Gwyneth Paltrow on Her Kids: 'They Are Going to Have to Fend Off A Lot'
Here’s what the 44-year-old actress shared with the mag:
On encouraging her children to take risks: “In my case, I’ve borne these two kids into a particularly strange circumstance. They are going to have to fend off a lot and protect themselves from a lot of projections and prejudice about who they are, coming from the family that they come from. My daughter is super ballsy. I always follow her lead. I actually don’t need to encourage her to take risks. She likes to push herself; she wants to see how far she can get. It’s really inspiring to see that in a young woman.”
On why all women are amazing by 40: “If you haven’t taken all of life’s incredible knocks and disappointments and used them to become a fully integrated, self-expressing person by the time you’re 40, then what can I tell you?”
