For once, perfectionist Gwyneth Paltrow had the public’s sympathy this week when she announced that she and her Coldplay frontman-husband, Chris Martin, were separating after 10 years and two children together.
But any twinge of compassion for the Oscar-winning actress-turned-GOOP lifestyle guru quickly vanished after the 41-year-old said it was harder for her to parent than for regular working moms who go into an office every day.
“It’s much harder for me,” Paltrow said in an E! News interview. "I think it’s different when you have an office job, because it’s routine and 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," she continued.
As any human can imagine, parents were outraged at the "Iron Man" actress’ comments.
“’Thank God I don’t make millions filming one movie per year,’ is what I say to myself pretty much every morning as I wait on a windy Metro-North platform, about to begin my 45-minute commute into the city," Dawson wrote in a piece for The New York Post.
