also revealed her acclaimed all-singing, all-dancing role in Glee had given people a glimpse of the real her.

"I think people were happy to see me as I really am - the silly, singing and dancing side. That's what I'm like with my kids.

"I felt like I'd never had parts that really showed that side of myself, so it's been fun."

Taurus:

A home improvement project will be stalled or called off altogether. The situation is frustrating, but it can't be helped. Instead of dwelling on your disappointment, turn your attention to more rewarding pursuits. Working on an unusual creative project fills you with excitement. Don't show the fruits of your labour to anyone just now. You'll go through several drafts before you're happy with the result. At that point, you can show off your handiwork. Prepare to receive warm praise for your exceptional talent.More
