Gwyneth Paltrow Dreams of More Children, But `Definitely Not Right Away'

NEW YORK (AP) - Gwyneth Paltrow, who has two children with husband Chris Martin, says she's not ready to have more babies.

"I don't think so. Well, definitely not right away," the 34-year-old actress tells W magazine in its September issue, on newsstands Aug. 17.

Paltrow and Martin, the lead singer of Coldplay, have a 3-year-old daughter, Apple, and 1-year-old son, Moses.

"I have a dream version where I think, maybe in four years I'll have two in a row really quickly again - how fabulous to have a whole bunch of them!" she says. "But then at that point, when everyone's potty-trained and sleeping through the night, are you really going to go back?"

"I'd also like to work a bit. My husband really wants to adopt," she says. "So I don't know; I'm sort of open for anything."

Paltrow, who won a best-actress Oscar for 1998's "Shakespeare in Love," had small roles in last year's "Running With Scissors" and "Infamous."

Her upcoming films include "The Good Night," directed by her brother, Jake Paltrow, and "Iron Man," co-starring Robert Downey Jr.

"It's been a long time since I've done a big part in a movie, and I'm very excited about work now," she says.

The actress was recovering from knee surgery when she was interviewed by the magazine last month.

"I bashed it on some furniture" over Memorial Day weekend at the Malibu, Calif., home of Steven Spielberg, says Paltrow.

"I always try to do everything all at once, and to do it perfectly," she says. "I think it was the universe saying to me, `Just stop. You don't have to make yourself crazy.' It made me realize that I need to be slightly easier on myself and just be imperfect, or a mess, and it's OK."
