Actress Gwyneth Paltrow wants her children to be bilingual and to reach that goal she has them watch TV in both Spanish and French instead of English.
Speaking to NDTV the A-list actress revealed:
“Apple was cross as I only let them watch TV in French or Spanish. When I’m in France, I go to Boulevard Beaumarchais and buy all their cartoons.”
Speaking to the SF Gate Paltrow admits that focusing on her kids has become her priority. Paltrow says of being a parent:
“I haven’t starred in a movie since I was pregnant with my daughter; I can’t be away from home that long. I look for an interesting supporting part I can do about once a year. That’s the most I can manage. Some women can do it and that’s fantastic, but I can’t. You make choices as a wife and mother, don’t you? You can’t have it all.”
Gwyneth Paltrow went on to talk about her “draconian diet” which according to the actress she has eased off of over the last several months. Paltrow notes:
“I was very strict for a while, I was macrobiotic for a couple of years, then I got pregnant and just ate ice cream. What I’ve learned is that I want to enjoy my life, and food is a big part of it. I love to cook and feed people. I cook every day … My indulging is a fresh baguette with cheese and a glass of red wine or french fries and fried zucchini. Or a turkey burger.”
When she’s not busy spending time with her children or planning out her daily food intake Paltrow is busy being named the “best dressed” female on the planet, talk about keeping it together while raising a family.
Do you think children should learn to be bilingual at an early age given the need to speak multiple languages these days?
