Gwyneth Paltrow Was Depressed

Who isn’t? It’s national status quo. Oh wait, she’s British. Kind of. Here’s Gwyneth Paltrow at the birthday party for her son Moses Bruce at Centrico restaurant in NYC. Doesn’t anyone go to Chuck E. Cheese anymore? Throw that child into the ball pit and let him live a little.

Gwyneth’s interviewed in this May’s Vogue and she reveals that she suffered from postpartum depression after Moses was born. Maybe it was that name she chose. Because that’s sad.

“You know, I had postnatal depression after [my second child] Moses,” she says. “I didn’t know I had it until after it was over. I just didn’t know what was wrong with me…I felt really out of my body. I felt really disconnected. I felt really down; I felt pessimistic.”

Gwyneth thinks that she was depressed because she had to cut down on her usual treatments, like acupuncture. It also might have been because she works out with Madonna on a regular basis and Madonna only allows them to eat raw seaweed and human souls. That would depress anyone.
