She explains, “I hadn’t worked in a long time. I was really committed to being home. Then I finally agreed to do this movie. I reached a place where I thought, ‘It’s okay that I have a passion for something besides my family.’ I love making films. If I do one thing that makes me fulfilled, then I’m a more interesting woman for my children.”
Gwyneth Paltrow decided to return to acting to become a more interesting mom to her children. The star has taken a break from Hollywood since giving birth to her second child Moses last year, but she was tempted away from domestic bliss by an offer to appear with Robert Downey Jr. in forthcoming comic book adaptation Iron Man.
