The daughter grew up very quickly and already at school age announced that she was planning to become an actress, greatly perplexing Blythe. And despite the numerous offers that came to the little girl, she had to forget about the film debut until she was 19 on the mother's admonition.
However, Gwyneth was unstoppable - without graduating from university, already in 1991, she starred in "Scream" and "Captain Hook", which made her a rising star. After filming, roles began to pour in on the girl: while her mother was still coming out of the “vacation” spent on raising children and getting secondary roles, Gwyneth was already playing in the foreground.
In the 2000s, when Paltrow literally shot, having played in 20 films and received her Oscar for "Shakespeare in Love" already at 26, her mother again got only a few secondary roles. However, after Blythe's appearance in a series of films about the Focker family, her career still improved a little - she was nominated for three Emmy and took part in several other projects ("Detachment" and the series "Patrick Melrose"). According to Gwyneth, the girl feels guilty for her mother's partly ruined acting career. The girl understands that Blythe had to abandon this field because of raising children. Danner herself does not hold a grudge against her successful daughter - a woman always publicly speaks out in her support and assists in all Gwyneth's endeavors.
