One would imagine that having a celebrity as a parent might be one of the coolest things, but for Hollywood actress Gwyneth Paltrow’s children, her celebrity status is not something they bask in because they have never even seen any of their mother’s films.
Beyond that, the two teenagers also think their mother’s onscreen career is “weird” and “embarrassing.” Such a bummer review for one of the biggest celebrities in the world.
On Thursday, this fact was revealed on the premiere episode of Shop Today with Jill Martin, in which Gwyneth appeared. The actress confessed that her kids don’t think she or their dad, Chris Martin, is particularly cool. “My daughter, Apple, thinks it’s weird to watch me on screen. She thinks it’s embarrassing and always has made fun of us. It’s quite funny when she does that. My son, Moses, on the other hand, doesn’t see it as such a bother, and I think he sees us as pretty cool. He’s only 15, so I expect him to have a different opinion soon,” she said.
Gwyneth may be an A-list actress to the world, but her children just want to see her as their mom. “My son has seen the Iron Man things, but my daughter definitely hasn’t seen me in a movie. She says she prefers me at home than on screen,” the actress said, laughing.
Gwyneth, however, understands why her two kids may not be fazed about her filmography. The Goop founder also admitted to finding it hard to watch herself in many of her past performances. It’s pretty safe to say her daughter has valid reasons. The Shallow Hal star revealed at a virtual reunion with the cast of The Royal Tenenbaums on Monday hosted by the Tribeca Film Festival that the movie is one of the few films she starred in that she can tolerate.Other than that, she candidly shared, “I hate, hate, hate seeing myself in a movie ever.” Her sentiment for The Royal Tenenbaums, in which she starred as Margot Tenenbaum, is linked to the fact that it reminds her of her late father. Her producer and director father, Bruce Paltrow, visited her during a scene, and it became a special moment for her. Her father died the following year from pneumonia and cancer complications at the age of 58. That scene she did during her father’s visit remains the only scene she can watch in her whole career.
