Actress Gwyneth Paltrow
Actress Gwyneth Paltrow, who said last year she would not raise her child in the United States because her homeland is too dangerous, has changed her mind.
The Oscar-winning leading lady and her husband, Chris Martin, have since spent just as much time in the U.S. as in their other home in London, she admitted.
“I’ve been here as much as there,” she said. “I’m sticking around.”
In January 2004, she said: “I worry about bringing up a child in America.
“At the moment there’s a weird, over-patriotic atmosphere over there, like, ‘We’re number one and the rest of the world doesn’t matter.'”
She added: “And the guns in school – it’s not great.”
Paltrow raised the ire of many patriotic Americans by saying: “(Last year), I just had a baby and thought, ‘I don’t want to live there.’ Bush’s anti-environment, pro-war policies are a (disgrace).”
