5 Stars Speak on Being Working Moms in the Spotlight

Gwyneth Paltrow

Gwyneth believes it’s hard for her because being an actress is demanding: ”I think it’s different when you have an office job, because it’s routine and, you know, you can do all the stuff in the morning and then you come home in the evening. When you’re shooting a movie, they’re like, ‘We need you to go to Wisconsin for two weeks,’ and then you work 14 hours a day and that part of it is very difficult. I think to have a regular job and be a mom is not as, of course there are challenges, but it’s not like being on set.”

Halle Berry

Halle does find it difficult to juggle both her home and work life now that she has a newborn: ”You know, I’m working on a television show now, so I’m juggling working and being a mom and breast feeding while I’m working. It’s a whole new life for me now all over again, having a new little baby again.”
