Gwyneth Paltrow Feared Hollywood Had Forgotten Her
( CM ) - Oscar winner GWYNETH PALTROW was desperate to return to acting after taking a break to give birth - because she feared Hollywood had forgotten about her.
The 35-year-old star took a hiatus while she was pregnant with two-year-old Moses, so she could give birth and be a full-time mum to the tot and his four-year-old sister Apple.
But Paltrow admits she spent the whole time worrying about other actresses taking her place.
When she was offered roles in new movies Iron Man and Two Lovers, Paltrow leapt at the chance to reclaim her status as one of Tinseltown's top leading ladies.
She explains, "I really did not know if there would be a place for me. Jodie Foster was right, especially if you are a woman and especially if you are not 25.
" Hollywood is pretty cut-throat, and everybody has a short memory. There is always someone who is younger or hotter or prettier."
