Gwyneth Paltrow is In Her Feels About Having a Half-Empty Nest — & We Don't Blame Her

Gwyneth Paltrow has big feelings about her big kids flying the coop, and all parents of teens can relate. The GOOP founder and Marvel Universe star appeared on The Late Late Show this week and told James Corden just how hard it is to have a half-empty nest.

Paltrow and her ex-husband Chris Martin have two teens, their daughter Apple, 18 (who is totally Paltrow’s twin!), and their son Moses, 16. Paltrow said it’s a “huge change” to have Apple off at college. And while Moses, a junior in high school, will be with mom a little while longer, Corden wondered how she is handling the notion of an impending empty nest.

“Not very well, not very well. I’m going to be coming to Hilary’s house,” she said, turning to her co-guest Hilary Swank who is pregnant with twins.

“Come over,” Swank encouraged, laughing as she added, “There’s plenty to go around.”

Moses is also adjusting to his big sister, who Paltrow said has a “big presence,” not being at home. People always ask him what it’s like to have Apple off at college, and he has a simple answer that got an “Aww!” from the audience: “Quiet.”

During their chat, Paltrow took a moment to thank Corden for his help with Moses as he apparently gave her son a ride home from his dad’s house.
