Ever since Gwyneth Paltrow started her Goop blog and opened up a Twitter account, she’s been a different person, hasn’t she? How often do you see A-listers talking so openly about $475 colon cleanses, their favorite pea soup and the best place to get a bikini wax in Paris?
Little by little, Gwyneth is beginning to grow on us. Sure, she might sound pretentious at times but at least she’s not lying about who she is, right?
(Nicole Kidman: take note.)
Well, the mom blogger dug into her archives (read: the pre-Goop days) and talked about the post-partum depression she suffered after giving birth to her second child, Moses.
During an appearance on Out of Character, Gwyneth explained: “I didn’t know really what was wrong with me… It changed me. It was great because it also became so clear to me what was important to me.
“At that time I just had no interest in career whatsoever. My agents would be like, ‘This is getting weird. If you don’t [get] re-engaged, everyone’s gonna forget about you’. I was like, ‘I don’t care. I’m not leaving the babies’. It was so worth it.”
The Oscar-winning actress also credits her old friend Madonna for helping her get through her depression (by the way, what ever happened to that relationship?).
Gwyneth also explained that even though she has a lot going for herself, she feels best when she is a stay-at-home mom to her kids Apple and Moses and that nothing beats her home life with her hubby of almost ten years, Chris Martin.
Whereas post-partum depression can be difficult on just about anyone, we’re glad that Gwyneth is opening up about her experiences. What are your thoughts?
