Now that Gwyneth Paltrow has announced her decision to separate from husband, Chris Martin, the actress is ready for some down time. Less than 24 hours after the split news was revealed, she opened up to E! about her plans for the future.
“I just finished a movie in January that I was doing at the end of last year in London with Johnny Depp and then I had two weeks here and then I did a couple of episodes for Glee for the 100th episode,” she explained. “So I have to go back to mommy…I have a rule about one movie a year, so I can’t shoot anything for a while. But I’m developing some material and working on the site [Goop] and raising kids.”
The 41-year-old and her ex are parents to 9-year-old Apple and 7-year-old Moses, and Gwyneth admitted that it’s been harder to keep working as the kids get older. “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,” she said. “When you’re shooting a movie, they’re like, ‘We need you to go to Wisconsin for two weeks and 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.”
Gwyneth and Chris were married for more than 10 years when they announced the separation.
