Transcript for Gwyneth Paltrow Seeks to End the 'Mommy Wars'
Gwyneth paltrow takes a lot of heat from working moms for some comments she made. Now, the actress is speaking out, calling for a cease-fire. ABC's bianna golodryga has the story. Reporter: She's gorgeous and has an Oscar. But a-lister Gwyneth paltrow is also a lightning rod for controversy. The mother of two caused an uproar last month after telling E! News, I think to have a regular job and be a mom is not as, of course there are challenges, but it's not like being on set. Give me a kiss. Reporter: Now, the 41-year-old "Iron man" actress is responding to her critics on her website, goop. A lot of heat was thrown my way, eggs specially by other working mothers, who used my out-of-context quote as an opportunity to express feelings perhaps isn'ted on the subject. As the mommy wars rage on I'm perplexed and amazed by how little slack we cut each other as women. This is the discussion that's going to get eye balls looking at her blog. Reporter: Her recent post is receiving mixed reviews. One person writing, please stop opening your ignorant mouth. Another defending her. Saying, she was answering a question about her life and how she balances work and family. The blonde beauty has made polarizing remarks before. In 2006, she said, I can't pretend to be somebody who makes $25,000 a year. And in 2010, she told the press association, every woman can make time to work out. Anytime that somebody who has all the resources in the world is making comments about motherhood, mothers will say, who is this person to make a comment about what I have to go through on a daily basis? Reporter: For "Good morning America," bianna golodryga, ABC news, New York. Okay. Joining us now is Ericka souter, editor of In her blog, she said her comments were taken out of context. Why do you think they've resonated with women, often times, in a negative way. We have a gorgeous, millionaire, Oscar winner, comparing to women who have to toil away at 9:00 to 5:00 jobs or work 16-hour days. It's seems so disingenuous and seems insulting. And she comes off not grateful for all of the things she does have. She said her life was more difficult. Yes. She was actually saying, we know our schedule. We know what we can do in the morning. We don't have the endless days on-set. But she talked about having two weeks on the job at a movie, where -- it's just a part of her life is just something completely unrelatable. That's why she has to be careful. She is also making the point here, and you all talked about, a lot of women being tough on other women. Yeah. Well, that's actually one part that I agree with her on. Women are very harsh with other women, especially moms. But it doesn't come from a place of hate. It's not like we're just baby-toting jerks. It comes from a place of insecurity. When she says she's doing this a certain way is saying, inherently, the way you're doing it is bad. The internet creates a meanness. Because there's anonymity and anyone can say anything. There's some good things about it. There was a time when you were isolated. And you may not have wanted to talk about how hard things are to your friends or your family. And the internet gives us a resource. On the other side of that, you're getting a lot of criticism.
