Gwyneth Paltrow Opens Up About How She Feels About Her Son Moses Going to College

Seeing your kid go to college is quite rewarding and signals a big accomplishment for both them and yourself as a parent. However, for most parents, this is a bittersweet moment because your kid won’t be around as much, and you always worry about whether they will be able to take care of themselves.

The Avengers star Gwyneth Paltrow recently had a chat with The Hollywood Reporter and opened up about how she feels about her son 18-year-old son Moses going to college this upcoming fall. And it is no different compared to the way almost every other parent feels.

“It’s kind of giving me a nervous breakdown, if I’m honest,” Paltrow told the media outlet. “I started being like, ‘Oh my God, and I need to quit my job and I need to sell my house and I need to move.’ It’s sort of putting things into turmoil.” 

Paltrow previously experienced the same thing with her 19-year-old daughter Apple and recognized the need to change her perspective on things. According to her, she is now looking towards the positives that will come with having an “empty nest.”

“Instead of creating a sense of loss — what if I were free? And I could say yes to a girls’ weekend because I didn’t feel guilty. That kind of thing,” Paltrow added.
