Paltrow's Guilt Over Filming

GWYNETH PALTROW is battling feelings of guilt as she prepares to film IRON MAN 2 - because she has to drag her children out of their native London for the shoot.
The actress, who plays Pepper Potts in the hit franchise, will leave the British capital, where she lives with her husband Chris Martin and two kids, on Monday (23Mar09) to begin filming the sequel to the blockbuster movie in the U.S.
But she admits she hates having to remove her children - four-year-old daughter Apple and son Moses, one - from their normal surroundings.
She says, "I'm feeling 'mother guilt' because my daughter is looking forward to going but my son says, 'I don't wanna leave my London house!' So I always feel pretty guilty about that. I try to say, 'We're gonna swim and it's going to be sunny!' I try to point out the positives."
And the star insists the youngsters are often confused when she returns to work: "I barely ever do films; I'm with them almost all the time. But in a way it makes the transition harder. I feel like if I worked all the time, then they would be used to it. But when I'm always there and always doing the school runs and I'm always around and then I just disappear for 14 hours a day to film, it's hard."
