Gwyneth Paltrow has vowed to return to the U.K. before her kids grow into teenagers. The actress and her husband, Coldplay rocker Chris Martin, have moved the family from London to Los Angeles to give them experience of living in Paltrow's native America.
But the star is adamant she will return to her U.K. home within three years as she doesn't want Apple, nine, and seven-year-old Moses to be teens in Hollywood.
She tells Red magazine, "I don't want my children to be teenagers in LA. No way. I'm looking at this move to America like two years, three years tops - then we will go back.
"It's part of my parenting philosophy that children should get the opportunity to reinvent themselves at a few points in their childhood to see where their strengths and weaknesses lie and to experience living in different cultures. It's an experiment.
"I love London - it's my favourite city in the world. I love my house and my life there. But in California, I have the girls I grew up with and my family."
Gwyneth Paltrow narrowly avoided a collision on her scooter last week (ends06Sep13) after pulling out in front of a school bus - with her daughter riding behind her on the back seat. The Sliding Doors star and her husband Chris Martin were picking up Apple and their son Moses from their school in Los Angeles when Paltrow's Vespa was caught on camera appearing to cut off a big yellow bus - prompting the driver to slam on the brakes to avoid ramming into the actress and her eldest child.
Video footage of the close call shows the mum of two seemingly oblivious to the danger as she merges into oncoming traffic, although rocker Martin appeared to be more cautious as he pulled away from the curb with Moses on the back of his scooter.
Gwyneth Paltrow's cookery book signing at East Hampton's Authors Night in New York this weekend (10-11Aug13) was so popular, the actress ran out of copies of her latest tome It's All Good: Delicious, Easy Recipes That Will Make You Look Good and Feel Great. The Iron Man star was supported at the event by her husband Chris Martin and their kids Moses and Apple.
While it is common practice for the status quo to take hold in your average sitcom following a firing, a breakup, or any other massive change, we usually don't see people taking back to their old states of being in real life after such calamities. But just as Community has prided itself in embodying the essence of the situation comedy, the reality surrounding it seems to be doing the same: The Hollywood Reporter reports that Dan Harmon, the creator and show runner of the cult phenomenon NBC series who was ousted from his spot in production after the conclusion of Season 3, is now officially returning to head production for the upcoming fifth season. Writer Chris McKenna, who left along with Harmon, is also expected to return.
Harmon's relationship with the network was more than a bit contentious, as was his rapport with star Chevy Chase, who has officially quit the series. But the brilliant creative's absence was felt, and hard, during Season 4, when fans lashed out against lackluster writing by replacement show runners Moses Port and Dan Guarascio. We're not sure if Harmon can completely undo the damage that his interim usurpers made to the Community canon (unless he completely erases this past season), but we are confident that Season 5 will at least recharge our passions with that old Greendale wit and charm. And so, we offer a celebratory "Huzzah!" (Is that right?)

Actress Gwyneth Paltrow and her rocker husband Chris Martin have angered one of their California neighbours after allegedly erecting a towering gate at the entrance of their mansion. The couple recently purchased the Brentwood property and the low-key stars promptly got to work on protecting their privacy by installing a nine-foot (2.74-metre) tall gate to shield their home from prying eyes.
However, one local has taken issue with the new blockade and has filed a complaint with the Los Angeles City Department of Building and Safety, claiming it violates the legal limit of six feet (1.83 metres).
Local officials have confirmed they are investigating the allegations. Paltrow and Martin will have 45 days to fix any violations or face fines of more than $900 (£580), reports TMZ.com.
The Iron Man actress recently admitted that she would love to temporarily relocate from the family's London pad to her native California, so her son Moses, seven, and daughter Apple, nine, can experience new adventures on the west coast.
She told Harper's Bazaar magazine, "Just to have my kids be in the sun every day - picking avocados, going for a swim... Even for two years or something, and come back (to the U.K.) when they go to senior school."
Actress Gwyneth Paltrow is considering uprooting her kids from their gloomy London home and relocating to her native California for a few years so they can experience life in the sun. The Shakespeare in Love beauty and her rocker husband Chris Martin recently purchased a property in Brentwood, California and the Hollywood star admits she would love her son Moses, seven, and daughter Apple, nine, to experience new adventures Stateside - although she would want them to return to the U.K. to attend school.
She tells Harper's Bazaar magazine, "Just to have my kids be in the sun every day - picking avocados, going for a swim. Even for two years or something, and come back when they go to senior school."
Fashion-forward actress and cookbook author Gwyneth Paltrow is convinced her children with rocker Chris Martin will take after their parents because they are already developing an interest in style and music. The Iron Man star, who constantly tops polls of the best-dressed celebrities and recently released her latest culinary guide, It's All Good, has two kids with the Coldplay frontman, Apple, eight, and Moses, seven.
While it is too early to determine what career path her son and daughter will take, Paltrow admits they have already begun following in their parents' footsteps.
Gushing about her children during an appearance on U.S. TV cooking show Rachael Ray, she says, "They're amazing. They're very sweet, compassionate, hilarious kids. I feel so lucky that I had them, they are the best things that ever happened to me.
"My daughter's very into music. They both are very into music. They have a band together, they write songs. My daughter's very into fashion, she has those Top Model books, where you get to design clothes, she's amazing."
The busy mum admits Moses might even be a budding chef: "He's incredible! He's always with me in the kitchen. He can crack an egg perfectly, no shell. He's always trying different flavour combinations, he's always like, 'Well, what if we put popcorn with cheese... ' Actually one of his recipes is in the book!"
Actress Gwyneth Paltrow has laughed off recent reports suggesting she forces her children to follow an unnecessarily strict diet, insisting they are "normal kids" who snack on junk food. The dietary habits of the Oscar winner's family has become tabloid fodder in recent weeks thanks to her new cookbook, in which she shares the secrets of her diet.
In It's All Good, Paltrow reveals she often gives up dairy, sugar and gluten to lose weight, prompting speculation she imposes the same rules on her rocker husband Chris Martin and their two kids, Apple and Moses.
However, in a candid chat on U.S. TV medical series Dr. Oz, Paltrow insists she allows her youngsters regular treats, but healthy snacks help her seven-year-old son Moses battle skin condition eczema.
She explains, "My son has very bad eczema and he's allergic to gluten and he's allergic to cow dairy. I try, at home, to make everything gluten-free for him because the difference in his comfort is unbelievable when he's sticking to what he's meant to be eating...
"I don't know where they get some of this stuff! They say I don't give my kids carbs, and I'm feeding them seaweed... I have no idea. But they eat Oreos (cookies), too, and they're normal kids."
It would seem that Gwyneth Paltrow has the perfect life. She has two beautiful children, an adoring husband, and a successful career in Hollywood. But while Paltrow's life seems almost "perfect," the 40-year-old actress recently revealed that she underwent a devastating miscarriage during her third pregnancy, and that it nearly killed her.
During an interview with in the UK's Daily Mail Sunday You magazine, Paltrow admitted that her two children — Apple, 8, and Moses, 6 — with Coldplay frontman hubby Chris Martin, keep asking for a younger brother or sister. "My children ask me to have a baby all the time," she said. "And you never know, I could squeeze one more in. I am missing my third. I’m thinking about it."
Paltrow continued on to talk about her tragic miscarriage for the first time ever. "But I had a really bad experience when I was pregnant with my third," she said. "It didn’t work out and I nearly died. So I am like, 'Are we good here or should we go back and try again?'"

But despite the loss, Paltrow still feels like she may want to have another child. Her husband Martin contributes to the type of stability that a growing family needs. "Regardless of what happens in our marriage, I chose the best father," she said. "[Chris] is so good to the children and to know that you had kids with such a good man is a real weight off you. We are committed co-parents, we make all the decisions together and lean on each other for support."
Paltrow even confessed in the October issue of InStyle magazine that she may still want another child. "My brain says, 'Oh, I think I'm done, the kids are so big now, and I don't want to go back to changing diapers,'" she said. "But a part of me would love to have another. Of course, I'm old now!"

The Shakespeare in Love star has credited the exercise expert with helping her shed the stubborn baby weight she gained while pregnant with son Moses.
But the Oscar winner admits she was taken aback by Anderson's no-nonsense methods after she made her new client bare all.
Paltrow recalls, "With my daughter it had been easier (to lose weight), but this time, no matter what I did, I felt stuck. I couldn't shift the weight. But I met Tracy and she was this force from the second I met her.
"She pulled my pants off. I'll never forget it. She was like, 'Oh, my God, wow, I just am so surprised, because you look so good in clothes. I wasn't expecting this.'"
However, Paltrow insists Anderson's regimen put the spark back into her marriage to rocker Chris Martin, telling Redbook magazine, "It did such wonders for my life, my confidence, my sex life, everything."
