I know Bruce (Paltrow) would want me to pay tribute to New Orleans, his favorite city, and all the Gulf Coast and our kids in Iraq . Let's get the heck out of there. Thank you all. ... Huff.
I think my husband Bruce Paltrow is up there, stirring this up for me
I think that it's our time, ... We're interesting women, and we're not dead women, we're very much alive, we're very sexy and intelligent and vibrant. Hot flashes and all.

I think Gwyneth is such an artist. You know I think that she will long for fulfilling some of that.
You know, she stole the show. They were -- they were stomping on the seats for her. And I was just so proud. And I thought this is, this is meant to be.
Everybody was over the moon, you know, we were just flying from that performance. It was chilling. You know, sort of blood chilling performance. I couldn't believe she was my daughter
I've always just adored music. It's my first love, really. I admire and respect people in the music business. You really have to work hard and diligently. Sometimes actors can be lazy and get away with it, but you can't do that if you're a musician.
Onstage or in films, you do affect peoples' lives, and sometimes that's very gratifying. But still, there's this little voice that says you should be doing something that matters.
Acting is really only part of my life. I'm addicted to it.
I've kept my sanity in this business by trying out for a role and then going home and trying to forget about it.
I think one of my very favorite films of all time was with Peter Sellers when he played Chauncey, the gardener. Being There.
I was raised in a time where children were still seen and not heard basically, so I think a lot of us in my generation went the other way and just tried to be as much more liberal and open and we're still paying for it.
Mostly, I spend my time being a mother to my two children, working in my organic garden, raising masses of sweet peas, being passionately involved in conservation, recycling and solar energy.
Just look at my face. Its an extraordinary experience. All of my friends who are grandparents have been saying, just wait, a bit cynically, but its just extraordinary. You feel like a child again yourself. Just walking on air.
