Busy Philipps - Busy Philipps is nothing like Gwyneth Paltrow

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.''
