Gwyneth Paltrow is on a quest to prove that despite being a fabulously beautiful, famous and award-winning actress that she's like one of us regular folk.
"We have this idea that you can't be a mother and a businesswoman and like to have sex!" says Paltrow in the interview. "How is an intelligent woman a sexual being? It’s really hard to integrate those things."
She then turns it personal: "Like, 'Gwyneth has sex? Really?' It doesn’t seem to go together. But I think it’s important, as mothers and as women contributing to society in whatever way we each are, that our true sexuality doesn’t get lost or put aside."
Can't deny that: We should all embrace that everyone contains multitudes.
Paltrow, 43, says her company employs men ("we have two," she says), "But I do love working with women," she added. "I love working with mothers. Mothers take care of business!"
She also discussed her struggle with relaxation. "I have yet to meet someone who isn’t burdened with hyper-responsibility," she said. "Everyone is suffering from this sense of 'I have to do it all and I have to do it perfectly.' It’s all my friends, all my colleagues: We try to do everything to such a high standard. And I'm like, Where did we get this from? Because I'm [expletive] exhausted!"
Now, that's a sentiment we can all get behind.
