Star breaks down in tears – is her marriage to blame?

Gwyneth Paltrow broke down in tears on Wednesday night while watching her mother in a play.

While we’re sure her marriage woes had something to do with the star’s tears, it appears she was very emotional while watching her mom, famous actress, Blythe Danner, on-stage.

Blythe stars in The Country House which is playing at the Geffen Playhouse in Los Angeles.

A source told People magazine that the star was visibly emotional during the play: “She was tearing up at a scene where her mother – who plays a legendary actress – has a confrontation with her grown-up depressed son. It was sweet to see her watching her mom.”

Aww, that’s so sweet, we’re sure Gwyneth could use some cheering up these day with everything going on.
