In a new Instagram post on Wednesday, the International Day of the Girl, Gwyneth Paltrow celebrated her daughter, Apple Martin. ”Everything I do in my life I do for this girl (and her brother),” she wrote, next to a selfie of her and her 13-year-old daughter. Adding just one more way she has stood up for women this week in light of her sexual harassment allegations against Harvey Weinstein.
Paltrow doesn’t necessarily need a special holiday to talk about her role as a parent to Apple and her brother, Moses, 11. Earlier this year, Paltrow told People that she tries hard to remain present in her children’s lives while taking time for herself.
“I would say honestly every day what I do for my health is make sure that I really connect and hug my children. And lie with them at night,” she said. “Nothing fills me up more. They say that if you strengthen and amplify your family and love connections, it’s the best thing for your health, so I always try to make sure that I do that every day. It’s not hard—they’re pretty cute!”
This post comes just days after Paltrow became one of many women to come forward with a story about producer Harvey Weinstein, whom she says sexually harassed her when she was 22. Paltrow told The New York Times he “tried to massage her and invited her into the bedroom,” and that when she rebuffed his advances, he grew angry. “I thought he was going to fire me,” she told the Times. “He screamed at me for a long time. It was brutal.”
Paltrow would go on to win a best-actress Oscar for a role in a Weinstein-produced movie, Shakespeare in Love, and have the kind of successful Hollywood career that many actresses fear they might lose when rejecting the advances of powerful men.
