There are some things not even being a child of a celebrity parent can't shield you from.

And the loneliness of lockdown measures amid outbreaks of COVID-19 is definitely one of them.

As Gwyneth Paltrow revealed, her son has found it difficult to adjust to the many changes over the last year - including having to start high school remotely

The Oscar winning actor revealed it had been tough socially for the teenager, who was missing many rites of passage

"I think Moses my 14-year-old son is having the hardest time with it," she shared on the Jimmy Kimmel Live! show.

"What's great is that he's a skateboarder so he can do a lot of solo outside exercise and work on skills and tricks and things stuff like that."

But while he may have found a constructive way to pass the time, he was also trying to grapple with the social restrictions.

"But I think it's very hard to be 14 and as all the parents who are watching your show know, it's tough on the ones that are still in the most intense developmental stages, I sort of observe," Paltrow continued.

"My daughter is 16, she kind of knows who she is, she has her friends. And my son would have started high school in September, and it's hard socially."


The 48-year-old founder of Goop who shares her children with ex-husband and Coldplay frontman Chris Martin, also said she had been impressed with how adaptable kids throughout the world had been throughout the situation. 

The actor has since remarried to director/producer Brad Falchuk, who she lives with in Los Angeles, and is stepmum to his two teenagers Isabella and Brody.

While she and Martin have always publicly remained amicable, Paltrow last year opened up about the challenges of co-parenting on The Drew Barrymore Show.

"It's like you're ending a marriage but you're still in a family. That's how it will be forever," she shared.

"Some days it's not as good as it looks. We also have good days and bad days, but I think it's driving towards the same purpose of unity and love and what's best for [our kids]."
