Gwyneth Paltrow: Depression Made Me Realize What’s Important

Oscar-winner Gwyneth Paltrow has been candid about the postpartum depression she suffered after the birth of her son Moses in 2006, saying last year, “I couldn’t connect. It was terrible… I just thought it meant I was a terrible mother and person.”

Looking back, the Proof star now says that she’s thankful for that dark period because it helped her put things into perspective.

“I didn’t really know what was wrong with me…. It changed me,” Gwyneth reveals in an interview that aired this week on Out of Character With Krista Smith. “It was great because it also became so clear to me what was important to me. At that time I just had absolutely no interest in career whatsoever. My agents would be like, ‘This is getting weird. If you don’t get re-engaged everyone’s gonna forget about you.’ I was like, ‘I don’t care. I’m not leaving the babies.’ It was so worth it.”

Gwyneth and her husband Chris Martin are also parents to 7-year-old daughter Apple.
