Gwyneth Paltrow Struggles Harder Than Your Average Working Mom

Look, if you don’t understand the hate for Gwyneth Paltrow by now, there’s absolutely nothing I can do for you. I’m not even sure reading this will change your mind because, much like Gwyneth, you live in another world.

Gwyneth recently opened up to E! News about her plan of doing only one movie a year so she can spend more time with her kids. She explained how much harder it was to maintain her film career as her children get older.

“It’s much harder for me. I feel like I set it up in a way that makes it difficult becauseā€¦for me, like if I miss a school run, they are like, ‘Where were you?’ I don’t like to be the lead so I don’t [have] to work every day, you know, I have little things that I like and obviously I want it to be good and challenging and interesting and be with good people and that kind of thing.”

“I think it’s different when you have an office job, because it’s routine and, you know, you can do all the stuff in the morning and then you come home in the evening. When you’re shooting a movie, they’re like, ‘We need you to go to Wisconsin for two weeks,’ and then you work 14 hours a day and that part of it is very difficult. I think to have a regular job and be a mom is not as, of course there are challenges, but it’s not like being on set.”

Oh, yes. The struggle is very real for Gwyneth Paltrow. It’s not easy being both a mom and an actor who gets paid millions of dollars to play pretend in front of a camera. Not to mention the two week vacations where you have to, ugh, read lines off a script for 14 hours a day.

You office moms have it made. You get to pick up your kid in the morning, clock in, clock out and make dinner in the evening day in and day out never having to change your routine for 18 years. So lucky.
