LOS ANGELES (WGGB) — Long-time actress and mother Gwyneth Paltrow is seeing some major backlash, after her comments about motherhood.

In an interview with E! News, Paltrow said that it was easier to be a regular working mother, than to be a movie actress.

She argued that mothers who work “9 to 5″ jobs had it easier, because they’re able to come home and see their children in the evening.

“I think to have a regular job and be a mom is not as,” Paltrow began, “of course there are challenges, but it’s not like being on set.”

Paltrow later responded by expressing how difficult it was to be a working mother.

However, the firestorm had already been lit and it didn’t just include angry mothers online.

Many editorials have been written in response to her comments, noting how well compensated these movie stars are for their efforts.

Some came out in support of Paltrow, but others, such as Mackenzie Dawson of the New York Post, were highly critical in their writings on the comments.
