According to an entertainment report, Gwyneth Paltrow said that she left Hollywood in 2004 because she wanted to focus on raising her daughter, Apple.
The Goop entrepreneur told reporters at the launch ceremony for her more inexpensive versions of her product line that once she had Apple, she disliked having to fly somewhere to work and wanted to stay home.
Paltrow starred in a number of critically acclaimed films in the late ’90s and early ’00s, including “Shallow Hal,” “Emma,” “Se7en,” and “Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow.” And in 1999, for “Shakespeare in Love,” she took home the Academy Award for Best Actress.
Paltrow claims that her life’s focus shifted once she wed Chris Martin in 2003 after giving birth to their daughter the following year. They also had a son together, Moses, who is now 17 years old. We should all allow ourselves to reevaluate our priorities, she added.
The 51-year-old actress expressed gratitude for the opportunity to take a break from performing to spend time with her young children at home. Then she heard a voice within her head stating that she wasn’t sure whether she wanted to act again.
After having children, Paltrow continued to act, most notably as Pepper Potts in the “Iron Man” films and “The Avengers,” albeit her parts were smaller and less regular.
Since leaving the limelight, Paltrow has focused on building her lifestyle business, Goop, which has grossed over $100 million since its 2008 inception.
Apple is a current Vanderbilt University student, whereas Moses is a high school senior.
Paltrow is the stepmother to Brad Falchuk’s two children, Brody, 17, and Isabella, 19.
The television shows American Horror Story, Scream Queens, and Glee were all co-created by the 52-year-old writer, director, and producer Brad Falchuk.
In 2018, after she had finalized the divorce from the Coldplay singer two years earlier, Paltrow married Falchuk.
