Gwyneth Paltrow: I make my children watch TV in French or Spanish

Actress Gwyneth Paltrow, who raises two kids with husband Chris Martin, says that she only allows her children to watch television in French or Spanish instead of their native English.

"Apple was cross as I only let them watch TV in French or Spanish. When I'm in France, I go to Boulevard Beaumarchais and buy all their cartoons," she said.

The 39-year-old also spoke about her own "draconian diet" and while she has eased the macrobiotic lifestyle, she still cheats every now and then, reported Daily Mail.

"I was very strict for a while, I was macrobiotic for a couple of years, then I got pregnant and just ate ice cream. What I've learned is that I want to enjoy my life, and food is a big part of it. I love to cook and feed people. I cook every day.

"My indulging is a fresh baguette with cheese and a glass of red wine or french fries and fried zucchini. Or a turkey burger," she said.

Paltrow also said her marriage to Martin is still going strong after nine years because of a strong friendship bond they share.

"Probably our artistic temperaments. Artists are sensitive; there are ups and downs mood-wise. Musicians need a certain gravitas and focus in order to write. The temperament that goes with someone who is creative can be challenging. I focus more on understanding than being understood."
