Gwyneth Paltrow: I’ve embraced suffering
Published 25/04/2013 | 10:32
Gwyneth Paltrow reveals she has suffered as much as anyone else, discusses why she thinks Jay-Z is such an “incredible person” and discounts rumours her kids are on restrictive diets.
The actress shares eight-year-old daughter Apple and seven-year-old son Moses with Coldplay star Chris Martin.
Gwyneth recently opened up about suffering a life-threatening miscarriage with her third child.
She believes all of the painful experiences she lived through allowed for positive growth.
“People have this perception that I have this really lucky life, which is very true, but I've had a lot more suffering in my personal life than anyone would ever have any idea about, which I embrace as part of my path. That was just one of the difficult things I had gone through,” Gwyneth told Extra.
Gwyneth is sometimes lambasted for her candour and the subjects she writes about on her lifestyle website GOOP are not always taken kindly.
She recently claimed her family are all intolerant of certain foods so she restricts the amount of carbohydrate her children intake.
Her children’s bathing suit designs have been accused by some critics as being too sexual for little girls.
Gwyneth is annoyed by how these issues have been misinterpreted by the media.
“No, that's a total lie! Kids live on carbs. I think someone misconstrued the fact that my son is allergic to gluten,” she declared.
“All kids wear bathing suits, and if you find it sexual, you have a problem!”
Gwyneth and her husband Chris have developed an amazing friendship with Jay-Z and his wife Beyoncé Knowles.
The thespian is continuously inspired by Jay-Z’s evolution.
“He is a person who, with every year, gets more integrated and more wise, and more whole as a person,” Gwyneth said.
“He has really mastered the art of being his own being. He’s an incredible person.”
Gwyneth’s new action thriller Iron Man 3, which also stars Robert Downey Jr., will be released in US theatres next month.
