Motherhood is set to halt Gwyneth Paltrow
's movie career because she doesn't want to become the sort of mom who puts stardom and success first. The actress feels sorry for peers who rarely see their kids due to their hectic schedules, and she insists she won't be joining them after she gives birth this summer. Instead, she plans to follow the example set by her own mother, actress Blythe Danner
, when she was a child. The Emma
star tells the upcoming issue of America's "W" magazine, which features the actress baring her pregnant belly on the cover, "There are certain women in this business who have children, and I just think, 'You must never, literally never, see them!' "You can't do movies back to back and see your child if they go to school... My mother turned down every fantastic movie there was. She turned down these amazing things that would have made her a huge movie star. "I might not work for ages. Acting is a fantastic job, but it's not going to define my life, much to my agent's horror."
