39 year old American actress, singer, cook and Mrs Chris Martin, Gwyneth Paltrow has spoken out about, how the ever growing presence of black people in the entertainment business will help her children to grow up accepting people for who they are, regardless of race. Gwyneth admitted that this is much different to how things were when she was growing up.
Paltrow explained, "I don't want to bemoan the fact that it should've happened 50 years ago, because it's here now. And it's like the way I see it is that I have two little kids who are understanding the world in a time when Rihanna is on the cover of Vogue, and we have a black president. So their eyes are being as if they're experiencing the world for the first time. All of this stuff is just root, it's normal stuff for them. And that to me is what's so incredible."
She added, "When my daughter understood what a president was, it was a black man. It's not like me, where I grew up with all of these old white guys one after another. Their perspective on race and everything is completely open and completely different to how it was when I was a kid." Gwyneth Paltrow is set to reprise her role as Pepper Potts twice in the next two years. First, in The Avengers, which is released on May 4, 2012 and then in Iron Man 3, which is released on May 3, 2013.
