‘And I was like: “No, I’m not!” And you’re like: “You have to do it, you have to!” And I was like: “I’m not gonna do it,”‘ she shared.
The Charlie’s Angels star recalled: ‘You were just on me all the time. You were like: “You have to. You don’t understand. If you don’t do this you will be so sad that you didn’t do it.”‘ And so I credit you so much with the fact that you never let up on me.’
Cameron said with a laugh: ‘You were so, you know, I would say, encouraging and also…’ prompting Gwyneth to finish: ‘…a pain in the a**.’
Gwyneth said: ‘I think I could see, and I knew what a natural mother you are. Some women aren’t but you, I was like: “You’re born to do it.”‘

‘Well, all of my: “I’m not going to do this,” was just fear,’ said Cameron. ‘I was just scared. I was afraid. I was afraid I wouldn’t, you know, find a partner. I had no luck – you know, I didn’t have people that I, in my life prior to that.’
‘Yeah, you had some real humdingers in there,’ said Gwyneth knowingly, and she and Cameron shared a huge laugh.
