Gwyneth Paltrow Covers 'Good Housekeeping' February 2011
Here’s what the 38-year-old Country Strong actress had to share:
On why she’s seldom photographed with husband Chris Martin: âIf Iâm looking grumpy in public or if Chris and I leave a restaurant separately, itâs only because we donât want to encourage photographers.â
On Chris: âI can depend on him. He makes me laugh. Heâs really appreciative of me. You know, he makes me feel special.â
On fighting post-partum depression after son Moses‘ birth: âI felt like a zombie. I couldnât access my heart. I couldnât access my emotions. I couldnât connect. It was terrible, it was the exact opposite of what had happened when Apple was born. With her, I was on cloud nine. I couldnât believe it wasnât the same. I just thought it meant I was a terrible mother and a terrible person.â
On learning to play guitar for Country Strong: âIt was so much fun to pick up a new skill. I can be a perfectionist, so I really practiced. And between Chrisâs help and the director needing me to be prepared, I was totally ready when the time came.â
