Busy Philipps - Busy Philipps is nothing like Gwyneth Paltrow
Busy Philipps has ''a different reality'' to Gwyneth Paltrow and doesn't agree with the 'Iron Man 3' star's recent claims that Hollywood mothers have a ''harder'' time than most.
Busy Philipps has ''a different reality'' to Gwyneth Paltrow.
The 'Cougar Town' actress, who has daughters Birdie, five, and 10-month-old Cricket with husband Marc Silverstein, doesn't agree with the 'Iron Man 3' star's recent claims that Hollywood mothers have a ''harder'' time than most and feels very lucky to get a lot of time off.
Asked about Gwyneth's controversial comments, the 34-year-old star told the 'HuffPost Live' on Thursday (29.05.14): ''God bless her, she really just says what she feels. That's her reality. That's her truth. It's just not mine. I have a different reality and a different truth.''
She added: ''Being a working mom, I've got it made. I'm on a TV show where my hiatus is [my kids'] summer, so I'm free to be with them in the summer time. I'm able to afford full-time help because of what I do. My husband also works, and my nanny makes my life doable and so easy.
''I feel like, for me, I have nothing to complain about in that regard...I don't ever feel like I have to stop myself from complaining about how hard it is to be an actress. I mean, it's not that hard.''
Mother-of-six Angelina Jolie recently blasted her peers and said they ''shouldn't complain'' about how hard their lives are because they have ''much more support than most people.''
