Hollywood actress Gwyneth Paltrow has vowed to only work on films that interest her, even if it means giving up her celebrity lifestyle.
The London-based star - who won an OSCAR for her performance in SHAKESPEARE IN LOVE - admits she's been less than discerning in her film choices.
The 31-year-old says, "I worked so much in my twenties and I really burnt the candle at both ends. I wasn't too picky about what I did, and I was lucky that I did some really good films, but I also did some really rubbish films.
"I think part of the downside about being so successful and winning the Oscar at the age of 26 is that I sort of became insouciant about the things that I chose.
"I thought, 'Oh, I'll just be try this, it'll be fun, or I'll do that for the money.' Things that now I would absolutely never do.
"I think the combination of losing my father, turning 30, taking a year off and doing a play here in London has really shifted everything.
"I don't want to work so much. I wanna do things that are worth my time, and if it's just doing small films like Sylvia then I'll get a smaller flat and take the Tube more.
"I'll change my lifestyle as opposed to selling out and doing something that makes me feel horrible about myself as a person."06/01/2004 17:55
