Love her or hate her, there’s no denying that Gwyneth Paltrow is everywhere these days! The actress and celebrity mom opens up to the British version of Glamour Magazine, where inside she talks about her life in London with her children and how she tries to make her marriage work to her husband, Chris Martin. Here are some snippets of what she says:

She loves London: “I love London – it’s my adopted home. Being an American woman living in Britain, there are things I’ve had to catch up on, though. Chris had to explain Blue Peter to me! In London, the kids and I really take advantage of the city. I have them on the tube, in the museums, in St James’ Park, the theatre. I use that city so much – I want them exposed to it.”

Balancing work and motherhood: “I drive the kids to school, I cook. But I have a nanny, so if I need to go to Dubai for Max Factor, then I can.”

Marriage problems: “It’s hard being married. You go through great times, you go through terrible times. We’re the same as any couple. I asked my dad once, ‘How did you and Mum stay married for 33 years?’ And he said, ‘Well, we never wanted to get divorced at the same time’. And I think that’s what happens. When two people throw in the towel at the same time, then you break up, but if one person’s saying, “come on, we can do this’, you carry on. I’ve learned more about myself by being married than anything else. I hate to say, ‘We’ve got it worked out,’ because you never know what’s going to happen, but we laugh, we’re good friends, we like to do the same stuff.”

Her children: “Having children changed everything. I used to work all the time, but if you do that, you don’t see your kids, so I look for something that’s interesting, that doesn’t require me to be in every scene and fits in with my children’s schoolschedule. Having children is a huge responsibility in terms of raising people who will contribute to the world. The people I’ve met who function best in the world are people with good manners, who are curious, who know different places and speak more than one language. So that’s what I’m trying to do.”
