Gwyneth Paltrow Battled Postpartum Depression

Gwyneth Paltrow Battled Postpartum Depression

Gwyneth Paltrow opens up about her postpartum depression in the May 2008 cover of Vogue.

“You know, I had postnatal depression after [my second child] Moses,” Gwyn says. “I didn’t know I had it until after it was over. I just didn’t know what was wrong with me…I felt really out of my body. I felt really disconnected. I felt really down; I felt pessimistic.”

According to E! Online, Gwyn has knocked her daily wardrobe down to a few basic items like minidresses and tights, a pair of jeans, two coats and a couple of different-style boots in the winter.

Explains Ms. Paltrow, “It’s like I want to eliminate all of the fuss. I don’t have time anymore to sit there and be like, What should I wear? What goes with this?”

Speaking of trainer Tracy Anderson, apparently Gwyneth introduced her to Madonna!

Gwyn says, “I still haven’t learned my lesson about not sharing my people with Madonna, because she steals them away forever.”

    SHE HAS NO CAREER ANYMORE AND ALL THIS PUBLICITY IS JUST TO TRY TO REVIVE SOME TYPE OF CAREER!!!

    SHE IS A SNOBBY DOG ASHAMED TO BE SEEN WITH HER HUSBAND!!!

    TOTALLY DISLIKE THIS LIAR!!

  • girdie

    She’s human. I really disliked her before, but I realize we are just people trying to find our way.

    Let’s try and have compassion for one another. It isn’t easy, but what’s the alternative: hate.

    ****************
    Why would Brad take all the blame? This is something I could never understand, why the man is always blamed when there is a break-up. This society needs to recognize that woman have faults too, and many times it is the woman who is at fault or it is both of them who is at fault.

  • Aa

    She is a snob. She messed up big-time by leaving Brad. Brad is a good guy.

  • BETSY SMITH

    WHO DID SHE CHEAT ON WITH BRAD… BRAD IS TO BLAME TOO…
    HE IS NOT ALL THAT GOODY GOODY.. THEY BOTH DECIDED TO BREAK UP…WHY NOT TALK ABOUT HOW BRAD CHEATED ON JENNIFER ANISTON …BREAK UP..SHE DID NOT FEEL THAT HE WAS THE RIGHT MAN FOR
    HER….AND NOW LOOK AT WHAT HAPPENED HE IS IN A HAPPY RELATIONSHIP WITH ANGIE AND HAS 4 CHILDREN AND A FIFTH ON THE WAY..GWYNETH IS MARRIED AND HAS 2 CHILDREN..
    SO PEOPLE MOVE ON AND GET ON WITH THEIR LIVES…

  • she is hideous

    Where is there any actual proof that Brad cheated on his ex?

    Put it out there or shut up!! Tab lies do not = truth of anything.

    GP admitted years later that the breakup was all her fault, her words, her truth, from her own lips, not mine.

  • bet betty

    (Puke. In. Mouth. Whenever. See. Her. Face.)

    Excuse. Me.

  • Susan

    She gets on my nerves. She’s not attractive by any means at all.

  • Gwenythfan

    I liked Gwenyth with Brad, but I love Brad with Angie. They are too hot together (ouch) as for Jennifer…she was just a waste of time.

    depression has nothing to do with money.

  • dang

    why isn’t anyone talking about her rock star husband?

  • ricki

    Postnatal? Is she stupid?

  • Ha!

    Dude – “She is Hideous” and “Becky Smith”, lose the caps lock. You’re giving me a headache.

    Who blamed Brad for anything? WTF are you people talking about? And who cares? That was YEARS ago. When did people become so freaking over-protective of Brad Pitt? He’s a big boy, you know.

  • Ha!

    Ricki – No, she’s not stupid. When you’re diagnosed in the UK, you probably call it what they tell you you have.

  • Helena

    She cheated with no one…shut up already Brangelina fans.

  • Always Liked Gwennie

    Remember Brad used to call her his gwennie?

    I think the rumors were that she had an affair with Viggo Mortensen when he was smoking hot ala The Perfect Murder era.

    And she was always well read/educated.. it is just that she doesn’t think about how people will interrupt the things she says before she says it.

    She doesn’t mean to be pretentious.. she was just raised that way. LOL!

  • Always Liked Gwennie

    It wasjust odd how when they broke up it was beyond OVER! All he would say is that she was not in his life anymore nor does he talk to her and he refused to discuss the reason for the break up which made her look highly suspect.

    Then years later she opened up and said he was wonderful and blameless and she was the “architect of her own misery” and a mess.. blah blah..

    She never said she cheated.. it was just a bizarre, sudden and very final break up.

  • Helen

    Let’s see she has a movie opening soon??? what timing??? that boy of hers is pretty old now she could have came out with this way before now. Yeah I believe she is really crazy but this is set up to get attention for her movie. Sorry didn’t work for me, she is just so pathetic and disgusting.

  • Ha!

    It’s not exactly a huge secret that this interview to promote her latest project, Helen. Hence the Iron Man mask sitting under her elbow on the cover. It might be a good idea to actually read the interview before we start making snide comments about what little tiny portion of the printed article was chosen and posted on here. Why would she discuss her post partum or natal depression if she weren’t being interviewed? Hmmm, that could be the reason she didn’t come out with it until now. Hmmm….

  • Linda

    OH FOR GODS SAKE! She claims she developed this depression because she did not have massages during this pregnancy like she had during the last pregnancy! That just proves she’s a lying , pretentious, attention seeking, loser,has been! Why the hell is she on the cover of a magazine if she wants privacy so bad? It’s not like any one is going to see Iron man because she’s in it ! They could have cast Rosie O’Donell instead and people would go, just because they like the character and Robert Downing Jr. not her! Also, she is still so hung up on Brad, mentions him when ever she has a chance, it’s pathetic !

  • American

    How was it a mistake, #9? She has a loving husband and two beautiful kids. Her Brad Pitt-less life is great.

  • bet betty

    Yeah. Her. Pitt-less. Life. Was. Great…….

    Till. Found. Out. Pitt. Had. His. Own. Family — the Kids and his lady.

    LOL.

    Would. Anyone. consider. to. watch. the. combination. of. drug-had-been. and. a. pretentious. snob?

    Pay. Me.

    Still. Will. Not. Go. LOL

  • onmyown

    No wonder why she having problem with her husband ?

  • ihateher

    She’s full of shit. A few pairs of jeans my arse. Just recently she was pictured wearing some gorgeous and unbelievably expensive gowns, and the purses she carries don’t cost less than 9, 000 each lol..Hypocrites!

  • Jay

    Two big hypocrites with fake accents and everyone knows it. They look so extremely stupid.

  • rien

    What I know about PDS is that is a common symptoms that can happen to any woman. But it also needs an evaluation from a doctor. If GP had it, I feel so sorry for her, because it can influence her relationship with her son, and if it is not treated then it can happen that she will have a difficult relationship with the future children
    On the other hand, she could not simply claim it that she had “the baby blues”. She could not claim that “she knew” that she had it, after it is over. It is not believable enough to me. And, Baby Blues attacked more to the feelings, minds, and not to the collection of clothes!

  • Debra

    We are still stuck on Gwyneth and Brad? I don’t believe neither Brad nor Gwyneth cheated on the other. You can’t believe everything you read in tabloids.

    And beleive or not, even rich people can be depressed! Money doesn’t make you happy–actually, it usually does the opposite–makes you depressed.

    Vogue has a really bad grahpic artist who does the touching up. Why would they do this to Gwyneth’s eyebrows? She is perfect untouched. Leave well enough alone.

  • Amanda

    Some of you people really need a life. Your name calling and criticism is getting old. If you dislike Gwyneth so much, then why is it the same people are Always bickering about her? HMMMM?????

  • pick meeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

    this is the first time she has said something that didnt want to make me hurl

  • April

    Didn’t we see this already?

  • greg

    yawn, she’s boring

  • bladr

    shes beautiful

  • Krissy

    She’s beautiful. However, the person in charge of designing the front page needs to either go back for more training, or be fired. Why would they do that to her eyebrows? Yuck.

  • Nina

    Just saw the large cover. She’s not pretty but still no excuse for them to make her look like a tranny.

  • marion

    You’re all very cruel. She’s adorable and i believe her when she says she had depression. Money doesn’t prevent you from being depressed sometimes.
    I love her.
