Palter Blames Herself For Dad's Death

GWYNETH PALTROW blames herself for her father's death from cancer, because she is convinced she could have saved him.

Producer BRUCE PALTROW lost his battle with throat cancer in October 2002, after being in remission for four years - and the actress wishes she had been stricter in making him follow a healthy diet.

She says, "I was in so much denial for so much of his illness. The thought of life without my father was totally unfathomable to me.

"He went for four years when he was cancer-free, or so we thought. We felt, he's going to be fine now, let's move on. I wasn't adamant enough in cleaning up his diet and getting rid of the cancer and the radiation.

"Now I really feel I could have extended his quality of life. But I wasn't as strong as I should have been."
