American actress Gwyneth Paltrow opened up on parenthood during her October 27 appearance on Red Table Talk.

The 49-year-old actor said that she spends a lot of time with her kids.

The mother of two emphasized on giving liberty to children  to become who they want to be.

She said, "I read this quote. I think it was attributed to Banksy, the artist, who said something like.. this generation of parents will do anything for our kids, anything."

"You know, you see [it] with the college scandal or, you know, removing all their obstacles. Like, we will do anything for our kids except let them be who they actually are," said the veteran.

"And I read it, and I was like, I had chills, and I thought, ‘God,’ there are aspects of me that think, ‘Well, you should do it this way because, like, that worked for me,’ or ‘Let’s avoid this," Paltrow continued.

The Academy Award recipient said,  "I just tried to be really conscious of letting them emerge as who they are and being loving and supporting."

The Iron Man actor also talked about parenting young adults.  

 Referring to her daughter, Apple, she said, "I (expletive) it up all the time.... Like, I say the wrong thing. And especially right now ’cause she’s 17. Everything I say is wrong."
