"I have two beautiful stepchildren, who are the same age as mine," she said. "When I became a stepmother, when I knew I was going to become a stepmother, I was like, 'Sh*t, I have no idea how to do this. There's nothing to read. What do I do? Where do I step in? Where do I not? How do I do this?'"
Paltrow went on to add that she learned a lot about herself through the process, before asking Union how she's navigated becoming a stepmom to husband Dwayne Wayde's three children and a nephew they raise together. The L.A.'s Finest star took from personal experience, saying that she "tried to do the opposite of what I thought my stepmother did wrong or could have done better."
"Whoever you are, just be consistent so everyone can get used to who the hell you are really and you're not putting on an act and then the mask falls off," Union told Paltrow.
