Gwyneth Paltrow fancies herself as a mother who has it much harder than the mothers who work a normal nine to five job. Paltrow was very serious when she said this during a recent interview. You can almost hear the violins come out from all over the nation with working moms playing Gwyneth some sad background music to go along with her absurd claims.
On “Fox and Friends” live on Friday morning March 28, the hosts on the curvy couch, including Geraldo Rivera, had a field day with Paltrow’s claim. A tough day on a movie shoot is “when your tea isn’t warm enough” suggested one host.
They also read some Twitter posts on the air and Paltrow got absolutely no sympathy for her hardship comments. The Fox News website also covered Paltrow's tale of woe.
These hardship comments came from a woman who probably has nannies, housekeepers and drivers to take her back and forth to work. For sure she has much more help with her two kids than most working mothers.
Paltrow’s interview included these few lines that started a bit of a Twitter rage:
"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 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."
You work hard for two weeks and make millions and then come home and this is a description of hardship? This is so much harder than the 52 weeks a year that mom's work? Apparently Paltrow thinks so.
So if you hear the sound of sad violin music today, most likely it is to accompany Paltrow’s tale of woe about being a movie star mother!
