Sept. 19, 2012 — -- intro: From the moment she named her daughter Apple, it was clear Gwyneth Paltrow was not going to follow convention. In an interview with the October edition of InStyle magazine, the Oscar-winning actress revealed that she won't let Apple or her brother Moses watch TV in English.

"Oh hold on. My daughter is asking me a question," Paltrow said midway through the interview. "She's cross because I only let them watch TV in French or Spanish."

English cartoons won't do, either.

"When I'm in France, I go to [Boulevard] Beaumarchais and buy all their cartoons," she said.

Her unique style of parenting extends beyond her choices in children's entertainment. On her weekly advice newsletter/website GOOP and in her cookbook "My Father's Daughter," Paltrow waxes poetically about Apple, 8, and son Moses, 6. "Oh, how my heart leaps when I see them munching down kale with brown rice," she wrote in the cookbook about their favorite dish. She also revealed to Harper's Bazaar that they "all get into the tub together" whenever she's home.

But she's not the first celebrity mom to cause a stir. Click through to read about six more star moms and some of their eyebrow-raising child-rearing practices.

The "Jagged Little Pill" singer, who has released a new album, "Havoc and Bright Lights," about life as a wife, mother and alpha-woman, has been defending her stance on attachment parenting.

"I'm always available if he needs me, period. I love snuggling and sleeping next to him," Morissette told ABC News.

Asked about the controversy around attachment parenting, Morissette told the Associated Press, "What part of it is gross? ... "I think we're a severely undertouched society. Everyone thinks there's some kind of sexual impropriety going on when it's actually just connection and intimacy and nurturance."

Morissette, 38, who is married to rapper Mario "Souleye" Treadway, first raised eyebrows over the summer when she announced that she would breastfeed Ever, now 20 months, until he was ready to stop. media:

quicklist: 2title: Tori Spellingtext: Tori Spelling and her husband, Dean McDermott, stars of their own reality show, "Home Sweet Hollywood," have never been shy about sharing personal information. But Spelling's revelation over the summer that her husband finds her sexy when she is pregnant -- coupled with a photograph of her flaunting her fourth baby bump in a barely-there monokini -- may have been more than most people want to know -- or see.

Spelling was photographed at a family barbecue over Memorial Day weekend wearing the skimpy crocheted suit that barely covered her, ahem, assets. Papa-to-be McDermott, touching Spelling's belly in the picture, clearly approved. According to the UK's Daily Mail, Spelling recently said, "'I'm never as happy as when I'm pregnant. And Dean can't keep his hands off me! He's like, 'You're the sexiest pregnant woman.'"

Added the former "Beverly Hills 90210" actress, "I literally would have 10 babies if I could!"

Spelling gave birth to her fourth child, a boy she named Finn Davey, on Aug. 16459904
